    Brutally underrated artist [2] I'm quite young (sadly, I was born in late eighties, so I didn't even exist in the best music times) and I'm still discovering him... and I'm impressed. His lyrics are brilliant! Fantastic songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he was way ahead of his time. What a shame the world didn't pay enough attention to his music after his two first albums. 15 Minutes, Ei8ht, Radio Musicola and other... they are all great as well! And beautiful acoustic 'No Frills' and amazing collaborations like "Sometimes" or "Old Friend"... Fucking masterpieces. You're the winner if you please, Nik.

    I love his music, even if I'm really young for 80's music. But I think I'm nearly the only one who understands his music and the sayings behind it.

    Brutally underrated artist. To me, The Riddle is easily one of the best albums of the 80's.

    So sad to see his post 80's output ignored. 15 Minutes, To Be Frank, You've Got To Laugh and Eight are all great albums.

    It's quite a pity that most people know only The Riddle. Of course The Riddle is an awesome song, but it doesn't display all uncommonness of Nik Kershaw.
