  • 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.
  • An 80's heartthrob...ask my cousinettes.
  • I love his music, even if I'm really young for 80's music.
  • Pure 80's!!! :-)
  • The Riddle" don't need remakes and remixes [6]
  • 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.
  • nostalgic. Blockbustered in Japan
  • KurtonLFM ... Wow!
