This man shaped my youth with his lyrics, and his melodies can still get the hairs standing on the back of my neck after 20 years. The first live concert I ever went to was this guy in 1987 at Newcastle City Hall on the Musicola tour, and I have seen some of the biggest and most talented acts in the world since, and many smaller talented ones too. Kershaw is still my number one. If I ever get a time machine, that's where I'm going to first!!

However, to get back to this album, everyone should listen to it at least once. Everyone should own it. But I quite like the fact that it is a hidden gem that not many people have the privelege of knowing. Everyone has an album which shaped their youth - and hence their life, their values and their morality. This is mine.

You'll probably never read this, but thanks for everything Nik. You are a true star, and although I love almost everything you have done, for me this is your finest work. Peace. LABATYD.

It saddens and angers me that Nik Kershaw has never received the credit he so deserves. Radio Musicola was released in 1986 at what should have been the height of his career, after his incredible performance at Live Aid a year earlier and the mainstream sucsess of both Human Racing and the Riddle, Nik was on a roll musically. Radio Musicola saw Nik growing up as an artist, with the first single Nobody Knows having just tickled the top 40 and the album selling well at first but then fading it was clear Nik had outgrown himself, outgrown the teen idol that had ensured major sucsess in 1984 and 1985, I guess the music buying public just didn't get it!!
Without doubt this album is an absolute must for any aspiring songwriter, guitarist and music lovers in general, there is not a dull moment on Radio Musicola from the heart rending Life Goes On to the guitar virtuosity on What the papers say to the absolute sublime by the way of L.A.B.A.T.Y.D.
One day this man will be recognised as an icon for musicality and will be prepelled to where he belongs.
Buy this album, play it, love it and be proud that you know something the world has yet to wake up to.

Frequently quoted in 'Best Album' lists, this disk has a vitality and presence that makes it stand out in any collection. The sound quality (even after 20 years of so-called 'development') is still viewed as demonstation standard, with a depth and clarity that ensures its place in any 'classic' lineup. An absolute 'must have' and an outstanding contribution to 80's pop.

First I dislike the rating system, for this is not a five star but a 4,5 star album. And I can't express this anywhere else but here.
So, why 4,5 then? Well it's a very good album, I like every song of it, but there's not one song which stands out to me, but that's not a bad thing too.
On "Human Racing" there are some outstanding songs and some odd ones, which are good too, like "Dancing Girls". This album is more consistent, no odd songs or really very very good songs. That's perhaps why at the time it wasn't a big hit, and that's a shame. Because it is still a hidden gem and "Nobody Kows".
In my opinion Nik Kershaw is a genius with a great voice and on his third album he delivers again. So I had to give it five stars because four is just not enough. The only thing that bothers me, is the fact, that these albums are almost all pretty expensive to obtain, I've got them, but someone else has got to pay big in order to get a listen to his great music. So you already have to be a big fan to do so. But it's worth it, every album Nik Kershaw has made is worth every penny, cent or whatever and this album is no exception. Listen, become a fan and spread the word. If you're new to Nik start with The Essential, you'll become a fan and you'll want to hear more. And his latest album won't disappoint you either.

Ok I'm a big fan of Nik, having bought every version of everything he has released in the UK. When this was released in 1986 I thought this was so destined to be a huge hit. The tracks are brilliently composed, crafted and produced. But sadly air play and the public decided to listen to others. Buy the download if you can't afford the Cd, this is such a good album. And I was listening again to it today and it doesn't sound dated at all.

If you love good song craft and good melodies you won't be disappointed by this album. Buy it!

Check out The Works, The Riddle and Human Racing as well.

This album is an amazing piece of work which deserved much more commercial success. Radio Musicola, L.A.B.A.T.Y.D., Life Goes On, James Cagney and Violet To Blue are the real highlights. You can put them on repeat play and never get tired of listening to them. Wonderful chord changes throughout. Nik is a songwriting and instrumental genius. It would be great if the record company could re-master this album as they did with Human Racing and The Riddle.
