But this rubbish happened all the time. Public decided to go against the great Kim Wilde in 1983, yet her third album is one of the best records ever made by anyone, and the best 2 German acts of the decade weren't allowed releases anywhere. The 80s made no sense, how can you start buying albums by people you love than stop a few years later, even though their standard of quality remains unchanged. Proof that teenagers and older people were sniffy idits back then. Yet in the 90s to now all the crappy acts are still here and get new dumb audiences every year so not outgrowing then. I swear Kershaw saw and heard the future with his summing up of the music scene on the song 'Radio Musicola' itself.
Most acts weren't seen or supported as ongoing ones, so no wonder he was dumped on this album, his twin Howard Jones got the same, though hung round a little longer. Nik also harmed himself-the gap of a full year between the first single and then the next two and the album itself would have been acreer-killing. The album sold dismally for him, making No.47 in a three week chart stay, yet worse was to come when 1989's "The Works" failed a placement altogther, but it was to be expected. Nonetheless the 2 singles from that-'One Step Ahead' and 'Elizabeth's Eyes' are two of his best ever.
