Pretty darn sweet,
This review is from: Human Racing (Audio CD)
I'm not claiming to be as big a Kershaw fan as some of the other reviewers on here, but I do have a soft spot for Human Racing. It was one of the first CDs I bought when I got my Ferguson player in 1985. There weren't a huge number of titles available so I took a chance on Nik's debut.
27 years later, I was pleased to see this upgrade and took advantage of the low price. I have to say that the remastering is first rate. Too many times nowadays, our ears are assaulted by overly compressed reissues that have you running back to the originals. Human Racing sounds lovely and it's nice to be reminded what an excellent singer and songwriter Kershaw is.
I'm not a massive remix fan so Disc 2 was largely redundant to me. There are a few new (to me) songs that I presume are the B-sides to HR's vinyl singles and these are decent enough to warrant repeated plays. There's also witty sleevenotes from Mr Kershaw himself, which makes it a splendid package, all in all.
So, Human Racing 2012 is absolutely worth your time, and like other reviewers here, I hope something similar for The Riddle is planned.
