Good, but not a 'Kershaw classic'
on 9 August 2012
For me this a good, solid album, but certainly not his best, and doesn't reach the same heights as 'You've got to laugh' or '15 Minutes'. There are some fantastic tracks on this album though, 'These tears', 'The sky's the limit', 'Runaway' and 'Rock of ages' being particular highlights, but i'm not really a fan of the very Celtic sounding 'Red strand', I just felt it doesn't fit in with the rest of the album. 'Bad day you're having' has an essence of 'The Works' album (not that that is a bad thing!) So to sum up, it is a good effort, but after waiting this long for new music, I was slightly disappointed in this album. If you are someone wanting to listen to 'modern day' Nik Kershaw after many years, buy '15 minutes' or 'You've got to laugh' as every track is a winner, but there is still plenty to enjoy on the album for 'Kershaw completists'!
