You've Got to Laugh is the seventh studio album by Nik Kershaw, released on 26 October 2006 under his own record label. In a 2008 interview, Kershaw spoke of the album. "You've Got to Laugh took about five years to get together. That wasn't intense recording, obviously. I just waited until I'd got enough tracks and that was the time to release it. Had it not been for my girlfriend, it probably wouldn't have been released at all. The songs are all about my own experiences or those of people around me; they're about friends and foes; they're about real life, which means there's nothing too glamorous going on".

This is Mr Kershaws' latest album. As a long term fan and follower of his music, I was a bit aprehensive pre release. I didn't know what it would be like as his previous album To Be Frank ( highly recommended ) was a strange and wonderful offering, showing a dark and interesting alter ego side to him.

However, cleverly, Nik put out on his website a couple of 20 second tasters and after listening to only them as bait ! I was hooked. The album was released and I listened avidly. About 4 songs instantly jumped out at me - the ones you can remember a couple of hours later. Some were slow burners, and its these you have to watch out for as they are the true true classics.

Please do not just remember the 80's stuff that all the radio stations play - YES they put him on the map. BUT these new offerings have made him travel round the map with a group of avid followers - join us - This man is a genius end of.

I must confess, this is the first Nik Kershaw album I've purchased since, ooh let me see, 'Human Racing' back in the 80's. I bought it on the strength of the 3x tasters on his official site, and very glad that I did so, because there are some great tunes on this album, very catchy stuff indeed. I now intend to go and purchase all the albums Mr Kershaw has released in between 'Human Racing' and this one, as clearly, I've been missing out! Strongly recommended album. Nice one Nik!
