Biography

Anybody who says they don’t like Madness is very probably lying. Madness are, quite simply, a bona fide national treasure; a band who inspire such goodwill and bonhomie that we are lucky to be graced with their continuing presence on Britain’s music scene. The archetypal pop group and ultimate singles band, Madness have been making records since 1979 and – during their 33 ... Read more in Amazon's Madness Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Grey Day 6 Mar 2013
By Rob
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Called "Heavy Heavy Hits" on the Amazon description but in fact "Divine Madness" was delivered from my order, and I'm not complaining - this is a superb collection, even better than "Complete Madness" which I owned on vinyl originally. Like many people possibly I have tended to under-estimate Madness in recent years because of their fun, jokey image - but listening to this album the songs sound so fresh, vital, clever, and the music so well produced and catchy - as to put any misgivings aside. This lengthy collection of 22 songs is all good, and certainly I know the first 16 songs extremely well. Songs 17 to 22 I am less familiar with, but every single one is a corker.

Special mention from me goes to Embarrassment, Grey Day, House of Fun, Our House, Tomorrow's Just Another Day, The Sun and the Rain, One Better Day and Yesterday's Men where the quality seems to rise in song structure and lyrics, as well as vocally. I also love Baggy Trousers and My Girl. At the less good end, perhaps Wings Of A Dove, Driving In My Car, Return of the Los Palmas 7, The Prince and One Step Beyond but having said that, I enjoy all those too. Recommended. The track listing is:-

1. The Prince
2. One Step Beyond
3. My Girl
4. Night Boat To Cairo
5. Baggy Trousers
6. Embarrassment
7. Return Of The Los Palmas 7
8. Grey Day
9. Shut Up
10. It Must Be Love
11. Cardiac Arrest
12. House Of Fun
13. Driving In My Car
14. Our House
15. Tomorrow's Just Another Day
16. Wings Of A Dove
17. The Sun And The Rain
18. Michael Caine
19. One Better Day
20. Yesterday's Men
21. Uncle Sam
22. Waiting For The Ghost Train

5.0 out of 5 stars Nutty Boys in a Nutshell... 5 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember buying this initially when it came out on cassette and playing it so often I wore out two copies- thankfully my CD is a bit more resiliant. Basically any of Madness' greatest hits you can think off are here- it is an album that distills the essence of what made them popular.

Loved this collection, all the really brilliant hits & no fillers.For anyone who likes this nutty lot music ,then you won't go wrong with this cd.this took me back to the 80's when I first heard ' one step beyond' & other great songs like 'baggy trousers' ,'my house',driving in my car & 'my girl',all of which is included on this disc plus many more great hits.
