Every great band should have an album like this in their back catalogue: more musically mature than their debut set, more diverse than their second album, containing hit singles, although not as big as those on the difficult third album and far easier to digest than the concept album that followed the first greatest hits. Yeah, all great bands should have an album that holds a special place in many fans' hearts as the one that distilled everything the band could do into one fine blend.

Madness are a great band, make no mistake about that.

Keep Moving was Madness's 1984 album. The cover photo was awful, although the fonts for the band name and album title are amongst my favourites. The reason I mention this? Madness were always a very visual band, to such an extent that when I'm listening to the music without a video I see shapes and patterns in the music. Perhaps this is something I shouldn't admit to on a public forum, but who cares? Keep Moving is Madness's most shapely album and I love it unashamedly.

This album gets 6 stars out of 5 from me.

Until The Liberty Of Norton Folgate album came along in 2009 it was, without any doubt, my favourite Madness album. Now it sits somewhere in my top two Madness albums.

There are so many reasons for this: Keep Moving includes my favourite Madness single in One Better Day, my long-time favourite album track in March Of The Gherkins, some of the best lyrics the band had written on Time For Tea and the utterly utterly sublime Prospects.

Madness released this album with sad hearts as they knew that this would be the last to feature the talents of keyboardist/writer Mike Barson. The album has many highlights- the up tempo sounds of 'Waltz of the Gherkins', 'Turning Blue', the classic 'Michael Caine' and The melancholy of 'One better Day' and 'Prospects'. This is a bit more mature stuff from the Nutty Boys. Definately one to listen to if you are a true fan of Madness.

Keep Moving was Madness's 5th studio album in as many years. It was their last album on the Stiff label, but more importantly, it was their last album (for many years) with keyboardist and key (but certainly not sole) songwriter Mike Barson. It was the end of an era; the fifth and final album in what could be considered a 5 album suite, which had started 5 years earlier in 1979 with the ska driven One Step Beyond.

The lead single from Keep Moving, Michael Caine, had been released before the album, and had entered the top 20 (but just failed to make the top 10). It was a strong single, but didn't really give away too much about what the forthcoming album would be like. It also had Carl Smyth on vocals, which may have thrown a few people (even though he had already taken lead vocal duties on Madness Is All In The Mind more than a year before).

On very first listen to Keep Moving it was clear that there were 3 absolutely brilliant stand-out tracks: One Better Day, Victoria Gardens and Prospects. As soon as the album came out I remember playing these to a friend of mine (who wasn't particularly into Madness) and he thought all 3 were superb. In particular he wanted to hear One Better Day again, and again, and again! It has become, of course, one of their strongest and best liked songs.

Other tracks worthy of note are Turning Blue (a great drum part on this one), March Of The Gherkins and Give Me a Reason, which was a great closer to the album, and to part 1 of the Madness story.

The arrangements for some of the tracks are boosted by strings and lively brass sections (Keep Moving, Victoria Gardens). The final track, Give Me A Reason, seems to have everything in it but the kitchen sink!

The extras on here are pretty good too.

This is an excellent album, I bought it on the week it was released and still listen to it now. Its definately a mature madness album and I think recorded the peak of their songwriting prowess. The melodies are just beautiful, check out one better day, the lyrics deal with issues from homelessness to spousal abuse but with in a sensitive way that is not patronising but real. My favorite track is reggae dub tinged Victoria gardens which combines a wonderful lyric about the early days of Thatchers reign with a brilliant tune and their most ambitious ever arrangement. If you are a fan you must own this album I don't think they or most other bands have ever made a better one.

Keep Moving was the fifth studio album released by the band Madness and it is a shame to say that it is often forgotten about by the music loving public. Keep Moving is perhaps Madness's strongest albums.

The nuttiness that made madness famous is alomost completely gone on this album, instead replaced by emotional clever songs, that are both lyrically and musically spot on. Some of the lyrics in songs such as Victoria Gardens and March of the Gherkins really make you think and reflect up on life. Musically this album is spot on, with some really great orchestral pieces amongst the songs, Give Me A Reason is a good example of this.

Don't be put off by what I've said above, as this is still a Madness record, Sugg's vocals are brilliant as ever, Mike Barson's (who left the band after this album) keyboard skills are forever present, Thommo's sax bursts through when you least expect it and even Chas gets to do lead vocals on a few tracks too. How about that!

The original album on CD1 contains the brilliant single Michael Caine, which features the great man himself and One Better Day. CD2 contains the classic stand alone singles Wings of a Dove and The Sun and The Rain. Plus you get all of the b-sides and 12inch mixes too, and a handy book with sleeve notes by Phil Jupitus.

Like the other album release, this is a well presented package and a must have album. If you liked the Liberty of Norton Folgate you'll love this and if you like Madness you'll like this, there greatest piece of work!
