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

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER

Following the truly magnificent `Liberty Of Norton Folgate', I have been eagerly awaiting the next release from Madness, and finally! Here it is.

With their last few releases they have constantly confounded my expectations by taking new directions. There were the excellent covers on `The Dangerman Sessions Vol 1'. Then, when I was expecting Vol 2 to be released, with more of the same, they released the mighty aforementioned `Liberty', a grand concept album that just blew me away. For their latest release they seem to have changed tack again, and recorded a stunning set of songs full of introspection and looking back over their musical career, while still containing the energy, humour and distinctive 2 tone nutty sound they made famous.

The album opens with `My Girl 2', a sequel to one of their best known early hits. But now instead of a relationship with his girlfriend, the singer is older, wiser, and talking about a relationship with his daughter. And so it goes, with song after song that seem very personal to members of the band, but are accessible and great to listen to. My personal favourite after a listen or two is `Death of a Rude Boy', which sounds very much like a tribute to Ian Dury (not the first Suggs has recorded - the excellent `Oranges and Lemons' on Jools Holland and Friends was also a tribute to Dury).

The band were on form in the recording studio, after all these years working together they are a seamless unit, each knowing just what is required. They get right into the groove, and deliver just what they have always delivered, a damn fine set of get you up and dancing songs with wit and vigour. An excellent album, and one that will be looked on as one of their better recordings, a bright burning light even in the shadow of their previous release.

5 stars, and long may they continue!

5.0 out of 5 stars My..., have they grown! 30 Oct 2012
Format:Vinyl
A fantastic release, accompanied by a marvellous tour (they played a set of 23 songs in Dusseldorf, Germany last week) and showing that the band isn`t running out of ideas even after more than 30 years in the music business. Compared to 'Liberty' they sound slightly fresher and more uptempo than before, grabbing the listener's attention with a timeless and grooving 'My girl 2' and finally leading to the classy earcatcher 'Death of a rude boy' with a snappy bassline that can be listened to again and again without getting boring. 'Oui Oui ...' is definitley a highlight, containing a fine mixture of ska, pop and rocksteady tunes which are a hallmark of excellence in this music genre for years to come. My personal favourites beside the aforementioned 'My girl 2' and 'Death of ...' are 'La Luna' and 'Kitchen floor'. Highly entertaining stuff where I'd simply say "YES" to a purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars NEW 29 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The boys are back & brilliant as ever. What more can you say they are still delivering good catchy magical tunes over 30 years since they started.
CD starts off with the My Girl 2 which grows on you more & more every time you here it & ends on a heavy Ska beat of Death of a Rude boy (if you do not include bonus tracks). If you are an old fan or new to Madness do get this CD you will not be disappointed with it. Also if you get the chance go & see them live it is a great happy fun filled experience not to be missed for fans of all ages & if not a fan you will by the end of a concert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madness are sure the best! 30 Oct 2012
By Craig Taylor VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was always going to be hard for Madness to produce a decent follow up album to 2009's critically acclaimed The Liberty of Norton Folegate, but with Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da Madness have produced one of their finest albums ever.
The album consists of 13 beautiful pop songs, ranging from the up beat highs; 'Misery', 'So Alive', 'How Can I Tell You?' to deep emotional numbers such as; 'Never Knew Your Name', 'Powder Blue' and 'Leon'.
Madness have once again used the same ingredients as they always have done, as there is clear echoes from their previous out put that can be heard on this album. The track 'Misery' wouldn't feel out of place on the bands debut album 'One Step Beyond' and La Luna would fit nicely on 'The Rise and Fall'.
All 6 band members have had a hand in writing the songs on this album and you can tell, as there is so much variety in songs and styles. Not that that is a bad thing. The Madness stamp of quality is clear on every track. My personal favourites are 'So Alive', 'Misery' and 'Never Knew Your Name'.
Ultimately this is another strong outing from one of Britain's favourite bands and is probably better than the last one. If you want something upbeat and at the same time sad, this this is the album for you

By Aron
Format:Audio CD
It's always been hard to pin down Madness' music style, which is one reason they are so interesting. Broadly speaking I feel their music falls into four categories, all of which are evenly demonstrated on Oui oui, si si, ja ja, da da.

Style 1: Fast Rocksteady, often knees-up party pieces. More typical of early material with songs such as One Step Beyond and Baggy Trousers.
Style 2: Slower heavily ska-rooted. Features all through their career with tracks such as Grey Day and Forever Young from The Liberty of Norton Folgate.
Style 3: Upbeat nutty, ska influenced. Very much a trademark sound across many albums and typified by The Sun & The Rain from 1983 and NW5 from 2008
Style 4: Slower and sublime. A more hit and miss category which when they get it right has produced some of their greatest songs, such as It Must Be Love and One Better Day.

As I like all four styles this album is easy for me to give 4-stars to. If you prefer one or more styles over the others, it's a question of allowing some of the tracks to grow on you a bit.

Here's how the tracks break down by style

Style 1: Misery will certainly have the crowds bouncing at the up and coming tour. Reminiscent of the song Madness this is trademark Music Hall and just great fun. And the break to Beethoven's 5th Symphony in the middle made me chuckle a bit and shows an appreciation of classical music that started with Swan Lake on One Step Beyond.

So Alive and Black and Blue are both energetic and instantly danceable. Musically aligned with the album Madness 7 they tell the stories of middle-aged men in typically witty Madness style.

Style 2: Three songs in a row take this route. When Madness use violins, it always adds dimension.
