5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait 27 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
There are two surprises about this album. The first is that it took 7 years after the solitary album from The Madness before Suggs finally branched out solo. The second surprise, especially to the casual Madness fan who might not have spotted Suggs as a key writer in the band (Ghost Train was his only solo credit), is how great it is.

If you were put off, as I was, from getting this album initially by the fact that the two hit singles from it were covers (decent but unspectacular versions of Cecilia by Simon and Garfunkel and I'm Only Sleeping by The Beatles), then be prepared to be impressed by just how good the rest of the album is. Significant credit for this must be shared by fellow nutty boy Mike Barson who shares the writing duties on several tracks including the exceptional Camden Town and Alcohol. 4 am was considered good enough to be reworked by the full Madness band for their "comeback" album a few years after this and while this version lacks some of the punch they give it, it is still a class track. Elsewhere "Green Eyes" is hauntingly down beat and memorable.

The only miss for me is the closing track "She's Gone" which tries a little too hard to get epic and doesn't quite get there. Overall this is a stunning debut. Thankfully it hasn't precluded further work with the full band, which has been getting better and better. On this evidence though Suggs is more than capable of punching his own weight solo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, continues the legacy of Madness 29 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is great music that approaches novelty, but just stays in electronic/pop. "I'm Only Sleeping" is a fantastic Ska cover, and ranks up with Mighty Mighty Bosstones. "Cecilia" is another great cover, this time with a Jamaican influence, much like Soup Dragons' "I'm Free." The rest of the disc is strong as well. "Green Eyes" and "She's Gone" are the most serious offerings, and are quite poignant.
If you like Madness, Taco, or Red Elvises you would probably like this. Pity its hard to find!

Lovely cd if your a madness fan then you will definitely want it, its a mature sound from a great solo artist in his own right, some fantastic writing classic sounds.
