5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising 9 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I learned about this band from a friend last summer, starting with Industrial Silence, which I loved. But there is something about this disk that just fascinates me. This is a truly great band with a lead singer who has an outstanding voice, which he varies in many different textures, and an amazing sense of timing. The mesmerising Hands Up I Love You (my favourite) is a case in point. The band also vary their instrumentals. They can wail away with the best of them, but they can also stroke the softest of sounds out of those guitars. This is not cheerful music - it's much more atmospheric - mesmerising. I am doing my best to turn friends onto this band, and when you have heard this disk, you will probably want to do likewise.

5.0 out of 5 stars a brilliantly emotive and original piece of work 26 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nightly Disease may not have quite as many of Madrugada's seminal tracks as the ground breaking Industrial Silence, but it's still a brilliantly emotive and original piece of work. The deluxe version offers an additional 19 tracks and is well worth the extra. It's impossible to catagorise Madrugada's work other than to say that they somehow manage to skip through the different musical genres without ever losing the central core of their unique musical vision. Buy, listen and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars escape to a dark landscape 15 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is not music for fun in the sun unless you'r all dressed up in black, as well your mind would be . The music goes well along with the dark and the solitude, but it's yet uplifting! Not so melancolic as their debut album Industrial Silence, but more straigth forward rocklike this time. The vocals is following the paths of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen, but with its own signature.
The lyrics are more poetry like than a mainstream rock and pop
songtext. Dive into this on a dark night anf catch the disease!

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder Balladesque 2 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A buddy of mine turned me on to this, saying it was "murder balladesque". Didn't know what he meant. So, I picked up their previous release, INDUSTRIAL SILENCE & was unimpressed. At his urging, I got my hands on this. This time, I got what he was saying. With vocals faintly reminiscent of Jim Morrison & guitar stylings on par with bands like Radiohead & Sparklehorse, I found the whole thing irresistable. And I'm not even a fan of those bands. The lyrics are none too bad either. "Dead End Mind" especially. Tunes like "Sister", "Black Mambo" & "Step Into This Room" could serve as the soundtrack to some slick, lurid Film Noir caper. Musically, things are sleepy and mellow except for "Two Black Bones" which comes off like a more sombre version of the Birthday Party. Goth fans would probably adore this, but lyrically & sonically it's a bit more left of center to be so easily categorized. Moody & sinsiter as it all sounds, one gets the feeling that these guys aren't painting it black just to be cool. Lines like, "I've wasted my life in a dead end mind" are a bit more thoughtful than your usual Goth fare.
From the Cardigans & Bettie Severt, Scandanavian/Norwegian bands have had their moment in the sun over here. As of late, The Hives seem to be enjoying a certain amount of vogue. So, I'm at a loss as to why these guys haven't had their day in the music press. Perhaps it's because they're too slick & subtle next to all the hype. Regardless, I still can't help but keep coming back to this. Especially, after the clock strikes twelve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmmmmm 22 Dec 2003
By "big-apple" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this, I discovered one of the most beautiful songs I ever heard: Step into this room and dance for me. The tension bilds, seems like wanting to burst out of the speakers but instead it is released very slow very calm, step by step, while the hair on my arms raises higher and higher. Also a masterpiece: Hands up I love you: give it a few listenings and you will discover! Tip: go and sit very close to the speakers and you'll hear things you haven't heard before. But don't put it too loud, you'll ruin the sphere that way! The rest is very various: some very strong rocknumbers but at the end the songs become more soft. Maybe a bit boring. Sister for instance is nothing but boring and "Only when you're gone" is good but it lasts too long, in the end it is leading nowhere and you begin to wonder when it's finally going to stop. Nevertheless: good CD, but when it's nearing the end: keep your finger at the skip-button!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fatal Attraction 22 July 2002
By Sandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I positively fell in love with this album. The singer deep, dark voice and the general somber glow of the ensemble fascinate me. If you like heavy guitars and prominent rhythm section, you will enjoy "Nightly Disease part II", a basic rock song, "Lucy One", where the deep voice is surfing above a sonic wall and "We are go".
The other tracks, mixing rock and blues, are mesmerizing. "Black Mambo" opens with a great guitar solo and sets the voodoo seduction of the album. The mysterious and sensual "Step into this room and dance for me" is fascinating as a snake, so is the closing track "Only when you're gone". The bass line of "Hands Up I love You" is hypnotizing. This track makes me think about Chris Rea, who would play under the moon rather than under the sun. "A deadend mind" and the more upbeat "Two black bones" have the same quality.
I like "The Frontman" for the story telling style of the vocals, the progressive increase in power of the guitars and the regular beat of the drums which forces you to slowly head bang along. "Into heartbeats" layered vocals are giving the song an atmospheric choir feels while textured guitars sustain them. The 9:01 minutes long "Sister" is a slow track that takes you on a strange dream. The electric guitar builds up a storm in the background.
I sometimes though about Jim Jarmusch "Dead Man" and its soundtrack by Neil Young, maybe because of the impression of unreality some of these songs create. This album slips in your veins like some nightly poison. Recommended to night birds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing and mature rockmusic 21 Oct 2001
By M Flamman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow, this cd and this band from Norway are really an experience and worth listening to. This is very mature and relaxing rock or popmusic, with excellent melodies, great musicianship and beautiful singing. Some songs remind me of seventies bands like the Doors or the Velvet Underground (or even Sonic Youth), but the most songs are something more laid-back. Some people say that the voice of the singer sounds a bit like Nick Cave or Leonard Cohen, and indeed it does: the singer has a beautiful voice, dark, deep, yet warm and relaxing. Others say that the music sounds a bit like nineties bands like Grandaddy or Sparklehorse, and as far as I know those bands, it does quite a bit.
This is one of the best cd's I've listened to the last couple of years, and every fan of the more mature popmusic of last couple of years, like Sparklehorse, Tindersticks or 16 Horsepower, should really try this - I know that a lot of people would like this!

By KOURKOULOS NIKOS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I give 4,5 stars and not 5 because their first album is a masterpiece, and this album is close to be a masterpiece. IF you like alternative , grungr and hard rock you will love them. The first 5 tracks are simple amazing and the rest are very good. Its a must for anyone .
