5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. D. K. Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 May 2014
Over the years there have been numerous Madness compilations, but most have been single disc releases which haven't had the time to go beyond the obvious hit singles. So one good thing about this budget release from Metro is that it has the space to include less obvious album cuts alongside the more familiar hits. This is what the two CDs contain -

Disc 1:

One Step Beyond, It Must Be Love, Shame And Scandal, House Of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Death Of A Rude Boy, Our House, Grey Day, The Sun & The Rain, Madness, Michael Caine, Bed & Breakfast Man, Shut Up, On The Beat Pete, Take It Or Leave It, Swan Lake

Disc 2:

Night Boat To Cairo, Embarrassment, The Prince, The Opium Eaters, Lovestruck, The Communicator, Wings Of A Dove, Forever Young, Cardiac Arrest, In The Rain, Calling Cards, Sign Of The Times,Tomorrows Dream, Saturday Night, Sunday Morning, Deceives The Eye, In The City

So there's something from most parts of Madness' career, with the notable exception of the Mad Not Mad album. Presumably the cost of licencing tracks from Virgin/EMI was too high - a shame, since any compilation would have been enhanced with the likes of "I'll Compete", "Yesterday's Men", "Mad Not Mad" or "Burning The Boats".

Some of the songs chosen are a bit left-field. "Calling Cards" from The Rise and Fall, instead of the title track for example? The choice of "Forever Young" from The Liberty of Norton Folgate, ahead of "NW5" is another strange pick. And no room for "Victoria Gardens"? Pity.

For anybody looking for an introduction to the group, this does at least have the virtue of going beyond the obvious choices - even if some, as I've said, seem to have been selected at random.

OK, so I've got Complete Madness, Utter Madness, It's Madness, It's Madness Too, Divine Madness, The Business, The Heavy Heavy Hits, The Lot, Total Madness, Ultimate Madness, A Guided Tour and the ska album (Forever Young) and collections put together for the Our House musical and the Take it or Leave it movie. So please tell me why is there the need to release this...? It's not even definitive (the Mad Not Mad album and related singles are ignored).
