A real return to form from the nutty boys - though the material will probably appeal to original fans which like the 'boys' themselves are now a bit older. Some of the themes of the songs will resonnate more strongly with them - Never knew your name and How can I tell you (about a father trying to tell/teach their child about the joys and sorrows of growing up)

Bought this after seeing Madness recently at the O2 where it made up most of their set, Death Of A Rude Boy was so catchy I had to try the CD. What a pleasant surprise, every song is brilliant, includes Never Knew Your Name another classic. Madness have grown up and this will be appreciated by all you 40/ 50 something's who remember The Prince!

Having been a lifelong fan since 'One Step Beyond', it's good to see The Nutty Boys back in full flight. Whilst their last couple of albums have not been bad (NW5 is an excellent track from the Liberty of Norton Folgate), almost every track on here is a cracker and harks back to the carefree days of Night Boat to Cairo, Baggy Trousers, et. al.

We sing Oui oui si si ja ja da da in the car on the way to school, our favourite song is track 2 - Never knew your name, brilliant song, has a bit of a "don't you want me baby" feel to it. Great Classic Madness Sound!! I am rediscovering madness as ~I was only 5 when iconic hits like "it must be love" was released.

This brings back memories of .....
My younger brother playing all his Madness albums loudly whilst I was trying to revise for my 'o' level english literature exam...
Attempting to do the Baggy Trouser Dance at the School Disco...
Watching Suggs and Co on old Top of The Pops programmes...
Oh those MEMORIES!!!!!!

Have been a fan for at least 25 years so was pleased when this album came out, if you are a fan of normal decent British music then you have to by this album its classic Madness.It also makes a very nice change to hear something that is not anything to do with the drivel we have to put up with from shows like the x factor.

I have been a Madness fan since I bought One Step Beyond as my first LP and have loved almost everything they have released. But I have to admit I did not get Liberty of Norton Folgate, for some reason it didn't sit well with me even though everyone else regards as their masterpiece. Previous to that I thought Wonderful was probably my favourite Madness album.
I didn't know about this album until I saw them advertised on Jools Holland and pre-ordered it immediately. On my first listen I was worried that there were too many references to the past - My Girl 2, Death of a Rude Boy sounding a bit Ghost Town, Never Knew Your Name a bit too like Embarrassment (at the beginning) and a great many snatches of music which reminded me too much of older pieces - but boy after a few listens this is brilliant, and in my opinion their strongest album to date. My kids all love it and after a week in the car are discussing certain songs, phrases and singing along (believe me this is unusual). It is brilliantly played, in particular by Chris Foreman and Mike Barson (although the latter has always been brilliant) and the is very well crafted as well as being great fun. Death of A Rude Boy, for me, is a bit strange in that it doesn't fit with the feel of the whole album, although I really like the song, it just seems a bit incongrous.
Everyone should own this album! Oh, nice to see the range of writers too!

This is everything a long standing Madness fan like me (I first saw them live in 1979when they were just starting out) would wish for - fresh, new songs that still have an unmistakably classic, retro-fitted shined up chrome-bumpered I-like-driving-in-my-car-while-playing-this Madness sound. Do I like it? Oui Oui...

Many reviewers have already stated in more detail what they think of this album so I'll keep it short. It's great! Most of the tracks are pure Madness and stand up well to their earlier stuff. One or two tracks have yet to grow on me, but as a whole the album works really well. Just buy it, you won't regret it.
