5.0 out of 5 stars Madness are sure the best!, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da (Audio CD)
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
