This review is from: Divine Madness (Audio CD)
Called "Heavy Heavy Hits" on the Amazon description but in fact "Divine Madness" was delivered from my order, and I'm not complaining - this is a superb collection, even better than "Complete Madness" which I owned on vinyl originally. Like many people possibly I have tended to under-estimate Madness in recent years because of their fun, jokey image - but listening to this album the songs sound so fresh, vital, clever, and the music so well produced and catchy - as to put any misgivings aside. This lengthy collection of 22 songs is all good, and certainly I know the first 16 songs extremely well. Songs 17 to 22 I am less familiar with, but every single one is a corker.

Special mention from me goes to Embarrassment, Grey Day, House of Fun, Our House, Tomorrow's Just Another Day, The Sun and the Rain, One Better Day and Yesterday's Men where the quality seems to rise in song structure and lyrics, as well as vocally. I also love Baggy Trousers and My Girl. At the less good end, perhaps Wings Of A Dove, Driving In My Car, Return of the Los Palmas 7, The Prince and One Step Beyond but having said that, I enjoy all those too. Recommended. The track listing is:-

1. The Prince
2. One Step Beyond
3. My Girl
4. Night Boat To Cairo
5. Baggy Trousers
6. Embarrassment
7. Return Of The Los Palmas 7
8. Grey Day
9. Shut Up
10. It Must Be Love
11. Cardiac Arrest
12. House Of Fun
13. Driving In My Car
14. Our House
15. Tomorrow's Just Another Day
16. Wings Of A Dove
17. The Sun And The Rain
18. Michael Caine
19. One Better Day
20. Yesterday's Men
21. Uncle Sam
22. Waiting For The Ghost Train
