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

Loved this collection, all the really brilliant hits & no fillers.For anyone who likes this nutty lot music ,then you won't go wrong with this cd.this took me back to the 80's when I first heard ' one step beyond' & other great songs like 'baggy trousers' ,'my house',driving in my car & 'my girl',all of which is included on this disc plus many more great hits.

Great CD, great fun. Has all the old tunes that I remember from my teenage years. Play it often in the car with the kids and we all join in the singing :) If you grew up listening to Madness then you should buy it.

All 22 singles up to the band's 1986 split, in chronological order, although some are the album versions rather than the single versions (except for later reissues when the single versions were used). This is one of over 10 different Madness compilation albums produced but is probably the most comprehensive. I had forgotten how great some of the songs were, and what a unique sound Madness developed.

I remember buying this initially when it came out on cassette and playing it so often I wore out two copies- thankfully my CD is a bit more resiliant. Basically any of Madness' greatest hits you can think off are here- it is an album that distills the essence of what made them popular.

What's not to like about this album? I've had it in various guises since it first came out in 1992 when the lads came out of retirement to give their fans a treat. Had it on CD, tape, the videos on VHS and have just picked it up on vinyl. I've been a fan since their early days, and at 44, their songs are absolutely timeless and always raise a smile. Of course I have got all the other albums and most of the singles, but you can't really complain about that track listing.

Zoverstocks ARE NOT "VERY GOOD". READ ON...
Stated CD quality is dubious from the stated "Very Good". Six CD's ordered together late Saturday night/Sunday morning. Expected all six to e sent together. Got one after a few days, the other five arrived together in a pack that would have held six, go figure? Duran Duran CD a lot of minor scratches plays fine (not very good). Howard Jones CD some minor scratches plays fine (suitable for very good). Aerosmith CD is very good with the jewel case protected by it's card outer sleeve. Madness CD has quite few minor scratches but has one major one. So far it plays ok but I have not listened to all tracks fully. has cracked jewel case. Human league CD again some scratches and cracked jewel case. The last CD was Adam Ant, cracked jewel case again, but what the hell was on the CD. Imagine a teething child with food in one hand and this cd in the other. Give it half an hour and the child has eaten food, sucked cd, repeat process, child confused tries to eat cd, eats more food, repeats process a few times, parent finds child removes cd and places back in jewel case as is and zoverstocks send it to me. Cd was covered in food both sides with dried liquid/saliva. I could not tell condition of cd surface as I could not see it. I had to wash the cd to remove the deposits and it was left to air dry. After drying the cd has many surface scratches (or teeth marks if I am right) but no serious ones hence as far as I can tell it plays fine. Considering the enormous variation in quality, the "Very Good" statement should be taken with a pinch of salt. It should be replaced with pot luck or plays fine (baby food excluded of coarse). Had to post service review here on the items as it is too long for a seller review.
