if you are already into madness, you probably won't need this compilation but if, like me, you need an introduction, this could be what you are looking for. i was never a big madness fan : i didn't dislike them nor did i particularly take much notice of them. my loss! a friend recently lent me "wonderful" - so i could listen to the track with ian dury! - and i enjoyed the whole album. as a result, i bought this collection and i loved it : this is witty, musical and intelligent stuff. the videos are nearly as good : very imaginative and amusing. i'm not a big fan of pop videos but these i thoroughly enjoyed. my only small niggle is that a lot of them seemed to have mono soundtracks. if you wonder what madness are all about, buy this CD/DVD set. for less than a tenner you get 23 tracks; that's good value even without the videos!
