Lauded 2009 studio album of sophisticated pop by the London nutty boys ... their first album of original material in 10 years!
Despite being enamored with ska s Jamaican skank, Madness never forgot their working-class British roots. And the band s first album of new material in a decade owes a greater debt to the Kinks than to Prince Buster. London landmarks (the Hippodrome, Marks & Spencer) add sharp details to memories of a soured relationship on the piano-and-organ-led ''Sugar and Spice.'' The similarly wistful ''Forever Young'' weaves horn lines over minor-key piano plaints and a loping backbeat. It all looks backward unabashedly -- fitting for a band formed 30-plus years ago -- but no less resonant.
Four stars. --Spin

I couldnt help thinking that this would make a brilliant stage musical.
Similar feel to the Editors In This light and on this evening - though different type of music.
