What I enjoy about Madness above most other Ska bands is that their early music is sheer fun spirited song & dance, written in an era where it was becoming much cooler to throw a lot of social commentary into the lyrics. My favorite examples are a little 60s pop-culture with "Tarzan's Nuts" (one of the TV Tarzan theme songs), "Rockin' In A Flat" (if you have trouble waking up in the morning, spin this tune first thing after you creak out of bed); and "Night Boat To Cairo."
"One Step Beyond" is worth the extra money spent over their various compilations. A very good second place is their second album "Absolutely," but their debut CD rocks above them all!
I danced to it in '80 when my little brother first brought it home.
I danced to it non-stop with Lynne in the summer of '87.
My daughter and I danced our hearts out to it last night.
This record is joyous. It's nutty. It's Madness.
This band really started it off for me as far as following bands was concerned. I later graduated to The Police then U2 and REM and havent really followed a band so closely since.
This band made me get a crew cut!!!
The sad thing is, the only album I have ever bought on CD is Absolutely which was my all time favourite. The vinyls are gathering dust somewhere. I saw them play at the Manchester Apollo sometime in the early 80's and they were amazing.

The album/cover is not at all in perfect condition.
Corner bends on the cover and light surface scratches on the vinyl, kinda roached. Read more

this simple and silly piece of music made many many people get out of the house put on their grand father's pork pie hat and dance their way across the street.Published on June 8, 2014 by will crow
