      This sums up the well known Madness hits very well. It does have alot of good songs missing from it, but then if you want a more exhaustive collection, then The Business or The Lot would be the things to buy! (Both of which are very good also) But, this has digitally enhanced and it really does sound a bit more crystal clear than the CD versions of the older albums with the original versions of these songs. It's a must for those people that want Madness but not all of the old albums. Superb with no exception!

      This is a great compliation of much of the best stuff released by Madness. Their unique brand of sub-ska type whatever-it-is is brilliantly represented her, with the likes of Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love, Wings Of A Dove, Our House, My Girl and so on. If you are a Madness fan, and you don'r have many of the songs on this album, it's an absolute must. However, for music fans in general, this is a well recommended purchase, as Madness are a supremely likeable, supremely cheerful listening experience, and this is them at their best.

      I will start of this by listing all of the songs on this album, 1. The Prince 2. One Step Beyond 3. My girl 4. Night boat to Cairo 5. Baggy trousers 6. Embarresment 7. The return of the los palmos 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. Tomorrows just another day 16. Wings of a dove 17. The sun and the rain 18. Michael Caine 19. One better day 20. Yesterdays men 21. Uncle Sam This is where the differences occur, with the original Divine Madness, the next song is 22. (Waiting for the) Ghost Train Wheras on the Heavy heavy hits, the next song was The Sweetest girl, and the Ghost Train. On the new remastered Divine Madness the next songs after 22. are 23. Lovestruck (brilliant single from latest album, see my seperate review on the album Wonderful, for details), and Johnny the horse (likewise). I would reccomend this album without a doubt, I will write more on the actual songs soon, not that you don't know them all anyway!

      Divine Madness is a compilation of all the greatest songs that the Band Madness released in the early to mid 80s. Being a Madness fan, as soon as I saw this in the shops I had to buy it, and I would recomend that all Madness fans who haven't got this already to buy it the next chance that they get. It is superb. The album includes the following songs: The Prince, One Step Beyond, My Girl, Night Boat To Cairo, Baggy Trousers, Embarrassment, The Return Of The Los Palmas, Grey Day, Shut Up, It Must be Love, Cardiac Arrest, House of Fun, Driving In My Car, Our House, Tomorrow's Just Another Day, Wings Of A Dove, The Sun And The Rain, Michael Caine, One Better Day, Yesterday's Men, Uncle Sam and Ghost Train. Twenty-two songs to get you jumping around and singing along in true Madness style!

        If you are a madness fan, then this album is a must. 24 tracks from The Prince and One Step Beyond, right up to modern day Lovestruck and Johnny The Horse. Madness were arguably one of the best bands of the eighties, and certainly had the most original sound. Remember the days when everyone had the hair the hats and the rings? Remember being too young to understand what House Of Fun was really about? Aah, happy days when seemed madness were taking over the world. It's great to have them back. Every Madness track is a timeless classic. There never has been, and probably never will be, anyone quite like the nutty boys.
