Artist: Madness

Album: Wonderful

Appears On (Mixes): I'm a Wound and a Sword, A Victim and an Executioner

Song Notes: Madness is currently enjoying a surge of popularity with their new The Dangermen Sessions: Volume 1 album of ska covers, but in 1999, they released a new album of pop songs called Wonderful that never made it out in the US. That's really too bad, as Madness' pop songs are exquisite and Wonderful was just as good as anything else they'd ever released. When I got to see Madness live, I was a little disappointed they didn't have copies of Wonderful for sale (although they had plenty of the new record, which is, indeed, very good). I wish Madness had a better hold in this country; the release of The Dangermen Sessions: Volume 1 has only slightly improved the state of Madness bins in US Record Stores; where they used to be made up of a bunch of compilations with different titles but the same tracks, now they're made up of those compilations and a copy or two of The Dangermen Sessions: Volume 1… Little steps, little steps. (Speaking of which, though, sometimes you can find copies of Keep Moving in bins as well—if you see it, pick it up; particularly the US edition on the Geffen Goldline label. Not only does it have a couple more tracks than the UK version does, it also retails for something like $6 or $7 new. You can't beat that with a stick, and it's my favorite album of theirs, so, hey.) - Rev. Syung Myung Me
