The Dangermen Sessions, Volume One (2005)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Aug 16, 2005; Lead Performance: Madness; Genre: Rock

Madness' first disc in six years isn't so much a comeback as it is a pure lark on which the band runs through 12 covers of some beloved oldies — including Desmond Dekker's ''Israelites'' and, of all things, the Kinks' ''Lola'' — in their trademark ska-pop style. While there's no danger of anyone going stark raving bonkers over it, The Dangermen Sessions, Volume One is a dandy little party record for your next Saturday-night soiree.
