    Who else but Madness could pull off covers of the Supremes and the Kinks on the same record? [#17, p.94]
  2. Sessions is loose and fun and, while not blazing any trails, it doesn't sound like a bad karaoke night either.
  3. A dandy little party record. [19 Aug 2005, p.143]
  4. Whilst back then they bounced along with cheekiness and zeal, now they seem to be trying to continue the reggae-meets-Brit-suburbia Nutty blueprint but end up falling flat in too many places.
  5. All done in their trademark chirpy Camden ska way. [30 Jul 2005, p.49]
  6. If you dance easily at weddings then this album is very good news. [Aug 2005, p.129]
  7. 40
    If you didn't know what the band have been capable of, this would be good enough. [Aug 2005, p.94]
