  1. Madness

    The Madness is a self-titled album by the British band The Madness. In 1988, after the breakup of the original Madness, four of the original members recreated the band, adding "The" to its name. Since the new band did not include a bassist or drummer, guest musicians played bass, while a drum machine was used in place of a live drummer on most tracks. Also unlike previous Madness albums, the lead vocals were almost evenly shared between Suggs and Chas Smash. They released only this one album and two singles, which were less successful than the original band releases, and The Madness disbanded by the end of the year. Madness reformed with its original members for a reunion tour in 1992 and they have remained together since. "The Madness" reached # 66 in the UK, while the singles "I Pronounce You" reached # 44 and "What's That" # 92. The album was recorded at Liquidator Studios, and mixed at The Townhouse studio in London.
