Madness - 'How Can I Tell You'

No sax please. It's not 1981.

Madness - 'How Can I Tell You'

Album Info

  • Release Date: April 8, 2013
  • Label: Cooking Vinyl
Suggs forgot it isn’t the early 1980s any more, and that only saxophones used by hipsters are cool. Ooooops. He seems like he’d be a nice dad – offering wisdom like “Forgive yourself and you’ll be free” and “You’re gonna get hurt by the one you love most” – but his past-its-best ska sounds cheesy, like the theme to a rubbish family sitcom.
