We gave it a B

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.
