7. Burning The Boats.

Mad Not Mad is the sixth album by the British ska band Madness, released in 1985. It was their only album not to feature founder member Mike Barson, who had left the group the year before. Only a few weeks after its release, the writers of NME included this LP on their list of the 100 best albums of all time. The band themselves have been less satisfied with the album. In a BBC Radio 1 interview in 1993 Suggs described Mad Not Mad as "a polished turd" (referring to its glossy 1980s over-production).
