Madness on Target For U.K. No. 1 With ‘Theatre of the Absurd’


Madness Unveils Their 13th Symphony: Theatre of the Absurd

In the ever-evolving tapestry of British ska and pop, Madness strides boldly into uncharted territories with their 13th studio masterpiece, “Theatre of the Absurd.” A sonic odyssey that beckons audiences to immerse themselves in the auditory kaleidoscope crafted by these maestros of melody. This auditory opus stands as a testament to their enduring creativity and aural innovation.

C’est La Vie: Madness’ Ascent to U.K. No. 1

As the sands of time continue their relentless march, Madness pins its hopes on the number 13, a symbol of luck and serendipity. The album’s lead single, “C’est La Vie,” an ethereal manifestation of the band’s musical prowess, has gracefully pirouetted into the limelight via BMG. If the cosmic ballet aligns, “Theatre of the Absurd” could etch its name in history as Madness’ first-ever U.K. No. 1 studio album, eclipsing their prior chart-toppers, “Complete Madness” (1982) and “Divine Madness” (1992).

A Journey Through Madness’ Charted Landscape

Guided by the enigmatic Graham “Suggs” McPherson, the north London band has danced tantalizingly close to the U.K. chart’s elusive summit on multiple occasions. The echoes of their 1979 debut, “One Step Beyond,” and the sophomore sensation “Absolutely” (1980), both peaking at No. 2 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart, reverberate through the annals of musical history. Now, with “Theatre of the Absurd,” Madness seeks not only to tread but to conquer the sacred ground of the U.K. chart hierarchy.

Chart Chronicles: A Duel With Titans

In the arena of musical prowess, Madness faces formidable opponents. Taylor Swift’s reign with “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” (via EMI) looms large at No. 2, a testament to her enduring sway over the charts. Dolly Parton, the venerable country legend, aims to etch her name once more in the annals of U.K. chart history, with “Rockstar” (Big Machine) poised at No. 3 on the Official Chart Update. A symphony of musical legends converges, each vying for their moment in the spotlight.

Across the Atlantic, U.S. alternative rock favorites, the National, set the stage for their second top 5 album of 2023 with “Laugh Track” (4AD). A musical journey that follows the footsteps of their May release, “First Two Pages of Frankenstein,” which debuted at a formidable No. 4.

The Grand Finale: André Rieu’s Jewels of Romance

In this orchestral spectacle, Dutch violinist and conductor André Rieu, adorned with the Johann Strauss Orchestra, unveils “Jewels of Romance” (Decca). This auditory gem, new at No. 8 on the Official Chart Update, whispers promises of Rieu’s 14th top U.K. 10 LP, adding yet another illustrious chapter to his musical legacy.

The Curtain Rises: Nov. 24, the Revelations Await
