The latest Madness album finds them in nostalgic mood, both lyrically and sonically.

Suggs dwells on girls that got away and childhood memories and bus rides through old stomping grounds, while "Never Knew Your Name" reuses the chord structure from "Embarrassment". In case you miss the point, the opening track is called "My Girl 2". Should you be struck by a nostalgic mood yourself, Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da is a Madness album like they used to make 'em.
