 ULTRAEXCELLENT

| | See all kelvinjd's reviews (10)

A superb selection of many of ultravox's best songs, the ones that represented their breakthough into mainstream acceptance and subsequent commercial success. Vienna remains the benchmark album and saw the arrival of midge ure (so if you only own one complete ultravox recording, make it that one). There's no doubt that his keen pop sensibility and impressive vocal range steered the band away from their previous kraftwerkian experimentalism, infusing it instead with a warmth and depth that lasted for several more years.

Passing strangers
Vienna
The voice
Dancing with tears in my eyes

All classic songs, and especially so if you were there at the time of their release. It's not just ure that should be praised of course, original members billy currie, warren cann and criss cross were just as instrumental in creating that unique (and much-imitated) sound. A sound that, at the time, was a revelation. Given the more avant-garde nature of the band up to that point, who could seriously have predicted or imagined something as beautiful and evocative as a violin solo providing the beating heart within their best-selling single 'vienna'? Not me.

I'm not belittling the john foxx era, but the point at which the music started touching people's emotions began, ironically, with a lyric that included the line "this means nothing to me". Far from it.

Buy this first, then head off in the direction of austria and see where that leads.

Very highly recommended
