 Excellent introduction to Ultravox

| | See all perseust's reviews (5)

For all those who want to get acquainted with Ultravox, this is an excellent beginning. It is full of the hits that made them famous in the early 80's, and they fully deserved it. Their concept of playing music that people should hear took some time to be appreciated, but once it did they released one hit after another - until they took a break and never recovered. Meanwhile they left these classics, whether top 3 hits like Vienna and Dancing With Tears In My Eyes, tracks that incredibly failed to reach the top 10 such as Hymn, Reap The Wild Wind and The Voice, and other material that struggled to reach the top 20 (e.g. Passing Strangers, Lament).

This album also includes the single only track Love's Great Adventure which is among their best. Overall it's a great way to discover atmospheric New Romantic music at its best. And once you've enjoyed it, think about getting the individual albums.

Another well-chosen selection of some of ULTRAVOX's best songs. 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.

It's not just Ure that should be praised either, 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. Don't get me wrong, 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.

A seductive combination of the subtle and intense (VIENNA, DANCING WITH TEARS IN MY EYES) and the lofty and bombastic (REAP THE WILD WIND, LOVE'S GREAT ADVENTURE)...yet the result is never less than engaging. This collection may not be quite up there with THE BEST OF ULTRAVOX, but it's not far off and, as such, remains a solid buy.
