5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 11 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on cassette in 1988 when it first appeared and fell in love with it. I played it continuously. Realising that I could buy it on CD for such a cheap price was amazing. Obviously inspired by Midge Ure's involvement with Live Aid, it is a highly idealistic album. But there is nothing wrong with a touch of idealism. From the plaintive Dear God to the more up beat Sister and Brother via Hell to Heaven (Who designed this world we live in?) It is an album which demands close attention to the lyrics. I am playing it again continuously, having remembered how wonderful an album it is. It would be interesting to know what Midge Ure thinks of this album now but if you like Ultravox or occasionally like your songs to have some sort of social question, then I recommend this album to you. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Answers (to nothing): Sheer brilliance! 19 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is an album where for some part, the music or melodies fade in significance to the sheer brilliance of the lyrics. Throughout the whole album, you are left to consider the way in which we live. "Hell to Heaven" leaves you with the hairs standing on the back of your neck! Kate Bush guests on the chaotic "Sister/ Brother" but you get a real feel for the power of her voice. The chorus from 'Dear God': "Give me hope for the children, give me a worldwide religion, give me PEACE IN A RESTLESS WORLD" very simple but very effective. This album is relevant and poignant in today's troubled times!

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs that make you think! 13 Jan 2009
By Enigma
Format:Audio CD
Some excellent songs on this album, songs that make you think.....my kind of songs.....listen to the words of 'Hell to Heaven'! Other favourite tracks include 'Just for you', 'Lied' and 'Honorare'. And there is the very poignant 'Homeland' written following the tragic death of Phil Lynott. 'Sister and Brother' great collaboration with Kate Bush. 'Dear God'....listen to the lyrics.....you don't have to believe in a God to relate to this!
Midge is a brilliant singer/songwriter/musician and this album reflects that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Maturing Midge Ure 16 Jun 2000
By Jimmy Rico - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Answers to Nothing seemed to mark Midge Ure's desire to step out of his Ultravox shoes. Instruments besides the synthesizer are prominent on this CD such as his guitar, which screams without rage on songs "Dear God" and "Just For You" . The songs "Take Me Home", "The Leaving (So Long)" and the tearjerker "Homeland" wonderfully express Midge's love for his family.
The only low point is when Midge whines on "Hell To Heaven" but he then makes up for it with another whiny song "Lied" which works beautifully. For the Ultravox fan who would buy this album, "Sister and Brother", the duet w/Kate Bush is as close to the Ultravox sound as Midge gets here...and thats pushing it.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this CD and have spent many hours listening to it. Great musical effort!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a flawless Masterpiece. One of the best albums ever made. 10 Jan 2012
By J. Bynum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Midge Ure / Answers To Nothing: Without tricks or pyrotechnics, Midge Ure has created a flawless masterpiece. This has some of the most touching and straightforward lyrics ever written, performed with simple elegance. This is both personal and epic, individual and universal. Albums rarely get any better than this. If you don't have this album, you need to get it. This album deserves a Sixth Star.
