Biography

Ultravox is a British New Wave rock band. They were one of the primary exponents of the British electronic pop music movement of the late 1970s/early 1980s. The band was particularly associated with the New Romantic and New Wave movements.

This band was effectively led by two different individuals in its career, two frontmen who, curiously, never played together in the band at the same ... Read more in Amazon's Ultravox Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Trove 18 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
Last summer I saw Ultravox on a festival over here. I didn't think Midge Ure was in particularly great vocal shape then, but the electronic landscapes he and his bandmates created, transported me back to the early 80's, when I was really young and smitten by that arty esoteric sound.
Concertopener Astradyne set the atmosphere of the show and Ultravox's greatest hits set (with the occasional albumtrack) confirmed that they really have an impressive body of work, despite some critics comments that the music hasn't stood the test of time.
From Lament, the setlist contained One Small Day and of course Dancing With Tears In My Eyes.I'd loved to hear some more tracks of this album, which I consider as their strongest next to Vienna.
This more than welcome re-issue is well worth the wait. The album itself can be heard in pristine sound quality on disc 1. Ultravox had reached its highest peak here in sheer versatility and songcraft. I really don't think there is a weak track in this collection of songs. You will hear full bodied rock but also folk- and world-influenced songs.
Disc 2 is a treasure trove of 12 inch mixes, work-in-progress-mixes and (instrumental) B-sides. You can indulge in and choose between 3 different epic versions of One Small Day. On the contrary, the 10 minutes plus version of Dancing doesn't really work and never climaxes.
The real gem however is the extended, solemn, elegiac version of the title track Lament. I heard it for the first time more than 20 years ago and it still moves me.
Lament isn't a classic album like Vienna, but one that certainly merits to be rediscovered.

5.0 out of 5 stars A last hurrah 16 Feb 2005
By sonik57
Format:Audio CD
A stonking album and the last decent one that Ultravox mk 3 produced. 1984 saw a lot of changes in British music: the synth revolution had started to wane, provoking a backlash of (usually American) guitar bands. It was also the year Ultravox reached their creative and commercial pinnicle.
Lament spawned no less than four singles, the lead one being One Small Day, an all-out rock song with severe guitar from Ure and Cann's towering drums well to the fore. The video was shot on by the remote Callanish standing stones in the Hebrides (that's them in the cover pic) and boy was it a cold day! Currie plays with no gloves on and looks frozen stiff!
The whole album is very tight and well produced with tracks like Man Of Two Worlds and A Friend I Call Desire outstanding. Unfortunately, tensions within the band - typified by Currie and Cann not being invited to the Band Aid session - began to surface. Ure took time out in 1985 to record and release his debut solo album, The Gift, Cann was shown the door after over ten years in the band and they went on as an ill-advised trio, recording the awful U-Vox album in 86.
Lament represents the end of an era. Currie reformed Ultravox with others later, Ure having quit in 87 and bassist Chris Cross retired to return his former vocation of psychotherapy.
This is a band at the height of their powers. They were stunning and I loved them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Album, 2 things missed out though! 28 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
I cant fault this album in any shape or form, I have always loved every track AND even the artwork!
The album itself contained 8 classic tracks, not one filler or "naff" track was on Lament.
With regards to this package the only slight disappointments for me are that the "rare as rocking horse poo" Heart of the Country 12" isn't included which is a shame as I cant find it anywhere (yes I have a download of it but not a CD of it) and even worse where's Love's Great Adventure 7" and 12"?? Yes, I know they weren't on the original but why are they being left off the remasters? My fave Ultravox track ever and it wasn't played on the tour and now ain't on here which is a pain.
So, 2 missed opportunities in my opinion but as I say, I cant fault this album at all.
A cracking album, cant wait for the next tour which will hopefully include LGA and Man of 2 Worlds (this albums best track in my opinion!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The epitome of neo-romance 29 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
The early 80s synth genre was dominated by a movement called the 'Neo-Romantic'. Bands like 'Visage' manifested the romance and the 'Human League' offered the universal dance sound. Ultravox combined both, which this is very evident in 'Lament'. Any purchaser will be in synth heaven with this album, and with meaningful coherent lyrics one can become absorbed in those 'syncopated rhythms'. 'White China', 'One Small Day', 'Dancing With Tears In My Eyes' and the remixes of 'White China' and 'One Small Day' are upbeat and full of vigour, flavour, emotion and romance. The title track 'Lament' offers a truly wonderfully melancholic vibe which gives the album an altogether more reflective and mature sound. This is NOT synth-'POP', it may have been conceived to be POPular in the early 80s but after 19 years it has aged oh so gracefully and sends shivers down my spine. Especially the blazing instrumental section of 'One Small Day' with the soaring guitar displays. 'A Friend I call desire' is a moodier sounding track reminiscent of 'One Small Day' and Visage's 'Fade To Grey'. If you liked Ultravox's 'The Collection Album' buy this without hesitation right away. This album offers a more maturer reflective sound over the almighty 'Human League', a band I greatly admire.

5.0 out of 5 stars blast from the past
A group I enjoyed listening to in the '80s and still enjoy their music now. This is an album I use to have on cassette, so I decided to buy it on cd.

With the album's name a hostage to fortune, `Lament' was issued in 1984. I was nineteen at the time, and loved most of this album to death, playing it loud and consistently. Read more
