This album is overall a very worthy sounding piece of neo-classical synth. However it is missing something somewhere between track 9 (an original from 1982) and track 13 (an extra track). Dont perceive me wrongly, as those extra tracks are extremely macabre and mannequin like, which is why I like Ultravox. Especially 'Break your back', a beat-box ballad reminding me of 'Hiroshima mon amour'. 'Serenade' is a wonderful sounding song, which really made me think of classical music in its use of ostinati and moving, progressive bass line etc. This album is a very artistic 'art-house' offering, not as atmospheric as the monumentally dark 'Rage in Eden', but it sounds more accessible than Lament and especially 'The Island Years'. I couldnt give it 5 stars because it doesnt grip me enough to listen to it all the way through and not having to look at the seconds left of the a song! 'Rage In Eden' on the other hand just takes me along in the journey, with some tracks sounding as if they've come from 'The Shining' or 'The Hunger'.
