song by song review,
This review is from: Closer (Audio CD)
im editing this after listening to it about 10 times now.
Atrocity Exhiition - like it. curtis sounds like he's in the room with you
Isolation - one of JD's best songs and perhaps best use of a synthesiser ever?
Passover - good
Colony - brilliant.
Means - fantastic. great bass. you could dance to this and no doubt curtis did.
heart & soul - lot of echo on ian's voice. great drumming. a very good track.
24 hrs - takes a while to get into but a good track.
eternal - deep song.
decades - the best song on the album and one of the great musical achievements of the last or indeed this century. in a word - masterpiece. the whole band at their best. ian looking at the nature of existence itself. you will question life itself after listening to this.
definately top 10 album. unfortunately cant change it to a five star.

Easy to forget how influential this music was. Isolation pretty much set off 1980s synth pop, while Means to an End mixed punk and power pop. Decades was pretty much covered as Vienna the following year. Not just Ultravox, but Depeche Mode, OMD and maybe Duran Duran all start here.
