Listening to "HA!(3x)"was at this time a strange experience: hearing a distorted violin,screaaaming guitars from hell,strange keyboard noises all this on punky rythmns.Jumping from hypnotic "we are the robots" beats, to atmospheric peaceful waves, immediately after perverted by the stongest guitaristic distortion ever heard then ,untill the top of the album the orgasmic "Hiroshima Mon amour",all that was a thrilling experience.This CD is a not only one of the foundation stones of the new wave, but of the whole alternative music since 30 years. If you want originality, there you have to go...and above this Island managed to include some undiscovered jewels like young savage studio and live, quirks,another version of Hiroshima Mon Amour,everything with a remastered crystal sound ...a mesmerizing experience. What do you wait for: BUY!!!!!!
Back in 2006 I reviewed the remastered jewel case version of this LP released by Island/Universal. Gushing like a girl.
So when I noticed this version and to paraphrase Bart Simpson, "You cant have gaps in your collection". I purchased the vinyl replica pressing. I've played it on my Panasonic Home Cinema system for full neighbour melting effect, and it sounds,even with adjustments, distorted, especially on Hiroshima Mon Amour and the piano intro to Distant Smile.
I have played many remastered CDs on this system and some that are "brickwalled" to coin a phrase, do sound distorted. Strangely the original 2006 aforementioned UK jewel case version does not.....
This second album by Ultravox was released barely six months after their first. Produced again by a young but rapidly-becoming-experienced Steve Lillywhite, there is no let up in the aggression of the group's sound over the first four tracks. Then follows `The Man Who Dies Every Day' and the first major appearance of time Billy Currie's contorted string sound, a feature that would pay ample dividends in the early 80s. The slightly more electronic bias from their debut album is also apparent in such features as the drum machine present in `Hiroshima Mon Amour'.
The group's sound was always interesting and innovative, making them stand out from their pre-pink, punk, and post-punk contemporaries, a cross between the Clash and Roxy Music. What other group of the time could come up with the opening soundworld of `Distant Smile'?
Foxx's part-provocative, part-mocking, and part-tongue-in-cheek lyrics are a fascinating and lacerating litany, continuing to take no prisoners. `The Man Who Dies Every Day' relates how "Someone stood beside me for a moment in the rain / A silhouette, a cigarette, and a gesture of disdain." Whilst in `Hiroshima Mon Amour', we "Walk through Polaroids of the past / Features fused like shattered glass / The sun's so low / Turns our silhouettes to gold."
This remastered edition ups the playtime from the thirty-six minutes of the original to almost an hour. The six bonus tracks include the studio and a live version of `Young Savage' as well as some interesting and quite radical remixes. With copious sleevenotes to boot, this is an impressive package with outstanding sound quality.

This album is great. Contains the absolute best of Ultravox at their synth-punk prime. Not a Midge Ure in sight!Published on 1 Oct. 2010 by Howchum
