Product Description

Midge Ure, the multi-talented fellow best-known (despite successes with Slik, the Rich Kids and Ultravox) as Bob Geldof's Band Aid buddy, crafted Move Me in 2000. For the most part, he goes it alone: writing the songs, producing the tracks and playing virtually every instrument himself, with only the rhythm section of bassist Dave Williamson and percussion maestro Russell Field contributing much else. To judge by his lyrics, Midge is a man close to his spiritual nadir, fretting about the cynical war-mongering world he's forced to live in, bewailing his own shortcomings and desperately seeking some kind of spiritual salvation. Fortunately the music is rather more uplifting, with some tracks bordering on rootsy rock and others reminiscent of the late-period Ultravox, as they might have been had they the benefits of sampling and computer technology.

Having been fortunate enough to see Midge live in an acoustic session in Milton Keynes, it is refreshing to see that the music looses none of Midge's musical passion which is felt throughout the whole of this superb 2 CD album.

One thing that always remains constant throughout his career is his AMAZING voice - yes, he really can sing those high notes LIVE - and this is reflected throughout the album's live recordings (CD 2).

Midge has always been a fantastic performer and a leader in song writing. MOVE ME:PLUS shows his ability for true passion in song writing and performance, leaving the listener with a lust for more of Midge's creations.

This album is a true progression to greater musical heights and goes to prove that there is a lot more life left in this musical genius.

PASSION, SATISFACTION and GENIUS all rolled in to one neatly packaged album.

I came to see friends last week and while we were having dinner, they played Move Me. At first, I did not know who that was although the voice sounded somehow familiar and then came Monster, an outstanding mix between electronica and heavy metal. Well I didn't finish my meal and asked for a repeat of the album. To my surprise, this came from Midge Ure, a 40+ year old rock legend. I thought it must come from a new young-thinking modern rock band who was trying to cut through the stuff we hear all the time on the radio. The album sounds very different, absolutely cutting-edge and many tracks are worth a play or two on national radio stations. Melodies, powerful and emotional singing, chords, arrangements and lyrics are all of outstanding level. Why don't we hear more of Ure when such album is available somewhere on earth. I was not a fan of Midge Ure or Ultravox but I can tell you that the mAster Ure is back to teach a few how to make an astonishing piece of contemporary art. It's all about music, noise, emotions and is previously unheard - which is unfortunate. Go ahead and buy it now - it may need a few listens but it's a grower. I wish I could put a 6th star.

So many people have to rely on covering songs today. What comes as a great suprise is the fact that every track on this album is original. A popular music magazine slated this album, stating more or less that Midge was an 80's has been. He couldn't be farther from the truth. Every song could be a hit, with his recent single "Beneath a Spielberg Sky", being one of the best singles I have heard this year. If Midge can continue to produce music of this caliber, I will die a happy man! Buy It and enjoy.

Move me sits in slot No 5 in my car and now holds what seems a permanent place next to Travis - The Man Who (No 6). No other CD is so permanent, so I've (only) got 4 slots left. If Midge Ure produces any more CD's like this (unlike the poor Travis follow up to TMW) then I'll have to get a bigger stack in the car boot!
I bought this with trepidation having been a 30something Ultravox and Midge fan of years ago, and couldn't believe how good it is.
What we want next is these songs on 'Midge Ure - Unplugged!' Any tickets anyone??

this album is probably the best midge ure release to date, midge ure seems to depart from his recent style and revisits the rock ultravox style whilst retaining the qualities that define his type of music. particular tracks which stand out are 'strong' and 'let me go', the latter whose lyrics are just amazing.
the release highlights his web site [...] which has some quality recent releases not available elsewhere.

This long awaited album is fantastic. Each track has meaning and sums up what a lot of us 30somethings feel !! I particularly liked 'somebody' it had very special meaning for me. It is true every Midge/Uvox song has a meaning for one person or another and has played an important role in one's life . As has "move me" for me and probably many others. This album deserves recognition and i hope it gets it . Midge is a very talented individual and I would like to personally congratulate him on 25 or so years in the business.

It is good to see Midge Ure finally gaining some critical recognition for his recent album, Fragile. Hopefully, as a result of this more people will sit up and take notice of Move Me, his previous collection of original material. My opinion of it is demonstrated by the fact that I have now bought it three times, initially on import in 2000 when there was no sign of a UK release date; again in 2001 when it finally emerged here with a number of extra tracks; and finally, in this Move Me + version, with further live and two previously unheard instrumentals. It has been, without doubt, my favourite album since its original release, combining all the elements of memorable and moving tunes, excellent singing and thought-provoking lyrics that those of us in the know have come to expect from Midge Ure.

It is also a very varied album, and for this reason it scores higher for me than Fragile which is predominantly slow and mellow (with the exception of `Become'). There are still very successful contemplative moments on Move Me, for example the wonderful `Let Me Go', `Strong', `Refugee Song' and `Somebody'. However, there are also more raucous interludes (the near-metal instrumental `Monster' and the equally guitar-heavy `Absolution Sometime'). Ure's recurrent themes of personal redemption and fulfilment are well to the fore on several tracks, not least on the very personal sounding `Alone'. If there were any justice at all, then `You Move Me' and `Beneath a Spielberg Sky' would have been massive hits. Unfortunately, at the time, people weren't really listening.

I have long felt that if Move Me had been the follow-up to the enormously successful but much-inferior The Gift, then Ure would have had a considerable success on his hands; unfortunately, it didn't happen.
