The best out of the lot

Without a doubt the best effort, the album is brilliant from start to finish, no skipping tracks here folks.
Reap the wild wind opens the album brilliantly, while The Song (we go) ends the album on a real high, very energetic track.
Highlights for me are Reap the wild wind, Mine for life, When the scream subsides and The song.
If there's one really good thing about Ultravox, it's the fact that the unreleased tracks are just as good as the singles they did release.

...this album had been produced by Conny Plank, producer of Ultravox's previous two works: Vienna and Rage In Eden. Put simply, this album is so poorly produced it beggars belief, especially as the man at the helm was none other than George Martin. The overall sound is tinny, weak and bland whereas Ultravox always needed their production to be bold, heavy and full of bass to fully compliment their sound. Also, Plank - a native German - seemed to bring a brooding, eastern bloc quality to the overall sound. In essence, a match made in heaven.
It's such a pity because the tunes are there, particularly Hymn, When The Scream Subsides and Mine For Life but the life is squeezed out of every single song reducing them to a thin, watery mess.
Better are the b-sides and outtakes. Some great live stuff from the 81and 82 tours, a nice couple of mixes, particularly Reap The Wild Wind and We Came To Dance. Perhaps most enjoyable of all is the experimental Break Your Back ,a tune full of delightful synth loops and snare triggers.
Whichever tunes they play from Quartet on their forthcoming tour, they will definitely sound more dynamic than the originals..
