iTunes Review

If the languid “I Want to Be a Machine” and the androgynously confused “My Sex” didn’t foreshadow early-’80s electronic music and the techno that would later motor out of Detroit, then the world is flat. In fact, this 1977 debut takes us on an early pop-art cross-cultural drive worthy of David Bowie, from the low roads of William Burroughs and The New York Dolls (“Wide Boys”) to rocksteady ganja by way of Carson McCullers (“The Lonely Hunter”) to the high road of Metropolis (“Saturday Night in the City of the Dead”) and F. Scott Fitzgerald (“The Wild, the Beautiful & the Damned”). And it’s fitting that Brian Eno produced this, because Ultravox was all about the low-life/high-art glam and Roxy Music. Singer/lyricist John Foxx fronted Ultravox with his pleasing and tempered croon (with some Bryan Ferry–style diction) until 1980, when Midge Ure came aboard and the band went headlong into Europlatinum status. Many prefer the Foxx-era Ultravox, with its youthful art-school sneers and raw synths and big punk guitars and punk-hated violin.

I finally found it !!!

I wore this out when it came out in Seventy something !! Such a cool band before all that techno crap in the later version of these guys. The Wild, The Beautiful, and The Damed kicks a*s !!! I suggest this for every music listener. GREAT STUFF !

Listened to this album constantly in 1979...

The very first Ultravox! album, with guitars and violins and John Foxx, and without sequencers or Midge Ure.

Punk roots and the romanticism that later became Blitz, it's arguably a seminal album... Good instrumentation and writing, Brian Eno & Steve Lillywhite co-produced in 1977, so that in itself makes it interesting.

Nice to hear it again!

Rejecting the abrasive guitars of their punk-era contemporaries in favor of lushly romantic synthesizers, Ultravox emerged as one of the primary influences on the British electro-pop movement of the early '80s. Formed in London in 1974, the group -- originally dubbed Ultravox! -- was led by vocalist and keyboardist John Foxx (born Dennis Leigh), whose interest in synths and cutting-edge technology began during his school years. With an initial lineup consisting of bassist Chris Cross, keyboardist/violinist...
