Editorial Reviews

Containing arguably their best work of the '80s, Lament showcases a band with confidence to match their commercial status (it was the first of their albums to be self-produced). The electro-synth workout "Dancing With Tears in My Eyes" actually works quite well, and is their best single since the epochal (for good and bad reasons) "Vienna." "White China," too, is impressive. EMI Gold. 2004.

I bought this album on vinyl in 1985. The album is a work of pure art. Mid-eighties guitar-based electronic with complex weaved sub-melodies worked into the main themes of each song. I strongly recommend listening through headphones to truly capture the left and right channel isolation within each song. As with all Ultravox offerings, they were on the cutting edge of their time. The listening experience reflects a treat for the listener that I am sorry to say reflects a listener-based attention that has not been approached since the time period in which this album was released. Everything from the chord progression to the left/right diametrics lead to a fully satisfying listening experience. I can count on one hand the number of albums (or bands) that pay this much attention to their work. I liked this album when i bought it. After 4 or 5 listens I grew to love it. After 2 years of owning and listening to it, I grew to worship it. To this day, I find new stuff hidden that I never heard before.

THE Ultravox's album to have if you can only chose one . One of the best new wave records from the 80's . Dancing With Tears In My Eyes , White China , When The Time Comes are absolutely brilliant examples of what electronics can do combined with unique vocals by Midge Ure . The title track - Lament , which is my personal all time favorite will make you want to listen to it again and again and again . Man Of Two Worlds and The Heart Of The Country will show you that not all electropop is impersonal and cold . To make a long story short : don't miss out , get the album and enjoy this pearl from U-Vox !!!

This being the fourth from the amazing new wave band Ultravox is a great new wave/synth pop/pop album. They scored three hits with the tracks 'Lament', 'One Small Day' & 'Dancing With Tears In My Eyes'. I love the sounds selected on this album and this is quite important for electronic music as picking the wrong sound can ruin an otherwise excellent song. This is an album not to be missed. I highly recommend it and easily give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Ultravox expand on their trademark distant European synthesizer song by absorbing elements of World and Celtic mythology. Frontman "Midge" Ure makes reference to the spirits and stone monuments of his Scottish heritage in "Man of Two Worlds", and bares a lovelorn soul in "A Friend I Call Desire" and "When the Time Comes". This release also features one of Ultravox's final hits, the apocalypse-themed "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes". You'll find a more personal, more human Ultravox here...a thoroughly enjoyable set for the U-Vox fan.

The only thing that prevents me from giving this one 5 stars is that the other 3 great Ultravox records prior to this deserve 5 stars due to their consistency and creativity. Other than that, I find this one nicely listenable and danceable. I really like "White China" and "Desire". The bonus tracks on the EMI Gold edition of "White China", "One Day" and "Lament" are perfect. With this clean & crisp Ultravox disk, the New Romantic era of pop music had offered its last tasty meal. As a matter of fact, this might have been that last great 80's record. I can count the number of decent 80's records after 1984 on my fingers. Overall, if you like danceable European travel music, you will enjoy this record.

Quite like this--back in the '80s, I had several Ultravox albums and 12" singles (remember those?) but not this one for some odd reason. When the remastered editions of their back catalog came out, I purchased "Lament" along with some albums I'd owned on vinyl or cassette and this one actually ended up being my favorite. Good songs, excellent use of synths and traditional instruments, plus some bonus tracks (the 2 instrumental versions aren't super necessary, but the extended mixes remind me of dance floors in my distant past, in a good way) "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" indeed!

I am a huge Ultravox fan. I liked this album, don't get me wrong. However, a few tracks were weak. I detested Dancing with Tears In My Eyes, perhaps because it was such a "commercial" success. I did not like a Friend I Call Desire - perhaps because of the women's voices - a flourish to their music which didn't "fit" to my ears. When the Time Comes - a bit better than Friend I Call Desire, but truly a weak second side.

Now. The other songs on this album - classics. They mean more to me now that my own years are getting on. One Small Day got me through some bad times - "Oh my sentimental friend, your time will come again/One day where I didn't die 1,000 times...where every hour could be a joy to me/And live a life the way it's meant to be/One small day". One of my songs of hope.

Lament too - "Just as my eyes start seeing/After all the pain/The twist in my life starts healing/Just to twist again/In stillness and sorrow/Returns that softly sighing lament". Loved the ending of this song - reminded me somewhat of DePeche Mode's "Pipeline", but Lament out did that one! The music is sad and poignant - that's what stayed with me the most.

The one song which, again, hit me hard after years and a bad time, was Man of Two Worlds (okay, the ladies' voices are okay and I understand why they are there, to give it that Celtic Druid feel singing in - Gaelic?). I was at a bad place in my life and had to make decisions about which way to go. The verse, "Feel a presence moving into me/Painting pictures with fast words/Seeing places that I've never seen/Like a door thrown open on a life I've lived before". That line "Like a door thrown open on a life I've lived before" echoed for a long time.

Not the best Ultravox album, hence my three star rating, but since I'm an Ultravox fangirl, it still reigns up there. Just not as high as Vienna or Rage in Eden.
