Product Description

Product Description

2012 studio album from the reunited '80s quartet featuring the band's classic hit-making line-up: Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and Warren Cann. Recorded in Canada, Los Angeles and the UK, Brilliant sees Ultravox expanding their classic sonic template and reminding us of their strength as songwriters of the highest caliber. Dramatic, passionate and truly epic in scale and sound, Brilliant is not only a prescient reminder of how great this reborn band are, but an exciting and vital addition to an extraordinary catalog of music which today sounds more current and influential than ever. EMI.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad return Jan. 27 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We weren't expecting too much from the resurrected original lineup, but there are a few good songs here (Flow, Rise, some others) that makes this album worth a listen. Hints of the old Ultravox here and there in flourishes and textures, but overall rather different in tone -- less showy and dramatic, more down-to-earth, which may be something to be regretted for those who liked the evocative resonance of the old sound. Still, I listen to this quite a bit. Why such dull monochrome album art, though? Modesty is all very well, and I guess the drab album art undercuts the pretension of the title, but something a bit more imaginative would have helped. Great to see Midge and all back in the game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultravox - Brilliant CD. March 15 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was good to hear Midge Ure as the lead vocals on this album again. Midge was on a solo for a few years when he left Ultravox.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultravox Brilliant Dec 3 2012

I discovered this band many years ago, saw them in concert in Hamilton Ontario and Vancouever B.C. As always even 25 years later Ultravox is still great.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Learning To Live Again" Oct. 6 2012
By A Fan TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like the other reviewer on here I had high expectations for this CD but I also didn't expect much. It's difficult for any band to re-capture the "glory days" magic after they've been apart for any extended period of time. As excited as I've been about some of my favourite artists reuniting, not many have been able to deliver (at least in the studio). After being disappointed by KISS Psycho Circus, Duran Duran Astronaut and Queen The Cosmos Rocks (doesn't really count without Freddie Mercury) but having thoroughly enjoyed Bauhaus Go Away White, Spoons Static In Transmission and Revolting Cocks Cocked And Loaded (yes, I know, my music tastes are very diverse) I was on the fence as to whether or not I would enjoy this new Ultravox recording. This is the first new release in 25 years; 28 years with this lineup.

Ultravox are bar none my absolute favourite '80s artists. There are lots more that I love from that decade but Ultravox lived and died in the '80s so their catalogue exists only in that time frame. Needless to say I was quite stoked that they were back together. I even travelled to the UK in 2009 to finally see them live in concert. Soooo worth it! When news arrived of them recording Brilliant I was very excited, curious and a bit worried it wouldn't be very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars High expectations June 5 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to the first two cuts, my first impression was good. They reminded me of Vienna, although less complex. The rest of the tracks were a let-down. An extremely boring listen. Hopefully the songs will grow on me over time.
