Format:Audio CD
Combining members of Ultravox (Midge Ure, Billy Currie,Dave Formula)and other musicians as well as fashion model Steve Strange, Visage's debut release was one of the New Romantic Era's best albums. The electronic song "Fade To Grey" was an instant hit as was it's follow up "Mind Of A Toy". But this album had many other great songs such as "Malpaso Man","Moon Over Moscow" and "Tar". Visage along with other New Romantic groups such as Duran Duran, Classic Nouveau, Spandau Ballet, Heaven 17, The Human League, and Ultravox were part of the ever so popular New Wave movement that began in the late seventies and continued until the late 80's. If you enjoy listening to New Wave music then this album is a must in any collection. Highly Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent, but the pressing presented here is outdate Aug. 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Visage's self-titled album is a real masterpiece. Te instrumentation is great, Steve Strange's vocals is good, in short, this album is a perfect example of the New Romantic music of the 80's. However, this particular UK Polydor pressing is outdated since One Way Records rereleased the album in remastered form with the dance mix of "Fade to Grey" as bonus track. So, go to the previous page and select the "Visage + bonus tracks" title, it is also chaper than this one

5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly different March 17 2006
By Strange Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to this album many times and it always strikes me as being unique. Certainly it is very pretensious, but so was all of the posing and imagery of the time. The tracks are an eclectic mix of synth music with Strange's vocals over the top, and instrumentals such as "The Dancer" with a beat that could almost pass for some of the glam rock tunes of the decade before. It is not music you can dance to; but as I recall from visits to Strange's clubs of the time (Club Blitz, Club for Heroes etc) that wasn't the point. You listened and posed and checked-out everyone else. The album really evokes the era well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visage ~ Visage July 26 2005
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Visage is a one tremedous album from the mind of Steve Strange. This is without a doubt the best New Wave album of all time. Strange has some tremedous vocals and the lyrics are incredible. Tracks such as blocks on blocks, fade to grey, tar and mind of a toy set the bar high and the rest of the tracks are truly amazing in their own right. The cover art for this album is astounding and the dancing couple with the band in the background is one of my favorite covers of all time. This is an album not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic New Romantic Album May 9 2013
By Ireneusz J. Wojcik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A classic example of the beginning of the New Romantic period. I have this album made into one long MP3, and this is how I always listen to it. A fabulous ride, with "Fade To Grey" in the middle all the way to the end with the melancholy "The Steps." If you are looking for another example of the classic New Romantic period then get Ultravox - Vienna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I expected. June 22 2010
By J Vogel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Got this in a timely manner with a good price. It is exactly the quirky 80's standout that I remember. I personally find "mind of toy a bit annoying" but "fade to gray" and the rest of the album is pretty cool. It certainly helped to push musical boundaries a bit at the time of its release. I found this to be a very imaginative work. I have periodically looked for this album but it was not easy to find. It is hard for me to place this electronica into category, and I think that is what makes this a standout album for me.
