Ultravox rose up out of Britain's late-'70s punk movement, adding a dark, moody touch to the sonic din.
In both their initial incarnation with singer John Foxx (who went on to a highly influential solo career) and their later phase with Midge Ure, they were enormously influential to the burgeoning new romantic and synth-pop scenes.
In the 21st century, their synth-based, distinctly European sound would inspire a whole new generation of bands who took their cue from '80s electro-pop and were eventually gathered under the umbrella term "Electroclash".

 Amazon.com: Vienna: Music: Ultravox   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
Ultravox effectively staked a place as a rock band that utilised electronic elements and not the other way around and as a result, had a much grander and heavier sound than their feeble Casio derived rivals.
Ultravox first album with Midge Ure is amazing and his vocal skills and ability to write pertinent lyrics is truly astounding.
I like Ultravox in spite of what some fans appreciate Ethat syrupy, over-dramatic quality, and what I think prevented them from becoming bigger than they were, which was a shame because I felt they were underrated and under-played on the radio.

 Ultravox: album reviews and ratings
The sound is more ambitious than Vienna, the lyrics and arrangements have the grandiose New Romantic flair (or, to look at it negatively, some of the lyrics verge on highly pretentious, and some of the instrumental excesses have a 70s prog rock feel to them), and it's a very solid album overall.
Quartet should be the record to catapult Ultravox from its synthesizer-dance band cult status to large scale notoriety.
"This album, the final Ultravox release to feature singer/guitarist Midge Ure, is widely seen as a letdown to most of their fans and even the band themselves.

 TrouserPress.com :: Ultravox
Originally lost in the gap between glam-rock and punk, Ultravox (initially operating, from 1974 to '76, as Tiger Lily) became prime movers of the electro-pop and new romantic movements when they combined synthesizer with the direct and danceable pop music of the new wave.
Ultravox's recast sound included a more symphonic use of synthesizer, layered in deep swells for new heights of sonic density.
Except for a slightly increased guitar focus and the large proportion of instrumentals, Ure's one-man solo album (with a little assistance, mostly on bass and vocals) sounds enough like Ultravox in spots to unsettle his bandmates — it could easily be mistaken for a group effort.

 Ultravox : The Collection - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
While Ultravox's commercial success was virtually nonexistent in the U.S., their singles were strewn across the British charts throughout the early half of the '80s.
Led by Midge Ure's haunting but forceful vocal presence, sometimes reminiscent of U2's Bono, Ultravox used the keyboards to guide their sophisticated and intelligent pop style, resulting in some extremely intricate and provocative material.
The Collection gathers the heartiest of Ultravox's repertoire, wisely ignoring any of their late-'70s albums in which John Foxx, the group's founder, inundated his darkened keyboard approach.

 Ozon.ru - "Ultravox"
В отличие от своих более удачливых собратьев по новой волне, таких как "Duran Duran" или "Depeche Mode", "Ultravox" не смогли добиться крупного международного успеха, однако они были пионерами синти-попа, много сделавшими для становления этого стиля и существенно повлиявшими на многих исполнителей.
Поэтому неудивительно, что дебютный альбом "Ultravox!" (1977) во многом напоминал их любимых исполнителей, с той разницей, что подача материала у молодых музыкантов была куда более мрачной.
Ободренные успехом, на следующий год "Ultravox" выпустили свою, вероятно самую амбициозную работу "Rage In Eden", пропитанную духом неоклассицизма.

 Ultravox   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
In its early, electro-rock days, Ultravox (latin for 'many voices') was made up of singer John Foxx, drummer Warren Cann, guitarist Steve Shears, synth player Billy Currie, and bass player Chris Cross.
Like contemporaries Kraftwerk, Ultravox had a hard time gathering a sizable audience, and after four years together the band members, unhappy with the band's progress, began looking for projects beyond Ultravox.
Vienna, the band's first album with Ure, truly raised the bar for the synth acts that were to come, and Ultravox helped create the look and attitude of the new romantics that would follow their lead.

Ultravox mk1 were very much 'arty' and experimental, leaning more to bands like early Roxy Music, David Bowie and to a lesser extent The Velvet Underground.
That Ultravox can move so easily between different musical styles and instruments yet still retain their signature sound proves what a unique band they were.
Comparisons with Midge Ure era Ultravox are unfair, though in all respects Systems of Romance set the blueprint that Ultravox mk2 would use to have greater success.

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.
A third LP, 1978's Systems of Romance, was recorded in Germany with renowned producer Conrad Plank, but it too failed commercially; Island soon dropped the band, at which time both Foxx and Simon quit, the former mounting a solo career and the latter joining Magazine.

....for Ultravox to recapture the mood of their first two Ure-led albums, providing three chart singles, and an US fanbase with the Reap the Wild Wind track.
The vienna-esque structure of the albums best moment, Visions in Blue, is the last real gasp of Ultravox being imaginative and visionary before relaxing on their laurels, and consigning themselves to bland releases happily ever-after.

When James "Midge" Ure replaced Dennis "John Foxx" Leigh as singer for Ultravox in 1979, the group had recently been dropped from Island Records after three unsuccessful albums.
Ure's CV - listing a Number One hit with Slik in 1977 and a tour with Thin Lizzy as a stand-in guitarist - demonstrated the kind of professional nous that might resurrect Ultravox's career.
The hits kept coming both for Ultravox (notably the electro-pop melodrama Dancing With Tears In My Eyes) and for Ure the solo artist, who finally bagged a Number One with If I Was in 1985.

On their first three albums, Ultravox proved themselves the first, as well as the best, of the robot rockers.
On Vienna, their first LP without Foxx, Ultravox, too, seem reduced to mimicking their earlier achievements.
The results sound less like Ultravox' old mechanized enervation than the more-is-more "progressivism" of, say, the Moody Blues–anachronistic, pretentious and worn.
