Ultravox - Rage In Eden - 1981


I had heard of Ultravox before, but just out off in the periphery of my musical knowledge.  I knew nothing about them and I had never heard of them at all.  Once I got involved in music online via blogs, forums, torrents, etc, I learned more about them and collected as many albums and tracks as I could find.  They weren't bad, pretty good.  No D2, but they really captured that New Romantic sound that was obviously popular at the time.

Out of all of their albums, I liked Rage In Eden the best, followed quickly by Vienna.  I'll be posting that one later...  It's a shame that I hadn't heard more of them before when I was younger, as learning and listening to them while they existed would've been great.  Who knows, I may have liked them more than D2....  Nah, I don't think so.

Anyway, I recently found these "Deno Edits" of their tracks from this album, almost all of them.  More fan edits that have taken the originals and simply s t r e c h e d them out.  They're fun to listen to, and gives US a reason to have a deluxe version of their best album. 

As you can see, Blogger still hasn't fixed what I've come to learn is a glitch in their system, or something like that.  So, from here on out, I will make sure to zip the covers up in the files along with the albums.  I know that I've been hit or miss on that, but now I will do it for sure...

Enjoy.

  2. Absolutely love both this album and "Vienna." As someone who was into them back in the 80s when these albums came out, I can say that I actually DID like them better than D2 (don't hate me!), but that's just my personal opinion. D2 were obviously a much more popular band, so maybe I just have odd tastes in music, I don't know! But Ultravox has always been one of my favorites. (Though if I'm honest, even as much as I love Ultravox, I like John Foxx's solo work a lot better, particularly "The Golden Section."

  3. Ok now this is what I love to see. Ultravox has always been my second favorite band and I have collected everything I could ever get my grubby little hands on. You name it I had it albums, cd's, 12'' singles, 7'' singles, posters, buttons, t-shirts, videos, autographed items... you get the idea, so I am glad to welcome your version to my Ultravox collection. Thank you. Never heard the Deno Edits, so those will be fun to listen to I'm sure.

    On a side note I know a guy who lives in New York who has had the honor of having Midge Ure perform not once, but twice at his house for a private/invitation only performance. Now how freakin' cool is that!!
