seems like mixed reviews on their social network pages, which is about right.
some are very slowed down in tempo, others are spot on..
all of them are on youtube.
vienna is great:
8 of the songs are from ultravox ----------------------------------- hymn - very slow tempo, ok dancing with tears in my eyes - very minimal, slow tempo man of two worlds - excellent version, with the duo, just about the right tempo vienna - excellent version, just right, although it has non orchestral sounds the voice - well done, good approximation of the sounds, excellent vocals, very intense death in the afternoon - slowed down tempo, very dramatic, picks up at chorus, good lament - excellent all around, great sound and slightly slowed down tempo, some non orchestral sounds reap the wild wind - excellent sound and tempo
so, after what appears to be a very slow start from the first few tracks i wasn't to excited about the prospects of it.
then several good songs came up, with very good versions.
overall, as far as it goes, if you're in the mood for some alternate versions, you will like it. midge's voice is great, and he can still some of the notes like in the past. and its good to finally hear some lesser played songs (at least to me), from their past.
i enjoyed it, but its not for everyone, if you liked the originals only, stick with those.
