'The Quartet Lament for a Rage in Vienna' or 'UVOX'. The band never released an album with that name (please tell me they didn't!)

I think they should call it The Prize. And it should include a remix of that song - with synths and lots of drums. laugh

I'm looking forward to hearing the new album but keeping a very open mind on what it will sound like & making no pre-judgements.

I'm sure I shall enjoy it like all the previous albums, albeit to differing degrees, bearing the Ultravox name.

Nah, I reckon it'll be something classy and memorable. A one-word title would seem to be likely and I doubt anything like Reformation would make it (too Spandau Ballet), Reunion (too obvious) or anything referring to reforming. As regards to the inlay design, that should be down to Peter Saville who is probably working on it now, given that he takes AGES to produce something!

To me that sounds way too close to a former album!!

Personally I can't even begin to think what the title might be.

Yeah, probably one word. That's why I said Renaissance, but more as a joke as I guess they won't lay too much emphasis on the fact that they are together again.

Maybe they should set up a contest for this. The winner gets a signed copy and is credited in the album sleeve laugh

I reckon they should simply call it 'ULTRAVOX'

..nothing else needs to be said, it's them, no frills, no gimmicks, just four chaps making something bigger that the sum of the parts.. it's them!

..there has not been an Ultravox album called Ultravox before, 'cos the first one had an exclamation mark at the end!

..plus, if it turns out to be their only foray into the whole arena again, what better way to close the circle than to debut all those years ago with Ultravox! and to close in 2011 with Ultravox


..my second choice would be "The Dreaded Pink Thing was a steaming turd and we think you lot deserved better, so we're sorry, ok?"

I think having done two self titled albums so far (Ultravox! and U-Vox) doing three would be a bit much....

I wonder what the cover will look like? Perhaps it will have the band on the cover for the first time since 1980....

I like it when the album title matches a track name, as in "Vienna", "Rage in Eden" and "Lament".
I wonder what the song titles might be?
I hope sometime soon we might get just a few titles or lyrics 'leaked'??

I hope they *don't* go for a self-referential title. I think they're almost always a mistake. Band names excepted.

How about Unity (shows standing as one once again) or Crystal (as is crystals of ice, which Canada is full of at the moment? Crystal clear music?) Something short and catchy....

Cover could be something icy and mystic, snow capped mountains (real picture, not drawn like We Came To Dance)....

How about Reintegration, or Integration? Has a bit of a mechanical feel about it, a bit like Torque Point....

Or how about Torque Point, as it was never "officially" used?

My tuppeneth is that they'll name the album with one of the song titles and not reference themselves or their renaissance in any particularly overt way.

What would be great (either with the album or at a later date) would a 'Making Of ...' as I think it would be very interesting to hear how they took the plunge to work together again, how they found writing and recording songs together etc etc. I think it would be one of the more meaningful and interesting of those type of documentaries

No, it won't be that. Besides, the B-52s have used it as a title before - and referencing it would all be a bit 'Spinal Tap' wouldn't it.

The tricky thing is going to be coming up with a title that's (a) not been used by any other band before, or (b) not resorting to something that's too cliched or predictable isn't it.

My vote's going to 'Stripeycardie'.

E.G., You've forgotten about the 16th album by Reflex (who had a hit with 'The Politics of Dancing'). That was called 'Stripeycardie'.

In all fairness, as that was a download only acoustic/electro/folk demos album through a third party website, I didn't count that one. But yes, you're right. How could I have forgotten that?...
