I joined the Forum mainly due to the fact i bought Vienna the album recently. It brought back memories for me as i had the album back in 1980 and saw them on the Vienna Tour. The music sounds as fresh and alive now as back then.

I had first heard Ultravox when i bought the Systems of Romance LP - i dont know about anyone else, but i am sure i first heard Ultravox on the Old Grey Whistle Test when they played Slow Motion which i had on single - what a great song.

I kept with the band through Vienna the Album and beyond. Listening to the album now, one thing strikes me - why was Private Lives not used as a single? - it is head and shoulders above some of the other tracks taken from the album and sounds more like classic Ultravox than many other songs they did on the album. Its just a point but worth joining and hearing everyones thoughts on it!!

Hi - welcome!

Completely agree about Private Lives, it's one of my favourite tracks and to be honest I think it's prob the best on the album imho.. It was perversely a highlight of the first live gig I ever saw - Canterbury odeon on 12th December 80' - went along on the strength of hearing Sleepwalk and stood in the pit in front of the p.a. stack (I was young!).. All went swimmingly as the song screamed to it's halt, I swear to this day that the loudest thing I've EVER heard was that moment when they come crashing back in.. Awesome, damagingly awesome!

Indeed!

Private Lives & Western Promise are my faves off Vienna.

On the subject of loudness, I saw the Vienna tour at the Birmingham Odeon and it was SOOOO LOUD that my hearing was seriously impaired for several hours after the gig.

The only other gig that competed with it was Blancmange supporting DM where the floor was vibrating and my eardrums suffered serious grief.

Pardon? confused2
