Ultravox? Cool. Midge Ure's album, Orchestrated, is amazing.

The Simple Minds 5-CD classic album box set is a worthy addition to any collection.

i will simply say that the 2CD set Live: In The City of Light is brill, despite the fact that is has one shiatty tune on it that could have been replaced by a dozen magnificent tunes, tunes like Up On The Catwalk for example.

I'd say something similar about Echo & The Bunnymen.
Most stations insist on playing that gawd-awful moon song when there are whole albums of material that actually have aural worth.
I used to drink in a bar where there was a bar maid called Kata. She was a proper grumpy so & so & one evening The Cutter was on the music machine. My friend & I turned to each other & sang, "Spare us the Kata" at the exact same time one evening. No prompting or anything.

Hey now, I love The Killing Moon, but the entire album is just awesome.

that is a great track. i almost played it. have played squeeze a few times but never that track.

Well, to each their own & all that.
For me it was a massive disappointment after 3 really brilliant albums & they never really recovered after that.
They just seemed to try to replicate that sort of vibe.
The only thing I liked about Ocean Rain was the sleeve.
Fair enough if others enjoy it though.

It took me ages to find this Fireflies track.
It was used on the Killing Eve soundtrack & even shazam couldn't identify it at first.
 
2020-12-10 2:43:20 PM  
Vienna is an amazing song.  You can hear the fog.  Visions in Blue is a haunting song that I'm surprised isn't in more movies.
Ultravox best of album was the first CD i bought with my own money.
