Vienna album cover



What seemed like a permanent split after Systems of Romance became a very unlikely comeback story when Midge Ure stepped in on vocals and guitar, Conny Plank returned as coproducer and the band ended up with a out and out smash hit single with the title track. Vienna as an album heralded the phase two triumphs of Ultravox perfectly, Ure matching and contrasting elegant electronic rock energy with his own yearning vocals, with singles like “Sleepwalk” and “Passing Strangers” further establishing their remarkable new success.
