Lament is the seventh studio album by British new wave band Ultravox, released in the UK on 6 April 1984. It was the last album featuring original drummer Warren Cann until the band's reunion album Brilliant in 2012. The album peaked at on the UK album chart and was certified Gold by the BPI in June 1984 for 100,000 copies sold. It also reached in Germany and in the United States.
Lament was Ultravox's seventh studio album. As the title implies, it's not a happy affair, but the somber mood that pervades it only serves to heighten its elegance. There are sorrowful synths throughout, and themes of heartache, bleak futures and socio-political destruction. The title track alone is a slow, solemn ode to cycles of suffering and depression, complete with soft musical moaning heard behind the one-word chorus of "Lament". Sadness has seldom been so beautiful. The original Lament, released on vinyl and cassette in 1984, was a lean, mean eight songs, with four songs on each side. Unfortunately, when it was first released on CD, they added three remixes of songs from the album's first side. This isn't a bad thing in and of itself - I'm sure it was intended as a nice little bonus for Ultravox fans.

Fingers crossed Ultravox do return again one day, I managed to see them on the Return to eden part 2 and Brilliant tours and I absolutely loved the Brilliant album. I Also managed to find a good number of live recordings from the reunion tours which is great as I feel I have too few live recordings of the "Classic" years. Today I was getting back to this thread and in parallel revisted an interview on electricityclub. Mr. Lipson was quoted in regards to why "Brilliant" did not do so well: "Not a clue. While I am usually trying not to say negative things, my take on this is simple: If Ultravox had produced the album by themselves they would have sounded much better. The next album (produced by Oldfield himself) was much better received.
