  1. 7.0 |   Rave Magazine

    This album is not likely to find a whole new audience, but for Ultravox fans, there will be a wealth of moments to cherish

  2. 6.0 |   Mojo

    A wholly valid return. Print edition only

    In short, if you liked their early Eighties prime, you’ll love this

  4. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Electro-classical quartet revisit New Romantic roots. Print edition only

  5. 5.0 |   Pop Matters

  8. 4.0 |   Q

    A perfectly respectable album, but lacks punch. Print edition only
