Dislocation is perhaps my favorite Ultravox song. It's spooky, dark, heavy and dominated by a growling keyboards. Lyrics are stark and haunting. I can't imagine what this would have sounded like in 1978. Still sounds like futuristic techno. While pretty basic it's highly addictive and almost takes on a cult hypnotizing feeling. Slow Motion is also one of Ultravox's best tracks from the John Foxx period. Good fusion of punk and synth pop. Probably the best 12" of that period for the band.
