I find it strange that the extended/mixed tracks are stuffed in the middle of the cd. Why break up the lp? The only other one out there that I'm aware of is Howard Jones Humans Lib, and only one track - What is Love extended.

Proudly states "Digitally Mastered" on the rear sleeve, did we realise back then what this actually meant? Great Songs though.

Discogs, you might want to check the release information at the top of this page. Is the date verifiable? Albums in the UK were generally released on Mondays throughout the 1980s, so I have my doubts about "Friday April 6th" as the UK release date. I say this as someone who was there at the time and frequently bought albums on the day of release!

For an 80's picture disc, can anyone comment on how the sound quality is for this pressing?

As opposed to most of the other Ultravox album re-issues, this is as faithful to the original design as can be, beautiful packaging!
But, to call this a "Definitive Edition" is a bit sad though, as first of all, Man Of Two Worlds (Instrumental) that is included on the other re-issues of this album is absent. If to make any sense, why not make CD 1 as the original CD with the three extra remix tracks and fill CD2 with at least the long German remix of Heart of the Country, Man Of Two Worlds (Instrumental) and why not the US 12" Dancing W/One Small Day?

As stated in the edit history, I was involved in the production & release of the 2017 'Lament' 2018 other Ultravox album re-issues an, categorically, no specific releases were made for the US or any other territory other than the UK & Europe. This item (and the other 2017 'US' releases) are simply the UK/European edition with an importer's sticker and should not warrant a separate listing.

However I have repeatedly been voted down on edits so am making the comment here instead.

My C side is severely off-centred and practically unlistenable beyond C1 - all true that those are the most lame tracks on this release, but still (I'd switch C2 + C3 for Lament (Extended Mix))
How are your copies?

The remastering isn't that bad at all - the album is really OK even if I still prefer my original UK copy.

Mastering is a little on the hot side, but is refreshingly clear and vivid - this after enduring the relatively mediocre sound quality of the Baby Driver soundtrack on NEW vinyl. I mean, just LISTEN to the intensity of those Linn drums on "White China"...... DANG.

The Cinram-pressed wax is exceptionally quiet even by Canadian standards - other than some light rumble in between tracks, the noise floor is totally inaudible. All of the Ultravox albums I've previously heard on vinyl have had consistently great and clear sound quality - just added this one to my collection and this is no exception.

Not to mention that my dad introduced me to Ultravox and Bill Nelson! 😂
