AllMusic Review by

EMI Gold's Ultravox compilation offers a good but unsurprising spread from the seminal new romantics' songbook. The usual suspects are here -- "Vienna," "Dancing with Tears in My Eyes," "Reap the Wild Wind," "Sleepwalk" -- but no long-lost basement cuts or special remixes are included to separate this collection from the glut of identically sequenced offerings already on the market from Disky and EMI. It's a decent jumping-off point for the casual fan, but Chrysalis' The Collection does a more concise job of it by omitting some of the more forgettable tracks from 1986's tepid U-Vox album.
