At the start of 1981, Ultravox were laying their claim to be one of the defining acts of the 80s following the global success of hit Vienna. Heading back into the studio the same year invigorated, they recorded their second album with Midge Ure as frontman, Rage in Eden, which hit the Top 5 in the UK album charts. Quartet, their third album with Ure, came in quick succession in 1982 with production from legendary Beatles producer George Martin. Continuing the band’s impressive chart run, it became their third Top 10 album, featuring four Top 20 singles including the anthem Hymn.
