Lament is the seventh studio album by British new wave band Ultravox, released in the UK on 6 April 1984. It was the last album featuring original drummer Warren Cann until the band's reunion album Brilliant in 2012. The album peaked at #8 on the UK album chart and was certified Gold by the BPI in June 1984 for 100,000 copies sold. It also reached #25 in Germany and #115 in the United States.
The album's sound saw the band continuing to move away from the synthpop style associated with their previous albums, heading into a more mainstream pop rock direction, not entirely dissimilar to contemporaries such as Simple Minds and U2 featuring greater use of guitar and 'stadium' reverb.
The album was re-released on CD in 1999 with seven bonus tracks consisting of various B-sides and remixes from the Lament period.
The album was once again re-released in 2009 as a double CD set. The first disc consisted of the original album remastered. The second disc contained remixes, B-sides and previously unreleased "work in progress" versions of songs.
