Oblivion is an album by the rock group Utopia, released in January 1984.
The album represents a turning point for the band, stepping away from the relatively stripped down sound of their 1982 self-titled album in favor of a more mainstream, contemporary pop sound, a direction that would continue on the band's following (and final) studio release, POV. This is most notable in the increased use of electronic drum triggers by percussionist John "Willie" Wilcox. In addition, synthesizers and sequencers, common ingredients of Utopia's music dating back to their debut release, feature heavily across the album's runtime.
Released by US-based independent label Passport Records in early 1984, the album generated moderate sales, peaking at #74 on the Billboard 200 in March of 1984.
Three songs off the album were released as singles: "Crybaby" b/w "Winston Smith Takes It on the Jaw" which peaked at #30 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart in February 1984, becoming their biggest hit on that chart; "Love With a Thinker" b/w "Welcome to My Revolution" (released only in the UK); and "Maybe I Could Change" b/w "Love With a Thinker" (released only in Australia). The latter two singles failed to chart.
