Ultraviolet is the fourth and final studio album by All About Eve. It was the only album that the band released with MCA. Despite quite positive reviews at the time this album was not commercially successful, reaching only #36 on the UK charts. The two singles only reached, respectively, #38 and #57 in the UK singles charts. As a consequence of this, the band were dropped by MCA shortly afterwards.

"Outshine the Sun" was frequently used at the band's gigs for a finale. "Some Finer Day" was the last single released by the band for twelve years, "Let Me Go Home" being the next one in 2004.
