"Lament" is an album by Ultravox, released in 1984. This was the seventh full album and the fourth of the band's most-recognisable incarnation, fronted by Midge Ure. It was also the last album featuring original drummer Warren Cann.

The album's sound saw the band continuing to move away from the synth pop/New Wave idiom, heading in a not entirely dissimilar direction to contemporaries such as Echo and the Bunnymen, 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 comprising of various b-sides and remixes from the "Lament" period.
