Something I don't see mentioned in the listings for the UK LP with a textured or 'relief' cover is that there was more than one kind of textured sleeve. My copy is textured like woodchip wallpaper but I remember there were also copies with a sort of ripple effect. There may have been one or two others too.

His "bono-esque" self-importance aside (hence the ambiguous title of the album), Ure's brilliance as an artist cannot be underestimated, especially evident shining all the way through this, a debut solo album of his. Squeezed somewhere between the experimental and the 80s' cheesiness, "The Gift" is a downright masterpiece spot-on. While the curse of Ultravox is audible in most of what it delivers - judging from the typical guitar/synth slides and the crooning wrapped up in the everlasting melancholy - "The Gift" at the same time maintains its own consistency, isolated away from the Ultravox mk-II era albums released up to that point. It may be viewed as over-expressive or over-ambitious, but as a whole the record offers a pleasant trip through the icy pastoral landscape decorated with top-notch technological licks for good measure, that are not at all far from what Peter Gabriel or Bill Nelson had done at the time. Not that Ure is a copycat - this is without doubt a signature work that will last, and according to the album's title, it truly is a rewarding listen. The gift of music in its purest sense.

Crijevo - I take issue with the notion of Ure's "bono-esque self-importance." I can't agree with that. Midge Ure is as down to earth and unaffected as any musician who has accomplished all that he has, that you could ever hope to meet. The title of the album is not ambiguous. It's is a heartfelt ode to the genius of Charles Rennie Mackintosh; one of Glasgow's seminal artists of a Modernist bent.
