Format: Vinyl
1974's Portable Madness was Sensations' Fix's second album (barring the self-entitled album only available as a promo). Fragments of Light was, in all purpose, their official debut album, and it's a great album of spacy electronic and prog rock, although there are two vocal cuts showing that vocals aren't the group's high point. Fragments of Light seems to be more of a Franco Falsini solo album (he plays guitar, Moog, and Eminent 310), although on some of the cuts he gets help from Keith Edwards (an American) on drums, and former Campo di Marte bassist Richard Ursillo. Portable Madness, on the other hand, is a full band involvement, and what this album benefits from compared to all others: it's all instrumental! Vocals were never their strong point (listen to "Do You Love Me" from Fragments of Light and you'll know what I mean). Once again released on Polydor, and like Fragments of Light, the LP comes with a textured cover. From listening to this album, you can tell all three members get equal footing, and all the piece segue into each other. Guitar and synthesizer get equal footing too. I have noticed a couple cuts were rerecorded for their 1976 followup Finest Finger, that is "Strange About the Hands" (becoming "Strange About Your Hands") and "Leave My Chemistry Alone" (becomes "Finest Finger"), those remakes featured vocals where the originals did not. I really can't compare this to anyone else. Many compared it to Heldon, mainly because their leader, Franco Falsini doubles up on both guitar and synths, but Franco's approach is often much less elaborate than Heldon, and he doesn't use sequencers like Richard Pinhas (head guy of Heldon) often did. Fripp and Eno was the other comparison, but then they too had a big impact on Richard Pinhas as they did Franco Falsini.Read more ›
