One-stop shopping to get your Fixx fix!,
This review is from: Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
This collection truly lives up to its name, delivering all of the obvious hits along with the not-so-obvious ones. Obscure latter day singles like "Driven Out" and the excellent but overlooked "How Much Is Enough" share space with classics like "Saved By Zero", "Deeper And Deeper", "Secret Separation", "The Sign Of Fire", "Are We Ourselves?", "Red Skies", "Stand Or Fall", and the omnipresent "One Thing Leads To Another". And it's all the original recordings, not some cop-out live versions that previous best-ofs included. In between, unfamiliar album tracks delve a little deeper into the Fixx's sound, for a truly great overview of this underrated band! The only thing bad about it? The cheesy, cheap-looking cover makes it look like some budget-line compilation you'd see sitting on the counter at a truck stop. Don't be deceived though, this is truly the Ultimate Collection of the Fixx's music.
