4 stars Franco Falsini is an Italian multi-instrumentalist and mastermind behind the unique band 'Sensations Fix'. He composed this solo album between SF's 'Portable Madness' and Finest Finger' albums, and the result is, well, almost another SF album, just performed solo !! The LP is set out simply with, Side 1 - 'Parte 1' - 10.23 and 'Parte 2' - 6.55, and side 2 - 'Parte 3' - 20.57 (there must be slight timimg discrepencies between vinyl and CD formats). Each part seems to be a medley made up of various snippets of musical ideas, presenting a truly experimental extravaganza. The first mood is typically SF, mysterious, dark and floaty, with processed guitar and those semi-tone riffs he loved to use. Falsini also handles synths, and bass - he seems so immersed in his own musical universe it really sounds like a full band but without any drums. Some of the fragments work, although at some points, his ideas can meander a little, and not every section is consistently mind-blowing, but 'Cold Nose', which is a soundtrack to a film of the same name (or 'Naso Freddo', in Italian - don't know what it's about), is definately a must for Sensations Fix fans, spacey guitar freaks, and Italian prog in general. Overall, an excellent album.
