3 stars Better known for his works with Sensation Fix, in 1980 Franco Falsini released in a relative discretion the album Cold Nose. This album features reasonable spaced out epics dominated by synthesized guitars, electronic effects and eerie cosmic moves. The result is sometimes pleasant, evocative and relaxing. A nice travelling day into a magnified-abstract universe. However the materials and technologies used for this effort can disconcert a few ones because it sounds really dated. Fragment of light is a epically spacious piece based on attractice guitar riffs covered by very light-coulorful guitar leads with a nice technical touch. Some compositions sound almost cheesy and kitschy today (Strange about the Hands...) notably due to the use of cheap synth effects. Gold Nose Story features some delicate-tripped out minimal melodies. The album closes with a couple of boring electronic rock songs using pop-ish grooves and utterly mediocre radio-friendly melodies. Not very challenging or even surprising. Easy listening stuff that should be recommended only to appreciate Falsini's particular guitar playing. Recommended to fans of Steve Hillage, Tim Blake and others 70's light cosmic soundscapers.
