4 stars Franco Falsini is the main man behind psychedelic proggers SENSATIONS' FIX. After a couple of highly rated albums by the band Franco was approached about doing a movie soundtrack. Much in the way PINK FLOYD used to get asked. The subject matter was cocaine (cold nose) and they felt that the spacey, psychedelic music he did with his band would suit the subject matter. Well the soundtrack got done but the movie...not so much. I wonder why ? Too many frozen noses ? Who knows ? The music here is really good. Drifting, dreamy, very far out. Falsini it should be noted plays all the instruments and there are no drums.

"Parte 1" is beautiful as we get bass, guitar and synths that create a melancholic but gorgeous soundscape. A change 7 minutes in as we get guitar only but then it re-builds. "Parte 2" kicks in right away with a more "in your face" type of sound. The guitar solos over top 5 minutes in. A change before 6 1/2 minutes to the end.

"Parte 3" is the side long closing suite. We get pulsating sounds as the guitar solos early on. A change after 3 1/2 minutes as synths come to the fore and they're quite loud. Electronics join in too. It changes back to the earlier sound after 7 minutes. Another change 11 minutes in as it becomes spacey and atmospheric. It kicks in after 14 minutes with guitar and more. Vocals after 16 minutes as it settles. This is a beautiful section that is quite spacey to end it.

This fits in nicely with the other SENSATIONS' FIX albums I own. Beautiful stuff.
