4 stars "Fragments of Light" might be SENSATIONS' FIX's best known album, only because that's their only album to be reissued on CD, the rest you simply have to get on LP. "Finest Finger" is their third album, in which they added a second keyboardist named Steve Head. I am rather bewildered as to why they needed a second keyboardist? Especially since this album is more guitar dominated than "Fragments of Light". Regardless, it's not a bad album, but four of the album's eight cuts have vocals and you can be sure vocals aren't the band's high point (that explains why "Fragments of Light" only features vocals on two cuts, and "Portable Madness" was completely instrumental). There's some great instrumental pieces two, like "Yardbirds Dream" and "Just a Little Bit More on the Curve". "Boat of Madness" is one of the better vocal tracks here, with some interesting use of guitar, then it ends with some cool spacy electronic effects.

The most strange part is two of the songs are re-recordings of stuff from their previous album, "Portable Madness", but with added-on vocals. Those songs from that album, "Leave My Chemistry Alone" and "Strange About the Hands" became "Finest Finger" and "Strange About Your Hands". Sounded like the band ran out ideas. They should have spent their time doing completely new compositions rather than wasting their time recycling stuff from "Portable Madness". The music overall is much similar to "Portable Madness", except more accessible, and vocals are on half the album, and unfortunately the synthesizers don't play as much of a role. The means you won't find anything like "Nuclear War In Your Brain", "Space Closure" (both "Fragments of Light") or "With Relative Jump Into Water" ("Portable Madness") here. Still, I feel "Fragments of Light" is their best album, so start there.

4 stars This album isn't as spacey as "Portable Madness" and it has shorter more accessible tracks on it. Also half the tracks have vocals on them, it's almost like they were trying to become more commercial sounding.

"Strange About Your Hands" was also on "Portable Madness" but without the vocals.This is one of my favourites on here though. The guitar is melancholic to open as vocals join in quickly with bass. A fuller sound when the chorus arrives. The contrast continues. I really like the guitar 2 minutes in and it eventually starts to cry out as the bass throbs. "Just A Little Bit More On The Curve" opens with bass as guitar comes in tastefully with cymbals. Synths a minute in and drums follow. It's cool the way you can hear the two different guitars playing seperately through the left and right speakers. "Yardbirds Dream" is more uptempo as guitar and drums lead the way. "Map" is another favourite of mine. A nice steady beat with guitar sounds so good. Organ comes and goes and drums are prominant late. Beautiful song. "Boat Of Madness" is led early by synths and bass before vocals and drums join in. It becomes psychedelic before 2 1/2 minutes to end it.

"The Left Side Of The Green" opens with guitar, keys and drums as vocals join in. Nice bass a minute in. I love the guitar 1 1/2 minutes in, back to vocals a minute later. A hypnotic beat as the guitar plays over top after 4 minutes. Nice. "Finest Finger" opens with a great sound of synths and drums as vocals join in quickly. Organ before 1 1/2 minutes and after 2 1/2 minutes. The guitar is melancholic after 3 minutes to end it. Excellent track. "Into The Memory" is led by synths as drums and guitars come in before a minute. One guitar is riffing the other is playing over top. A change 3 minutes in to a more psychedelic sound. Drums come in after 4 minutes.

I really like the cover art front and back with the cartoon picture of the band in the subway. It's 3 dimensional which is cool. I like this record a lot, just an enjoyable and relaxing listen. I still can't believe they're from Italy.

3 stars Sensations Fix come from Italy but I find that as hard to believe as the fact that this album is from 1976. This fluid psychedelic rock with weird harmonics and punk vibe rather seems to come from Germany, and the hazy sound almost belongs to the end 80's psych revival of bands like Loop and Spacemen3. But Italy 1976 it is.

My favourite is the opener, a gripping rock song with dreamy guitar chords and chorused bass guitar. The refrain boast a crunchy riff with a type of distortion that sounds exactly like one of my favourite American post-punk bands from a few years later, The Wipers. Coincidence? I don't know, but even the song could have been on a Wipers album. It's sure very refreshing to hear this type of song and sound as early as 1976.

The opener is followed by a string of more traditional and mainly instrumental psychedelic rock songs. All of them driven by upbeat drums and groovy Eastern-tinged bass and guitar riffs. All songs have a slightly off-hand feel, as if they were demo recordings. Not that the sound is bad, it's very clear and organic, but there's a loose vibe, suggestion the guys were mainly just having a bit of fun.

Hawkwind must have been a sure influence. Boat Of Madness reminds me of the Hawk-sound of those years, a sound that came close to early post-punk bands like Magazine, especially due to the way synths are used, not as a solo instrument but rather to add that typical cold atmosphere and catchy melodic leads. The track Finest Finger is a great example of it.

The album is a bit short and apart from the stunning opener it lacks true eye-catchers to warrant more then 3 stars from me. But it's a very nice album nevertheless!

4 stars Very trippy, spacey and trancey and pretty electronic. I'd call the music at different times (or often simultaneously) Psychedelic Space Rock, Psychedelic Krautrock, Progressive Electronic, Psych Ambient, and Kraut Symphonic Prog, as well as rock, jazz, electronic, blues, soul, folk and funk.

4 stars Finest Finger is overall regarded as the best album from SENSATIONS' FIX and sure it is. With the respect to preceding albums this one is maybe less complex, but surely more lyric oriented and little more dark and less crauty. The songs are 3-5 minutes long but all very interesting. The introduct ... (read more)
