    From the 'mellow' Fixx album...

    Roger And Out

    Touch is second and would be better for airplay. Brave is a remarkable tune: there's a great soul feel to it (kinda un-Fixx though, which makes it so special).

    Cool

    I picked "TOUCH" I like the meditative lyrics and the mellow instrumentals. Are You Satisfied and Prove are my next pics.

    Prove is by far the best on this one
    Is this the way of the world, to take a boy and a girl and show them lying is real!

    Want That Life
    You Don't Have to Prove Yourself
    Roger and Out

    Want that Life is such a simple melody, yet conveys a heavy message....I think that's what I like about it.
    You Don't Have to Prove Yourself also has a great message and a catchy melody.
    And for some reason I seem to think Roger and Out reminds me of the whole feel of the Reach the Beach album....just a bit.
    Maybe it's just me.
    Love them all though!!!!!!

    I think Want That Life (as a song) is underrated. It is a simple melody like you point out but has a complex structure in the layers of sound. SWEET!

    Roger And Out most definately reminds of RTB. That was my first impression way back when it came out.

    We Don't Own The World
    --just because Cy truly hit the mark, with what I really believe and am about, with this song...upbeat, but stating the plain truth.

    Close behind..."Touch" (Jamie's guitar and backing vocals at the beginning...whew) and "Straight 'Round the Bend"(Jamie's guitar hook--LOVE IT--and trying to reach Cy's high note in it...LOL!)

    *"Brave" could play on a Gospel station...hmmm, another market?

    Taking the long way home ...has become a presonal favorite ...

    But Are you Sarisfied also has a special place in my heart!!!
    You pass like the moon in silence
    In the warm flooded air
    Looking back to those lost opportunities
    So often missed or ignored
    A thousand times I start heading for the dawn
    Only to turn around and face this rue once more
    There 's something ahead of you

    Wow, this is hard - all the songs sound so diverse! I think it's a tie between Want That Life and Roger And Out.

    I love the wistful guitars on 'Satisfied.' Part of The Fixx's trademark sound...

    Is this the 'official' thread for this album?

    This seems to me a significant benchmark in The Fixx's history and was hoping for more reactions to it.

    I loved this album so much & wish I could read something more - anything on the band's thoughts on this album; their perspectives, about their lives at the time of the recordings, any symbolism that contributed toward the songs... whether there were any videos too.

    Maybe you're like me in the album being part of your own life's soundtrack in '03 or '04... I was living overseas and found the album by total chance. It accompanied me on many a good hike out in town, after hours...

    I vote "Touch"

    The video on YouTube...watched over & over & over

    I don't know what I just said or why.
