    I love all of them, but ELEMENTAL is my favorite!
    Is this the way of the world, to take a boy and a girl and show them lying is real!

    Welcome aboard Delfixxture!
    Oops! I just checked out your old moniker: seems you've been around here longer than I have!
    Hey, is there any chance you'd like to post some flyers up for the Colosseum show? Even if you live hours away, it would still be nice to let the people where you are know that The Fixx is coming.

    Oh, and great job on training the kids, music-wise!
    So glad to have you aboard!

    It's still,and most likely will always be "Reach The Beach". Its impact on me when I was 15 was/is indelible,along with 2 other amazing albums I got that year:"Synchronicity"-The Police and "Business as Usual"-Men at Work. The nostalgic factor permeating these gems is immeasurable(and I just think all 3 are still great records,period)

    My 5 favorite Fixx albums,in order,are:

    1. Reach The Beach
    2. Walkabout
    3. Phantoms
    4. Shuttered Room
    5. Calm Animals

    an old article from pollstar:

    "Formed in 1980, The Fixx came rushing out of the London New Wave with their debut album, 1982's Shuttered Room. Although they scored hits throughout the decade, they may be best known for their album Reach The Beach, which went double platinum with its radio hits "One Thing Leads To Another" and "Saved By Zero." Their latest album, Want That Life, was released in 2003.


    " Their latest album, Want That Life, was released in 2003. "


    Could it really be that long ago???? God- how quickly the days go by!"

    Is everyone ready for a 200-SIX FIXX????


    wonder if walkabout may resurface after they get all the new ones completed ???

    My choice was Shuttered Room. Because this was the album that introduced these guys to the music world. Because it is filled with wonderful stuff. And because it gave us a glimpse of their great potential. Which they have capably fulfilled........

    What are 1011 Woodland and Stage One doing in there?

    Wasn't Stage One incredibly rare with only 1000 copies or so?

    Yup, been to three concerts.

    It's a hard choice between Reach the Beach and Phantoms, but i have really been enjoying Happy Landings as well.

    Question is, why is it that no one seems to be playing any of the Fixx's newer stuff around here? I mean..it's all good. I took two friends to the last concert (they are heavy metal and Stones fans, respectively), and one of them was asking the same question...

    My favorite is still Elemental.

    Why that name?

    The album was taken from the mega-tracked Happy Landings EP and was reduced down to a cleaner sound.

    Or

    It could be an occult reference to a supernatural being associated with an earthly element. It's been mentioned already that The Fixx (or maybe just Cy?) dabbles in paganism.

    ok i know it's a kinda old thread, but right now i'm stuck in Walkabout

    Sense the Adventure just hit me one day -- WHAM!! -- made me see i've been a sheep for a long long time, and tired of it so i decided to let my pagan OUT and stop the bleating!!

    Camphor also gets me right where it's at...so so dreamy. I'd LOVE to have extended live versions of both....

    meantime, the fantasy continues.....

    Explain the cosmic forces to me.....
