    What's Your Favorite Fixx Album Cover?

    Has this poll been done before? I thought it would be fun.
    You can pick the multiple album covers you like the most. If I had made it a single-vote poll I think "Reach the Beach" would probably be the only one to register votes. So vote for all those covers that you like.
    The covers can be found here: album covers

    Hey....this was hard!!! I voted for Reach the Beach....but geez, I mean, Shuttered Room, Calm Animals, Want That Life, even Ink, I thought were good. None of them bad. Kinda like picking your favorite Fixx song or album....there might be a fave, but you really like them all!
    I also liked how the artwork for Reach the Beach and Phantoms were similar.

    I wish they could have continued the George Underwood cover art for all their albums with all covers being a variation on the 'guy' from "Reach the Beach" and "Phantoms". Maybe for their next album in the Spring they could go back to that. I always thought it was very iconic.

    Notice how the 'missing links' cover incorporates a little bit of all past covers? Kinda cool.


    ALSO....! Remember you can vote for multiple album covers in this poll so by all means vote for all those you like.

    I have been thinking about this one for a bit now, and it's been very hard to decide. I guess I will pick Calm Animals. This is like picking a favorite song too, very difficult, but a great question!
    I am the winner in any event.

    Since he said I could pick more than one

    I selected Shuttered Room and Phantoms; I was drawn to the darkness and cubism, respectively. I also chose React, because I used to have that one and wore the tape out! The last one I picked was the Extended Versions, because I like the group photo...

    I took Phantoms and Want That Life. There's also a lot to be said for Calm Animals and Elemental, as I see it. All the images are very well done: colorful, imaginative and pleasing to the eye. Can't miss no matter what you pick. John

    Reach The Beach--such a strong image, great color placement, good composition, and organic, yet geometric feel.

    Want That Life--again, another strong one, the simplicity but strength of statement(s) made by that image.

    The Millenium Collection--well, what can I say? I like pictures of (Jamie and) all the guys! LOL!

    Reach The Beach is such a classic cover. It would be nice to see some new G.U. art on a Fixx record.

    I vote for a different one, and it is not even on the poll list (although it is a single).
    I think George Underwood's cover art for the "Less Cities, More Moving People" single is my favorite, and personally I think it should have been the Phantoms cover.

    I like all their covers so it would be hard to make a decision there.
    The following forum is rated Fixx and may contain styles of new wave and rock. Fan discretion is advised.

    There are New Horizons past the sunset,
    Another day has past and turned to night,
    To explore the unknown that's beyond us,
    The vision of tomorrow which lies ahead.
