"Smooth and Round": a cool piece dominated by Richard Ursillo's bass and Franco Falsini's Eminent (a string organ that sounds like a string synth). His guitar also pops up from time to time.
"Fullglast": Franco's guitar is his showcase here, there's even that one passage that sounds almost bluesy. The end part is where the synthesizers (Moog, Eminent) come in to play.
"Phase One and Phase Two": Guitar showcase, with Eminent popping up. I just love that phasing near the end! Maybe that's why the word "Phase" is used in this piece.
"Underwater": One of the more experimental pieces here, a spacy theme played on Eminent gets played repeatedly, then they go in to something more atmospheric (with again, the Eminent dominating), before suddenly you hear the theme of "Smooth and Round", played in reverse.
"The Next Place of Nobody": A synth experiment that's most like what's found on "Fragments of Light".
"Pasty Day Resistance": I just love how the music starts picking up more and more, as it gets more and more intense. I especially like the bass work as it reaches its most intense. I doubt SENSATIONS' FIX ever created anything as intense as this! Guitar, Eminent, and Moog all get their turn to shine.
"Leave My Chemistry Alone": Well, something sounds a bit familiar with this! Having been familiar with "Finest Finger" for much longer than "Portable Madness", it turns out that the title track to "Finest Finger" was nothing more than "Leave My Chemistry Alone" with vocals added on. The original proves how effective it is without the vocals.
"Strange About the Hands": Again, re-recorded with vocals on "Finest Finger" as "Strange About Your Hands". This original has synthesizers, and has more going on. I just love how this piece then segues in to "With Relative Jump Into Water", which is a very peaceful and relaxing electronic piece, to calm you down after all you faced on this album. Here it's mainly Franco's Eminent droning the whole time, with his Moog popping up. This is one piece I wished was much longer.
Without a doubt "Portable Madness" is the most challenging album SENSATIONS' FIX put out, it's also one of their best as well. While newcomers should start with "Fragments of Light" (easier to get in to, but just as mindblowing), for those wanting something more challenging, go for this album!
