AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A year after launching an artistically successful comeback on CMC International with Elemental, the Fixx returned with 1011 Woodland. Disappointingly, the album followed a typical CMC blueprint -- it delivers a collection of 17 re-recordings. Even worse, these tunes are spread out over two discs when they could have easily fit onto one disc. To the band's credit, they balance the predictable hits ("One Thing Leads to Another," "Saved by Zero," "Secret Separation") with unusual selections from their catalog, and they also give committed performances. But no matter what they do, this is still a padded collection of re-recordings, which even hardcore fans might find a little difficult to accept.
