Returning to MCA after a brief detour on RCA, the Fixx resumed recording after a three-year hiatus following the release of Calm Animals with 1991's Ink. Essentially, Ink is Calm Animals with a stronger dance-rock backbeat and even fewer memorable songs. Unsurprisingly, the effort bombed upon its release, and the Fixx drew to a close shortly afterward. Ink may not have been a graceful way to bow out, yet it does offer ample evidence that the group had run out of ideas.
