Fine Fascination is the debut album from multi-national, London, England-based rock band Red Light Company. The album is set for release on Lavolta/Sony BMG on 2 March 2009 in the UK. The album was produced by Adrian Bushby (U2, Placebo, Foo Fighters).

In a generally positive review, Clash Music concluded that "To some, RLC's flagrant flaunting of ambition can seem distasteful and, one thing's for certain, if you've your crosshairs trained on arenas then you'd better have the ammunition to back up the big time posturing. At times here they fall short – slingshot aimed at the moon short – but often their aim rings true. And on these occasions they are devastating."[9]
