“Fuzzy” by Grant Lee Buffalo (1993) Never heard of this album or this group. Some innovative instrumentation, but the drums and bass lack the creativity that is evident in guitar and keyboards. Virtually no lead guitar, nearly all acoustic strumming, done competently enough, but it’s monotonous by the end of the album. Melodies are uninspired, necessitated by Lee’s limited vocal range. The lyrics on this album are needlessly opaque. The only interesting cut is the 17-verse “Dixie Drug Store” which tells a coherent story with a not entirely unpredictable twist. But it lacks soul. This entire album barely skims the surface of emotion. We could all pass on this one. 1/5

Meh. This album was alright, but nothing special for me. I would probably listen to it again, but wouldn't recognize the artist as distinctive. I'm not sure if that makes it 2 or 3 stars, but I'll default to 3.

Fuzzy is a perfectly serviceable album, very much of its time with its distinctive early 90s alt.rock vibe and sound. I found it enjoyable enough, but it didn't blow me away.

Didn’t make a big impression. Nothing in the lyrics really grabbed me, most of the singing wasn’t very strong, and the music was fine, but not as interesting as the reviews would have led me to believe.

I was hoping this would be more than just your standard 90s alt/indie rock. There are occasional glimmers with the ragtime piano on the first and 8th track and some interesting 12-string guitar sounds, but that's about it. Not saying it's bad, but just a bit too safe to stand out.

This was not what I expected. The name made me think it'd be way more country than it was.... In the end it was really solid alternative rock with warm, driving, bounding bass and drums, unreal guitar tones, great piano interludes and an engaging vocal performance. The opener is a belter of an opening track for an album, and leads into a soft spoken tune with chorusey acoustic guitar at the opposite end of the spectrum... It was really good

Kein Begriff von diesem Grant Lee Buffalo gehabt; kommt schmissig und locker aus der Umkleide, spielt ein geradlinigen Ball, mit viel Druck und wenig Spirenzchen. Ein schönes Spiel, robust aber immer sauber. Class of 93 wusste noch, worauf es ankam. Das Album wirkt auf mich zudem wie die Blaupause zum Stilgepräge, wonach Jonathan Franzen die Figur des Richard Katz („Freedom“) zusammenbaute. Irgendwie altbacken, grobschrötig und doch mit der psychologischen Sensibilität eines Kindes jener Zeit beschlagen. Handwerklich sehr gut, teils virtuos, ironiefreie Haltung, persönlich, und ja sorry fürs Wort: glaubwürdig. Crafty 3.8

Really good, classic of the genre and if it's good enough for Michael Stipe, its' good enough for me. "America Snoring" is standout track to me, but love the overall feel and mood of the record. My total sweet spot -- both in style and timing -- early ;90s but I didn't give them enough time back in the day. I almost certainly would have seen them open for someone but can't recall. They deserved more recognition for sure.

Olipa kiva yllätys, tykkään. Varsinkin alkupuoli erittäin jees ja pari oikein kaunista biisiä. Vähän kuin jenkkiversio Kentistä, eli konstailematonta ysärin alt rockia. Loppupuoli oli vähän meh ja meni ehkä välillä turhaksi indiekikkailuksi. Sanoisin silti tasan 3.5/5 ja pyöristellään taas ylöspäin.

4.0 - Any of these songs would’ve been absolutely PERFECT as filler for a mix CD you gave to your crush back in ’93. It’s actually a solid record - very in the middle of a lot of different sounds from that era. "Jupiter And Teardrop" is a terrific archetypal 90s acoustic/electric love ballad. I like the way "Stars N' Stripes" trails off moodily at the end. "Dixie Drug Store" tells a fun story - very rom-comesque. "America Snoring" and "Grace" showcase some generic political coffeehouse musings. Lots of heart, lots of charm.

This has always been a band I've had in the back of my head as something I should listen to and like. Here I am listening to them and liking. Enjoyably dramatic 90s rock. Vocals stand out, for sure. Gives me Jeff Buckley vibes? I'll probably go back to not listening to them, but thinking, "Ya know...I oughta."

Debut album from the Los Angeles trio. Some describe their music as a type of alt-country; I would put them firmly in the rock category. Their best songs tend to have soaring guitars and vocals building towards guitar solos in an almost epic and anthem-like style. And, there is no doubt Grant Lee Phillips has a great rock voice. I'd say they do the soft-loud-soft-loud dynamic but different than Emo or The Smashing Pumpkins. I read a comparison to Neil Young which I see especially with the mid-song guitar solos and the subjects he covers: environment, abortion, racial issues and broken dreams. There a number of very good songs on this album. "Jupiter and Teardrop" is good example of the soaring guitar and vocals towards guitar solos. "Wising You Well" is very dramatic and builds which this band seems well apt to excel at. "America Snoring" is a commentary of the USA circa 1993 and maybe the centerpiece of the album commenting on abortion and race riots in LA. This is the first Grant Lee Buffalo album I've dug into; well, I've been missing out. A definite keeper and makes me want check out their other albums, most of which appear to be worth doing.

Der erste Song, „The Shining Hour“, ließ mich eine Augenbraue heben: hatte sich da jemand im Jahrzehnt vertan? War 10 Jahre zu früh dran und kämpfte nun in Amerika allein gegen Pathos und Wucht von (Post-) Grunge überall um ihn herum? Naja, relativierte sich dann ja bisschen über die Langstrecke, aber ein bisschen anders ist das schon. Nächster wirklich aufgefallener Song dann erst das schön garagig shoegazende „Grace“ fast zum Schluss - positiv aufgefallen natürlich. Insgesamt: war nett, Sie kennengelernt zu haben! 2,9

The first thing that struck me was this sounded quite a lot like Big Music era Waterboys, but maybe lacked a bit of their pizzazz. I gave it two listens, and it's perfectly acceptable, I suppose, but nothing really left an impression. Fave track.... uh, "Soft Wolf Tread", maybe? This album didn't make me want to look up specific track names very often. 😑

This album is a big reason I’m doing this project: to discover an album/artist I didn’t know that is good. Great is better, but good is good, and I think Grant Lee Buffalo’s “Fuzzy” is pretty darn good. Major Bowie vibes at times, but set against more rootsy music. I listened to it once and then half of it again in the evening because I was still intrigued!

Iskreno nisam imao nešta vremena ga preslušati detaljno, no ovo što sam čuo, nije baš nešta iskreno posebno, ne da je loše, nego jednostavno mi se baš nije toliko ni slušao album, nije me zadržao da budem željan slušanja. Iako je Michael Stipe iz grupe R.E.M. rekao da je ovo najbolji album 1993, ne bi se sigurno s njim složio, a zbog toga sam i dobio želju da ga poslušam. Okej su pjesme, međutim ne dira me previše.

I sorta like the sound, but not enough to listen to nearly an hour of it. It's indie folk with Americana influences. The tracks are nice to listen to individually, and there are many redeemable qualities that folk musicians can learn from, but the flaws get increasingly annoying as the album goes on, becoming almost monotonous by the 2nd half. Songwriting not particularly provoking or clear either.

His voice sounds very much like the waterboys on the first track, I swore he was irish and then saw it was an american rock group. It is not my favourite rock sound, like a mellow, laid back style of rock which doesn't resonate with me. It is pleasant enough though, I am happy to listen through. Not liking their choice of chords, they always seem so melancholy. It is making me feel a bit sad. America Snoring was better though.

The moment I saw the album cover, name of the band and album cover, I knew I was going to hate this. After the first 30 seconds I wrote, “fuuuuck, I knew it.” But then after a while I realize even though I wanted to hate it, I didn’t really hate it. I heard I think all of the bands from the early 90s in their sound, Pixies, Morrissey, Jane’s Addiction, REM, Four Non-Blonds, Jeff Buckley, etc. mid way through there were a couple 4s in my rankings, surprised the breached 3. But then the lyrics started to stand out and I realized they were awful, Dixie Frug Store maybe the worst offender. And the quality dropped. Thank god I didn’t like it. 2.

Pierwsze slysze, a brzmi dosc generycznie jak na rokowe standardy lat 90, to raczej nawet gdybym gdzies slyszal, to nie przypomnialbym tego sobie, plyta z 93, ktora jest debiuten pana Granta, nagrywana jako trio z Kimblem na basie i klawiszach oraz Petersem od instrumentow membranofonowych, sam Buffalo poza wokalem ogrywa jeszcze gitary, akustyka i elektryka, wiec plyta mocno overdubowana co dziwnie czuc, niby znosnie sie tego slucha i sa momenty gdzie zmiana pomiedzy akustykiem, a elektrykiem w locie daje ciekawe efekty, jak na tytulowym traku, ktory jako jedyny jest sluchany na spotifaju, bo iles milionow wyswietlen ma, gdy reszta plyty ledwo setki, bo reszte najkrocej podsumowac mozna jako mialkie 48 minut rozbite na 11 trakow, plyta nuzy nie tylko dlugoscia, jest to alternatywny rock, ale pan buffalo nie tylko z nazwiska czy okladki wyklada raczej na folkowca, bo lirycznie tez potrafi opowiadac o wszystkim i o niczym, a znalezc w tym cos dla siebie bylo mi ciezko, jedynie kawalek dixie drug store swoim poziomem absurdu i jambalajowym chorusem mnie kupil, wiec bedzie to plejkowy pick, ale reszta pomimo tego, ze jest sluchalna nie trafila do mnie, do tego dochodza denerwujace aspekty techniczne tego overdubowania, ktore nadaje sztucznosci brzmieniu, a zwlaszcza majac swiezo przesluchanego lajwa od Younga jest to jeszcze wyrazniejsze, kolejna sprawa sa wokale, ktore tez dziwne zmasterowane, bo o ile pan Lee spiewa jak spiewa ani mnie on grzeje, ani chlodzi, to jednak sa moemty gdzie trzeba krecic glosnoscia w jedna czy druga strone, bo pozycja wokalu lubi sie zmieniac z utworu na utwor, moze przez to ze w dwoch roznych studiach nagrywane, ale zeby az tak to bylo slychac jest niecodziennym sluchowiskiem

There were moments when I liked the music and his voice, but overall I thought it a weird and inconsistent album, and a band that didn't understand their sound or what style they were aiming for.

Mir fällt nichts originelles dazu ein. Vielleicht, weil das ganze Album nicht besonders originell ist.

Honestly, didn't care for it. I like that they tried, but I can see why it didn't work

Not outstanding in anyway. Definitely an album that makes me not want to listen to the list for a few days

Fuzzy is the debut album from the rock band Grant Lee Buffalo. The songs are mostly Americana rock, which makes it surprising that this album only charted in the UK. I believe this album is forgettable and I'm not sure why it's on this list of "greatest 1001" albums.

I guess this was alt-country, but it was plodding both emotionally and in tempo. Glad I missed it back then.
