Fuzzy

Album Summary

Fuzzy is the debut studio album by American rock band Grant Lee Buffalo, released in 1993 by Slash Records. According to the band's website, "Fuzzy would galvanize the sound of Grant Lee Buffalo, i.e., the acoustic feedback howl of overdriven 12-string guitars, melodic distorto-bass, tribal drum bombast, the old world churn of pump organs and parlor pianos."R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe praised Fuzzy as "the best album of the year hands down".

“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

I didn’t expect it but the album has everything I enjoy and will easily become one of my all time favourites. Grungy 90s vocals, folky tunes, Americana and just a right amount of politics make this a perfect combination of 90s alternative. I love it! Also I feel like there’s not a single filler on it - each song has something that draws me further into them. Hard to pick a favourite track!

It took me a bit to warm up, but warm up I did! This was new music and a new band to me (although I realized I'd seen Grant-Lee Phillips as the troubadour on "Gilmore Girls"). I really liked the acoustic alternative sound. I'd be happy to listen to more!

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.

What a gem — such a solid alt-rock album with a mix of styles on it. I’ve listened to it twice through on long-ish drives and really enjoyed it. It’s great highway music. He’s a great singer too. He sounds like Father John Misty on a few tracks. The opening notes of “Jupiter and Teardrop” sound so much like David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream.” It has to be a direct reference / deliberate fake-out. I got a kick out of that. My favorite songs so far: “The Shining Hour,” “Jupiter and Teardrop,” “Fuzzy,” “Stars n’ Stripes,” “Dixie Drug Store”

You know what, quite enjoyable. Almost bland on first listen but had some high points on the second. Something I'll listen to again just to be sure. Soft rock rhythm, upbeat.

I feel like I may have heard Grant Lee Buffalo a handful of times as a teenager and blown it off. I was mightily impressed to hear it with a more mature outlook. The vocals were slightly reminiscent of Bowie and I think it is a very rich and unapologetic album that stands pretty tall. I gave it two listens, because I am always intrigued with artists that I truly hear for the first time and genuinely like! This sounds authentic and technically pleasing.

Whoa, really liked this one! It's rock, feels like it's got a tinge of Americana to it, but the melodies and vocal performances are just so full of life and excitement, it's such a nice departure from what we've had lately. It's weird, I can't really point to any one thing that's fantastic on here, but it's all just done really well. Very crisp and engaging instrumentals, great vocals, just really good stuff. I'm always leery of artists I've never even heard of appearing on a list like this, but damn, this was worth the inclusion for sure. Favorite tracks: The Shining Hour, Wish You Well, The Hook, Dixie Drug Store, America Snoring. Album art: Just a guy, low-res guy even. Not at all suggestive of how good the music is, extremely unassuming. I can't say I like this cover, but I like what it's hiding. 4.5/5

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. 😑

Very nice pacing, the opening track sets the mood, and leads to one of the nicest campfire ballads I've heard on this list. First three songs are amazing, after that it just digs itself down in the depths of unrecognizable country music. Nice vibe, but it falls short as it goes along. high 3

I have heard of Grant Lee Buffalo, but I couldn't tell you anything more than that they are a band. I know that I liked seeing Grant-Lee Phillips as a "town troubador" on TV, but this album was my introduction to the band. "The Hook", "Dixie Drug Store", and "You Just Have to Be Crazy" were the stand out tracks for me on the album. I liked the album.

Keskimääräistä parempi rock-levy, mut ei kuitenkaan ihan nelosen arvoinen

Really liked Jupiter and Teardrop along with Wish You Well. The rest were a mixture of good and forgettable. Good vocals and guitar playing, appropriate drum, bass and keys too. Also has a nice acoustic feel to it which is pleasant.

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!

I think I might have liked this album a lot in the 90s, but I don't feel like it has aged well. It might be that there was a lot of music that was influenced by this album that mimicked the sound and style, but this album sounds a bit generic. It's fine, but it kinda just played through without making much of an impression on me 3/5

I was not familiar with this band. None of the songs really stand out in terms of if I would recommend them to anyone. Overall the album was alright. At times it got close to indie music and a little bit of country but that was rare.

I like this guys voice more than I thought I would. I went into it expecting it would be like super americana folky-western classic rock, but it's not. Maybe the name through me off. I thought this album was pretty good and I really went into it not being super enthused based off the album cover. I thought the songs were plenty catchy and the singer has some great vocal parts. He kind of sounds at times like Sonic Youth's singer (atleast in the first track). I wish the choruses were a little less repetitive though.

A pretty pleasant americana singer-songwriter album. Good musicianship, nothing to complain about from a technical point of view. But also shallow, hollow and ultimately, not interesting enough.

This felt somewhat similar to my last album but with a lil more rock instead of blues. Every song on this album seemed to start off pretty average and then turn into a banging powerhouse in the last half, Jupiter and teardrops + fuzzy being the best examples of this. Overall, I think this is either a really weak 4 or a really strong 3

Never listened to Buffalo before and my first impression is that I enjoy the guitars, melodies and vocals, but it's a fairly standard alt-indie-rock sound from the 90's. The songs don't stand out to me as anything above average or special and though it's a competent effort and it sounds fine, I don't understand how it made the 1001 list. Not essential, just saying...

Not going to lie, I couldn't get through this one though I did really enjoy Fuzzy and Jupiter and Teardrop. There was just nothing catchy enough to stick in my head for very long. It gave me some Gilmore Girls esque vibes though and the album would definitely work as part of a film soundtrack. At once point I thought they reminded me of Elliott Smith and in fact, an Elliott Smith track is included on the album radio on Spotify.

It's quite nice in places, but doesn't do enough to elevate itself beyond just pleasant middling listening overall. Easy 3.

A big, emotive style, that makes me think of the Waterboys with a dash of U2. The album grew on me as it progressed, but much of it was unmemorable. Fave Songs: Grace, Stars 'n' Stripes, The Hook, Fuzzy, America Snoring

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.
