Fuzzy Logic

Album Summary

Fuzzy Logic is the debut album by the Welsh rock band Super Furry Animals. Recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, and released on the Creation label in May 1996, it was positively received by critics, who felt it was an eclectic if inconsistent mix of psychedelic music and glam rock, and was included in Q Magazine's list of recordings of the year. It has retained a modest respect among some critics; it was listed in Q's "Best British Albums Ever" in July 2004, and is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. It contains two top 20 hits in "If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You" and "Something 4 the Weekend"; it also contains the singles "God! Show Me Magic" and "Hometown Unicorn". It reached number 23 in the UK Albums Chart on release. In 2013, NME ranked it at number 245 in its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Super Furry Animals are eclectic, to say the least. Fusing together pop melodies, psychedelia, and art rock with an impish, punky fury, the band cover more ground on their debut album, Fuzzy Logic, than most indie bands do in their entire career. However, the album works better as a series of moments than as a collection, mainly due to their overreaching ambition. Each song floats by on irresistible, catchy vocal harmonies, while the music alternates between glitzy overdriven guitars and sighing, sweeping keyboard, guitar, and string backdrops. Over these lush sonic beds, lead vocalist Gruff sings lyrics that are either mystical, nonsensical, or bizarrely funny -- none of the songs make much literal sense, but that doesn't quite matter when the music is as free-spirited as this. The songs may start conventionally, but they'll be undercut by wild synthesizers and careening guitar solos, or off-kilter vocal melodies. Taken as individual moments -- as the singles "God! Show Me Magic" (relatively straight-ahead punk-pop), "Hometown Unicorn" (gorgeous psychedelia), and "Something 4 the Weekend" (which finds the middle ground between the first two singles) prove -- the music of Super Furry Animals is quite intoxicating, but when assembled together, they don't sustain momentum. However, the individual pleasures of each song become more apparent with each listen and Fuzzy Logic suggests that the group could blossom into something quite distinctive and utterly unique within a few albums.

Super Furry Animals s'est lancé un défi des plus surpenants : constituer un album dont l'objet serait une compilation de cris d'animaux. Le morceau Frisbee lance les hostilités avec une chorale de macaques en colère. Mais le groupe ne s'arrête pas là; les animaux de la jungle sont vite remplacés par ceux de la savane, puis ceux de la ferme. Le projet se clôt sur un éternuement de lièvre et laisse derrière lui des oreilles enchantées par un spectacle auditif hors du commun.

What is this supposed to be? Some sort of 90s dissonant, psychedelic alt-rock that can't decide if it wants to be modern or old-school (for it's time, respectively). In any case it's not good and I was relieved when it was over.

There's something very off-putting about the lead vocals, and maybe the production too. Why is it... raspy? Or like there's too much static in the mic? The problem with this album, for me, is that the melodic structure of many of the songs is quite basic so the songs really have to depend on expressive elements, like instrumental flairs and vocal style. And expressively this just doesn't do it for me.

😐 All the worst of British pop in one album. I became angrier with each subsequent song. These boys decided the worst album of the 70s hadn't been released yet so they dropped it themselves in 1993. Is this a satire album? If so, why is it so inane? Is that the joke? Absurd.

Great album from a great band. A rock album at heart, but with elements of pop, psychedelic, glam, synth etc. all seamlessly woven through. Excellent songs with wonderful melodies, counter melodies, harmonies, and instrumentation. And solid production - all the instruments sound great and have well defined spaces within the mix. A refreshing alternative to the brit pop of the time, and still sounds good today.

Loved and was pleasantly surprised by the vast majority of it, I even vaguely recognized some of the hits. A pretty unique sounding 90s neo-psychedelic album with all kinds of diverse styles and vibes, yet maintained a very nice continuous thematic and musical flow. Idk much about this band, but going with my gut, 5 stars.

This album has been a wonderful surprise! I did not have this band on my radar - maybe I’d heard the name some years ago - but it caught me from the very dirt minute. It is the type of psych I like, melodic, unpretentious, a little naive. I loved the beat, textures, chords and song structures; the voice is a perfect fit too. So 90s, so alive. I read somebody’s comment that said that the way how this album ends is the way how a joyful funeral would end , I happen to agree!

Debut sólido. Desde la neo psicodelia, pasando por el Power Pop, el Indie Rock e incluso tintes de Britpop, el debut de los Super Furry Animals encapsula buena parte de los sonidos clásicos noventeros. No será el álbum más aclamado de la banda, pero indudablemente es un sólido trabajo lleno de canciones directas y efectivas. Un punto débil yace en la interpretación vocal, la cual posee influencias muy identificables al punto en que se siente poco propositiva a momentos. Sin embargo, hay que tener en cuenta que es un problema recurrente más aun cuando de álbumes debut se trata. Para mí un sólido 7/10

Fuzzy Logic is the debut album by the Welsh rock band Super Furry Animals. The album cover is a montage of photos of Welsh-born drug smuggler Howard Marks, the subject of the song "Hangin' with Howard Marks". Marks visited Rockfield during the making of the album at the band's request. I had no expectations for this album, but its actually really good! I only favorited a few songs, but could have done quite a few of them. Gathering moss, bad behavior, mario man, several of the non-singles were really catchy.

What would happen if a group of newly signed Welsh lads were let loose in a sonic sweet shop with nothing but some drugs and "A History of Psychedelic Pop and Glam Rock"? Probably something like this. That may appear dismissive, but in fact I had great fun with this album and have been revisiting it since first listen. There's a lot to explore: it's packed to the rafters with vocal effects, varied instrumentation and most importantly, catchy hooks. It zips by with the free-wheeling confidence of a new band revelling in its own ray of light. "God! Show Me Magic" is a few hand-claps short of being a punk-glam standard, "Hometown Unicorn" has a gorgeous singalong chorus, and "Something 4 the Weekend", "Bad Behaviour" and "For Now and Ever" veer just on the right side of being obnoxious. It's all very silly pastiche and doesn't shy away from its influences, but blimey, it's good fun.

So much better than I remember. Lots of killer pop/rock songs that I didn't appreciate as a metal/goth kids in the 90s. My only issue is that it seems to bounce around the place and for me doesn't feel tied together, but still hugely enjoyable.

I enjoy the Super Furry Animals. I could probably have this on all day long with no problems, and enjoy it all the way though. It's not gonna be one of my top favourite albums as it hasn't really got that oomph that I need to really get it there. Falls somewhere between a 3 and a 4 for me, but as I can really see myself listening to this on repeat and there's not a single song that I dislike I'll give it a 4.

The first two songs feature hamsters. The band is called Super Furry Animals. I’m interested… This album has a real 70s vibe that I found quite fun. Some good rock with a lot of interesting bits thrown in. Flute and trombone solo? Check. There are little delights to be found all over this musical funhouse. Really enjoyed it! I love how the ending ends with a “we’ll be together” anthem. A wonderfully corny conclusion that appeals greatly to me! Favorite tracks: God! Show Me Magic, Fuzzy Birds, Something 4 The Weekend, Gathering Moss, For Now and Ever

It seems like these guys make music because it's fun. I like it. Musically at least it's light and poppy --- I didn't have a chance to dig deep into the lyrics so maybe they're talking about serious stuff but I was having a good time. Even Long Gone, which is melancholy, if not outright sad, isn't overly earnest or dramatic, just serious enough. Nice.

One of the hippy guys that I worked with at Pizza Planet in Mt. Pleasant loved this band. I was always happy he was playing this instead of Phish. But that alone isn't enough to put it on this list...haha. I liked this record. Fuzzed out guitars and great vocal harmonies. What's not to love? I like that the record starts screaming out of the gates. No warm ups here like Supertramp. Which just proves there are a number of ways to effectively start a record. This is another record from the late 90s that I really wish I would have heard at the time. I was searching for something interesting at that point. Beyond the power chords of Nirvana, Bush, and Silverchair. But not so heavy like most main-stream rock at the time. When Weezer shit the bed after Pinkerton (I've since realized there are moments after that, but they aren't the lighting-in-a-bottle that the first two records were), I was really only left with Superdrag. Whereas the 'drag brought American Power Pop influences to my impressionable mind, Super Furry Animals would have brought in the UK pop sensibilities into the mix. There is a lot of Bowie and Eno-esque stuff happening here. And I love that. FAWNN played a show with Gruff Rhys in Pontiac once. He was a very nice dude and it was fun talking to someone from Wales about American Whiskey. He loved it. And weed.

That's what I like about indie rock. It's so adventurous and pure. Fuzzy Logic in particular sounds like a pastiche sometimes. I caught stuff from '70s rock to the britpop sounds of the '90s. But it didn't come out as unoriginal nor uninteresting. In fact, it's the most adventurous and fun indie rock album that I heard for a while. It can be messy and all over the place, but it's great rock nonetheless.

I like this a lot when it was first released and think it was in my top ten foe year. Revisiting it for this exercise, I find it wears it influences on its sleeves a bit too much. As a result the album comes off as a singles collection with some very good filler. That, in itself, is retro, evoking the 60s. The catchy hooks of the individual tunes, and harmonies push this to a four star review.

Un disco entretenido, con sus momentos, pero pues no sé, no se me hace genial dentro de lo que hacen. Disfruté sobre todo la parte de en medio, es decir, "Gathering Moss", "If You Don't Want Me to Destroy You", "Bad Behaviour" y "Mario Man". Me quedo con alguna de esas canciones.

A fairly eclectic mix. They have a knack for writing catchy songs with sing-a-long choruses. The singles (that didn’t do well) were the best ones, IMO. They were channeling Mott the Hoople, on Something 4 the Weekend, I thought. I’m also catching a bit of Aladdinsane-era Bowie &T-rex but with a muddier production and raunchy guitar. Nice strings on If You Don’t Want Me to Destroy You. Their furture releases were more radio-friendly, but from what I've heard, I prefer this album.

i'm back on that half star thing. Definitely liked it and liked it more than a 3, but not quite enough to tip over to 4. More rock than the multitude of 70s and mild rock we've had lately which was a nice change.

I know just a few of their songs. Enjoying this quite a bit. Has an XTC feel, with a big Beatles influence. Songwriting is strong. Feels like 3.5 even a 3.75 🌟

I can't really put the textures and feelings of this album into words. It's a psychedelic trip meets fabulous glam rock to create a genre bending punk rock album. All the way through, the guitar tones give you a fantastic grittiness that never let you forget what kind of force this band is, but you get some sweetness with beautiful melodies accompanied by robotic synth and drum samples. Gruff Rhys has an unconventional voice for a lead singer, but that just makes the songs on here all the more unique. No two songs sound the same, and the journey that the tracklist puts you on will make you see how this is classified in the category of "art rock." Favorite Song: Frisbee Least Favorite: Bad Behaviour

The album sounds something like a mutation of Mott The Hoople paired with the Beatles. The songs are a bit trashy and arranged in the cheesiest way (including a trumpet fanfare and a flute march). (6/10) Favourite Track: Something 4 The Weekend

Aikanaan varmasti muodikasta brittirockin aallonharjalla surffailua. Bändi on itselleni tuttu lähinnä 2000-luvun vähän taiteellisemmasta tuotannosta. Tämän levyn suht suora brittirokki pääsi jopa positiivisesti yllättämään. Jotain samaa löytyy Bluriin sekä laulajan äänen että kappaleiden "leikkisyyden" takia. Tasalaatuinen levy jossa yksikään kappale ei erotu kauhean hyvässä eikä huonossa. Tasalaatuisuus valitettavasti myös toisinaan tuntuu tylsältä ja tasapaksulta. Kolmosen arvoinen iloinen brittirockpläjäys kuitenkin.

SFA ollut ikuisuuden kuuntelulistalla, joten kiitos generaattori. Mukavan melodista, emotionaalista ja monipuolista sekä hyviä soundeja. Tosin ehkä joku herkkyys tai suunta uupui, niin ei noussut sen huikeammaksi kokonaisuudeksi. Mutta vahva hyvä.

Alko lupaavasti, mutta lopulta ei ollut kovin mieleenpainuva, perus ysärirockia, välillä vähän jännemmillä saundeilla. Vaikuttaa vähän taas näiltä "brittikriitikot tykkäsivät" levyiltä.

They were trying very hard to make the songs sound interesting on this album. It was a good effort that brought back memories from the mid 90s, but none of the songs really gelled with me, so in the end the album left me underwhelmed.

Well, I was not familiar with the group or album, but they have a familiar style...it's rock-ish but with up-beat and catchy melodies sprinkled in...kinda fun. I think that had I heard this album when originally released, then I would have been more of a fan. That is when I discovered some other artists of this ilk that I loved and still do. Maybe I am just past adopting more of this style in my love-library. It was fine, just not something that I want to hold on to.

The first half sounded like the soundtrack to an obscure late 90s Paul Rudd romcom. Then it just got sorta boring. I guess I don't understand the charm or significance of this album nor did I find it particularly enjoyable. Wasn't bad just wasn't interesting to me.

C'est pas mauvais. Quand c'est plus rock, on est dans du Weezer de cette époque, mais moins accrocheur. Quand c'est plus psychédélique et calme, les arrangements sont intéressants. Et dans les pièces plus smooth comme l'intro de Mario Man ou Gathering Moss, la voix est mixée comme dans bien des pièces de Damon Albarn (dans Gorillaz et surtout The Good, The Bad and The Queen pour la pièce Gathering Moss). La pièce Long Gone me fait beaucoup penser à The Dears à cause du ton de voix et des arrangements. Bref, pas mauvais, mais pas mémorable. Sûrement que j'y retournerai et si j'avais une playlist rock des années 90 à faire, j'irais sûrement y piger une pièce ou deux pour avoir un peu plus de variété.

It took a couple of listens to get intrigued but after that threshold I found an alright album. It's pretty noisy but has clear melodies. I'm glad I gave it another chance otherwise it would've remained as a bad image. Still not a favourite of mine and only really liked a few songs, but have learned to appreciate it more. Something 4 the Weekend was the best song on here. I like how Super Furry Animals have Howard Marks, a famous drug smuggler from their country of Wales not only on their album cover, but referenced in one of their songs too. Not one of the best songs on the album but it's pretty cool regardless.

Nierówny album. Niektóre kawałki ze smyczkami bardzo mi się podobały, niektóre miały dziwny mix i bardzo nużyły, a wręcz były nieprzyjemne. W sumie jak na popo-coś, za mało są chwytliwi. Uczciwa trójeczka.

Powinni bardziej się skupić na cheezy-rock-popie bo te kawałki brzmią dużo lepiej jak "something 4 the weekend"".

A strong start, some good tracks, but a couple overstay their welcome...however, loved, loved Something 4 the weekend, although it reminds me of something I can't put my finger on...I want to say Polyphonic Spree's Light and Day, which came 8 year later so maybe they heard this track.

From Wikipedia: "James Delingpole in a January 1997 review in The Daily Telegraph wrote the band had produced a 'strange mix of Bowie-esque glam rock, school-of-Syd-Barrett psychedelia and DIY kitsch'". I could not have said it better. This band is so distinctly out of time for 1996, it's hard to praise it for doing anything particularly daring. For what it's worth, Fuzzy Logic is certainly a successful blend of these influences. I just feel they do little to expand on them in a way that matters. It's a good sound, but nothing to write home about. Is this the best 90's act that Wales has to offer? I hope not.

This album was an attempt at reinventing late 60s/early 70s rock and while it didn’t fail miserably it wasn’t great. I thought the first 3ish songs were enjoyable and then it lost me a bit.

3.6 - I was deep into Britpop back in the late-90s but these guys didn't get much airplay in the States so they weren't on my radar. To me this record sounds like a more cooky, less grandiose version of "The Bends."

Weird how familiar that album cover is considering I've never listened to it. I thought maybe I'd never listened to it because I didn't like them but I guess it was more just the restrictive price of cds and means of music sharing in 1996. And the fact that I wasn't indie enough. No beef with sfa.
