    [Fuzz is] eight glorious tracks of heavy, frantic and, yes, extremely fuzzy, proto-metal. [Nov 2013, p.71]

    FUZZ is commanding and infectious--this could be the project Segall was born for.

    Fuzz’s eight songs smartly clock in at a taut 37 minutes.

    Segall's hooks work well in this loud, loose-limbed environment. [No. 103, p.55]

    Fuzz consistently run the risk of noodling for a bit too long or pushing one idea a little too far. It's tricky to balance loud and quiet, and Fuzz are still finding their footing.

    In its best moments, Fuzz will have listeners forgetting Segall is part of the equation at all, the album's brooding heaviness more immediately moving than any of his distinctive sonic ticks.

    On this album, the influences are acknowledged and respected while still managing to sound original.

    UN Fuphking believable ! This is it. This is by far the best CD put out in 2013. This is not for the weak of heart, and if you have anyUN Fuphking believable ! This is it. This is by far the best CD put out in 2013. This is not for the weak of heart, and if you have any addictive tendencies, or addictive issues with your personal life, you might want to avoid this album. It's going to take over your entire self. What a rockin, roller coaster , mind bending, rock out adventure. Yah, give any other CD that definition, and I will buy it. Cuz you can't. This is one of the best CD's to throw on when you want some instant "fun" in your life. What a blast. Ty Segall and this group of rock enthusiasts found the ingredients for musical morphine, and this stuff is going to end up going through your ears and into your veins straight to your mind, where your mind will keep begging for more, and then you are "Addicted" to fuzz. What a ride. wow. Great stuff, and the best part is it's not from your dad's record collection. It can be from YOUR record collection, cuz it's new. Expand

As someone who likes Ty Segall, me liking this album come as no surprise. I wouldn't go as far as to say it's the best album of 2012, but it's good. Songs like "What's in My Head?", "Raise", and "Loose Suiters" stick out to me as being better than the rest. Defiantly check this album out. Expand
