    [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.

    Mind Blowing. There is not too much more to say. If you like progressive rock it is a must. What's in your head? Is one of my favourite songs of all time. So powerfull, chek it out! Expand

    I've had this LP for a while and I have to say, very nice album here. 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
