Final Thoughts:

I kept being told by like minded people that since I’m a big fan of Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall that I had to check out Segall’s project Fuzz. I decided to finally check em out, having normal expectations, knowing I was more than likely going to like it, but not to the amount that I found myself actually loving this album. Fuzz is both epic and intimate, it’s a garage rock fans fantasy, lots of distortion, with not a huge tracklist (no watering down the album here). What surprised me most was how little singing is actually on the album, usually that makes me check out fast, but somehow Fuzz kept me interested through the entire play. Fuzz is unique from Ty Segall’s stuff, maybe because it sounds a little fuller and isn’t as worried about just jamming out when it feels right.
