Fuzzy is the debut album by American rock band Grant Lee Buffalo, released in 1993. Described as "the best album of the year hands down" by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe,[6] 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."[7]
