Fuzzy's second album, Electric Juices, is as light as air. It's pleasant girl pop that falls somewhere between the sweetness of Velocity Girl's Simpatico and the grunge pop of Veruca Salt's American Thighs. Repeated listens fail to elicit significant changes in mood or structure from one song to the next, and the monotony can get a bit frustrating. But it would be hard for this group of songs to inspire a strong reaction -- positive or negative. "Someday" and "Christmas" are the only tracks that have the ambition to be more than just sunny mid-tempo rockers, but their impact is reduced by the sedated state of mindless comfort listeners are placed into over the course of the first nine songs. Electric Juices also includes, for reasons unknown, a cover of the Beach Boys' "Girl Don't Tell Me."
