Buzz, who revolutionized K-pop in 2003 with their heart wrenching rock-ballads returns this time around as a two-member band. Consisting of guitarist Yoon Woo Hyun and new vocalist Nayu, the band comes before fans with a ten-track special album with songs sung by both the former and current vocalist of Buzz.
The album starts off with a heart wrenching, emotional title track, “Don’t Like Women.” This rock-ballad sounds a lot like their previous songs which is no surprise because the composer of this song, Ko Suk Young is responsible for many of Buzz’s past hits such as “Coward” and “Trip to Leave Me.” Sang Sang Band’s Venny who lends her unique vocals, adds a nice finishing touch to the song.
“Buzzing Rock” is another memorable rock number that showcases Nayu’s strong, husky vocals. This energetic number with electrifying guitar sounds will definitely take listeners on an emotional ride. The newly revamped Buzz also remakes three of the band’s hit songs: “Don’t Like Men,” “Coward,” and “Trip to Leave Me.” Nayu is able to show yet another side of these songs by adding his own color to them.
Original Buzz fans are also in luck because former vocalist, Min Kyung Hoon takes part in this album with two new songs. “Time Love Stopped” is a rock ballad that starts off with peaceful beautiful piano arrangements, only to transition to emotional guitar sounds and vocals. “Farewell Collector” on the other hand is a rock number with country elements. The usage of both acoustic and electric guitars make this a noteworthy song.
Fans of the band and rock-ballads are definitely in for a treat with Buzz’s special album, “Fuzz Buzz.” The variety of songs (remakes, songs from both vocalists) makes this a must buy for both old and new Buzz fans.
