4.0 out of 5 stars Bentley Rhythem Ace but simpler and tighter. 13 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
Where BRA have their stand out tracks, Fuzz has a whole album of them. Nothing stands out as particularly anthemic on Far In rather the whole album is like music piece in it's own right.
The remix album is where it really comes into it's own though. It could be said that Fuzz doesn't put enough depth into his tracks. This is all sorted out with bands like Bowser and All Seeing Eye at the helm. All in all, this is one of the best remix albums around. Simply because it isn't just some isolated good tracks, but an entire disc that works well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent electronic/dance album 4 April 2001
By rsilva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Fuzz Townshend's first solo album, 'Far In' proves that Fuzz is both a creative and cultured song writer and performer. With samples that range from happy, jingle-esque keyboard melodies to deep, full bass lines, Fuzz's newest release is a collection of many different styles: electronic, dance, rock, hip hop, surf rock. Every tune on this record, with simple riffs and beats, produces the same effect: tunes that sound just right and make you feel good.
Some suggested tracks:
'Sister Brother' is a hard pounding, get-up-and-get-down song that gets your adrenaline pumping. Above all else the message in this song, although cliche to some, really reaches out to the listener and hits home.
'Smash It' can best be described as this: get in a convertible and just cruise the longest stretch of desert highway on the most beautiful day of the year. Although an instrumental, the message i receive from it is to let go of your worries for a time and just enjoy the present moment.
'Summertime' starts right up with a very mellow groove that continues till the end of the piece. In a way the song is almost reminiscent of old-school hip hop tunes that, although were incredibly simple, had just a great rhythm going.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uncomplicated fun and gettin' down party music.. 25 Oct 2001
By Christopher Betche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are pros and cons on buying something on one review. Sometimes you'll get total (...), and sometimes you get a product that is very enjoyable. I bought Far In on faith from a review in a music mag. It's not as good as the article claimed, but it's a fun ride nevertheless. Fuzz Townshend sets out to make a party album, and for the most part, he succeeds. At Auntie Tom's is trumpet-laden bouncy old school beats. Original Boom is reggae flavored slow bounce. I Have Seen the Light is straight forward dancey big beat. Sister Brother has some really annoying vocals, and a beat that doesn't save the song. Smash It, the album's highlight, has a good chorus sample, rising and falling rhythm, and some funky synthwork that gets you up and moving. Bus slows down for a little trippy big beat action. Riviera seems out of place, but evokes an almost Spanish hip-hop flavor. Summertime is minimal and moody, but good background music. Boogie Too has a great primitive synthesizer beat and a really annoying sample; you'll either love it or hate it. Get Yerself thumps just enough to make up for some weak lyrics. Drop It sounds like Fatboy Slim at his worst: all annoying beat and no catchy hook. My Way is spooky and poorly executed. Outside Wide is barely filler. Far In has some interesting guitar distortion into breakbeats, but not much else. Test Card is a calming, guitar-beat track that works as a conclusion. So to sum up, the highlights are At Auntie Tom's, Smash It, and Bus. The album as a whole is straightforward and simple, and shows Townshend's potential to make a really good album next time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Masterwork of the Big Beat Era 25 Nov 2011
By George McBundy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the kind of incredibly happy knob-twiddling that unites the Isles and the K-Tel America in a pastiche of funky drumming and guitar hooks that steals the crown for Big Beat. Of course a couple misses might annoy the embittered anti-fun crowd, but try to not to enjoy the bountiful headspace of exercising or commuting or turning up the volume to Stand In, Test Ban - somewhere in the grands strand of time, there will always be happy hour of Fuzz Townshend available to accompany the swinging girls.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great 20 May 2003
By John L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I heard about Fuzz Townshend after buying Bentley Rhythm Ace (which I recommend if you like this). I didn't know what to expect...but I did hear At Auntie Tom's before buying it.
This CD will surprizingly bring you in. It has addictive tracks that are fun and crazy, but will catch you attention just as much as any mainstream artist. Many songs sound like they could have been lifted from a video game soundtrack, but they are very fun and danceable.
With an open mind, a good mood, and a relaxed state, you'll grow to love this disc. Pure wacky and fun , but very good music.
4.0 out of 5 stars Uncompromised Electronic Dance 30 Aug 2002
By Roger I. Camara Lemarroy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In "Far In," a melange of electronic music and brittish island reggae come together to form a notoriously cool sounding album. Some songs could be perfect for a party, others for a movie, but almost all of them perfect for fun.
This cd sounds like "Wink meets a caribbean brass band in the midst of an england house party whlist a raggae singer performs."
One of the best tracks in the album is "At Aunti Tom's." Its fun, catchy and makes you want to shake it all night long.
At time this cd can get rather tedious, or a bit obnoxious if you are in the wrong mood, but if what you are looking for is a good time, and you are a listener of electronic, then this cd is for you. But be warned, heavy reggae influence can get vocals sounding a little similar most times. Arrangement wise, and in composition, i must say Townshend is a very talented artist.
All in all, this is a good cd... and very FUN!
