"I first heard Fuxa from bits and peices of this one-man band's work sprinkled throughout various releases, from 7"s and b-sides to his brilliant "Venoy" EP released as part of Darla Records' Bliss Out series a couple of years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed them all.Because of this it came as a shock when I bought "Organized". Seemingly the result of a "lo-fi" effort gone awry, the music is repedetive, unpolished, uninteresting and contains none of the intelligent and melodic catches I had become accustomed to with this guy. The droning, reverberated synth organ is repeated practically throughout each tune, and the percussion is at best weak and futile. in fact, the songs on this album bear a striking resemblance to those I made on my Casio keyboard when I was 10.The only reason this album deserves two stars is because some versions of the album include a bonus track titled "Photon", which is quite a lovely song - a ray of sunlight on an otherwise cloudy day.Want to hear what Fuxa at his best? Try "Venoy" or one of the 7" singles (namely "City & Metro" with Bright), "Organized" is a far cry from an enjoyable journey into space rock."

"This lush albulm is perfect for ecstatic excavations, or a bed room chill out. It's highly atmospheric sounds of lo-fi synth, moogs, and slow steady drums create a sound that is unique to Fuxa. "At your leisure" contains a loping, infectious melody that sticks in my head everytime I hear it- But, make no mistake this isn't a pop experience. If you like the sounds of Stereolab, but want something more mellow and ethereal, slightly more lo-fi, and minus the french.... Check it out! (this albulm is very hard to find in my experience)"
