Every once in a blue moon, I hear fuzz used in a song to great effect. I'm especially drawn to the tones I hear from Rabea Massad's work with Toska, but even then, he manages to get a surprisingly clear, hi-fi sound out of them... I can't stand them. I'm more of a crunch/overdrive guy, but then again, I'm a rhythm player. I think I might like it more if I played lead and wanted some of those long, singing fuzz lines.
