Thanx in advance

'fluffy' is a term that can be used very loosely to indicate that something is ..... nice, happy, undertanding, postive .....

Fluffy when used to describe music would mean that it is happy, uplifting - smile inducing music !!

So if someone is happy and positive and loving and understanding etc ... you could say that they were 'fluffy' !! :P


Like fluffy little bears or fluffy kittens ......

It is quite the opposite of 'spikey' ......

i think fluffy means something near as syruppy if you better see for most of people when reviewing music.

Nevertheless i personnally used it with a positive meaning & not a pejorative music for kids underlying, with the idea of the track Little fluffy Clouds:something sweet, deep & peacefull.

I don't think words are needed. Fluffy music sounds like that cat looks. :)

a friend of mine who's into hard stomping minimal said, "hmm, very fluffy stuff" when I played Logic Bomb - Datalinks.. :)
Fluffy isn't necessarily bad, I'd say contrary.. according to my taste. I like fluff :ph34r:

Fluffy != Cheesy

I agree fluffy is different than cheesy...I know fluff when I hear it, I know cheese when I hear it. I know cheese bothers me far more than fluff does....but can't quite decide what the difference between the two is...
