Many seemingly insignificant occurrences brought the individuals in The Great Fuss together. The back of an RCMP truck in remote northern community, a live auction in Ontario, and a (reluctant) acceptance of bandannas all factored into the story of how The Great Fuss was assembled. You're encouraged to put the pieces together how you wish, much like the lyrical content of their eponymous release. The Great Fuss recorded and produced their album in songwriter Pete's home studio, with Pete also wielding the production controls. The result is an album of raucous gems and singable melodies. The band has received numerous accolades for this new release. The album received a "Top Album" designation from Divide and Conquer Music, scoring a 4.2/5. Reviewer Rebecca Rothschild remarked: "This is the kind of rock band I’ve been waiting to hear... This is raunchy feel good rock that makes me wanna spaz out on the dance floor. Their self-titled album The Great Fuss wooed me from the first track to the last. It’s that damn good." The album was also included in SaskMusic's top albums list and three of the songs from the album were included as top and semi-finalists in the Canadian Songwriting Competition. The Great Fuss is now supporting their release with a series of shows throughout the prairies.
