Biography

Hello, my name is Eric Nally and I am the singer and founding member of this rabble-rousing pack of **** they call Foxy Shazam. Our other five members are (in alphabetical order): Daisy (bass) Aaron McVeigh (drums), Alex Nauth (horns) Loren Turner (guitar) and Sky White (piano). I love them but before I get into their story, I would like to spend a little time on myself: I am twenty-four ... Read more in Amazon's Foxy Shazam Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the fourth album from the Cincinnati outfit. Foxy Shazam is made up of six individuals. Eric Nally (vocals), Daisy (bass), Aaron McVeigh (drums), Alex Nauth (horns), Loren Turner (guitar), and Sky White (piano). The band's name came from a saying in high school meaning "cool shoes." Eric Nally states that going to an all-black school influenced his soulful singing and has added flare to the band's overall style. Foxy Shazam has worked with critically acclaimed producer John Feldman who has worked with Neon Trees, Plain White T's, and Panic! At the Disco.

Anyways, Buy this, you will love it!

It's great (every song on this album is great), but of everything, it feels the most like filler.

I bought this album the day it came out and have been listening to it almost non-stop since.

The all mighty Foxy Shazam have returned! A more gracious deity of rock, you'll be hard pressed to find.

I have been following Foxy Shazam since Flamingo Trigger, and have loved every single advancement. Some people don't like their progression, which I understand. They have changed quite a bit. Starting out as a kind of, experimental hardcore noise rock basement band, then becoming a bellowing and talented force of rock and roll. Every album has progressed: Introducing still embraced some of Eric's screaming, but also example some fantastic soulful tracks and choruses. With their third album, simply titled "Foxy Shazam", they let go of their yelling and noise experimentation, to focus on becoming true masters of sound, soul, theatrics and rock and roll. Still extremely over the top and tighter with each track, comes their fourth album: The Church of Rock and Roll.

The album is, unlike their last, under produced. Although "Foxy Shazam" was a masterpiece, some people weren't too fond of the production and studio feel producer John Feldmann granted the album. With CORAR, they teamed up with Justin Hawkins of The Darkness fame, and turned the album into a loud, proud, face value rock album.

CORAR has much of an 70s and 80s feel to it than their previous endeavors. Upon buying this album, ready yourself for something much different than all their other work. Although just as anthem based as their last, they have made a conscious effort to change their sound. I think they did magnificent. It sounds raw, it sounds pure, and it sounds phenomenal. Thanks again Foxy, for giving me another bundle of amazing rock and roll. Can't wait to hang out with you guys again at your next show!

I feel like I'm in a minority among "true" Foxy Shazam fans (whatever that's supposed to mean or who even determines that), but I like this album and their self titled one about equally. This album is a departure from their previous sound but I think it's a good change. It's definitely not as "unique" as their previous sound on their self titled album (which really isn't as unique as everyone makes it out to be, sounds like 80's pop to me). But whatever, I like this album and bought it on vinyl hoping maybe the band will get more money from that than a CD or digital download. I enjoy it and I don't care about preconceived hipster notions about what's cool and what's not. I like it, and that's what matters.

Also, I've had some friends complain that Foxy Shazam has "has gone mainstream" or "sold out". I tell ordinary radio listening people I listen to Foxy Shazam and they have no clue who I'm talking about. Calm down.

This album will change your life in the best ways. In every one of the best ways. Make a list of the best ways anything could change your life, buy this album, hit "play" and grab a pen because you're about to check off everything on that list, man. If you know Foxy Shazam, what are you even doing reading this just buy the album already. If you don't know Foxy Shazam, let me try to give you the Cliffnotes on the glammest funkmasters since Parliament's tour bus ran over David Bowie and absorbed his soul. If Freddie Mercury spontaneously burst out of his grave wearing the exact same clothes and smoking eight cigarettes, once he had wandered around a little and had sex way too many times for a zombie, he would calmly return to his grave and lay back down in peace, knowing that Foxy Shazam carried his spirit in a way no zombie ever could.
You will love this album. But if you don't, it won't matter, because a pair of black leather pants will fly out of nowhere and wrap around your neck and kill you.

First, thank you, Amazon, for the $5 dowload deals. They allow me to acquire new music that may not otherwise. I check these deals religiously. And speaking of religion..........I am in LOVE with The Church of Rock and Roll! Admittedly, I am a sucker for a good melody and, as an 80s teen, I was raised on big rock anthems. With that in mind, this album is the answer to my prayers! Each song contains an infectous melody and soaring choruses. The sound is BIG and the album is best played loud! I'm certain that this will translate to an amazing live show, and I can't wait to find one!

I just found out about this band about a week ago, but they have shot to the top of my favorites list. I was impressed enough with this particular cd to purchase tickets to an upcoming concert. This is great music to take running, which I have already done twice, it's mostly upbeat and will occasionally make you laugh.

I became a huge Foxy fan after discovering their last album, self-titled Foxy Shazam. I loved every song on that album and wondered how a follow up album would compare. I bought this album the day it came out and have been listening to it almost non-stop since. I won't go through song by song, but almost every song makes you want to get up and move. It is great workout music. My only complaint is that Freedom is the last song on the album. It's a great song but I wish they had ended with something a little more up beat. Overall a great album and a must-have if you are looking for some fresh music, especially to get you excited for summer. The only thing better than this album is seeing Foxy Shazam play live. They are absolutely the most energetic, non-stop, entertaining band I have ever seen play live! Check out this album, you will not be disappointed!
