Editorial Reviews

There's not much room in the world for a sub-par Spinal Tap ... unless it's in the anything-sells world of professional wrestling. And Fozzy, a mostly fictional band fronted by the very real wrestler Chris Jericho (in the persona of singer Mongoose McQueen), will likely find an audience only inside WWF arenas. Not that the band Fozzy, rounded out by the real rock/metal lineup of Stuck Mojo, with alter-egos such as KK La Flame and the Kidd, is bad. In fact, they're an adequate cover band serving up decent renditions of second-echelon songs from top-drawer metal bands. Tunes by the Scorpions, Dio, Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, and Krokus are Fozzy-ized, topped with Jericho/McQueen's slightly irritating, high, pop-leaning metal vocals. Like Spinal Tap, the band is an elaborate ruse with an extensive fake history, only sans the humor. Yes, old-school metal is as over the top as wrestling. And yes, the Jericho association might sell albums. But on their own merit, Fozzy will likely amuse only rabid wrestling fans. --Katherine Turman

4.0 out of 5 stars A re-hashed Spinal Tap "fake band", but so what? November 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, yeah. Fozzy is the combination of the real group, "Stuck Mojo" and WWF wrestling superstar, Chris Jericho. The last time I heard anything about Stuck Mojo was when Chris Jericho wrestled for WCW. But as this new "fake band" with a pretty humorous back-story takes the stage with some classic heavy metal songs from the likes of Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Dio, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Ozzy, etc. I think they pull it off quite well, actually.
As a heavy metal listener since the late 80's, but with a collection that goes back to the 70's, I personally get off with hearing old songs in a new "thicker" sound. With Iron Maiden's sub-classic song, "The Prisoner" from "Number of the Beast", I relished in the memories of the emotion from the original. "I'm not a prisoner...I'm a free man.." says it all.
As I first ploped in my cassete, I'm like, "eh", but as I continued to listen to it and the more familiar songs came up, I'm like, "Hey I kinda like this." I could just see Ozzy joining them on "Over the Mountain" during an OzzFest concert.
The fake back story of them being stuck in Japan for 20 years is pretty hilarious. Hell, they were only around ~10 years old in 1980. Hell, I'm as old as "The Rock" right now. That puts Dwayne Johnson aka "The Rock", at about 8 years old in 1980.
The story would have been more believable if they would have said 10 years (in Japan), but then they coouldn't have covered any 80's metal songs of which these are all of.
The only qualm I have with the album, IS Jericho's vocals. Although he did try to emmulate the original artists' vocals, he doesn't have the range necessary to pull it off. This is the reason for 4 stars. But overall, I think this album will grow on ya.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music... Great songs... January 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Now we all know that this is a gimmick from the WWF about a fake band
headed by none other than their superstar, Chris Jericho. We all know
that, but do we really want to hear more about that this has been done
and that's not how you're supposed to do things. Actually now. This is
a music CD, so why not assess the music itself and leave their history
begind shall we?
OK. Any person listening to rock has heard these
somgs in his/her life. WE know that they are good or else they would
have not been chosen to be covered here by Fozzy. Does the band cover
the songs right? The answer is very very right... The music is so well
produced, so well compact that it's just pleasurable to listen to the
music itself. This is a very solid offerring from the players
themselves. They're excellent musicians and they have been playing as
members of Stuck Mojo for some time now. But is the vocalist any good?
Can Chris/Mongoose actually sing? Well yes, he definitely can, to the
surprise and astonishment of all else who think otherwise. We all know
that Chris is a very good critic for heavy metal music, and now we
know that he's a good singer too. His voice truly transcends the song
and makes you believe that they were actually written for him in
mind.
If you never heard any of these songs ever in their original
form, then it really won't hurt to listen to them first here. Fozzy
really bring the magic that made those other songs excellent, even for
a first time listener. You listen to the songs as an individual entity
and try not to compare it with the originals and even if you can't
help it and you actually do, then you'd be surprised that these same
songs are equally as good and truly worth it...

4.0 out of 5 stars Fozzy is in the early Spinal Tap stage... August 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
For those of you who probably read my review of Fozzy's "All That Remains," I had become interested in the band because of Chris Jericho being the vocalist, and being a "Jerichoholic" myself (although I refuse to watch WWE anymore), I wanted to check this band out. I had heard "Happenstance" before the other two, and bought "All That Remains" when it came out. Not long after that was when I purchased their debut album from 2000, and here is where the spoof begins. By spoof, I mean that the band (which is also partially the rap-metal band Stuck Mojo) originally started out as. Much like Spinal Tap, the story of Fozzy goes that they spent the last 20 years in Japan being megastars and once they return to America, they realize that many famous artists have ripped off their songs! Naturally, this isn't to be taken seriously, just a funny concept with which to shell out some cover songs and two of their own.

The album kicks off with their cover of Dio's Stand Up and Shout, an awesome anthemic rocker from one of Metal's greatest bands. One of their best covers by far. They also do outstanding covers of Krokus' Eat the Rich (with some particularly good vocals from Chris Jericho here), Ozzy's Over the Mountain, and Twisted Sister's Stay Hungry. Their most perfect cover, I think, is their version of Motley Crue's Live Wire, with everyone in fine form (they even got the solos right here). The Scorpions cover Blackout is not that great, but decent overall. The only ones I was disappointed with were their covers of Iron Maiden's The Prisoner (although it had a funny intro making fun of the original show) and Judas Priest's Riding on the Wind, which sounded really lame to me. The original song was rich and heavy; their cover sounds static and sparse.
