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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

To start off, I am a major Queen fan. Nobody will ever reach the level that Freddie Mercury had at singing and song-writing. With that said, I think Foxy Shazam is the 'Queen' of their generation in the respect that they have the same style and glam. With no exaggeration, their single on this album, 'I Like It', is the child of a love affair between Queen and Led Zeppelin. The subtle details in that song combine the hard rock sound of a repeated simple guitar riff of Led Zeppelin and vocal style of Queen's chorus style.
Any classic rock fan [that finds most modern music to be underwhelming] will be able to appreciate their songs. While everybody listens to Katy Perry and Justin Beiber nowadays, Foxy is the diamond in the rough for modern music. This is their fourth album and each one is better than the last (although I haven't been able to buy their first album because they produced it themselves). If you don't have their 2nd and 3rd albums, Introducing and Foxy Shazam [Explicit], you should DEFINITELY buy them. Listening to the evolution of their sound is inspiring.
