The Church of Rock and Roll

The Church of Rock and Roll by Foxy Shazam
Released: Jan 2012
Label: Capitol Records
The Church of Rock and Roll is yet another trip through retro-glitter absurdity from Foxy Shazam: screaming guitars, pounding pianos, massive choruses and Eric Sean Nally's operatic wail. The Cincinnati act wears their influences on their sleeves with pride: Queen, Sparks, Jobriath, AC/DC and Mott The Hoople all filtered through The Darkness and Andrew W.K. The one noticeable difference is to be found in the mania department. Though the band is definitely amped up, they seem to be focusing more on songwriting and arranging than on tearing listeners' heads off with high-energy madness.
