Nelson's afternoon announcer for 103.5 FM The Bridge Dustin Stashko reviews the new album by Foxy Shazam

Nelson's afternoon drive announcer for The Bridge 103.5 FM Dustin Stashko reviews Foxy Shazam's The Church of Rock and Roll.

Dustin Stashko shares his review for Foxy Shazam’s new album.

In the vein of Queen and The Darkness, comes Foxy Shazam. They’ve been around since 2004 generating some buzz, touring with indie heavy-weights The Strokes, and making some pretty decent arena rock anthems.

If you’ve ever donned a mullet or the thought of having one crossed your mind, this album is made for you.  It sounds like it’s straight out of the ‘70s, but at the same time remains completely fresh. With falsetto singing and heavy guitars right out of the starting gate on “Welcome To The Church Of Rock & Roll”, you’ll be fist pumping the air in a furious pace. The lyrics on here are heartfelt, but sometimes rather outrageous. On I Like It we’ve got a great line in the chorus “That’s the biggest black a** I’ve ever seen, and I like it!” Yes, kind of cheesy, but didn’t Queen have a song about fat bottom girls? We’ll let this one slide, Foxy.

There are some tracks on Church of Rock and Roll that are more of the same and easily skipable though. That being said, Foxy Shazam tends to not take themselves too seriously, and just want to have a good time. This is just a fun album that should be played on a Friday night drinking with close friends.
