Review: The Church Of Rock And Roll - Foxy Shazam

This album is WELL worth your attention

By , Columnist

Foxy Shazam band started back in the New Millennium’s early period.  But even with several album releases already under their belt, it’s their current release, The Church Of Rock And Roll that gains the most attention for the band.

Issued as a debut for the revived iconic I.R.S. Records - an interesting commentary all its own - the new album by the quirky band has made many of us previously raised eyebrows types stand up and applaud the album as not only worthy of the label’s legacy in respect to previous bands but also worthy of your attention.


The Church Of Rock And Roll is filled with eleven excellent tracks.  From the beefy and loud title track, to the heartier follower, “I Like It”, the album showcases itself well with biting chasers to each previous track.

The Church Of Rock And Roll brings a good vibe to the solid late ‘70s and rousing ‘80s rock that it walks with. Foxy Shazam crafts excellent pop/rock songs like the excellent “Forever Together,” along with “(It’s) Too Late Baby,” and the rocking “Last Chance At Love.”  But they can also lay claim to rock 'n roll that will capture the imagination of a young audience.

Check out The Church Of Rock And Roll.  While it’s tempting to use a witty church-related phrase here like the album can save your rock 'n roll soul (damn it, I did it anyway), I will say that if you like good old fashion rock, this album has the goods.
