Foxy Shazam – Foxy Shazam

| On 04, Oct 2010

Foxy Shazam’s latest, self-titled album is everything I’ve come to expect from the band and more. As the band’s recent singles Unstoppable and Oh Lord (both of which feature on the record) have suggested, Foxy Shazam consistently manage to avoid crossing the thin line between the theatrical and the garish, falling very definitely on the side of the former. It’s been said before, but the band do often bring to mind The Black Parade era My Chemical Romance – over the top, but only really ever in a good way. The album is definitely a far cry from a lot of alternative output nowadays, and will for many be an acquired taste. That being said, Foxy Shazam isn’t exactly avant-garde – the band try new things, yes, but the record is never challenging to listen to. Think of it as pop rock crossed with sometimes bizarre showtunes. An interesting third album, proving once again that it’s possible to make an enjoyable record without sacrificing originality.
