  1. This could be the record that provides that breakthrough [to mainstream].

    Despite the obvious fun Foxy are having, the darkness that comes from balancing life and career ebbs just beneath the surface, bringing a depth that isn't immediately evident through the copious gloss and glitter. [Feb 2012, p.82]

    Like with Foxy's previous efforts, The Church of Rock & Roll shines in its ballsy rejection of modern pop stereotypes, however, the new album slips in its contradictions.

    The entire album is driving, clever, and bombastic.

    Even though the album has a transitional feeling, Foxy Shazam still manage to make their sonic renovation a fun ride, and The Church of Rock and Roll is an entertaining stop on the musical journey.

    The Church of Rock and Roll is a flat out fun album. Simply put. This is something that you crank up when you want to have a good time. There is a little bit of a Queen feel to it, but it's not too much. There is still plenty of originality to be had. These guys keep getting better and better with every album. Expand

    My reaction to this album is "HOLY **** YES. IT'S ABOUT TIME." This is Rock and Roll in it's finest form in this generation. The thought of this album makes me excited. This will make you wanna turn your stereo up and listen for hours! Great masterpiece! Expand

    The first single off of 'The Church of Rock and Roll' may not be a long track, it may not get played on every radio station, and may not win a Grammy, but it will make you want to crank your stereo to 11 and sing your little heart out. 'I like it' is the most fun track on the album, but 'Holy touch' is a close second, with a great video to boot. With a sound reminiscent of Queen with a splash of Jet and a touch of My Chemical Romance, Foxy Shazam will soon be a household name, and for a band formed in 2004, it's about damn time. Expand
