Artists with a marked Queen adoration traditionally don't stay afloat in the cutthroat waters of rock 'n' roll for long. The Darkness, for example, plummeted to the sea floor after its debut and has since become a pathetic interminable mess, and the obnoxiously innocuous Mika is currently wriggling in the recesses of obscurity (where he belongs). Foxy Shazam, however, has proven to have a little more staying power. While the guitar tones and histrionic background vocals are unmistakably Queen, frontman Eric Sean Nally's voice is actually pretty distinctive, if anything sounding more like Pat Benatar and Dee Snyder's hypothetical lovechild than Freddie Mercury. The group's latest record, The Church of Rock and Roll, would have likely been too smart and self-aware for most '70s cock-rock audiences. MORGAN TROPER
