Eric Nally is the lead singer of the band Foxy Shazam.  In 2005 they released the album Flamingo Trigger, which featured Eric's impressive and expressive vocal instrument with nothing held back; shouting; yelling; screaming; that sort; it was very experimental in terms of post-hardcore.  2008's album, Introducing, brought a more alternative feel, with Eric Nally doing more than shouting: learning to sing to the limits of his quirky tenor.  After that came Foxy's self-titled album in 2010, which features very impressive pop singing from Eric - although still harsher and more rock than pop.  Finally, in 2012, we have The Church of Rock and Roll, a fantastic display of Eric's ever-improving voice.  His voice soars on extremely high notes, now much higher sung than the likes of Introducing, and he has more control over it, and can affect his tone better to go from clear highs to a grittier more textured sound.

I'm absolutely convinced it's feedback, but every fan I ask says it's Eric Facepalm .

I could actually buy that as voice. Gets up to B6 too, by the way.

That B6 is voice, there's even an audible slide down that sounds like voice.
That note is also where my username comes from Smile

"Oh Lord" chorus definitely goes up to an E5, as does the last one from "Count Me Out" after the key change
E5 in "Count me Out" could maybe be considered blue but the Eb right after it (this is what LOVE) is definitely modal

also a blue B5 "whoo!" right before the first chorus of "Connect"

Thanks! added.

I haven't done much notewatching for their self-titled yet, my main focus was on their newest; I really should revisit the older albums, I missed tons of notes.

You've pretty much got all the important ones anyway, I'll give it a full listen later today and see if there's anything significant I forgot about

I'm more interested in some of the screams from the first two albums, a lot of them are ridiculously high and could probably be considered full (although very distorted obv.)

his voice is rather low on Flamingo Trigger, IIRC. it definitely got higher later in his career with technique; I wouldn't guess there's anything significantly full or high TBH, but I could be very wrong (I hypothesize he was borderline LT back then, and for the most part of Introducing he was moving away from that).
For the most part, there's probably a lot of weird little noises of falsettish squeaks. Across The Golden Fields might have some, maybe some of the others are worth a second look too. I hope I'm not totally wrong on this Very Happy

however, Introducing - being a mix between Flamingo Trigger and a newer rock style - has some greatly shouted notes that are audible and modal. I will check that album out again.

Yeah as far as remotely clean high notes he doesn't really go above the C5 or so on Flamingo, but I never tried pitching any of those really gritty screams he was pulling off back then and I'm sure a lot of them are gonna be upper-5th octave stuff.

Of course all those incredible wails from the self-titled onwards are much more impressive to me, it's really cool hearing him transform from a typical aggresive post-hardcore vocalist to the Freddie Mercury re-incarnation he is today.

idk if touring has gotten to him or if maybe all the smoking and bad form have caught up, but man is his voice failing... and this is an official album.  it no longer soars, it's weak and uncontrolled.  sounds like a bad live recording of his voice, to be honest.  every track is like this.

i cannot understand how much he's failing to his most notes that would've been piss easy for him around the time of au contraire... it's really sad. the tone has suffered and he just sounds uncomfortable, like he's fatigued and wants to get it over with. it's tired sounding.  Sad

Have they had a rigorous touring schedule? Would explain a number of things.

it's still not much of an excuse... it's a studio album, but it doesn't feel like they spent much time in the studio.  it's uninspired, sloppy, and overall underwhelming for a band that hasn't done much for a long time (not since 2012).

i saw them in concert several months back, and they haven't done a concert since then.  they even announced that the album would be released in fall, yet here it is now.  this is just a real let down from one of their biggest fans. what's worse, Steve Albini worked on it with them, yet it's their worst mixed album yet - if he can't fix it, i'm really lost as to what went wrong.

It seems to be much more of a grower than others. They went much more lowkey than their other stuff, so it doesn't try to hit ya in the gut like their earlier stuff. I respect FS as probably the last rock auteurs we're gonna get in a while, but yeah it's pretty disappointing. I still enjoy it, but it could be improved.

Thank god his voice on Gonzo was just a stylistic decision and not vocal damage. Although his high notes are sounding thinner than The Church of Rock n Roll.
