Album Review

In the latter stages of the grunge era a plethora of bands arose from the ashes of mediocrity to establish themselves with minor radio hits. The Nixons fell into this category when their radio single "Sister" achieved moderate success. However, once you get past the sentimental radio hit there are several tracks on Foma more deserving of attention. "Head" is a roller coaster ride of anxious buildup, explosive release, and then more buildup and release. "Smile" provides catchy lyrics sung with emotion-laden vocals. Arguably the best song on the album is "Trampoline," which takes the best characteristics of "Head" and "Smile" to produce a well-crafted piece of songwriting complete with numerous flashes of guitar virtuosity. The Nixons are at their best when Zac Maloy's vocals are wrenching to compete with the wailing guitar licks provided here by Jesse Davis. Foma opens with a scream and then delivers a hard rock romp that will delight fans of the heavy alternative genre.

Customer Reviews

Good old music

My brother was in this band so I pretty much grew up on this album. These guys worked harded than most people will ever work in their jobs and accombished more in a few years than most people will in 30 years. And when I say they worked hard I don't say that lightly! They practiced, recorded and toured like mad pirates. They toured!! Toured!! Toured!!! And then toured some more!! And this album is the reward for all the hard work and energy. Also check out the band Huver in the iTunes store. They are the former members of the Nixons with a new (and much better) lead singer from the band Owl and a totaly new sound.

this is a GREAT rock album

I'd highly recommend it. Its like a B version of STP, but hey, STP was ridiculously good-- so I'll take it.

Rock you might not have heard

Even though you may have never heard of the Nixons, you should check this album out.
