The Shazam: “Squeeze the Day” (2002)

Nashville power pop band The Shazam is led by gifted guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Hans Rotenberry, whose stuff shows a love for classic melodic 70’s and 80’s rock, with a certain element of British-ness in the mix.

Unfortunately, the record sales have never been on the level of the critical acclaim for these guys. Their excellent Godspeed the Shazam and Tomorrow the World records had me waiting for the true classic album I believed they had in them.

With Rotenberry currently working on side projects, I’m wondering if that ship has now sailed.

Nevertheless, they carried the power pop torch as well as any band of their time.
