`Red Light Fever' is a pretty solid outing from Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders and is wears it's influences on its sleeve throughout. This albums sounded like a blend of the Foo Fighters and Queen and considering these are the contributing artists and the musicians Taylor most often plays with, this is no real surprise. This has the high pitched harmonised backing vocal Queen is renowned for and the solid, chugging riffs so beloved by Foos fans, but not always on the same tracks! I'd say the first half of the album sounds the most like Queen and the latter half like Foos. Taylor has credible vocals throughout, easily as good as Grohl to be honest and the songs on offer are well written and produced. This is a fun side project for Hawkins and that shines through blatantly clear and if you are after an easy going rock album that doesn't take itself too seriously, but which still offers up some credible songs in their own right, then this is the place to go.
