Red Light Fever is easily the best Man-Rock album ever.

I should know, I wrote it.

I don't care if you buy the record or not but before you slag it off, give it a listen. Then slag it off.

What a brilliant and exciting return for Justin Hawkins. After a year or two away from the Rock music scene, he's back with new Super-Group HOT LEG. This is their debut album, Red Light Fever.

To start things off let's get things into perspective; not only are Hot Leg better than The Darkness, they seem to be gelling together more as friends and appear to be getting on swimmingly, so hopefully they'll be around for many years to come.
Tighter than an Italian Tennor's top trouser button, Hot Leg storm their way through 10 tracks of blistering fun-filled, rock-fuelled, wrecking ball romps, barely stopping to reload and filling your ears with delicious (it's GOT to be fattening) ear candy. Swooping block harmonies, thrashing guitar, brilliant drums and bass (dubbed the 'Power Zone' by the band),expert musicianship and they're most definatly not afraid to use keyboards to their campest abilities!

Of course, if you didn't much care for Hawkins' falsetto - Queen on Helium - power ballady - AC/DC riffing style then obviously you're not going to like this. The first track 'Chickens' pretty much confirms that Justin hasn't changed his song writing style (not that we'd ever ask him to).

Permisson To Land was an album that launched The Darkness in Super-Stardom. It was something different, a little off the hook but ultimatly, a damn fine piece of music. After a long wait the heat had died off a little allowing The Darkness to become figures of fun and ridicule rather than recieving praise for their obvious talent. One Way Ticket To Hell...And Back, I feel was more where Justin wanted to go with his music in the first place, and while it contains some of his best work to date the general feel of the album is a little too calculated for some, too studio experty.

Justin Hawkins is back with a great new band and a fantastic debut album! I was fortunate to see and meet these guys in Exeter back in October and they put on such a great show. I knew one song at the time, 'Trojan Guitar', but that didn't matter as all the tunes were so easy to get into! While this is a fantastic album, it shouldn't be taken too seriously. It's great music yes, but it's also meant to be a bit of fun. Anyway, time for a track by track review:

Chickens: I think they opened with this when I saw them but I'm not 100% sure. It has a great riff for opening the album and imediatley begins to show Justin's huge vocal range with some massive falsetto. 8/10

You Can't Hurt Me Anymore - The first riff in this song sounds like something AC/DC would come up with, Justin's always had a penchant for stuff like that. This is a fantasticly catchy song with a great sing along chorus and pounding drums. 9/10

Ashamed - This is probably my least favourite song on the album but it's still very listenable to. It features Beverli Brown on vocals who Justin dueted with to try and represent Great Britain in Eurovision with. Not great but not awful either. 7/10

I've Met Jesus - One of the songs that I came out of the gig singing! I bought the single over christmas to try and get it in the charts but it wasn't happening. It's a very catchy song with another great chorus. Also the verse riff is very interesting. 8/10

Trojan Guitar - This song was made availiable for free download long before I saw them. It's the only song on the album that's longer than 5mins and is an epic rhomp through medieval times. A fine song.

im not sure how i discovered hot leg, but since i have, ive been obsessed and in love. Being a huge fan of Justin, it was instint to purchase the EP and after id heard such tracks as Ive Met Jesus, i had found what rock and roll is about. the variety that ive found in red light fever is just amazing. i heard the album and although its shocking to begin with, you find yourself in love. if you think about it though, i bet you thought bohemian rhaphsody was weird the first time you heard that.

id highly reckonmend anyone Red Light Fever. youd be stupid not to infact! Man Rock has never been stronger!

ps. if you ever get the chance to see the Leg live, take it!
it was one of the best gigs ive ever been to, and ive seen millions of bands :)

pps. also, buy official Hot Leg tea towels if you get the chance. i did and ive never looked back!

:)

Hot leg are the perfect cure if not the remedying solution to the credit crunch with ten tracks of falsetto bouncing rockers which i missed since The Darkness imploded after their difficult second album.

"Chickens" is a stomper and screamer of a song may not be suitable for those who hate falsetto's but for those who enjoy a laugh which carries on in a similar form on "You can't hurt me anymore" whilst Justin and his former eurovision partner Beverlei Brown give the late Ike Turner and currently living Tina Turner a run for their money on "Ashamed".

If jesus was actually real he would have had a massive hangover from encountering Hot leg if the shoe was on the other foot as they rock out with no sweat on "I met Jesus" whilst adding their "Queens" we will rock you vibe on the epic "Trojan Guitars" and 80's influences onto "Cocktails" and of course "Gay in the 80's.

This band should be included amongst the line up for Download just to be a pleasing antidote to the back pains and stretched necks from moshing and head banging providing they do not get bottled off the stage and back into the earths atmosphere.
