Red Light Fever

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Perhaps Taylor Hawkins is fated to live in Dave Grohl's shadow, but that isn't an entirely terrible place to be. Certainly on Red Light Fever, his second album with the Coat Tail Riders, he winds up sounding not too dissimilar from not just the Foo Fighters, but often adapts elements of Grohl's side projects with Josh Homme, leaning particularly hard on the grinding guitar growl that characterizes both Queens of the Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures.
