Album Review: Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders - 'Red Light Fever' (Sony)

5 / 10 Though it can boast performances from Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen as well as Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters tubthumper Taylor Hawkins’ second solo effort feels more of a work in progress than the finished article. Comprised of chunky, solid classic rock riffs that will probably appeal to viewers of Top Gear, the record is a raspy, glam rock-tinged effort that despite its best efforts, comes off half-cocked. While the likes of ‘Way Down’ and ‘James Gang’ are serviceable enough, this is one time warp we don’t really want to do again.
