  • Summary: The New York City five-piece (yes, they're one of *those* New York bands) make their debut with 'Red Bedroom,' mixing dance and punk like it's 2002 all over again.

  1. 80
    A solid record of contagious melodies and dance-tastic beats. [Jul/Aug 2004, p.125]
  2. Like Hot Hot Heat with a less annoying singer, The Fever offer a glimpse of everything that's good about dance-punk.
  3. 76
    It's a solid showing from a band... dead set on packaging the unbridled mania of their live show, and more fun than anything else. [#11, p.97]
  4. The band's organ and raspy vocals give Red Bedroom a jolt of early punk, which, combined with an adept sense of rock ‘n' roll, has signs that the Fever has been spending equal time listening to proto-punk and garage rock bands of the ‘60s.
  5. Has the pungent whiff of an album with an imminent expiry date. [12 Feb 2005, p.51]
  6. 60
    A hedonistic debut that's thick with the stench of leatherette and fake fur. [Aug 2004, p.131]
  7. When Red Bedroom ditches the choppy guitar riffs... the results are as much of a buzzkill to Bedroom's jumpin' vibe as cops busting up a raging house party. [Aug 2004, p.116]
