Street Light Suzie

The Red Album

While it lacks the rawness of their live show and previous release, Street Light Suzie's sophomore disc is tight and purposeful. Produced by Guns N' Roses alum Gilby Clarke and buttressed by a second guitarist while starring Wiley Ross' dense rasp, The Red Album's hard rock stabs at commercial success – or at least 101X airplay. With a bigger sound that sands off the debut's jagged edges, eight low-life anthems and a Chris Isaak cover maintain dive status before taking a left turn with the melodic "Drunk n Lonely" and ending on a solid piano jam. **.5
