Reviews

"Riley is at his very best." --The New York Observer

"Tim Riley's Fever combines brainy and audacious cultural analysis with genuine musical understanding--a combination rare enough to inspire exhilaration." --Tim Page, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Tim Page on Music

"In his new book, Fever, Tim Riley goes beyond his unique fusion of technical music knowledge and stunningly perceptive emotional exegesis of lyrics to a wider-angle social vision." --Ron Rosenbaum, The New York Observer

"Fever is a fascinating look at the ways rock has shaped how we think about sexual identity....Riley presents serious academic points within a rock-critic analysis of icons that even a layperson would appreciate....Witty, acerbic, and smart." --Charles R. Cross, author of Heavier Than Heaven
