"Look Inside" (Self-released)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

"Look Inside," by Orange County's Boobie Trap, delivers old school punk rock with a dash of sultriness. 

Reminiscent of Blondie in many ways, from the infectious choruses to the obvious female-fronted point of view, "Look Inside" also features a definitive So Cal punk vibe, permeating through tracks like "Darkness Falling" and "Amino Lawal," that instantly moves Boobie Trap out of the eye candy only category. 

Rocking hard on tracks like "Hey You" (complete with chaotic punk rock guitar solo) and the anthem of affirmation "I've Come Into My Own," this quintet proves that you can be gritty and look damn good doing it. 

For a female fronted band with bite a la The Distillers, look no further than Boobie Trap.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
