    Traps, gets plenty of mileage from those elements [sun, hot dogs, and babes by the pool], but it shoots them through with just enough worry and weary resignation to land them a notch above the typical empty-calorie summer jams.

    Traps shakes with stoned-in-a-basement riffs and sarcasm.

    Most of Traps keeps the toes a-tapping with happily-sung, sad-bastard references to bygone lovers, running out of weed and coming of quarter-age. [No.88 p.57]

    Definitely a turn-it-up album to add to your summertime playlist.

    With the recent break up of Girls, there is certainly an opportunity for Jaill to take the mantle of derivative, vintage pop rock, but they are not quite there yet.

    On the whole, Traps is definitely worth a listen, but it's clear that the band can do much better.

    This album is so soaked in self-pity that a track called "Madness" seems like a given. "Stone Froze Mascot" is a bad metaphor in and of itself - more self-pity, more of the same. Sound-wise, the album could use work, too.
