Album Review

Trapt, yet another nu-metal entry from southern California, proffers an eponymous major-label debut that is as enthusiastic as it is plagiaristic. There is an organic feel to the disc that separates it from their more angst-ridden peers, specifically those who rely on electronic gadgetry over a simple guitar-bass-drums setup, though the congenial feel fits in alongside Incubus, especially with a propensity toward pensive moments that evoke a softer image than most, one that would fit into emo if the band wasn't so obviously aesthetically a rock band; "These Walls" actually sounds like Nickelback at its most adult rock-radio-friendly, for example. Trapt isn't original, per se, as much as it does a good job melding its pronounced influences more seamlessly than most; the band would get a better recommendation if the record had songs that stood out a bit more. ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi

Customer Reviews

My problem with mainstream media...

Let me start off by saying this is by far one of my favorite albums of all time. All of Trapt's songs have this unique vibe to them that sets them apart from all other bands (even though some like to compare them to the likes of Staind, which I think is totally off), and therefore I recommend every one of their albums (but most particularly this one, their self-titled album).

Now, please ignore all (or at least, most) other reviews on here because their feedback is totally worthless. Most people are just praising Trapt's most popular song, Headstrong, and have not commented or even listened to the rest (and in my opinion, the better half) of the album! Don't just buy Headstrong and leave the others in the dark, because every one of these songs deserve a chance. Here's my complete rundown on this album:

1. Headstrong (7/10): Personally, not one of my favorites, but if you're into songs that the majority of the population appeals to, then buy this one, you won't be dissappointed.
2. Made of Glass (9/10): A great song (a little slow, so not for the hard rockers), but it's definitely one of my favorites on the album. Worth the listen.
3. Hollowman (9/10): This is another amazing song, but I'm surprised that this one hasn't received more credit. If you like Headstrong, definitely buy Hollowman, it's a great listen.
4. These Walls (8/10): A good song, but again, this one's a little slow, kind of like Made of Glass. But if you liked Made of Glass, then you should definitely buy this one.
5. Still Frame (8/10): Probably the second most popular song on the album, Still Frame is another hard-rocker by Trapt that you should grab if you liked Headstrong or Hollowman. A word of warning, though: he does drop the F-bomb every time the chorus comes around, and I don't know why iTunes hasn't labeled it as "explicit".
6. Echo (7/10): A slow song compared to the others on this album, but it has this unique sound to it that kind of drags you in. It's got a unique feel to it, and if you're into that sort of thing, get this song.
7. The Game (9/10): Again, I'm surprised this song hasn't been praised more. It's got an edge akin to that of Headstrong, Hollowman, and Still Frame. If you liked those, you'll love this.
8. When All Is Said And Done (9/10): An excellent song. I especially like the guitar that comes in near the end of the chorus. Another one with a unique sound, if you liked Made of Glass and the like, then try this one out.
9. Enigma (3/10): This is one song that never really grew on me. It's, again, got a unique sound to it and an edgey chorus, but this is one that I never gave a chance. For likers of a slower Trapt.
10. Stories (7/10): A good song, but one of the slower ones. If you liked the rest of the album, you may or may not like this song, it all depends on your view of music. If you like Trapt for their hardcore rock, then don't get this song.
11. New Beginning (7/10): A decent song with a unique sound; recommended for those who liked Stories or Enigma. It seems that the beginning half of the album is more hardcore than the end.

All in all, it's an amazing album and you should give every song a chance, you might surprise yourself. And if you liked their debut album, check out Trapt's newer albums Only Through the Pain and Someone in Control. You won't be dissappointed.

P.S.
And don't listen to the stupid reviews on here that only praise Trapt's most popular song, Headstrong. There's a lot of songs Trapt has made that wipe their most popular out of the water.

Headstrong

I love Headstrong! It is awsome! I only knew about this song because my friend, Sam told me.

Headstrong is not the only good song

Some of these reviews are stupid and contribute no respect towards this band whatsoever.

Headstrong is definitely one of the most popular songs on this album because it's a great listen.
However, following Headstrong comes Made of Glass, Hollowman, These Walls, Still Frame, and Echo; these amazing songs definitely keep you interested in the album which makes it harder for you to skip songs(Which you shouldn't do in the first place with this album).

So if you only bought this album for Headstrong, then you really need to broaden your taste by giving the other songs a chance. This album was worthy of buying. It's that simple.

Biography

Formed: 1995 in Los Gatos, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Californian post-nu-metal quartet Trapt formed in the '90s while the original lineup were still in high school, where Chris Brown and Peter Charell absorbed the heavy rock sound of Korn, Soundgarden, and Metallica. Both were music geeks and naturally flirted with the idea of getting a group together. Casual gigs in school motivated them even more, leaving Brown and Charell to design what would become Trapt. In 1997, guitarist Simon Ormandy joined the band. The trio recorded its own demo and landed...
