    Liner Note Author: Kerry Doole.
    The glam-punk grit of Toronto's Lookin' for Trouble album is by far the band's edgiest recording. Not only is it their debut album, but it has lead singer Holly Woods sounding her roughest, with tracks that are strewn together by a boorish and coarse street-corner feel. With "Even the Score," "Do Watcha Be Watcha," and a cover of Pat Benatar's "You Better Run" being the best indication of the group's unpolished sound, there is still some energy left over for the title track. But even with Woods's grainy vocals taking precedent, there is some hint in the camouflaged tidiness of the guitars and keyboard work that Toronto's slight alternative direction wasn't a mainstay. They adopted a more commercial, hard rock lean on future albums like Get It On Credit and Girls Night Out, and while Holly Woods still sounds forceful on later recordings, Lookin' for Trouble embodies a certain alternative feel that can't be heard on the rest of their material. ~ Mike DeGagne
