    Self-titled

    by Samuel Barker

    Upon first listen, one would think they were hearing a female rock band that could possibly fill the void left by the demise of Betty Blowtorch with Tootsie's blazing guitar riffs and rock knowledge, however, once it is time to sing, it all goes to hell.

    The vocals on this album have been given a hideous chorus effect, which makes them sound as if they recorded in a fish bowl. This is a terrible flaw by the producer as well as the band, for allowing it to happen. They could definitely use the sound of a live vocal with possibly some calls to the listener to get into the mood to rock.

    Erica Lebel's guitar playing is the saving grace of this record. She shows a knowledge of rock guitar and pulls of some solid foundation riff to get the listeners attention. Unfortunately these riffs cannot save the rest of the down points of this record.

    Tootsie needs to concentrate on better production and stronger vocals with no irritating effects. With those two steps, Tootsie could definitely become a female rock staple.
