Review Summary: Cobra Starships fourth album is certainly a change to what we are used to but is sure to keep the fans happy and some new listeners intrigued. All up, I quite enjoyed it and I'm sure Pop Punk/Electronica fans will too.0 of 4 thought this review was well written
From just looking at the digital booklet (that was included in the deluxe edition, which was nice) you could tell that Cobra Starships fourth album has a different feel. It still has the explicit label but there are many song titles that are quite a change from the previous album, Hot Mess. Such titles were You Belong To Me, You Make Me Feel… and Anything For Love. Being a Cobra fan already, I have been looking forward to this album since about a week after Hot Mess was released, but I promise, I wont be bias :).
The first track was a very cute and a lot different to anything ive heard from them. It was a good indication of what was coming. Track 4 (Fool Like Me) was automatically my favorite (of the four that I had heard). It is not only amusing but also felt real. That fact that it was featuring the Placticines was an added bonus. Track 5 (Anything for love) was exactly what I expected. The lyrics were saying 'Anything for love, any-thing for love.' and 'All I need, all I need, all Indeed'. Its not my FAVOURITE song on the album, but it is pretty nice. I can see it being a radio hit. As soon as Don't Blame The Wold Its The DJs Fault started I could tell that it was going to be a favourite of mine. The beat worked perfectly with the lyrics, I just loved it.
The album continues on with 'Cobra Style' songs until it reaches the beginning of the remix section (for those with the deluxe edition). To tell the truth, I don't ever enjoy remixes, especially when the songs originally have a dancey feel so I probably could have survived with the regular edition, but I have no problem with putting a little more money in their pocket.
All in all, I enjoyed the album and it will definitely be blasting my eardrums for the next few weeks. I recommend it to any Pop Punk/Electronica fan.
