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.
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.
