    Much of Cobra Juicy finds itself operating more on the sensitive side of their distinct weirdness, with the album sporting some of the bands gentlest, breeziest, and most romantic sounding tracks yet.

    While Eating Us and their various solo pursuits found them sticking their necks out into the world at large, Cobra Juicy proves that their self-imposed isolation once again yields the best results.

    This might be BMSR's most accessible effort, but if you couldn't get past the vocoder and voodoo before, it's unlikely that you will now.

    There is still pullback, and delicate, melodic music seeps in, sounding like (synthetic) waves crashing on a (glass) beach. [No. 92, p.52]

    It's the Black Moth Super Rainbow recording we've been waiting for: unchecked and as wonky as ever, but with just enough structure to give it a lasting impact.

    Cobra Juicy employs a richly flourished amount of instruments and sounds that are catchy and full of life.

    We're treated to a blissful numbness, which is perfect for those who came here for the whacked out waveforms.

    Well, it is a pretty good album, not their best, but a steady, dream-like and inventive one. Windshield Smasher is still my favorite song off Cobra Juicy. Expand
