Jun 28, 2011With the exception of the always inventive playing of guitarist Wes Borland, here Limp Bizkit sound like a band whose time has passed. Given that this is a group that boorishly exemplified the empty materialism and crass self-centredness that lurked at nu-metal's core, this is surely no bad thing.
Sep 6, 2011I love this CD and have been waiting a long time for it!! It was well worth the wait...They have never sounded better and this is the best CD since Chocolate Starfish. It's original LB with some maturity in the voices and music now and so glad Wes is back!! I love it - awesome and have listened to over and over! It's addictive!!… Expand
Feb 7, 2014Instrumentally one of the strongest albums I've ever heard, lyrically decent by Bizkit standards (which isn't saying much) but vocally lacking. I appreciate the rawness but I also miss the 1999-2003 Bizkit sound (particuarly the more pop-oriented riffs, Fred's voice and Lethal's scratching).
Almost every song stands out in some way, what with the riffs of "Bring it Back", "Douche Bag", "Autotunage", "Why Try", "Killer in You" and "Shotgun"; the amazing yet simplistic synth of "Loser"; the chorus of "Gold Cobra"; the climax and lyricism of "Walking Away" and finally Lethal's session on "90.2.10".
"Shark Attack" is by far the weakest song on the album. Could be passable if Fred still retained his old voice.
Standard bonus tracks are also amazing, particularly "My Own Cobain" for its ending.
Exclusive tracks just make me cringe.

Jul 3, 2011The 90s were an interesting decade. It provided us with greats such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Soundgarden and a host of others, but it also steam-rolled our ear-buds with Limp Bizkit. A band that had moments of brilliance, but for the most part it was dogged down by Dursts mediocrity. It comes no surprise that Gold Cobra isn't a step into the new millennium, but rather a collection of 90s nu metal, served in a shiny new wrapper. Great for annoying the Hannah Montana kids, but dismal for personal enjoyment.… Expand
