    Gold Cobra reminds us of how much fun a tight, no-holds-barred rap-metal record can be in the right hands.

    So is it any good? Does it matter? Limp Bizkit are bigger than ever before so getcha groove on, stop taking things seriously.

    Gold Cobra props itself up as the best thing we've seen from our most hated band since even 1997, and the two albums following that had enough singles to fill a greatest hits compilation one record ahead of schedule.

    With 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.

    The album plays to the band's strengths, but there's simply nothing here as catchy as "My Way" or as infectiously fun as "Break Stuff."
  7. 10
    It's difficult to believe Limp Bizkit could return after all this time somehow even more hateful than before.

    i got his cd yesterday, and listened it over and over again. Limp bizkit follows its old music, but with better lyrics, and better rhythm. Thei got his cd yesterday, and listened it over and over again. Limp bizkit follows its old music, but with better lyrics, and better rhythm. The songs are in my opinion also harder than 10 years ago. The song Gold Cobra is simply amazing. The album is a must buy for lb fans, but those who never were into them, should try this album anyways. Expand

    Yeah sure Dust has been a dick. The media love bagging this band and don't even give them a chance.
    Why is everyone so down on numetal?? It has become the most unfashionable music genre for some reason. Well I like it, its rhythmic, energetic and aggressive. I bet there are plenty of closet numetal fans still out there. If you are one of them you will love this record. Easily the best since Chocolate Starfish.
    Don't be a sheep ... check it out for yourself.

This time they're returning to their sourceA more than welcomed return for Limp Bizkit after the extremely disappointing Results may vary. This time they're returning to their source material, with some good old angry fun, immature verses from Fred Durst and an aggressive heavy metal sound with all the band reunited. Expand

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
