Editors’ Notes

After listening to Cobra Starship’s fourth album, it’s difficult to believe that Gabe Saporta started the band as a joke. It’s not that Night Shades takes itself seriously, but some serious work went into crafting this near-perfect party album. The amorous power-pop opener “You Belong to Me” starts strong with romantic lyrics crooned over a synthesizer-dappled soundscape before Cobra Starship takes flight with “You Make Me Feel.” Featuring Britney Spears collaborator Sabi, this is a powerhouse of a dance- floor smash that plays like Lady Gaga going back in time three decades for the sole purpose of reinventing new wave. OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder gives “#1Nite (One Night)” his King Midas touch which closely recalls Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love.” Female French rock band Plastiscines make an awesome appearance on “Fool Like Me” — easily the catchiest tune here. The triumphant dance anthem “Disaster Boy” is another gem with Victoria Asher’s keytar and demure vocals giving the tune some ‘80s-inspired cool. Of the three bonus tracks, Shaggy’s cameo on “Anything For Love” is a standout.

i really wish i could buy this now! but, i preordered it thru there website, so i have to wait till 2mrw!

As the legend of Cobra Starship would have it, frontman Gabe Saporta fled into the deserts of Arizona one day to find the true meaning of his existence away from his emo-rock band, Midtown. Saporta spent days and nights pondering life, mysterious lights constantly plaguing the nighttime sky above him. One distinct night, the lights became so mesmerizing that Gabe became catatonic and started levitating into the air. A snake suddenly came out of nowhere, bit his neck, and he awoke to find a talking...
