Album Review

Cobra Starship surfaced in 2006 as part of the well-marketed Snakes on a Plane package, and the band's spiky pop-punk found a quick home among cult film buffs and Samuel L. Jackson fanatics. It was easy to like this first incantation of Cobra Starship — especially the breakout single "Bring It (Snakes on a Plane)" — as the band was part of something fun, flashy, and consciously campy. ¡Viva la Cobra! arrived one year after that emergence, and what had begun as something harmlessly fun (replete with eye-candy cameos by William Beckett and Maja Ivarsson) had turned into a full-fledged band. While the dance-pop numbers here end up repeating the same steps in an attempt to perfect the one routine Cobra Starship know how to do, there's enough melody to satisfy most lingering fans, and Cobra Starship get a major leg-up from Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump, who doubles as producer and co-writer for all 11 tracks.

In No Way A Disapointment

I've been a Cobra Starship fan for a good while and let me tell you, I have been waiting and waiting for this album. After listening to 'The City is At War' and 'Guilty Pleasure' for weeks on the band's myspace I was definitely ready for Viva La Cobra. My anticipation grew even more when I found out Patrick Stump was going to be co-producing (and I was so pleased to hear him lend his amazing vocal abilites on more than one song). This album was in no way a disappointment. I was amazed with the first two songs and the rest of the album is just as spectacular. They were amazing on "While The City Sleeps We Rule the Streets", but on this album they've just improved so much. The music is amazing as are the lyrics. It's a must-buy!

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...
