Cobra Juicy marks the enigma known as Tobaxxo's return to his pseudo-collaborative effort Black Moth Super Rainbow, and it is a grand return indeed. Recording, producing, and marketing the album himself was undoubtedly a trying task for Tobaxxo, but the record itself leaves the listener hoping that he puts himself under this much pressure for the next record, as well. Cobra Juicy is Tobaxxo's finest work to date, expertly merging the sounds of BMSR and his solo material into a sonic landscape dripping with gooey analog synths and hypnotic house beats.
With thumping anthems like "Windshield Smasher" and "Gangs in the Garden" set across from the sweet love song "Psychic Love Damage" and the crooning ballad "Healing Power of Nothing," Cobra Juicy has a little something for everyone, especially fans of music that has pop sensibility while being so much more than pop. This is BMSR's most accessible album, and I dare say that if mainstream radio would bother paying attention, they would have several hits on their hands to choose from on this record. If you don't get the insanely catchy refrain from "Healing Power of Nothing" stuck in your head for days on end, then you may be a superhuman entity, and you should check with your doctor.
Buy this album - actually, buy two of them - one for yourself, and give one to someone who likes GOOD music that comes from the heart and hits like a jackhammer on acid.
