CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

As matured as Cobra Juicy sounds in spots, it does not suggest that the band has grown up and left their cartoony, childish ways behind. And thank God for this, too.

Paste

Cobra Juicy leaves you sonically stoned, in a good way—good luck even getting off the couch.

76
Pitchfork

This might be BMSR's most accessible effort, but if you couldn't get past the vocoder and voodoo before, it's unlikely that you will now.

70
Under The Radar

It’s the Black Moth Super Rainbow recording we’ve been waiting for: unchecked and as wonky as ever, but with just enough structure to give it a lasting impact. 

70
PopMatters

While Cobra Juicy does occasionally flirt with the extraordinary, it ultimately settles for just being “quite good.”

60
Consequence of Sound

Cobra Juicy is the most technically focused that Black Moth Super Rainbow have ever been, but it also lacks an important degree of their trademark self-contradiction.

60
The 405

Cobra Juicy is one of those strange albums to criticise because there are no moments in it that could be truly describes as bad; overall it's a very well assembled record with some real standout moments.

BMSR come out with their most accessible release yet with their sound becoming a lot more dance-oriented. I'm down for whatever changes this band needs, but they've seriously lost their sense of experimentation here and I think it brings down the songwriting quite a bit. Now they're just sounding like some Daft Punk clone.
