4.0 out of 5 stars LIMP BIZKIT "GOLD COBRA" June 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
For a while back at the turn of the century Limp Bizkit could do no wrong, their first 3 studio albums all selling millions of copies. It seemed the more negative press they got especially front man Fred Durst the more records they ended up selling. That would all change by late 2001/early 2002 as a new wave of guitar bands namely The Strokes and The White Stripes would change the course of The music landscape at the time. Also the departure of guitarist Wes Borland would also deliver a blow to Limp Bizkit. They continued on with 2003's "Results May Vary" a record which divided fans and didn't sell in the numbers the previous albums had. A brief return in 2005 with original guitarist Wes Borland yielded the ep "The Unquestionable Truth Part 1" which saw the band adopt a much heavier sound. By 2006 it was all over Borland had departed again to work on his own band Black Light Burns debut album. Red baseball caps were becoming an endangered item, that was until 2009 when they got back together and started touring and promised a new album which is what we have now in "Gold Cobra".

It's their first full length album With Wes Borland since 2000's "Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog flavored Water" and his presence does make a difference, you will recognise his familiar riff on "Bring It Back"(following intro opener "Introbra") which bursts into life before the minute mark when Drummer John Otto unleashes his heavy sound. The title track "Gold Cobra" sound like it wouldn't be out of place on first album "Three Dollar Bill Y'All" and features some great bass work by Sam Rivers as well as some great rhymes from Durst the track even changes a bit towards the end, kinda like the breakdown used in "Eat You alive". As always Rivers Bass and Otto's drums are real tight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what you would expect, in a good way. October 25, 2011
By J0n8
Format:Audio CD
This is exactly the CD you expect from Limp Bizkit, in a totally good way. They've written new songs that sound like their old songs, but without being stale or played out. If you are already a fan of LB then this is perfect. If you are not, do not go into it expecting to be turned into one. They've updated their repertoire with auto-tune, and Wes is as amazing as ever. Hell, even Fred keeps the nonsensical rhymes to a minimum. All in all, I am very impressed and happy with this CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Hollywood ending July 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
So, Limp's first studio album since 2005 started out firing on all 16 cylinders. It was like taking a trip back into my 20s when Korn was still relevant, Britney was still every man's fantasy and rock had a rosy future. The first five tracks on Gold Cobra remind me of classic Bizkit, yet it doesn't sound dated. The second half isn't terrible, but I felt a gnawing sensation mounting from the pit of my stomach as though I was watching the latest Michael Bay summer blockbuster; a great beginning to grab your attention, a mediocre middle that is just intruguing enough to hold your attention and a disappointing 3rd act. It's not that the album is a letdown. Overall, I'm thrilled to add this to my collection, but I personally felt the novelty wearing thin as the album progressed.

Aside from tracks 8 and 13, the remaining singles on the second half of the record are so-so, but probably forgettable. Fortunately, the final track (Killer in You) is a very solid single as is "Walking Away", which appears in the eigth slot, and the two break up what is an otherwise average second half. Overall, I don't like giving the album only 3 stars, but I feel giving it 4 would be pushing it.

It's good to have LB back, and this album is good enough to where I'll look forward to the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Year of the Cobra August 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Like the band say themselves, "if you like Limp Bizkit, you will like this album. If you hate Limp Bizkit, don't bother." As is the norm, Fred Durst's vocal delivery and lyrical content is the weak point in the music here, but the other 4 other members of Limp Bizkit blow any expectations I had out of the water. The bonus tracks (Back Porch, My Own Cobain, Angels, Middle Finger, Los Angeles & Combat Jazz) really help round out the sound of "Gold Cobra", but even the standard 12 track album is a rap/rock force to be reckoned with. "The Unquestionable Truth: Part 1" was average at best, but "Gold Cobra" is guitarist Wes Borland's true "welcome home" party.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original line up is back !!!!!! July 20, 2011
By Ozgr
Format:Audio CD
I did listen to some of the samples prior to purchase. This album is the next natural progression after the chocolate starfish. It really is a great album. If you were into Limp Bizkit then you will love this CD. If you hated them then you will hate this CD. Couple things to note, this is the 13 track version and a 17 track deluxe version can be found on I-tunes and the Best Buy version which is the one I purchased. Happy listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, musically at any rate, this is pretty amazing June 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Oh, Limp Bizkit. The first album with the original band members since 2000's Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water isn't at all how I expected it to be. Gone are many of the slower and slightly more accessible tunes from Chocolate Starfish and Results May Vary (with the exception of Walking Away, which is really good) and instead, we have an album much more along the lines of the rougher and more intense-sounding 3 Doller Bill Y'all mixed with a little Significant Other for good measure. We have a band here that's clearly been re-energized and ready to go back to heavier music and the results are, musically, very impressive. Wes Borland tears it up on the guitar, and Sam, John, and DJ Lethal are also in top form. The production's incredible; this is a fantastic-sounding record, with the mixing done perfectly. You can clearly hear all the instruments at all times. Bring it Back starts the album off after the intro and it's got not only an incredibly catchy beat but a heavy and fast chorus, and really doesn't sound like anything I've heard before. This is how rap metal would sound today if it still existed, I guess.

This great sound quality is evident throughout the album, to the point where I couldn't even believe it. Autotunage is the best example of a stupid idea (jokingly putting autotune over heavy rock) that, again, beyond my understanding, ended up with a song that sounds amazing. The song's as headbanging as most of the rest of them. Just when I find myself shaking my head in disbelief at the bad lyrics in a song like Get a Life, the final third blows me away again with the great guitar work which reminded me of the last 1/3 of It'll be Okay from Chocolate Starfish.
