Through all the pool parties and sun block, the one CD that must be in everyone's summer music collection is ¡Viva la Cobra! After their fist CD, While The City Sleeps, We Rule The Streets, and cameo songs on TMNT: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Snakes On A Plane, great thing were expected of Cobra Starship. With their newest work, an unexpected whirlwind of neon and 80's sound was released, a new direction but still great. Behind all the manic energy, a sarcastic look at the overly made-up Hollywood scene peeks through. This fusion of Justin Timberlake esque rhythm with Nintendo (music) like catchiness will make you sing and dance from sunup until sundown.
