Really, really good cd. A lot of people say it doesn't stand up to Sitting Army, but I think it's just as good. It's just not as much of a shock now I guess and it doesn't have the leadoff track that SA had. There's one or two duds where the song just kind of doesn't go anywhere, but the bridge almost saves it in one of them. But then it just goes back to what it was. Such good subject matter that isn't just political like Anti-Flag and Against Me. Subjects on how everyone should live their lives.

Being generally clueless and unhip, this is the first album I've bought by Cobra Skulls. This is their second album I believe and makes for some pretty good listening. It varies quite a bit in terms of styles, I hear Youth Brigade, One Man Army, Against Me, Clash influences, psycobilly & rockabilly, a latino element and just enough of it's own originality to take it above a lot stuff out there at the minute. Fast and slow song structures with great melodies and an always addictive chorus make this another great release from Red Scare. This band will be "signed" by a bigger label I would think for their next release, so buy this now before the secret gets out. The best tracks for me are 2 of the slower ones on here - Rebel Fate & Overpopulated. I will let this one sink in for a while then buy their other album and EP, good stuff.

It is the Cobra Skulls. It would feel unnatural to give anything other than 5 stars. I would like to point that, although the 2 star reviewer obviously didn't enjoy this, the subject matter has, in fact, somewhat changed. Sitting Army, for the most part, was a political album. "I'll Always Be a Cobra Skull" and "Cobra Skulls Jukebox" being the only personal songs. "Has Anybody Scene My Cobra?" being the only song about the music scene. American Rubicon has "Thicker Than Water", "Problems With Preconceptions", "Timing", "Dead Inside", "Agree to Disagree", and "One Day I'll Never" as far as personal songs go (not to mention the personal touch in the political songs "Rebel Fate" and "HDUI"). They also have 2 songs about the music scene, "Bad Apples" and "Back to the Youth". This album has 8/17 political/"preachy" songs as opposed to Sitting Army's 10/14 political songs. American Rubicon is more music for your money than Sitting Army, but I slightly prefer Sitting Army. Sitting Army is a more solid album all the way through although you could easily make an equally solid album of the same time length if you took out a song or two from American Rubicon. I don't really know what I'm getting at and I don't know how to tell you what I want to say, so I'll just say it: buy this. Buy everything that the Cobra Skulls offers for sale no matter what it is or how little you want it.

Wow. Everybody I talk to has such big expectations with this new record, but I think they pulled off the album of the year. So many good songs on here, it's almost 2 albums worth of hits. I also think it's great that Cobra Skulls and Red Scare put their money where their mouth is with the eco-friendly packaging. Cool gatefold CD with a nice big booklet. Great record.

First off....seriously...bands need to stop issuing CD's in crappy thin paper sleeves. Use the f'n jewel case. A CD is not a vinyl record. Now for the actual review...I can't get into this yet like I did "Sitting Army" or their 7" "Never Be A Machine". I have listened to this about 5 times now and I can't even really embrace any of the tracks yet...and the singer is starting to sound a little too "preachy" to me. I admire the fact that he took the time to write lyrics that are important to him, but change the subject matter...even if just a little bit.

In my humble opinion, Cobra Skulls are one of the best bands playing music today.

This, their seventh release (including the demo, EP, full-length, and three 7-inch records), is not their best work, but is still definitely worth picking up.

Favorite songs are: "There's A Skeleton In My Military Industrial Closet", "H.D.U.I.", "Muniphobia", and "Bad Apples", but perhaps the band's greatest song ever is featured on this album... "One Day I'll Never". Main instrument in that song... piano! It's fuckin' tough to go wrong with a piano (hell, even Tori Amos ain't that bad). Oh yeah, the lyrics to "One Day I'll Never" (well, ALL of their songs) are fucking beautiful as well.

Cheers Cobra Skulls! Cheers Red Scare! Cheers!

Oh, for some reason the CD package is 3/32 of an inch taller than it should be for a standard CD shelf... weird.
