Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered Collectors Edition of the 1983 debut album from the Hard Rockers fronted by future Survivor vocalist Jimi Jamison. Cobra wrote great songs, featured a world class vocalist, had first class management holding the business reigns and, best of all, the colossal firepower of Epic Records right behind them. Unfortunately, Jamison jumped ship before they could prove their worth. Rock Candy.
 

CD Reviews

Unrealized potential
G. Richards | Overland Park, KS | 02/09/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is a remastered edition of the original 1983 album by a short-lived band. Cobra, which released only one album before breaking up, actually contained some talented musicians. Vocalist Jimi Jamison went on to work with Survivor, while guitarist Mandy Meyer had played with Krokus and would go on to work with Asia. Unfortunately, the potential was largely unrealized here. The outcome is competent, but rather non-descript hard rock. There is nothing bad, but nothing really outstanding either. Also, the price is a bit stiff for a CD that runs 38 minutes."
