I don't know what that has to do with anything. You asked a question, and I gave an answer.

Re: thoughts on Cobra

Blue Milk is one of my favourites off this album. It could have been even longer as far as I am concerned.

Italian Space Shoes Continuum is magical. One of those rare songs that can bring you to a different realm.

Fuses is a bit jarring and a bit out of place.


This is a night album. It is meant to be played at night. A hot summer night.

Blips, Drips and Strips pisses off my friends. they get all eye-rolley whenever it comes on. I refuse to turn it off.

I think Fuses serves as a very honest warning for what you're about to encounter. no beating around the bush with this one. smoking kills and Cobra overwhelms.

Le Aimes Des Memes is a really awesome b-side. I'm surprised it's not mentioned more here.


Why would you friends be pissed off at BDS?
The soundscape is very dramatic and the harmony of the instrument is right on target.

Fuses, even though I don't listen to it the way like I used to ( play it 50+ a day, still remains as one of my favorite of the Lab. It is a tune that way beyond its time, and still sound very very modern to me.

Le Aimes Des Memes is indeed, a great one. I always feel like going into hazy maze when I listen to it.

I don't think he asked a question in what you quote from.

Re: thoughts on Cobra

Just because it has a question mark on it doesn't make it one.

Oddly enough, having a question mark does indeed make it a question. Funny how punctuation works sometimes...

And yes, the part I quoted was a question.

Hmmm, it was more of a suggestion I would think. No? ;-)

Can't think of many records from 1999 that were that hot. The Fall's Marshall Suite springs to mind, although I reckon some of the dancier stuff from that probably sounds a bit dated now (not listened to it in ages, so I don't honestly know).

Avant Hard by Add N to (X) was great too. I loved Add N to (X).

What else came out in 1999? I forget.

Do rhetorical questions still get question-marks? Is there a method to punctuate rhetorically?

Wracket??!!
