Re: thoughts on Cobra

can you think of another album that has similar criticisms, but still has so much merit (I do think Cobra is glorious).

King Crimson's "Lizard" comes to mind. Again, this is probably the KC's album most removed from rock
(along with "Islands"), but I think the combination of guest horn players as well as Keith Tippett's complex pianos (both acoustic & electric) mesh quite well with Fripp's mellotron. Again there's a bit of a free-jazz influence present and for the three-chord guitar rock crowds the instrumentation may be just as dull as that of Cobra, but I guess I'm quite a sucker for this avant-jazzy bits incorporated into artier end of pop music.
