Re: thoughts on Cobra

Thanks to this discussion, I've listened to Blue Milk a number of times, and enjoyed it more and more with every listen. However, I still think it would be better off on its own, leading off an EP or single, where it could define its own space and insist on being appreciated on its own terms.

I feel like listening to this tune in the middle of the album is sort of like stumbling across a Rothko painting in the middle of an eclectic art gallery. In a brightly lit room, surrounded by busy figurative paintings, Rothko looks like crap. His canvases just appear to be these meaningless empty expanses of color. However, in the proper context with careful lighting and a complete focus on his work, the effect is absolutely sublime. There just aren't any words to describe it.
