I have a feeling, yes.

I was wondering when / if you were going to bring your lazy ass down to this thread to check the status of that album.

I would say #13 out of 98 on a list like this is doing pretty good. Higher than you expected, or just right?

If that brings them even as close as Philly I'd have to strongly consider going.
If this is close to true, I hope its in 2011, because I'd be able to go back east for a Cobalt show.

I was expecting it to be right around there. I'm pleased that others really liked it, I love that band. I might be checking them out on Monday, they're playing with Suidakra.

This part of your review on Gin has had me thinking quite a bit. I loved Gin, and it has grown on me extensively since I first listened to it, which was in Novemberish, but I still don't know how to describe it. I like a few albums better, Metazoa and Crack the Skye being two of them, and I wouldn't call them perfect. But something about Cobalt seems deserving.

Interesting comment. I guess I would define "perfect" as meaning "it contains everything I would want an album to contain, and it's extremely well executed." As far as what it contains that I like, there's the excellent musicianship, wicked good riffs, extreme lyrics, scary good vocals, dark atmosphere, and most of all an unrelenting intensity that lasts for a period of time that most albums can't sustain for even half that long. It's just so got damn dark and wicked, never gets boring, and fires on all eight cylinders at top speed for over an hour. It's like watching the Lakers and the Cavs in Game 7 of the NBA playoffs (which is going to happen this year....mark my words! ) - it just leaves you drained at the end. You almost can't hit "play" again after it's over (notice I said "almost" ).

I completely understand the reaction. The album for sure had me on extremes the whole way through, but I guess I sort of consider a perfect album to be something that touches on all extremes. Gin didn't necessarily do that to me.

Cavs will only need four games to beat the Lakers.
