  1. Sometimes the former Midtown singer's snark falls flat, as with the title 'Pete Wentz Is the Only Reason We're Famous' or the part where the singer brags about his ass. But Saporta does have some pop gifts, apparent on the disco 'Living in the Sky With Diamonds.'
  2. There’s only so much nudge-nudge, wink-wink you can take before you want to shove a sock in the dude’s mouth. On the bright side, they stand a good chance of scoring a few top-40 hits with this dreck.

    As someone who liked Cobra Starship when I was younger, I thought Hot Mess was one of their best albums; providing the catchy and fun tunesAs someone who liked Cobra Starship when I was younger, I thought Hot Mess was one of their best albums; providing the catchy and fun tunes that I had come to expect from the band. Looking back on the album, the lyrics are definitely a little cheesy and corny, and the production a little uneven. Despite flaws, Hot Mess remains one of Cobra Starship's stronger albums, fulfilling the fun nature seen in previous works. Full Review »
