  1. Hot Mess is a complete success and shows that the band could possibly grow past the comedy and become something else entirely.
  2. We also love to party and this third effort from Cobra Starship screams ‘party’ right from blast off.
  3. If you don't finish this part record a hot mess, then you probably didn't have a good time.
  4. Only a music fan obsessed with the rules of authenticity and the requirements for lyrical profundity could find fault with the 11 odes to overload that make up Hot Mess.

    Hot Mess is flush with other stupid-smart highlights, including 'Pete Wentz Is the Only Reason We’re Famous.'
  6. Hot Mess has everything you hate to admit you love about Cobra Starship. [Sep 2009, p.104]

I expected nothing but anDue to the number of plays "Good Girls Go Bad" had, I was shocked to hear Hot Mess sound anything like pop-rock. I expected nothing but an ego-trip and found that Hot Mess is a solid and somehow modest album for the most part. Each song takes on it's own direction and has plenty of fun, yet at an artistic pace. I wouldn't say Hot Mess is Cobra Starship's best album, but I will say that it is their safest and most balanced album yet. Full Review »
