    How does this piece of crap have a metacritic page and Thrice's "Beggars" - album of the YEAR by FAR isn't reviewed ANYWHERE.

  1. Hot Mess is a complete success and shows that the band could possibly grow past the comedy and become something else entirely.
  2. 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.'

    Hot Mess is flush with other stupid-smart highlights, including 'Pete Wentz Is the Only Reason We’re Famous.'
