Biography

Gabe Saporta was in the desert, contemplating his existence, when a cobra bit him on the neck. You’re thinking: Yeah right. If a cobra bit his neck he’d be dead. But that’s what happened. That moment, in the desert, while Gabe was clutching his neck in pain, hallucinating that the snake was schooling him on the dancefloor, was the inception of Cobra Starship. Not exactly the ...

Customer Reviews

I think this has to be one of the best songs on the album.
Kayla
Most of the songs are just fun to dance along to, obviously it's different than their past cds, but in a good way.
B. Padilla
This has been on high rotation on my MP3 player and an excellent sing-along album for the commute home.

I like Cobra Starship. The group's music is usually very unique, fun, a fusion of punk, pop with a tinge of hip-hop and r&b. I hate to say it though but I really did not like 'Hot Mess'. Besides one or two tracks, the entire release feels very uninspired. It almost sounds like an entirely different group. When listening to this, I hear less Cobra Starship and more of a Fall Out Boy cd. The first track 'Nice Guys Finish Last' doesn't sound like the group at all, and one would think it was a cut from Fall Out Boy's last release. They even go so far as to have a track titled 'Pete Wentz is the Only Reason We're Famous'. In all, I summed that the main issue with this release is that it sounded as if they made too much of an attempt to be a commercial success and appeal to the main crowd (as with the lead-single 'Good Girls Go Bad') rather than sticking to their alternative roots.

The Bad: The music. There were fewer chances taken on this release than with the first two releases from the group. None of the songs, even after one-or-two listens stands out. To some degree, many of the songs sound alike on many levels. As stated earlier, I hear more Fall Out Boy-influences here and a less of that fun edge that set this group apart. Even the emo-inspired titles of the songs are less creative than they were with the last releases. Overall lacking musically and just outright boring.

The Good: 'Good Girls Go Bad' is a fun song that did, in some respects, remind me of their old songs. A few others, including 'The Scene Is Dead: Long Live the Scene' that sounds very retro and 80s inspired, were worth listening to one or two times.

In all, I was let down by this release. A Cobra Starship album is usually really good, unique and something worth keeping on repeat. But this ...

The first time I listened to this album I thought it was good...not great, but good. None of the songs really stuck with me, but I could tell I liked it. After listening to it many more times, I realized that its actually a great album with aspects of their last two albums worked in. I like upbeat music, but my favorite songs are the two tracks that are slower. The first song sounds a lot like "Womanizer" by Britney Spears (I'm guessing womanizer might have inspired the track a bit like when they did Hollaback Boy and I kissed A Boy). I think this is a really good buy, especially if you're a fan of their older albums. The album grows on you.

Most of the songs are just fun to dance along to, obviously it's different than their past cds, but in a good way. I hope people give this a chance, and not dismiss this band based just on the ery catchy single track.

I'm giving this 3.25 actually.

I loved Cobra Starship's first two albums. I would debate which one I liked the best. It was so hard to choose.

Not the case with this album.

When I first heard "Good Girls Go Bad," it was oh so radio friendly. Too radio friendly. I was really hoping that this wasn't the best on the album. But the song is catchy after a few plays, and I got into it. It is the perfect song to goof around to.

The album was just okay to me. I still think it is okay. I mean, I do like it a bit, and I play it (thought I didn't buy it for myself, it was a late birthday gift). It just doesn't measure up to the first two. It sounds almost like Cobra Starship, and they are one of my favorite bands, is trying to be more mainstream. I hate when that happens.

By far, the best song on the album for me is "Nice Guys Finish Last." Having read the other reviews, people seem to hate that track. But I'm a theatre person. It sounded great to me. I have a great idea for a video for it too. I'd love to pitch the video somehow. GGGB isn't the best, but sadly, one of the best. Compared to the previous albums though, it doesn't measure up.

There are some lyrics on the songs that are catchy enough to keep me listening. I do hope Cobra Starship goes back to their old songs. At least when they are in concert, they do older songs.

When I first gave it a listen in August, I would have given it 2.5 stars. With more listens, it improves. This isn't like Panic!'s "Pretty. Odd.," which I can't get into still, or whatever the hell the album Fall Out Boy released in 2008 was (didn't buy that one, and so glad too because it sucked). I can listen to it, and play it before dance class from time to time to get me ready to move.

Format: MP3 Music
American alternative band Cobra Starship created by Midtown bass/lead vocalist Gabe Saporta, guitarist Ryland Blackinton, bass player Alex Suarez, drummer Nate Novarro and keytar musician Victoria Asher return with their third album "Hot Mess".

Their third full-length album is their most exciting album yet!

The album kicks off with their groove-inducing track "Nice Guys Finish Last" which is just one hell of an opening track for the band. Catchy, addictive and an awesome opening track!

The second track "Pete Wentz is the Only Reason We're Famous" is either Saporta showing some love for Wentz or possibly the appreciation for the band getting to open for Wentz's band Fall Out Boy or giving thanks for their inclusion of FOB's "Citizens For Our Betterment" mixtape. Nevertheless, a pretty cool rock track. Although not an official single, the group showcased the song on their Youtube and MySpace site.

The third track features the band's first single off the album showcasing the vocals of "Gossip Girl" actress Leighton Meester for the track "Good Girls Go Bad" (produced by Kevin Rudolf and mega producer, "American Idol" judge and former Warner Bros. Records VP of A&R, Kara DioGuardi) which I absolutely enjoyed tremendously during the single's initial release.

Now whether or not Meester's involvement in the track will generate interest in her music career will remain to be seen.

Other standout tracks include "Hot Mess" which is just addictive and almost sports that old school 80's sound while "Living In the Sky with Diamonds" shows that the group can also deliver in the vocals category.
