You Make Me Feel... featuring Sabi


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 ...

2.0 out of 5 stars Truly a 'Hot Mess' August 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun! September 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album...Grows on You August 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Track-by-Track Review January 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
**Originally posted on "#1 Hits From Another Planet" - 8/10/09**

I didn't think this group would be around this long, let alone make their catchiest album three years from their inception. A surprising triumph.

1. Nice Guys Finish Last - Borrowing from Adam Ant (woohoo!) and big band, this is probably the most unique track on the record and my choice for second single. The chanting is utterly addictive, and it's easily among the poppiest things the band has recorded. 10/10

2. Pete Wentz Is The Only Reason We're Famous - I hate these long "clever" titles that have little to do with the song, but luckily the track is actually very good. It opens aggressively, but soon segues into a calmer verse and a funny, catchy chorus. 8/10

3. Good Girls Go Bad - If ever a track would propel them into superstardom, this would be it. The first single, and an excellent choice, sounds like it's produced by RedOne, though it's not. Leighton Meester adds some much-appreciated spunk to the primarily dance track. Sinfully catchy. 10/10

4. Fold Your Hands Child - This starts as straight-up synthpop before chugging into a rockier chorus. I'm especially fond of the verses here, which have an accomplished subtlety to them that's missing on some of the other tracks. 9/10

5. You're Not In On The Joke - Another possible single choice, there's an almost Michael Jackson feel to the verses--very funky. The chorus is a total singalong. If only they would have cut the odd shouty bits at the end, it would be perfect. 9/10

6. Hot Mess - The verses, again, are very interesting, with some nice vocals, but the chorus isn't quite up to snuff in my opinion. It's a little silly and can verge on annoying. Certainly not bad, but not a favorite either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gosh, your a HOT MESS December 31, 2010
By Kayla
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The song list is amazing and Gabe Saporta's voice is a mix of angel and sex. The electronica feel makes the music come alive and the collabs are even better than life itself.

1. Nice Guys Finish Last- the beginning drums and laser sounds makes it quite amazing. Sorta of a Britney Spears sound? OH YEAH! Womanizer background music as their own! And yes, all I want is a bad boy, Victoria.
2. Pete Wentz Is The Only Reason We're Famous- A big difference from the first song but still COBRAIZED. Yelling verses help the idea of the change.
3. Good Girls Go Bad (featuring Leighton Meester)- pleazzzzzzz, Leighton stick with gossip, girl!
4. Fold Your Hands Child- Still not traditional Cobra, but beautiful song in the intro verses. Makes you reminise about childhood!
5. You're Not In On the Joke- Slower, but still a club jam. Not one of the best, but definatly not one of the worst. Different Cobra, different feel.
6. Hot Mess- True Cobra..... is there anything else to it?
7. Living In The Sky With Diamonds- OMG! Lovin this song! Can't get over the fact that this song didn't chart!
8. Wet Hot American Summer- Cute sound and the electronics are pure.
9. The Scene Is Dead; Long Live The Scene- Amazing, makes your heart swoon and want to fall in love with Gabe (if you haven't already). I think this has to be one of the best songs on the album.
10. Move Like You Gonna Die- Sounds like CS. The fast paced rant. The counting insures you know exact what beat your one. Victoria's electric keyboard in the background sets the mood.
11. The World Will Never Do (featuring B.o.B)- Before B.o.B was a household name, he was still B.o.B.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good.
I would have to say 'Good Girls Gone Bad' is my favourite song on the cd, it makes you want to dance around to the beat, while the rest while good, sort of fade out behind it. Read more
