Editorial Reviews

Brazil's CSS release their follow-up to 2006's "Cansei de Ser Sexy" ("I got tired of being sexy"). They've toured worldwide a number of times with the likes of Gwen Stefani, Ladytron, Klaxons, and Diplo, and played festivals from Coachella, Pitchfork, and Virgin to Reading, Benicassim, Roskilde, and beyond. "Donkey" is tough, street-ready, and recreates the frenetic energy of their live shows. Equal parts dance party, urban circus, and out-and-out chaos.

LOVED this set by those zany Brazillian girls (and guy)! Very different than their first release, as the first reviewer explained better than I can, but I'm a big believer in letting artists explore different sounds with every new project (a la Beck or David Byrne). They do not disappoint. So tight, so inventive, yeah a little mainstream, but still rockin', good timin', beautiful CSS. Love 'em!

After releasing their first (self titled) album, CSS in many ways was the epitome of indie music, because they were wholly unique. The electronica, reggae, and disco-inspired music featured raw foul-mouthed lyrics performed by the sexy voiced lead singer Lovefoxx. Understandably, indie fans had very high expectations for CSS leading into their sophomore effort.

Although the new album is undeniably catchy, CSS seem to have lost their mojo. The raw screeching lyrics and gyrating rhythms of the band's prior work are now replaced by vanilla lyrics and studio-smoothed beats. While the band's first album felt entirely spontaneous, 'Donkey' feels just the opposite: over-produced and deliberately aiming for a broader audience.

I enjoy this album but the stark originality of their earlier music is all but gone.

heard this in borders last nite (from a distance) and thought it was some new cd by the B52s. what a surprise! donkey?? what i heard was really punchy and fun and well produced. the cut down guitar lines, like those of Ricky Wilson, are outright slashing! all in all, a good time is to be had.

As much as I really enjoyed CSS's self titled ablum, Donkey shows that the band has somewhat mellowed; which is certainly not a bad thing in this case. Instead of the hard hitting chords and references that not everyone may get (I'll admit, I had to look up a few things such as "Death From Above," aparently a Canadian band from the 80's). Donkey still has some hard hitting songs (I Fly), but they have included some great duets (Jager Yoga, Beautiful Song) that just flow very well. While the first album showed some angry youthful rebellion, Donkey seems more reflective and less agressive. with the transition from CSS to Donkey, I am looking forward to the next evolution of CSS music on the next album, but if it comes out with the same rythem and flow of Donkey, I will not complain.

CSS is one of the most fun bands to listen to. I am amazed at the songs that they write. And this album is no exception. The highlight of the album for me is "Move". Donkey is a cd I can listen to over and over again. You can never be in a bad mood listening to this cd.

A few years back, I'm flipping through the pages of a music magazine when I happen upon an article proclaiming a practically unknown Brazilian band named Cansei de Ser Sexy, or CSS, to be the greatest thing since sliced bread (more or less). Being the blindly-led sheep that I find myself to be when it comes to music, I check out their debut, self-titled album, listen to it a few times, and set it aside. I forget about it. And then, like most, I see that dang iPod Touch commercial featuring the unquestionably intoxicating "Music is My Hot, Hot Sex" and I'm hooked. But just on that one song. For as praised as CSS was, I just never gave it the chance it deserved.

For their second album, Donkey, the raucous Brazilians are back, once again trying to party their way into my heart. Though my first listen was rather un-noteworthy (I was admittedly, pretty distracted), every listen since then has been an exciting, infectious affair that I just can't get enough. The punchy drums and bouncy bass line that heralds the start of "Jager Yoga" drew me into what has quickly become my favorite song on Donkey. The mononymous Lovefoxxx shelves singing for a more energetic, in-your-face styling of vocalization - sounding something like a subdued cheerleader. Her declaration of "We didn't come into the world/ to walk around/ we came here/ to take you out," is unbelievably catchy, and listeners will undoubtedly find themselves shouting right along with her.

But for as catchy as CSS has always been, they've also spent the majority of their time straddling the line between enchantingly obnoxious and downright annoying, rarely crossing over to the dark side. On first single, "Rat is Dead (Rage)," however, Lovefoxx's vocals are highly off-putting.

I like this disk. I saw one reviewer compare them to Blondie... OK, but I thought that they sounded more like No Doubt - fun party music.

This is supposed to capture their "live" electricity, and I look forward to them getting up to the Philly area some time.

I'm totally addicted to this album. I've listened to it everyday since I've purchased. From the first song to the last, this album is impressive. Great music indeed!
