CSS - Donkey (2008)

Rating:4.5/10
CSS continues to extend their records. Second album Donkey , which was produced by band member Adriano Cintra and mixed by Mark "Spike" (M.I.A., Massive Attack, and Bjork), cuts down listener in first half of the LP. They seem to be tired of being a band despite their name "tired of being sexy" (which means of CSS in Portuguese). Opening song "Jager Yoga" borrows heavily from Ladytron indie electronic sound. Crunching disco rhythms like the night club song "Let's Reggae All Night" also can disturb any person having knowledge about disco music. And while highligths of the record hard to pick here because of boring indie rock-disco combo, "Give Up" is another Ladytron-ish new recurrent CSS track. "Beautiful Song" proves that Donkey has very similar tunes with 604 which is one of the best Ladytron record.

This band tries to figure dance rock music behind Avril Lavigne-like vocals (Left Behind), and Donkey barely sounds good and cool. Some powerful songs like Move and I Fly can't save from harm whole record alone.

Highlights: Beautiful Song, Move, I Fly
CSS - Left Behind
