Product Description

Quirky Brazilian sextet C.S.S. (aka Cansei De Ser Sexy) were one of the surprise success stories of 2006. Launched on an unsuspecting public, their day-glo modern Psychedelia cut a swathe through the identikit angular indie-pop clogging the U.K. music papers. Deliberately attention-grabbing song titles such as "Meeting Paris Hilton," "Music Is My Hot Hot Sex," and "CSS Suxxx" also helped to increase coverage. The dance/art-rock of their full-length debut, Cansei De Ser Sexy, drew favorable comparisons with Har Mar Superstar and LCD Soundsystem.

Different but excellent! July 23 2008
By C McWilliams - Published on Amazon.com
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!

CSS Reach for the Masses June 7 2009
By Rogue H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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.

B52s redux? Oct. 21 2008
By man ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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.

Matured and Improved Jan. 24 2010
By Richard C. Mente - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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.

Excellent April 7 2009
By C. Cain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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.
