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.
