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.

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.
