Product Description

Product Description

After two years of constant touring, a triumphant run at the best international festivals, an iPod advert, a most-watched You Tube video of all time, literally millions of myspace plays, - a baptism of fire by anyone's standards - they're back this Summer, with their second much anticipated album `Donkey'.

More structured, crafted and polished than its predecessor (2006's `Cansei de Ser Sexy'), though no less tough, street-ready, anthemic, and from the heart, their new record recreates the frenetic energy of CSS's renowned live shows. Equal parts dance party, urban circus, and out-and-out chaos, the band's unaffected, unbridled joy in performance is for real and for you.

Amazon.co.uk

In the run up to the release of Donkey, second album by Brazilian electro-pop hedonists CSS, there was talk in interviews of their desire to become more professional and indeed to be seen doing so after the immense success of their haphazard debut--to such an extent that it led to Ira Trevisan's being pushed from the group when she chose to learn French and design clothes ahead of formally brushing up her rudimentary bass guitar skills in between albums. To anyone already swept up by CSS's giddy, ramshackle blitz of the world's festivals and clubs over the last couple of years though, that plan sounded as rational as enforcing less movement on dance floors. Thankfully they've clung to many of the feisty characteristics and flourishes that made them a ball of elastic irresistibility in the first place, even allowing for regimentation and grown-up production values. The pigeon-English aerobic poetry (in that it rhymes) remains and is as blindly motivational as ever, while Lovefoxxx's endearingly eager squeals and quasi-raps keep the spirit well afloat. The tight guitar lick and infectious new-wave choruses of "Rat Is Dead (Rage)" and "Give Up" are vintage Elastica, "Left Behind" is all Heaven 17 synth-pop with a vibrant tropical kick and the 80s Madonna meets Daft Punk smoothness of "Move" is a spotless delight. While the vaguely anarchic glee of their debut is largely bleached out, one positive repercussion is that filler went with it. --James Berry

I cant help but be a little miffed at the amout of middling-fair reviews of this album by the press.
Maybe its not as surreal and daring as their debut but its still better than half the generic indie and pop out there today!
Lovefoxx oozes sex as she sings and the songs are wicked! Higlights include Rat is dead, reggae all night, left behind, air painter, believe achieve and move.
Seriously ignore those reviewers are expected "Cansei De Ser Sexy" part 2 and enjoy a great fun album!

A slicker and more generic album than the first CSS effort, this is nonetheless a decent stab at building on the success of the electrifying debut. There is nothing as urgent and as sexy as 'Music is my Hot Hot Sex' on Donkey but songs such as 'Rat is Dead (Rage)' and 'Left Behind' are funky enough to carry the album. Overall, CSS are not quite as sexy as they were two years ago but they're having a damn good stab at it.

The self-titled debut album from Cansei de Ser Sexy contained stand-out memorable tracks that hooked you on first listen. "Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above", "Off The Hook" and of course "Music Is My Hot Hot Sex" come to mind.

The first play of Donkey doesn't deliver anything with the same deliciousness. It's good and worth a few more plays but it is completely eclipsed by the stellar first album.

I don't really understand why this album received such an under-whelming response, unlike their debut which was welcomed as the best thing since sliced bread. I love Donkey just as much as their first offering - it's more grown up, more honed and you can tell that as a band they've grown in confidence. I can't understand how one person said that 'the party is over' ...I'm listening to the album right now and it's just as lively and infectious as their first. It's such a shame that Donkey has been poorly rated by many rewiers in the press and online, because this album is just full of brilliance - how anyone cannot love 'Move', 'Left Behind', 'Air Painter' and, frankly, every track is totally beyond me! I'd suggest to any CSS fans who are wary of Donkey to ruddy buy it and discover its magic.

On first listen I thought this album was ok but nothing spectacular. A few listens later and once I had got the sound of the first album out my head I really got into it. It is certainly more polished than their debut and it is more poppy but the end result is a collection of fantastic pop songs.

The album reminds me of The Sounds and Metric but retains something that is definately CSS.

Well I have to agree with Hot Angel and say that the number of bad or indifferent reviews I've read for this album in the press do not do it justice. The new material is great, and the added production polish does not detract from the quality of the songs or the CSS sound. Ignore the naysayers - if you like CSS and the first album then buy this one too!
