5.0 out of 5 stars Review: CSS - Planta. Here comes the Summer! 13 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
Summer of 2013 starts here. The great survivors of a decade of hard partying have defied the odds and produced a lively, shimmering album, destined to drift out from apartment windows and traffic jams on a hot summer days.  Aaah, the Summer of 13, with Lovefoxx singing “Ooooh, what’s your name?” Those were the days.

Planta is the first album after the departure of the talented song writer Adriano Cintra. Rather than imploding in the wake of this, as CSS were fully expected to do, the girls grit their teeth and carried on, just as New Order, AC/DC and Pink Floyd did after their own personnel crises. And, like these illustrious predecessors, they have emerged stronger and more focused for it. At their recent gig in Hoxton, Lovefoxxx appeared on stage in a massive butterfly-like outfit - a symbol of the band’s pupation and transformation into the upbeat, creative group of Brazilian women you see today.

In the absence of Cintra, the band recognised that they needed a catalyst in the studio, and TV On The Radio's David Sitek stepped in and let the girls run riot in his LA house. The resulting album is fizzing with ideas, daring rhythms and unexpected melodic ventures. Photos of the band’s sojourn at chez Sitek show the fun being had there, and this infuses the record.

The songs are worth going through individually:  

Honey. A melodic opener which strong vocal, with unmistakable similarities to the hard beats of fellow crisis-survivors, New Order. Indeed, this number could easily have been written and sung by Bernard Sumner. “I wonder when I am going to see you again.”  Pure 80s Mancunian new dance, with a Brazilian twist – what’s not to like here?

Into the Sun. The sound of summer – a song about new beginnings.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLANTAAAAHHH 30 July 2013
By Len - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Awesome CD. ALL songs are amazing. It grows on you with multiple listens, too. Check this out if you want something new and different for your collection. Fav trax: Into the Sun, Dynamite and Too Hot. Good mix of electronic, pop, rock and new wave.
1.0 out of 5 stars Older albums are way better! 28 Feb 2014
By Kati - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not sure if they are in some experimental phase or what but this new album is pretty terrible. Donkey was the best album IMO. They went downhill form there. Donkey had songs with silly lyrics with nice melodies that were fun to rock out along to in the car. Not so on this album. Sorry CSS Suxxx, maybe next time.

It's pretty just okay. I've been a fan for years and while I appreciate the idea, not my favorite by them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly bland,avoid. 25 Nov 2013
By Alastair Hart-johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A great debut album, where did it all go wrong? This album is even worse than La Liberacion, which was terrible. Without Adriano Cintra, there really is not much going on. Avoid this at all costs. Buy the first two albums and remember them that way.
