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.

After their fantastic first album, i was wondering how CSS would follow it up. New rave is over and one of its biggest purveyors needed to step up.

The album is a bit slicker & definitely more "produced", however there is still a playful nonchalance about many of the songs. Anyhow, it was always going to be difficult being as playful as 'Meeting Paris Hilton' from the first album.

Donkey is easy to listen to and has plenty of songs that will get stuck in your head. Highlights include 'Jager Yoga', 'Move' & 'Believe Achieve'. A decent follow-up from a really good band. Worth a buy.

This album really is a disappointment, although Love Foxxx's vocals are still enchanting and unique she seems to be singing completely banal, meaningless lyrics. This wouldn't matter quite so much if the music were interesting, but it really is quite drab. After a while a few of the songs might get stuck in your head, but there's no real joy in hearing them again. It feels very much like an album made because it was their job to do so, not because they had any burning desire or exciting ideas to share.
