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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's two years since Cansei De Ser Sexy's album and by the sounds of Donkey, the party is well and truly over.

It's not that it's a dreadful album per se, although it does come close to being labelled that, just that if someone had specifically taken the trouble to eradicate everything that made CSS a thrilling proposition and at the same time wash away all traces of individuality they couldn't have done a much better than this donkey of an album. A cheap shot for sure, but one they set themselves up for.

It was perhaps expected that a professional polish would be added to the proceedings (lets not forget this was a band who when, in 2003, formed didn't know how to play any instruments) given the success of the previous album but it still comes as a huge disappointment that it's so generic and, well, normal.

Granted if you take the handful of decent tracks on here, the likes of Let's Reggae All Night and Move, and replaced the duff songs on the other album with them as a whole you'd have an absolutely brilliant album. But the new tracks would still be the ones that stand out as being a couple of notches below the likes of Let's Make Love (And Listen To Death From Above).

All in all, this is a hugely disappointing listen which has aimed for chart success but merely ended up removing everything that made you love CSS in the first place

It was always going to be hard to follow a debut album like theirs. But it just goes to show that better musicians and better production don't always make better music. If I had heard this album 1st I would never have bothered with CSS. They were never going to equal their debut, but this is definately weak and forgettable, which means it will sell well and CSS can progress further into mainstream commercial pop.
