CSS-La Liberacion

21 Oct

CSS second album took all the great cleverness of album one and turned it into a badly wrtiten moody late 80s college rock mess.

And yet album number three, La Liberacion also feels sloppy…but sloppy in the good way. In fact the title track is one of my favorite singles, because it sounds like Menudo makes a punk record. Whereas the other tracks kind of sound like Menudo makes a new wave album.

(Yes I know Menudo actually made a new wave record,  which is noteworthy because it contains “Hold Me,” a bonkersly awesome underrated single of the period.)

Anyway, the album is ok, containing such platitudes as “I Love You. I Love You Too.” Much of it falls in the perfectly ok but forgetable category which places it in stark contrast with the title track and Lovefoxx’s recent turn with Kavinsky on the Drive Soundtrack.
