Somethings missing from the new material by C.S.S, I just can’t put my finger on what it is.
It may simply be that I’m bored of them maybe? Their last album was pretty rinsed over and over again. So that could be it?
Maybe its the loss of their 6th member bassist Ira Trevisan.
I’m just not sure really. But I am sure however, that the new album is a little on the weak side. A little on the serious side too. They’ve lost their edge for certain. Theres no more fun. Although you could argue that producing another album full of cheeky lyrics about dirty fingers in his bitches would get a little old too.
Lovefoxxx has definitely had singing lessons/been overproduced. That was my first thought. That’s not a bad thing obviously, she sounds good vocally. But as a front woman she was never about flawless vocals really..she has a presence which overcomes the need for that and concentrates more on making their gigs like a party for their fans. I just hope they don’t lose that aspect of their live performance, as that would be a shame.
All that said, “Left Behind” is a good track. Different. But good. Filled with really bitter, break up worthy lyrics, which I’m really enjoying at the moment. Definitely summer worthy. But as far as the rest goes..I doubt it’ll become the soundtrack to mine.
