    CSS's La Liberacion offers a much more serviceable blend of their original X-Ray Spex-style doughty amateurism with their slicker, sleeker electropop self.

    La Liberacion's digi-pop breakdowns, reggae-tinged zaps and punky power-pop will please anyone who wrote the band off after 2008's too-glosy Donkey. [Sep 2011, p.112]

    They may not be as confident here as they were on their first album, but La Liberacion's best moments are direct and fun, and there's no shame in that.

    La LiberaciĆ³n is so fixated on exhibiting its sense of fun that it forgets how to finish ideas in the process.

    Disappointingly, the second half of the album loses some of the sting. [Jul 2011, p.79]

    the atypical sincerity of La Liberacion suggests that something--whether the burdens of relentless sexiness or beating pop music at its own game too soon--still does.

    They fail to relocate it [their exuberance] on the follow-up, which if anything, is even drearier. [Sep 2011, p.104]

    It has definitely really good songs and I don't know if I like it more than Donkey. Great collaborations SSION/Ratatat City Grrl/Red Alert.It has definitely really good songs and I don't know if I like it more than Donkey. Great collaborations SSION/Ratatat City Grrl/Red Alert. There at least 7 solid songs the ones mentioned before and Hits me like a rock, I love you, Rhythm to the rebels, **** Everything, You could have it all. And the other's are not bad--I don't know why critics gave it such a low score, did they even listen to it? Expand
