    The Dave Sitek-produced Planta keeps things light and easy. [No. 100, p.53]

    They’ve used the time to come to terms with the loss of Cintra and create a sonic identity beyond his input, and it turns out that they didn’t really need him, and, just maybe, he was stalling their progress.

    The Brazilian party inciters still diversify deftly on their fourth full-length, Planta. [Jul 2013, p.100]
  4. 50
    Even among these highs, the pairing of Lovefoxxx and Sitek has resulted in a few highly combustible selections which burn themselves out quickly and with little lasting effect.

    Sitek lends the band some nice slow-burning electronic atmosphere, but the songs lack hooks and sometimes shift into cringey faux-reggae.

    It's hard not to think that CSS's moment has passed. [Jul 2013, p.101]

    The Brazilians’ fourth is a tuneless, tiresome rabble of a record that does just that [make you feel glum].
