Nobody expects bands as bratty as CSS – whose past titles include "Music is My Hot Hot Sex" and "Fuck Everything" – to mature. Their music is punky, clubby, intensely annoying and other qualities their fans will describe as "fun," but therein lies the band's integrity: They tend to stay out of the middle of the road. Still, the relative professionalism of Planta – executive produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek – plays mostly to their weaknesses: Candy like "Girlfriend" and the quasi-reggaeton "Hangover" (a Tim Armstrong co-write) zip by, but forced into slower material, frontwoman Lovefoxxx freezes up and the band behind her sounds awkward – a teenage response after all.
