EDITORS’ NOTES

A wondrous debut from the house producer of indie-pop romantics The xx, In Colour is the sound of dance music heard at helicopter height: beautiful, distant, and surprising at every turn. Whether summoning old-school drum ’n’ bass (“Gosh”) or dancehall-inflected pop (the Young Thug and Popcaan double feature “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”), the mood here is consummately relaxed, more like a spring morning than a busy night. Laced throughout the thump and sparkle are fragments of recorded conversation and the ambience of city streets—details that make the music feel as though it has a life of its own.

Best in Class

Finally a full album! Jamie XX is a modern day Beethoven. Words are pretty useless at this point...

Great for XX fans and new comers alike

"In Colours" has a very fresh sound with a large array of instruments painted throughout this album. This is a sign of what's to come for the XX's new album and it welcomes new fans to Jamie XX and the XX as well.
