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.

5 stars all the way

Jamie xx is an awesome producer! I don’t think I even have to explain the 5 stars.

Evocative, mesmerizing

Probably one of my favorite albums, especially while driving. It's remarkable how it grows on you with each new listen. Sleep Sound, SeeSaw and Girl are highlights. But there's something about There's Going to Be that's surprising, and strangely necessary to the whole experience.
