iTunes Review

Following an abundance of accolades and awards garnered for their 2009 eponymous debut album, British indie trio The xx chose not to deviate from the band’s stylistic blueprint for their 2012 follow-up Coexist. But when played back-to-back, there is a noticeable consolidation here—by stripping down instrumentation and production flourishes heard on their preceding album, these songs sound stronger, making for an immediate staying-power. The opening “Angels” infuses barebones dream-pop with subtle slivers of R&B as Romy Madley Croft inflects softly, like a young Tracey Thorn singing to a gray Sunday morning from under her bed sheets. “Chained” follows with Jamie Smith’s beats slowly catching up to the rhythm, like a cold motorbike’s engine warming to its idle. But it’s the unsettling anti-duets sung by Croft and Oliver Sim that prove to be the most gripping throughout Coexist. With a palpable tension between them, it’s as if they’re singing on opposing sides of a bedroom wall. Even when their harmonies are closer (“Swept Away”), The xx further their mastery of pulling beauty from restraint.

Customer Reviews

The xx have done it again.

This is the best record to be release this year. Their best as well.
I like how it can be relatable in two very different ways.

A record for the loved and the lonely.


Every song sounds exactly the same. Wayyy too slow. The lyrics are great as always but the music makes me wanna fall asleep. Really hoped theyd out do their last album :/

A Masterpiece. Phenomenon. Remarkable!

Wow! I didn't expect The xx to blow me away like this. Every songs possesses a n elegant euphony you rarely find in modern music, it makes you feel infinite. Jamie xx's production elevates the mellifluous feel of the album and Romy & Oliver sultry voices give a deepening impact that feels like a earthquake in your heart. If anything this album deserves a Grammy nomination, or perhaps even a win. Standout Tracks: Fiction, Reunion, Sunset, Tides, Swept Away, Our Song, and Unfold. All in all, this album is joyous blow, that will kick your soul so deep in depth you'll drown from a this audible masterpiece. P.S. If you like this album, give Beach House's Bloom a listen I'm sure you'll feel the same way.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Atmospheric English indie pop group the xx formed in London in 2008 around the talents of Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, Baria Qureshi, and Jamie Smith, when the bandmembers were still in high school. Captivating and cool, the group cites influences that run the gamut from R&B (Aaliyah and Rihanna) to classic alternative rock (the Cure and the Pixies). Built around the duel vocals of Croft and Sim, the group's signature brand of moody, soulful indie rock first appeared on the public radar in early...
