The XX continue the Dark Nightmarish Dream Pop of their Debut album and expand to a new horizon.,
This review is from: Coexist (Audio CD)
Lets face it...when you launch such an album like XX back in late 2009....not only that but really make a staple of infamy and a signature sound and direction it is practically impossible to follow up....but Coexist manages to expand and broaden that sound of their debut album and create a new very nightmarish clubby universe.
There are some truly beautiful moments to be had with Coexist...some complain that its "too much of the same" or "not expanded enough" etc.etc, but to be honest why would you perfect perfection? and Jamie XX i truly feel has brought in those club influences from his solo work in 2011 into the band and it allows for ventures into some new territory.
A brilliantly dark album with some truly beautiful moments.
