The xx's newest single, Fiction, out of "Coexist", is a pretty nice song indeed, but the true gem in this 7" (which looks and sounds very good) is the B-side, "Together". It was the reason why I bought it, the reason to watch the credits to "The Great Gatsby", it's just an outstanding song, starting off very basic and minimalistic, like most of "Coexist", but then changing to an amazing orchestral piece led by Craig Armstrong that excells in every way.
Packaging: B (the interior, comprised by a folded sheet that contains the vinyl inside, without anything to hold it, was concerning upon receiving the item, since it is not safe for the record for it to be stored the way the package does so.
Audio quality: Haven't played it yet in its intirety, but it sounds very clear and pristine so far.
Recommendation: If you like the xx, this is a must. It is also a nice limited item, and a nice addition to your 7" collection, which (unfortunately) aren't very common with current music.
Overall rating: A, taking into account it IS indeed a 7" single with both sides full, just that.
