3.0 goodBroManCaptainGuySirDylan | August 21st 12

Still have no idea why this isn't called Coexxist.

17 Bumps | Bump

2.5 averageConscienceAC | August 21st 12

Doesn't measure up to the debut, but still a fine record. A lack of punchy beats really lets this one down.

3.5 greatG.M.B. | December 26th 12

It's not near as immediate, and is still way overshadowed by their debut, but Coexist can grow on you if given the opportunity.

5.0 classicVincent Magnet | August 21st 12

This is just utterly brilliant. Jamie XX makes this whole thing so special. The grooves on tracks like reunion
and swept away are so great. The atmosphere is way more prominent, similar to Beach House's Bloom but not
boring, gripping.

why is this album even being discussed? its headachingly boring

Covering all the bases here. (1) Continuation and maturation of principle sound, individualizes characters, gives more moments for each respective member to shine. Should please die-hards and new fans alike. 4/5 (2) Limp imitation, loses the charm of "conversation" the debut had, puts emphasis on each songwriter; no one seems to exist in the same room. 2/5 (3) Improvement over air-y debut, more focus on melody and space, ever more intricate drum patterns. Those guitar sounds, woof. 3.5/5 (4) Same Band Same Album 2.5/5

Stripped, naked, yet oh so captivating. Album is magical.

Bump

0.0 Steoandnoodles | September 9th 12

I really liked the sounds and subtly of the music. The production is great and it'd be something I'd like to enjoy over multiple listens. What I didn't enjoy though is the song-writing and lyricism. The structures boil down to relatively bland and uninspired choruses that I feel lack the spark of the debut album. It's still a nice record to listen to without a doubt but the mixing, production and overall sound save it for me because I really don't care about the words in here. I still think it's a good record but not great.

Bump

4.0 excellentAskar S Imam | September 7th 12

At first listen, it doesn't seem as expansive as their debut. But once you understand it isn't trying to be, the dreamily haunting and chillwave sounds take over. It's more moody, more hollow and more mature.

Bump

4.5 superbYeahYeahNo | September 7th 12

Not ready to call this a classic yet, but I'm pretty seduced. The growth in their sound is very apparent. Both Croft and Sim have expanded their talents, vocal deliveries being more dynamic and, in Sim's case especially, more melodically passionate than ever before. The skeletal guitar riffs remain, as does the stately bass, but they are backed by some incredibly specific and spacious sound design by Smith. Sure, you can complain about the future garage beats being lifted from what's very "now" in London at the moment, but being in the "now" of London has always been a part of The xx's sound. It's just what they are. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Bump

5.0 classicjackalope11 | September 5th 12

Fucking classic, 5/5. I have a feeling this album will be on my iPod for the many years to come. Everything was done so well, I can barely speak about it.

Bump

3.5 greatfarglesnuff | September 4th 12

not as good as debut but still enjoyable

Bump

4.0 excellentiGuter | August 26th 12

The xx prove themselves to be well rounded musicians by making a quieter and intimate experience.

Bump

3.5 greatMisguidedYouth | August 22nd 12

the simplicity felt natural on their debut, it seems like they tried too hard to keep that same sound on this
album.

Bump

4.5 superbShadester9 | August 22nd 12

The xx build on their sound in subtle but remarkable ways. The layering and grooves on tracks like Reunion really build on their repertoire. While the first was stark and wintry, this one feels much warmer in sound without losing the feeling of longing the leads create with their vocal harmony. The xx have crafted another fantastic and very unique record.
