-Congratulations to the XX for overcoming the hurdle of being 'just another over-hyped indie band' who fails to deliver, and is ultimately forgotten after their initial recording. They have done quite the opposite, delivering a solid, critically acclaimed follow-up LP. Having personally felt some stirrings traverse the great black chasm where my heart should be in 2012, this LP arrived just in time to capture some of those things I could not say, and it serves to comfort the savage beast as well. A perfect soundtrack for your long drive home.
