Advantages: A beautiful and inspring album
Disadvantages: Some tracks a little sombre
What a fantastic album consisting of a melancoly remix and a beautiful voice of the main vocalist which is soft and yet comepllingly endeering.
XX are a band of indie style genre, and thier first album 'the young turks' won the mercury prize awards last year in 2010. They are a new band and yet I feel have not been advertised half enough and yet the moment someone hears them sing people fall for them instantly. The lyrics and tones of each song are very magically induced. They are romantic and poetic and the vocalist has a calming essence within her voice which instantly connects to the listener and enhances the tone of the music for all to release a peascful and yet subtle beated aspect.
The album has won various awards since its release including the NME award and as a band they are becoming more and more well known. There are 11 tracks on the album with my own personal favourites being shelter and night time which have both beautiful and inspiring lyrics concerning love and are most suitable for young couples in love!
The album can be purchased from main music stores as well as supermarkets and of course all online stores such as amazon and play.
Summary: A overwhelmingly exquisite album to suit many
