Even though most folks who wanted to hear this album have long since done so when it leaked some weeks back we still wanted to point you in the direction of an official stream before its September 11th due date on Young Turks. There is a lot of anticipation surrounding The xx’s sophomore LP, Coesxist, and for good reason as their debut was truly an instant classic when it came out back in 2009. If anyone’s asking my opinion about the follow up, here it is. I think it’s ok, not great, not horrible just ok. We are actually divided here at Onomatopoeia, covering all spectrums, some of us love it, some of us hate it and then there is me right in the middle. For my money I wish it was a little more dancey, especially given Jamie’s work in club music in the time since the band’s debut, having established himself as an in demand remixer and producer. You can head over to NPR to give it a listen and form your own opinion, what say’s you love, hate or ok?
