The xx: Intro, Crystalised, You've Got The Love и другие песни. The xx. The New Album, Out Now. The xx are a coed London trio whose 2009 debut album seemed to come out of nowhere. A note-perfect distillation of super-slow indie pop swathed in ambient reverb and sparkling minimalism, it hardly seemed the kind of thing that four 20-year-olds would come up with, but they did, from songwriting to production. Business as usual for the U. pop scene, maybe, but rarely does a band this subtle get anointed as such a hot property. Influenced by slowcore mope-rockers Low as well as the 2-step scavenging electro-poppers Junior Boys. The xx from United Kingdom. The top ranked albums by The xx are xx, Coexist and I See You.

Buy vynil new from Amazon, the B side has some scratches and is noisy, the track B1 is distorted and jump in one point. Bad press!
Amazing audio quality on this release. Nice bass on "Fantasy" on side 2. Strong inner groove distortion only on track A6 "Hot like fire". All other tracks, including B6 are playing fine.
My copy sounds great too...no problem...great album and great band
Great album but quality of the sound is bit disappointing, not only mentioned S problem...
As others have mentioned, this LP contains really strong problems with disorted S. Some tracks(Hot Like Fire) are totally unplayable! Do NOT buy!
Only just realised that the Jamie xx covers are a quarter of the X
I have to play this record with a really strong weight on the cartridge (shure m97xe on technics mk2) otherwise it's all distorted. I bought it mint at Virgin some years ago.Anyone else as this problem ?
Does anybody else experience terrible sililance on this LP? Especially on the song Hot Like Fire on side A?"[...]You can't reSSSSiSSSSt,KiSSSSS, kiSSSSS, and kiSSSSS and kiSSSSS and kiSSSSS.You shouldn't have SSSSSSSaid "take our time".[...]But if you wait on me, I promiSSSSSSe you it won't be long."
me too.. female vocals particularly.
Yes, I have the same problem on my copy :(
