12 days ago the XX finally released their long awaited 3rd studio album “I See You” on Young Turks.
The album announced by the amazing singles “On Hold” and “Say Something Loving” became an instant hit worldwide and it climbed the top of UK album charts last week.
Below you can read the album reviews by some of the biggest music media and newspapers:
“The xx have never been so unguarded, either emotionally or in their musical ambitions. The result is as haunting as ever.” Rolling Stone
“I See You…sounds like an attempt to incorporate everyone’s talents into a new version of their sound, one true to their roots but richer and more varied.”
Best New Music, 8.4/10 Pitchfork
“On I See You, The xx have expanded their horizons without sacrificing any of the emotional intimacy that makes them one of the most compelling acts around.” 8/10 Uncut
The Independent – Album of the Week
The Observer – Album of the Week
“A cautious, quietly triumphant return.” 4/5 The Metro
“This is the sound of The xx growing up and examining how far they’ve travelled. I See You is more nuanced and upbeat than their previous records but, perhaps shrewdly, it enhances their blueprint rather than completely redrawing it.” 4/5 MOJO
