The xx debut album xx was released in 2009. I have been a fan since the first time I heard them. Their blend of indie pop and dream pop is perfect. I like Romy Madley Croft‘s vocals and especially when Oliver Sim joins in with her. And to make it even better Jamie Smith aka Jamie xx is a genius of a musician.
My favourite songs are “Fantasy”, “Shelter”, and “Crystalised”.
Is it just me or does “Infinity” sound like a Chris Isaak song? And why wasn’t he included in the list of 1001 Albums? The song is probably my least favourite, yet it is still a decent song.
OMG! “VCR” sounds like a David Bowie song. I think it reminds me of “Heroes”.
Overall, i like the whole album. It was a great debut album. I love the vocals from Sim and Croft. 9.5/10.
