After the debut, the xx release an unambitious album that even after multiple listens, I just can't recall many moments at all. A disappointing release and just so painfully bland. But yeah like always, the production is nice.

Favourite tracks: Chained, Fiction, Swept Away

If you fault COEXIST for not braving much new territory, then at least give the mega-talented duo cred for providing a sparkling rejuvenation to a facet of electro-pop that has been worked into the ground by far-less inspired acts. (Admittedly, I pondered: if the entire album had taken unexpected flight the way that the rapturous "Swept Away" does, COEXIST might have been one for the books.)

After an astonishing debute, this was a real letdown, even if usually the second album can't live up to the high standards of the first. It's just bland and boring.
