16. The xx - xx

October 6, 2009
Critic Score

23 reviews

The xx’s penchant for concision lends this material some seriously refreshing clarity, but it’d be a mistake to confuse their relative minimalism for some kind of aesthetic singularity.

The album’s accompanying trappings do little to dull its impressiveness or the band’s command of its lineage.

It’s a sophisticated work, delicately and meticulously crafted, and its effete pleasantness lends itself as well to Late Night performances as New Yorker coverage.

4. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

January 20, 2009
Critic Score
92
30 reviews

If Merriweather Post Pavilion represents its progenitors’ conscious choice to replicate the live experience—or at least craft something monumental and loud enough to be worthy of an outdoor festival—on record, then this is an album which, like any good concert, must be felt.

3. DOOM - Born Like This
