- Angels / Chained by The xx
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 30 November 2012
I desperately want to be irritated by The xx. That second album is just more of the same but that’s fine by me. I’d get more angry if they TV On The Radio’d it by over egging puddings and ruining their once-distinctive sound.
Tracks like this one exemplify all of what is good about them. The lack of dynamics or production values works to their advantage as we all know that all you need in life is a glacial guitar line and a heartfelt vocal to get an emotional reaction and despite its brevity it does all it has to do with a minimum of fuss.
On the flip we get another tune ‘Angels’ which features the usual boy/girl vocals and a slight dubstep tinge to the beats. It all works rather well and you can’t argue with the quality. You could query the necessity of this release as both tracks appear to be on the album...an outtake or a live track would be nice.
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
