Music: The xx - Crystalised

Kristen and I are loving this record. It's like Tricky meets all of your favorite 80's and early 90's goth/progressive bands (The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and The Banshees, etc.) The Songs are relatively simple and some show signs of modern R&B influences on the vocals which raises a caution flag for me, but all in all it works together alarming well. It's passed the repeat listen test and is now moving into the obsessive listening phase.

Pitchfork has a review and the whole record streaming via Lala:
