    A little poppier, still good and distinctive

    The xx gained attention and a devout following with a quiet, stark, atmospheric sound. I See You, the band's third record, has a slightly fuller, more standard sound. The band has stepped a bit away from what made them special but I See You isn't slick and cynical. And I'm all for catchy songs like On Hold, I Dare You, Say Something Loving and A Violent Noise. I See You is a good, confident sounding record.

    An excellent addition to the Brit trio's catalogue

    After a five year absence (which is a lifetime in pop music), The XX returns with a more expansive sound. As usual for this group, the album unfolds slowly over repeat listens and requires close scrutiny. As the band members no approach their thirties, "I See You" is both a mature statement and a clear evolution. It's a safe early bet for one of the major releases of 2017...

    Not as good as the Debut but better than Coexist

    I loved the XX debut album, pretty much any song I found myself listening to on repeat. Their second album, Coexist, was pretty much a flop for me. I've listened to I See You several times now and there are a few winners on the CD. But they still haven't been able tap back into the simple brilliance that was their debut album.

    4.5 stars, but you can't do that here

    Jamie xx has learned a lot about the sonic palette from doing his solo record, and it shows here in the variety of settings he creates for Romy and Oliver. The effect is not the intimate whispers of the first record, but that of group coming into its artistic maturity. Recommend highly.

    I’ve been following The xx since their first LP and was suuuper not into this album at first, but it’s grown on me since the first couple listens. Def more upbeat than the first two releases, but it makes sense regarding their progression.

    More Dense and More of the Same

    There's not a lot to separate this album from the previous two XX albums but what seems to be a bit more technical prowess in the studio. The album feels like a more dense continuation of what XX has been doing for some years now. Nothing new, just better.

    I actually have listened to this CD at least once a day since I bought it when it cam out. "Say Something", "Violent Noise", "Hold On", and "I Dare You" are my favorite songs off of the CD. Its upbeat, deep, and some songs you kind of have to read into.

    I had heard a song by The XX on the TV show PERSON OF INTEREST and wanted to hear more so, I bought a CD; and The XX did not disappoint! "I See You" is full of terrific songs suitable for every mood. I highly recommend their music.
