About this album

Coexist is the second studio album by English indie pop group The xx, released on 5 September 2012 by Young Turks. After a break from touring for their 2009 debut album xx, the group’s members began writing songs individually before recording the album during November 2011 to May 2012. Guitarist Romy Madley Croft and bassist Oliver Sim drew on personal experiences for their songwriting. For Coexist, The xx drew on the electronic dance music that occured when they were away on tour in 2010. It was produced by group member Jamie xx, who had pursued electronic dance on other projects and developed as a DJ prior to the album.

The album was promoted with two singles—”Angels” and “Chained”. The xx promoted the album with an international tour during June to September 2012. Upon its release, Coexist received generally positive reviews from music critics, who complimented Croft and Sim’s performances, Jamie xx’s production, and the music’s refinement of their sound. The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, the group’s first number-one album in the United Kingdom.

    Bit of a boring album. I am debating deleting it from my collection! wrist-slitting music.

    Ainda prefiro o primeiro álbum, mas esse não deixa a desejar. Só música boa!

    A few hooks and/or melodies here and there would have saved this album from being a total bore. But, no such luck. :(

    If anyone is interested, I did a cover of Angels, and I personally think it's pretty good. Listen to it, if you'd like!

    Aos que fizeram as wikis anteriores deste álbum: aja imparcialmente. E se não tem informações sobre o álbum, produções, antecedentes e/ou conclusão, deixem-no sem wiki e esperem que alguém bem informado recrie-a.

    Понравилась только первая песня, в остальном альбом берет только своей фирменной атмосферой.

    Funny how the scrobbles decrease from first to last track. Do people always give up in the middle of an album?

    This is pretty similar to the first album in terms of general sound, I don't get why it's been so polarizing.

    Sorry but this is so much better than the 1st album.

    I think the reason this album wasn't as good as the first was because they kicked out Baria

    Morto com a descrição ''Um álbum pra quem quer uma boa música de fundo enquanto faz uma leitura ou um mantra ‘prum’ sexo tântrico fabuloso, numa categoria que nomearam Trip-Hop Indie. O lançamento não faz encher os olhos e está longe dos sucessos, Crystalized, VCR e Islands, porém, traz calma aos corações ansiosos dos fãs com tranquilidade e qualidade.''

    The people who say that this album is boring, are boring. Get out.

    It's a good sophomore record. Having said that, the first one set the bar so high I feel like whatever they'd put out, some sort of disappointment was inevitable.
