Date Released: August 25, 2009

: Super-hyped bands have a tendency to disappoint, but England's The xx have exploded from the gate with an genuinely excellent album. The self-titled debut is soulful, moderately paced and laden with influences spanning from 80's Cure through to Massive Attack and Portishead. And it boasts one of the best tracks of the year in "Crystalized."
