Word. I also mentioned the speeding up before in said post.

Definitely my least favorite part of it being used is the increase in tempo. I get it, Ohno's fast. I don't need the music to go faster than usual to tell me that.

So apparently I've been hearing Crystallized for the last year or so on Local Alternative Station, but never bothered finding out the artist. Cool. The male/female duet is, as mentioned upthread, really appealing. And Intro's chimy guitar-synth-string-drum ambience is right in my wheelhouse.

Gotta give this album a little more time to find out if its aggressive relaxation is a unique taste, or ultimately too slight, but I'm really glad I stumbled on this: (related!)

Pretty cool that you get a free download of the album by buying a ticket to one of their shows.

Where have you been, phanan?

A few others seem to be fairly disappointed with it. I've only heard the singles.

Backlash for what? That it sounds exactly like the last one?

I haven't listened to the stream yet, but my expectations have been lowered enough that I'll probably enjoy it.

A combination of summer, family death, friend's family death, and just life in general got in the way the past couple of months. Hopefully things are back to normal now.

Rateyourmusic was harsh
Atease was harsh
Opinions here have been lukewarm so far

A lot of the tunes aren't sticking with people. Personally, I just like the aesthetic. Wonderful atmosphere. But I suppose people don't listen to the xx solely for their ambient qualities.

Ah, ok. I haven't been paying much attention.

Regardless, I like it so far.
