I See You is marked by a tonal shift to something close to pure, crisp pop structure, adorned by unusual crescendos that echo a dextrous DJ inching their dancer toward climax without ever quite lifting the house lights. Its lyric sheet moves from the danger and hopelessness of love to its deliciousness and rapture; a move into a more outward looking proposition.
I See You is recognizably still The xx but is now powered by the voluble ambition of its three perfect counterweights to one another starting to not just realize but harness their full potential. You might even want to think of the decisive move from Joy Divi¬sion to New Order here, too.
When they take their plum festival slots in 2017, armed with the ten most robust songs of their career, The xx should prick the skin and touch gently the shoulder of an audience reaching to the back of the field.

Returned to Amazon, got another copy. return was handled quickly and efficiently although I was annoyed at having to pay for the bubble-pack envelope.
Second copy doesn't skip horribly. However track 10 does not play at all.
there are designs etched onto the plane side of the desk. I'm sure the skipping and not playing is related to this.
the designs look very nice... But who gives a s*** if you can't listen to the music? back in the old days designs went on the covers or the booklets. No designs on the disks especially on the playing side!
Not really interested in getting into a return return rondelay with Amazon. Hope someone reads this and provides some actual solutions instead of just endless returns.
PS this is a great album. I highly recommend it as a listening experience. But you need to be able to actually hear it to appreciate it.
update. Got a third CD from Amazon. Skipping is still there! This is really pathetic. Amazon needs to take this off it's website. It is just fundamentally defective.
Sparkling vocals and really great musicianship and production makes this a "must have."
My favorites - besides "On Hold," are Lips, A Violent Noise, Replica, Brave For You.
