Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that that Coexist is a generally clean album, containing no graphic language or allusions to sex, substances, or violence. While the subject matter can be a bit melancholy and brooding at times ("I saw you again, it felt like we had never met / It's like the sun set in your eyes and never wanted to rise"), the record is an OK pick for older tweens and teens.
What's the story?
"COEXIST" is the second full-length record from British indie pop band The xx. Consisting of a girl and two guys, the trio's music gained traction after being sampled by Rihanna in her song "Talk That Talk."
Is it any good?
The slow, melancholy sound of Coexist fits its heavy lyrical mood. With vocal duties split between female singer Romy Croft and the two guys in the band, the tracks have a quality that's at once sad and lovely.
