Hype on them: off the charts
When I first discovered The xx, I had no idea who they were or if anyone else had heard of them- just knew I was Into Them. Over the past few weeks I have transitioned from like, into full blown love. Turns out I'm not the only one. The blogs are buzzing about them - making them the critic's darling 'it' band of the moment. This would typically make them fresh meat to the music vultures who love to prey on anything 'hyped'- however even they can't deny that their record lives up to the critical acclaim.
