Versions: The xx’s Crystalised

The moment I stumbled on the Gorillaz doing their own rendition of The xx‘s Crystalised, I was hypnotized. And because frontman Damon Albarn‘s soulful take of this indie song was great, it made me watch the video at least 20 times!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of both versions of this song. But, like what I mentioned before, an artist’s mettle is truly tested when they perform better live than the album versions of their song.

Anyway, it’s always a matter of preference. 

To hear or watch the two versions of Crystalised, click on the images below.

Two solid versions. A slightly different take that both are in random play on mp3 player.
