AllMusic Review by

XX (pronounced "ten times") is tripped-out acoustic music. Obvious influences by Beck and They Might Be Giants result in quasi-funky, spunky weirdness. Big bass sounds and trip-hop elements combine here Andy Schneider's hollow-body baritone guitar. The timbre and audio coloring of this instrument makes it excellent for this percussive music. There is a real loose, party atmosphere and something akin to the lazy hipness of MC 900 Ft. Jesus and DJ Zero (also from Texas).
