    Just alittle. Their album is a good listen. They have the potential to release some great albums in the future I feel like.

    they landed a really good set time on a really good stage this year, however I feel like they should have been in one of the tents

    They may be a bit overrated, but I like them. They were really great on the Outdoor Stage at sunset.

    I would actually only see them if I was paying. Saw them at Coachella last time and their sound is not good for an outdoors festival, they need to be inside or their sound gets lost, I would see them again at a smaller indoor venue though and I think they'd be great in that kind of setting.

    I voted no. I'm totally digging them. They're going to blow those main stage speakers up.

    For them to be rated at all makes them over rated. They should be a non-factor.

    I seriously do not get why people like them. At all. Someone please explain. What is their appeal?

    So are most farts, that doesn't mean i'd pay to see someone spread their cheeks on stage and crop dust the audience for 50 minutes

    In case you didn't pick up on it due to my subtlety, I'm saying that that the xx are about as appealing as someone gently farting into a microphone for 50 minutes.

    They've really got their shit together live on this tour. Was really impressed when I saw them here in December.

    I voted yes... Even though I do like a couple of their songs (mostly from the first CD), I mostly just find them incredibly boring and feel like most of their songs sound exactly the same.

    Actually, they put those main stage speakers to sleep. BORING.

    I saw them in 2010 and took a nap near a tower during their set. I thought they were a bit too boring for a big stage, but since I didn't give them a good chance in 2010 I decided to check them out again this year. what a mistake, I left after a couple songs and went over to Two Door Cinema club instead. it's not that I don't like the xx, I do, but they aren't suited for an outdoor music festival.

    do I think they're overrated? not really, their recorded stuff is quite ok, but I don't think it translates well in a live setting unless it's a smaller venue - but they are a bit too big for something like that because of their popularity.
