Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Elysium’, The XX’s ‘Coexist’ & Dave Matthews Band’s ‘Away From The World’ Get Reviewed: The Drop

Erika Brooks Adickman / September 11, 2012

It’s Tuesday and we’re back with The Drop, our Soundbytes segment where we rate the week’s hottest pop releases. September is in full swing, and perhaps that’s why we’re experiencing a serious chill vibe on the music front. Pet Shop Boys team up with a new producer for their 11th album Elysium, while Dave Matthews Band returns to an old collaborator on Away From The World. The xx debut their second effort Coexist — but is it a sophomore slump for the Brit group? Find out as we preview these albums and let you know which is worth your hard-earned dollars above.
