Reviews:
It has been commented in previous years that I rarely include any Christmas records in the Festive Season and that's probably true. Not because there isn't any but more likely than not they're not very good to say the least. I mean there are only so many times you can listen to songs about snowmen, Reindeer and fat old men with white beards before you have to go and have a lay down until it's all over, or at least until someone cooks a nice roast turkey and fills your wine glass. The nice people at Silber Records however see things quite differently and have put together a Christmas compilation which is actually interesting. From the opening "Santa Don't Eat Smoke And Alcohol" by Charles DeMar through Moodring's disturbingly brutal version of "Silent Night" which has to be heard to be believed to moments of beauty from the likes of Yellow 6 and Lullibier.
This is a Christmas compilation fit to accompany any family occasion and if your Mum doesn't like it you can always turn the volume up!
