Glasvegas - The Christmas Album

(Sony/BMG)

SEASONAL ROCK

Available via download or as part of repackaged re-release of their debut long player this isn’t quite the full on Christmas ‘album’ Glasvegas promised, but they have delivered six outstanding songs for the holiday season. And it appears to be a pretty grim Christmas at the Glasvegas household with tracks like ‘Fuck You, It’s Over’ and ‘Please Come Back Home’. However, it’s this honesty smashing through the fallacy of ‘jolly’ festivities (Christmas does have the highest suicide rate of the year after all) that captures a sense of the season with more emotional resonance than the combined Slades, Cliffs and Wizards of the world can muster.
