To the casual observer, the holidays are the happiest, jolliest time of the year: the blinking lights, the merry carols, the parties, the good cheer on every street corner and in every shop. However, the statistics tell us that, for many, the holidays are the time of year when depression reaches its annual peak. It is for these people, then, that American slow-core three-piece Low have released Christmas, their collection of heartbreakingly downbeat holiday songs. The eight songs on this mini album are a mix of new compositions--"If You Were Born Today", the sparkling "Just Like Christmas"--and traditional favourites--"Silent Night" and their sublime take on "Little Drummer Boy". Their version of Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas" is particularly gorgeous: Mimi Parker's vocals drawing out the pain of holiday loneliness over the sparsest of arrangements, the whole thing sounding like Mazzy Star on tranquilisers. This is not an album for festive gatherings; rather, it's the perfect escape from the mania of the season. Quietly compelling, touching and, above all, perhaps the most moving and sincere Christmas album you're likely to hear. --Robert Burrow

I bought this album on the strength of "Just Like Christmas" and I was not disappointed. Every track is a winner - originals and covers alike. Read morePublished on 23 Dec. 2011 by crsm

Nobody does downbeat quite like Low. Little Drummer Boy sounds like you're listening to it from the depths of a ketamine-induced trance, while the drawn-out glassy vocals of Blue... Read morePublished on 11 Jan. 2011 by Winged Monkey
Just when you think you've heard everything Christmas music has to offer! Hauntingly beautiful and a complete change from the usual seasonal fare. Brilliant.Published on 23 Dec. 2010 by J. Pauley
As this is a Christmas CD and it is still only September, I have not played it!
I am sure having listened to the preview tracks and read the great reviews it will be... Read more
Christmas again - what better time to review Low's superb festive album which portrays a more common Christmas experience for many than the forced jollity of your Slade or Wizzard... Read morePublished on 24 Dec. 2007 by D. Newton
