This review is from: This Is Christmas (MP3 Download)
Xmassy from the word go - this is fully in-your-face seasonal fare from Ash singer Tim Wheeler and singer-songwriter Emmy The Great, and makes no apologies for being so.
Despite the sleighbells and "wall of sound" production, the duo manage to keep the firmly on the right side of schmaltz, albeit with tongue firmly in cheek (on some tracks anyway!). However, away from the seasonal production, its the songwriting which stands out - particularly on tracks like Home For The Holidays, and Snowflakes. Both are instantly memorable and stand up as potential festive classics. They deserve huge amounts of airplay - even if just to hear something different on the radio.
Definitely an album that will stand up to repeated playing - even in years to come. Definitely one to buy if you love xmassy albums - certainly one to consider even if you dont.
