2.0 out of 5 stars Tentitive "Xmas" Theme..., 11 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Tinsel and Lights (MP3 Download)
Whilst I appreciate that Tracey Thorn has a great, clear voice, I think this project doesn't add value to her repertoire.

It has a very "down beat" sound and feel, and almost has an empty quality to it. It would have been lovely to hear a noise against type for once.

Sure, the lyrics are well thought out (ironically mostly not her own!), and the arrangements are fine, but it's just too depressing.

And as an aside, Hard Candy Christmas (Dolly Parton original) and River (Joni Mitchell original) have pretty much nothing to do with Christmas other than relationships that break down that either are related to Christmas or happen at that time of year. It's a shame that for me, these are the best two tracks on the album.....

Have to agree with you. I have been a fan of Thorn and EBTG for as long as I can remember but this album just made me feel miserable.
