I wouldn't call it the usual type of Christmas CD full of jingle bells & tales of Santa Claus but it will definitely get you in the mood for Christmas.
The album comprises some Christmas songs & other non-Christmas-y songs but the mood is very much of cold Winter days & spicy mulled wine - I was most disppointed that it wasn't actually snowing when I looked outside & it feels like a hug in a big woolly jumper.
Tom Smith's voice is very deep & works well with the more sombre songs on the album. Andy Burrows' voice is totally different & to me, sounds a little Beatle-esque on some songs. They work beautifully together.
Buy it - you won't be disppointed!
As one other reviewer mentions, this is a different kind of seasonal CD which has the 'feel' of the season rather than being an outright Christmas CD. There are tracks on it which will be played at other times of the year as well. Lyrically and sonically very good indeed. What's more (or maybe less), at just 35 minutes long, the 10 track set does not outstay its' welcome.
For me, Christmas this year started with the arrival of this CD.
haunting, astmospheric, beautiful, and refreshingly different to the usual reguritated christmas fodder that gets churned out every year. funny looking angels is forever going to be associated with the smell of a real christmas tree, an open fire, a generous whisky mac and good company. love it.
The only similarity between Smith & Burrow's record and those of their respective bands is Tom Smith's haunting voice that dominates maybe half of the tracks, with even these ranging in style. The others feature a mix of Burrow's contrasting vocals, with some festive harmonies in other places. I won't even try to box these tracks into one genre, nor describe the ways in which this isn't your typical Christmas album. It's melancholy in places, upbeat in others, with more than a few lyrics to raise a smile or warm the heart ("like your favourite film / it's a wonderful life / you've seen it a hundred times / but you don't get bored...")
It's a pretty short album at only 34 minutes, but almost every minute is perfect. Two beautiful cover versions of 80s songs sit right in the middle of the album, while the whole recording is sandwiched by two traditional 'Christmas album' tracks.
Only 5 days after release, it's perhaps a bit too soon to say whether I'll still be listening to this come New Year. But at the moment Funny Looking Angels is really getting me in festive spirits, and I see this being an album I return to again and again each year as the long nights and frost draw in. Highly recommended.
Not always the usual Christmas music here, as it has some well chosen covers, but fresh because of that. I love this album x
