    Christmas EP's are always curious. You wonder will the artists go for a an attempt at a pop classic with a safety net of parody protecting their credibility or will you get a genuine piece of art. Glasvegas's attempt is a million miles away from parody, instead focusing on the memories often evoked by Christmas time. The Ghost of Christmas Past is omnipresent across all tracks.

The title track is the standout but there are plenty others as well. The thing about the band I find hard is the accented vocals. It's wears thin after a while. Expand

  1. A Snowflake Fell could have worked as a series of effective B-sides or bonus tracks on the aforementioned album package.
  2. Glasvegas have managed to top their own previous efforts before we've even had the chance to get used to them properly.
  3. ‘Careful What You Wish For’s quality--along with that of everything else here, not least the closing ‘Silent Night’, featuring a full church choir epically utilised to yank up every hair on the back of the listener’s neck--re-confirms Glasvegas’ position as the most exciting British band right now.
