  • Summary: The Scottish band's Christmas-themed album was recorded over 12 days.

  1. Positive: 6 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. It makes for one of the few Christmas albums that stands repeated listening. [Jan 2009, p.116]
  2. 80
    Glasvegas still strike the heart-strings, even without noisy guitars. [Jan 2008, p.94]
  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.
  4. The contrasting, wrenching emotions of 'Fuck You, It's Over' and 'Please Come Back Home' are surpasssed only by the title track which perhaps most closely recalls Yuletide tunes of old. [Winter 2009, p.80]
  5. This is a bit more than a simple holiday cash-in, but it falls short of anything all that necessary or memorable.
  6. This stocking-filler Christmas album, with its punning title and three-hankie melodrama, is an unabashed homage to the erstwhile tycoon of teen.
  7. A Snowflake Fell could have worked as a series of effective B-sides or bonus tracks on the aforementioned album package.

    Nothing that stands out as brilliant on this Christmas EP but it's still not bad. The title track is a good tune to be fair. A strange way to follow up their debut, Badly Drawn Boy did something similar with the About A Boy soundtrack, taking the pressure of the difficult second album off. The thing about the band I find hard is the accented vocals. Kind of gets annoying after a while. Collapse
