6/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 November 2012
Right, don’t get me wrong, I like Cerys Matthews, I like her singing voice, I like her speaking voice, I like her radio show and I sort of fancy her in the way you used to sort of fancy your friends mum when you were 9. I have absolutely no idea what she is doing here but I sincerely hope that she has got financially reimbursed for subjecting this upon the world. As we all are aware by now christmas is coming, nativities are being planned up and down the country, the goose is getting fat and everyone who is anyone is releasing their christmas album. Cerys takes on a whole slew of christmas songs for reasons best known to herself. Jingle Bells is here as is ‘Deck the Halls’, ‘Little Donkey’ plods along, ‘Away in a Manger’, ‘Silent Night’, need I go on? Its perfectly well played and sung with a home-fi, fireside charm but is completely and utterly pointless. I honestly don’t know what’s going on in the world. Who will buy this? Catatonia completists? Radio 6 listeners? The Welsh? Paging Ant, paging Ant, your christmas dreams have come true.
