Now as much of a christmas standard as "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree" by Mel and Kim. Low are the perfect band to soundtrack Christmas, coming as they do from the snow-bound city of Duluth which glistens like Christmas half the year round. This short album combines lovely originals "Just Like Christmas" and "Long Way Around the Sea" with spooky versions of traditional song. It's the perfect soundtrack to my Christmas tradition of driving around the less salubrious neighbourhoods, checking out the houses all ridiculously lit up.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 22nd February 2015
As February nears its end, it's obviously a good time to review this. I often get asked what my favourite Christmas song is. I don't really know why. However, when other people tell me they usually pick "Fairy Tale Of New York" by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl or "Wrapping Paper" by The Waitresses. I don't tend to like many of them these days as the ones by Slade and Wizzard have been around for about a year longer than I have and have gradually worn me down. I have a soft spot for "I Believe In Father Christmas" by Greg Lake, but "Just Like Christmas" by Low is a great song whichever way you slice it. The other original track on here is a gorgeous and typically super slow Low song with beautiful male/female harmonies. Their version of "Silent Night " is actually quite beautiful too. Buy this now, then play it more at Christmas.
