Christmas is all around, but for realz?
on August 6, 2014
Sorry I bought this. Maudlin and sentimental, for the most part. And the flow is not great from song to song. I guess I only like the Ultravox songs, so I should have found their best of instead. This stuff is horribly over-produced, and concludes on the worst-ever cover of Bowie's "Man Who Sold The World," (which was supposed to be mysterious and obsessive last I checked). Out of 17 songs the three I already had were the best ("Vienna," "Fade to Grey," "Dancing with tears in my eyes") so I've just bought a rather expensive single of "Do They Know It's Christmas?" Is this the guy they based the jingle-writer from Love, Actually on?
