This week we continue our newly released album review with
Sia – Everyday is Christmas
Review: Jamie Read.
The Christmas music that gets blasted out from the start of every October always seems to be the same.
There was a time when making a Christmas song was the thing to do.
Whether it’s Wham, Shakin’ Stevens or Chris de Burgh – there’s been some great hits.
But as this passed and the likes of Bob the Builder has been Christmas number one in the UK charts, we rarely see such seasonal songs.
However, this year Sia has combined her unique pop with some festive fun and released Everyday is Christmas.
The first track is Santa’s Coming For Us which sounds like a classic Sia song. The chorus is addictive and was not really surprising as the single release from this album.
Candy Cane Lane is sweet and sickly like the Christmas treat it is about. A nauseating chorus of candy canes.
Snowman and Snowflake are two very slow songs. The music and the pace of the tracks feels like a winter’s night drawing in.
Puppies Are Forever is upbeat and sends an important message that a charity like Dogs Trust would be grateful for.
“Puppies are forever and not just for Christmas.”
Sia is in a happy mood on Sunshine as she declares herself as help to Santa.
Underneath the Mistletoe is one of the better tracks. It’s more of a romantic Christmas song.
From the mistletoe she then moves onto Underneath the Christmas Lights. It’s a dreary song and I’m unsure if there’s meant to be a message behind it, but the repetition of the song title makes me switch off from listening.
Overall, Merry Christmas and all that. But if you want to enjoy yourself, avoid Sia’s season’s greetings.
Overall star rating: 1.5/5
