REVIEW: V/A – Cashing In On Christmas Volume 5

HO-037-front-cover-720x720V/A Cashing In On Christmas Volume 5
LP 2013 Black Hole Records

Going to work on a cold December morning with Cashing In On Christmas Volume 5 coming out of my headset gets the Christmas spirit started ;-). Whether you love Christmas or hate it, this 3-sided LP, features (mostly) original tunes from well known and less known punk and Oi! Bands bringing Christmas inspired songs.

Not all songs/bands are brilliant and the strongest point about this album is that its a divers album. Whether you are into punk, punk rock, ska or Oi!, whether you like to cheer to the Christmas spirit, hate it or just want to have fun, this album got it all from Jingle bells to Santa’s Hell. It even puts the finger on some darker aspects of Christmas and our society (Another Night Alone, …).
For most of the songs it sure was fun to listen to. I’m surely going to check out some of the bands I didn’t know. 7,5/10
