Last Christ­mas XL ★★★ A late, late, late con­tender for the cov­eted Christ­mas No 1 slot. The xx turn fes­tive con­ven­tion on its head by strip­ping the Wham clas­sic of its trade­mark sleigh bells and turn­ing it into a sort of min­i­mal­ist elec­tropop thingy and, er, not ac­tu­ally re­leas­ing it in time to qual­ify for the Christ­mas chart. Well, bet­ter luck next year.
