Classic Christmas Cheer | Posted November 17, 2014
A Christmas compilation has become a rite of passage for artists in the industry today. What used to be seen as an achievement only GRAMMY award winning vocal powerhouses dare touch has slowly evolved into a childhood dream-come-true for singers who grew up bathing in the old school sounds of winters past.

The rockers of 7eventh Time Down are the latest in a long line of Christian artists to offer their own spin on the season with their new EP, A Christmas Wish List, including one timeless cover and two all-new original tracks.

"I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day" is one of the lesser covered songs in recent memory, and the band does a fantastic job bringing it up to speed and making it something new and special once again.

As for the two new tracks, "This Christmas" and "Wish List," the latter of the two brings the most to the table creatively. Avoiding trite melodic stereotypes, it's a good taste of what the band sounds like outside of a CCM-spun formula, while still incorporating the rustic, seasonal elements flawlessly.

The lyrics on both tracks seem a bit forced at moments, but overall evoke the warm feelings a good Christmas song should. Take the following lyric from "This Christmas" as a prime example: "I wish for joy to come fill our hearts / I pray for peace and a brand new start / I wish for love and Your kingdom come / This is my wish list."

Closing Thoughts:
While 7eventh Time Down is a band that is still trying to find themselves musically, you certainly won't need to search far to find a solid collection of cheerful tunes on their first Christmas offering. Combining their signature southern grit with the joyful twinkle of seasonal merriment, this brief EP represents them well, both as musicians and songwriters. Throw the bonus of Christmas into the mix, and you have a recipe for holiday bliss.
