A perfect Christmas album, in October!
Posted October 09, 2007
Ah, time to sit back and enjoy the sounds of the season-in October. That's what Jars of Clay is doing with their newest album Christmas songs, a fourteen track CD with some great new songs and great performing of classics.
This album may bring back memories of older Jar of Clay from start to finish. "Winter Skin" is a great sounding Christmas tune and "in the bleak midwinter" is another impressive new song. "Evergreen" and "The Gift Of St. Cecilia" are both instrumental. "Wonderful Christmastime" is one of the best sounding Christmas songs.
The album sounds very classical at parts; even the new songs have a classical tint to them, which sound good. "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen", "Heard The Bells On Christmas Day" and "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" are some of the classics that they master on their album. "Christmastime Is Here" and "Love Came Down At Christmas" are not great.
This album will be a leading holiday CD this year, so sit back with some hot chocolate and spin Jars of Clay Christmas songs on December first.
