This is a fantastic Christmas album! It's an album of 11 Christmas songs, 2 originals and 9 traditional songs. The 2 originals are Greatest time of year which is a happy, rejoicing song about the Christmas period and Not this year which is the complete opposite. It was inspired by how they felt one year after their gran died and the lyrics are touching and melancholic. The girls voices sound angelic on the covers of the traditional songs and the instrumentalism is fantastic from the guitarists and musicians. It's sort of cheating calling it `acoustic' because 3 of the songs are not. The 2 originals and Little drummer boy are very pop-rock sounding songs with electric guitar. I do like how different the latter sounds to the traditional, somewhat boring version. The girls have put their own touch to these songs and did very well.

The album starts and ends with the original songs which although is a good idea because it puts the girls' stamp on the album, after hearing the melancholic Not this year it makes you want to go back and listen to track 1 again! However the album fits together very nicely and it's a perfect accompaniment to the holiday season. My favourite covers are We three kings, The first noel, I'll be home for Christmas and Deck the halls (which is an awesome take on the song!). There are some very nice liner notes from the girls explaining the 2 original songs and their thoughts and feelings about the festive season. It's a very enjoyable listen and I would highly recommend!

I got this Christmas album from Amazon last year after hearing Aly & AJ's original Christmas single "Greatest Time Of Year".

When i got it totally loved it, it's full of classic Christmas songs and 2 original ones.

My favourites are, Greatest Time Of Year, Not This Year, I'll Be Home For Christmas & Let It Snow.

Here's how i rate each track:
1. Greatest Time Of Year: 10/10
2. Joy To The World: 7/10
3. We Three Kings: 7/10
4. The First Noel: 8/10
5. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen: 9/10
6. Silent Night: 8/10
7. I'll Be Home For Christmas: 10/10
8. Let It Snow: 10/10
9. Deck The Halls: 9/10
10. Little Drummer Boy: 8/10
11. Not This Year: 10/10

A great Christmas album to add to any Collection.

My daughter really wanted this CD and we were pleased to find we could order it through Amazon. Pleasant to listen to, especially this week (!). Can't help but sing along! A great Christmas CD.

My best advice is to listen to the samples. If they appeal, then the whole album probably will. The songs have been 'sanitised' to the point where they sound like breathlessly performed Muzak - all very sweet, featureless and dull. Songs like 'God rest ye' and 'Deck the halls' have an inherent liveliness - almost a rollicking quality. All that is gone. Smothered by a blanket of saccahrine daintiness. And as for the rhythm used for 'Deck the halls' ..... that's awful.

To my ears, the performers sound like pale imitations of Candice Knight - and she can REALLY pile on the angelic sweetness when she wants to (always to better effect than anything you hear here). The duo sing competently enough but seem too wrapped up in their own delicacy.

If you want featureless smoothness to play as background ambience, then maybe this CD will suit. But please try the samples first - you could be very disappointed.
