I heard some of the tracks in session on the radio on the way home after the 'last long trip' of the year so maybe I was in a good mood! I was impressed with the sound and the idea enough to buy the CD and on another listen to the tracks I'd already heard and a first listen to the others I am very happy with this.
As one other reviewer mentions, this is a different kind of seasonal CD which has the 'feel' of the season rather than being an outright Christmas CD. There are tracks on it which will be played at other times of the year as well. Lyrically and sonically very good indeed. What's more (or maybe less), at just 35 minutes long, the 10 track set does not outstay its' welcome.
For me, Christmas this year started with the arrival of this CD.
