Good mix of festive songs. Sleigh Ride seems a bit thrown together initially, but then after listening to it a few times, it's surprising how well the 'flat' sections work. Great use of reverb / sustain on the guitars in Lonely This Christmas.

Okay, so this probably seems like a strange time to be listening to and reviewing a Christmas album/EP/whatever, but I like listening to Winter music in Summer and Summer music in Winter. I enjoy the contrast, doesn't everybody do that?

I hated that "cherry tree" song, still do, and I think it has clouded my judgement and appreciation of KT's work. There's always more to an artist than just one song anyway, especially if they're happy to experiment, expand, grow and develop.

This is a lovely, strangely-unheralded collection of covers ranging from the respectfully faithful ("2000 Miles", "Fairytale Of New York"), to the funnily jaunty ("Mele Kalikimaka", "Sleigh Ride") to the deeply heartbreaking ("Lonely This Christmas"), all beautifully sung and very well played, mostly by the woman herself.

I only have two complaints:

1. It's too short - 21 minutes and out.
2. Why is this only available on import, why no UK release and hence lower cost?

Apart from these, there's nothing else to grumble about here. She has slipped somewhat under the radar of late, but she's one of our best talents and seems happy to follow her own musical path now. If you're a fan and don't have this, then snap it up as it's a sheer joy from start to finish.

Have fallen in love with K. T. as her releases have got better and better. Her song-writing and voice keep on improving and her Invisible Empire album....well I love every track.
However, her Christmas album finds her sounding in second gear; she sounds monotone compared to the original releases of the festive songs. Witness the lack of her usual joie de vivre in Sleigh Ride. Sounds like her usual enthusiasm for life, in the studio and out of it, is missing. Sorry. Can't recommend this import.

Mostly average to good Christmas music. I love the version of Mele Kalikimaka on here but I can't get the blinking thing out of my head!

She has a great talent - amazing Christmas EP. Lonely This Christmas is a particular highlight, far more emotive than the original.
