Plus One
Christmas



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 11 tracks: 38 Minutes, 26 Seconds
Street Date: 2002


This is such an awesome Christmas album release from pop group Plus One, one that includes a mix of holiday favorites as well as several original titles. From the intriguing guitar intro on the first track to the close with a classic Christmas tune, Plus One captures the holiday spirit. The vocals are tremendous, the lyrics are touching, and, while the album definitely has a "pop" sound to it, there's something here for everyone to enjoy.

The first two tracks, "This Is Christmas" and "I Won't Forget This Christmas" (both written by Plus One), are inspirational and innovative, sure to be favorites to listen to over and over again. The next track is a wonderful addition that combines three heart-warming tunes, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," and a rousing rendition of "Come Let Us Adore Him." The band slows down a little with a soft and meditative "What Child Is This," definitely one of the album's highlights. It's pure enjoyment to hear Plus One in a nice little spin-off from the verse, listening as the energy builds up toward the final chorus. "Silent Night" is performed free of any accompanying instruments, allowing the listener to hear unfettered the beautiful and clear vocals of these inspiring guys.

The group shifts gears again with "A Prayer For Every Year," probably the only letdown on this laudable album; it has a "been there, done that" sound to it (think of those Disney songs from the early 90's). However, this so-so track is immediately countered with "O Holy Night," one of those tunes that really grows on you after several listens. Next is a merry and charming song titled "Our Christmas Prayer." By this point, one really starts to appreciate the ability of Plus One to utilize a variety of sounds and styles to create an awesome assortment of Christmas music. "O Little Town of Bethlehem" is infused with a touch of novelty, which may appeal to some or potentially turn away others. A classy reproduction of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" tops off this great Christmas album.

Plus One has successfully produced an endearing and terrific Christmas collection that should find a welcome place in your music library. It's a great CD to pop in the stereo while the cookies are baking, the gifts are being wrapped, and the fire is crackling in the wood stove. It also serves as a reminder of what Christmas is all about- Jesus, something that is missing in many mainstream Christmas releases nowadays. A well-deserved kudos to Plus One!
