Your home for everything artistic

I have done quite a few music reviews over the years but I can honestly say I’m not sure if I’ve ever given an album a 5-star rating, until now. The fact is, even the artists nobody would ever expect to come out with a Christmas album are lining the retails shelves with holiday sounds. And in some ways, the impact has been lousy. You are probably going to end up with either a bunch of originals that are of poor quality or boring versions of the classics.

On this recording, what Lindsey does so well, with the help of a few friends (Sabrina Carpenter, Becky G, Trombone Shorty and Alec Gaskarth of All Time Low) is blend her own style that has made her a star with classic tunes while adding in just enough in terms of original songs to make for a very pleasant listening session.

The best among the originals is “Christmas C’mon” and the most interesting rendition of a cover is “Let It Snow.”

Overall, I’d be hard-pressed to find someone I didn’t think would love it.
