This is a short album. While I rated two of the songs as 3's, the album as a whole felt rather neutral and never sounded exciting enough. In different words, this album felt as if it was carried along by my love for certain classics. Speaking of which, I eventually intend to assign adjusted ratings for the holiday albums based on how I tend to feel towards certain songs. In other words, adjust for song preference. In any case, for now I will rate this album a 3.8 out of 5.

Between "Let It Snow!" and "Winter Wonderland," I found "Winter Wonderland" more lively and worthy of being the favorite on the album.

Overall Rating: 3.8/5
Favorite Song: "Winter Wonderland"
