First listen.
This first track... I can see the appeal. But I don't think the style appeals to me. Or perhaps I'd have to listen to their music in general first. This is the first time I've listened to this musical group.
Maybe something in the composition of the first track. Because this second track sounds good.
Second listen.
Moved "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" from a "2" to a "3".
Third listen.
Fourth listen.
This first track sounds better now. Move from a "0" to a "2".

3: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas";
2: "O Come, All Ye Faithful"; "Mary, Did You Know?"; "Let It Snow/Winter Wonderland"; "O Holy Night";
1: "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day";
0: "Thankful";

This was a short album and I was able to listen to it several times. While the duo's sound grew on me over the four listens, the only rating I changed was "O Come, All Ye Faithful" (from a "0" to a "2"). In any case, it was a generally pleasing album experience from start to finish and perhaps the only problem was that I had not heard of them or their music before.

Overall Rating: 4.2/5
Favorite Song: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
