Released 20161021.
11 songs. 34:22. A Pentatonix Christmas (2016)
11+5 songs. 34:22+16:37. A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe (2017)
First listen. Deluxe.
Nice start to the album with their version of "O Come, All Ye Faithful" - especially given my thoughts on their recent holiday release We Need A Little Christmas (I disliked the first track "12 Days of Christmas")
I like the verses, but I could do without the "Up on the housetop | Up on the housetop | Yeah yeah" exclamation between the verses
Their version of "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" is okay compared to the original.
Songs in bold are the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition.
3: "O Come, All Ye Faithful"; "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!";
2: "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"; "White Christmas" (ft. The Manhanttan Transfer); "I'll Be Home for Christmas"; "Hallelujah"; "Deck the Halls"; "How Great Thou Art" (ft. Jennifer Hudson); "Away in a Manger";
1: "Up On The Housetop"; "Coldest Winter";
0: "The Christmas Sing-Along"; "Coventry Carol"; "Good to Be Bad"; "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"; "Hallelujah" (ft. The String Mob);

I like this album much better than their latest album, We Need A Little Christmas.

Overall Rating (Standard): 4.8/5
Overall Rating (Deluxe): 4.6/5
Favorite Song: "O Come, All Ye Faithful"
