There's something about this album which I really like. Maybe it's the relatively unique sound which Norah Jones adds to the holiday songs which I commonly listen to and/or hear. Which is to say holiday music with some jazz elements thrown in. And while I'm generally drawn to the more classic and/or traditional holiday songs, I was most drawn to "Christmas Glow" on this album.

Overall Rating: 4.8/5
Favorite Song: "Christmas Glow"
