Wow. This is great. A holiday remix of her hit song "Nonsense". It's genius [apparently she released this track last year]
Wow I really like this version of "white xmas"

I've since partially listened to the album three more times, which is an indication that I like it, and so I've decided to bump it up from a 5.4 to a 5.6. However, I would mention that this album has the benefit of being an EP. As such, while it has the same rating as Carrie Underwood's My Gift, the rating of 5.6 for My Gift is much more impressive. Actually, that album is such a go-to album for me that I'm tempted to bump its rating up from a 5.6 to a 5.8 (remark: I've yet to assign a rating higher than 5.6 to an album)!

Overall Rating: 5.6/5
