This cd is wonderful, though not an easy one to sing along with while driving down the road as Randy's voice is much, much, much lower than anyone's in my family.We listen to this cd while having dinner or making cookies, etc.... Our favorite Christmas cd for background music because the tone is excellent and the style lends itself to a peaceful atmosphere.... because of this, we play this in our house a lot now.We have noticed that we "slow down" when this cd is playing and are much more likely to be in the moment rather than "rushing around to get things done."Traditional songs have a distinct "Randy Travis" style... which is nice.

Randy Travis at his best!!! All of the songs are great but "Labor Of Love" is beyond what words can describe.

Are you looking for the traditional Christmas songs as theres No Place Like home for the Holidays, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let it Snow? Are you looking for the Christian tunes such as Away in a Manger, The First Noel, or Little town of Bethlehem? Or are you looking for something new? Theyre here!!!First, you will note even the traditional songs are not as traditional as one might thing, with many of the songs having been re-arranged by Randy. A couple that particularly stand out are two of my favorites Angels We Have Heard on High and Oh Holy Night. Then there is Joy to the World which is like no other offering Ive ever heard.The vocals, with Randys rich baritone and a choir-like vocal background are terrific as is the musical instrumentation accompanying the CD.Randy performs three new songs on the CD Labor of Love, Nothins gonna Bring me Down at Christmas Time and Our King. Labor of Love is a beautifully performed song and although it starts out somewhat graphically and you wonder where it is going lyrically, one listen will tell you it is a song youll probably find yourself playing again and again. Nothins Gonna bring me Down at Christmas Time is an up-tempo song almost reminding one of the tongue-and-cheek songs Randy so often does on his CDs. It is about trials and tribulations that could bring you down during the holidays if you choose to let them. Our King written by Randy once again shows his unique writing ability wrapping up the CD with almost somewhat of a tribute to our Lord. I dont believe they could have ended with a more touching song.The one thing that I noted about the CD is unlike many other artists and Christmas CDs, Randy offers more than one verse on many songs, sometimes performing three verses. If youre truly looking for something to put some merriment in your Christmas, some joy in your New Year, this CDs for you.
