Michael W. Smith, "It's a Wonderful Christmas"
OK, I admit it. I am a traditionalist at heart. Especially when it comes to the holidays. My car radio is tuned to the 24-hour Christmas music station. My family decorated our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. We're even going to observe the Advent season (and we're not Catholic!).

Needless to say, I like my Christmas music traditional as well--full orchestras, Christ-centered words, etc. In an ironic way, the latest from Michael W. Smith largely fits into this mold. I was able to get a copy through the blog for music program, and appreciate Reunion Records sending it my way. What do I think? "It's a Wonderful Christmas" is a balanced album with a good mix of instrumental and carol-like songs. We were listening to it while setting up our Christmas tree and it set a wonderful Christmas mood.

While I am not always the biggest Smith fan, I found this CD to be a treat. I'm sure we'll continue listening to it through the holiday season.
