Reviewed by Mike Rimmer

This is another one of those instrumental albums where record companies don't feel inclined to credit the creators! Is this changing the names to protect the innocent? The laziness of employing some faceless studio musos to crank out a collection of instrumental Christmas hits? And another thing! Have you noticed that in America, often they don't have Christmas but the holiday season? But that's an aside! Here are a pile of the usual suspects at Christmas like "First Noel", "Away In A Manger", "Little Drummer Boy" and "What Child Is This" delivered in a soft jazzy style. Christmas chillout without much creativity! It all ends up being a bit bland. Forget sitting by the log fire enjoying 'Songs For December', because that's the kind of cosy warmness this album is supposed to evoke. Instead turn up the central heating and fall asleep to this after Christmas lunch. Zzzzzzzzzzzz.
