Like its predecessor, Alabama's Christmas, Vol. 2 is a pleasant mix of traditional holiday carols ("Little Drummer Boy," "O Little Town of Bethlehem"), and fine but undistinguished, original carols like "New Year's Eve 1999" and "Christmas in Your Arms." There's not much about Christmas, Vol. 2 for listeners that aren't already fans of the group, but for fans, it's a fine addition to their collection. ~ Thom Owens
