The sultry-voiced chanteuse's entry in the Yuletide release stakes should prove a winner with her fans. Anachronistically jazzy arrangements of songs such as "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Christmas Time is Here" (yes, the PEANUTS song) vie with more contemporary titles like "Christmas in Jamaica" and the sexy "Santa Please." The latter should guarantee Braxton pretty much anything she wants in her Christmas stocking. Elsewhere the gentle "Snowflakes of Love" is wispily seasonal, and Braxton's rendition of "The Christmas Song" is simple and unaffected. SNOWFLAKES is both Christmas-y and sexy, and you really can't ask for better than that.
