Stylistics fans and Christmas music lovers will find nirvana with this CD. Russell Thompkins' world-renowned falsetto is full of holiday spirit on a baker's dozen yuletide songs that are guaranteed to make that festive time warmer than the fixings in mama's oven. Of special note are "The Christmas Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Christmas," "When You Got Love, It's Christmas All Year Long," and "Auld Lang Syne," all of which Thompkins delivers with reverence. And there's not much of a drop-off when the other guys take the mike, as they do on "This Christmas," "I Wanna Be Wrapped in Your Arms This Christmas," and others. ~ Andrew Hamilton
