Ultra-prolific adult contemporary pianist Jim Brickman continued his strong showing of holiday-themed material with 2009's Joy. Fans who flocked to previous yuletide offerings like Gift, Peace, Christmas Romance and Hymns & Carols of Christmas will find much of the same here, as Brickman has applied his winning formula of tranquility, melody, and familiarity to 15 Christmas standards, including "Little Drummer Boy," "In the Bleak Midwinter," "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," "The Twelve Days of Christmas," and "Jolly Old St. Nicholas." ~ James Christopher Monger
