A solution for a Christmas carol problem.

I know it is only September, but the shops have started selling Christmas stuff so I thought I might be able to get away with this post.

I love Christmas. Unfortunately I don’t really like Christmas carols. I don’t exactly know why, but I haven’t loved them for a while now.

It could have something to do with my need for things to be presented in a fresh and exciting way for me to be engaged with them. Of maybe it could have something to do with the fact that my ‘style’ of music does not incorporate Christmas carol (I don’t see any of my favourite bands doing Christmas albums any time soon).

Last year, to the delight of my wife (she likes Christmas carols), I discovered a Christmas album that I really liked. The sound was loud, passionate and fresh. There were old songs, new songs and some thought out new/old mixtures. This album caused such a change in me that Kirsty often finds me listening to it… during the whole year.

The album in question is called ‘North Point Christmas’. You can listen to the whole album here. But you really should go an buy it here.

Don’t waste your money buying silly ornaments at MYER.

  1. My vote goes for Sufjan Steven’s Christmas albumn – it’s a five disk set. Only Christmas album that I can listen to at any time of the year.

    I’m sure I downloaded it freely and legally a few years ago, but I don’t know if you can still do that.
