Albenrezension

With this album, Irish singer and songwriter Tommy Sands makes an interesting and generally successful attempt to create a Christmas mood without recourse to traditional Christmas songs.

Highlights include a great version of the traditional "Matt Hyland" and a lovely original song of parting titled "Slan Abhaile." There is also a humorous — if hardly Christmasy — duet with Dolores Keane called "The Mixed Marriage." Maybe not utterly essential, but very nice all in all.
