EDITORS’ NOTES

On these holiday standards, Zooey Deschanel's silky alto swirls with M. Ward's dexterous guitar as fluidly as the red and white of a candy cane—and the resulting sound is just as sweet. A tropical breeze wafts through the album, most notably on ukulele-led "Silver Bells" and over the echoing surf licks of "Christmas Day," written by Brian Wilson. There are melancholic moments, but the spirit is as winking and playful their seasonal tête-à-tête "Baby, It's Cold Outside."

A very charming Christmas

Everything Zooey Deschanel touches turns into something charming and wonderful, and this album is no exception. I am not a big fan of holiday albums, but this one is really lovely. The songs are done in Zooey's and M. Ward's enigmatic style while remaining true to the originals. This album is a perfect companion to the two previous She & Him CDs, and is going to be one of my most played albums this Christmas. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs some holiday spirit- She & Him won't disappoint! :-)

It's okay but,

I was kind of expecting the happy, bubbly, singing Christmas songs in the shower ELF feel. But that was probably just me..

Depressing

Perhaps my idea of a Christmas album is a little overreaching, I was hoping for some poppy holiday kitzch, especially coming from these guys. I thought it would be heartwarming and fun, but it sounded painfully depressing. I know they were trying to go for that stripped down feel, but it just sounded sad.
