iTunes Review

Smalltown Poets’ second holiday project is an eclectic affair that offers time-honored carols along with original tunes rooted in traditional hymnody. Christmas Time Again expands this veteran Christian pop/rock band’s palette to include haunting choir vocals (“Cantus Sacrum Nocti,” ”Sing We Now of Christmas”), spirited gospel quartet arrangements (“Children Go Where I Send Thee”), and shimmering instrumentals (“Auld Lang Syne”). Blazing upbeat rockers like “The Wassail Song” are interspersed with stately nativity tunes like “This Day in Bethlehem.” These diverse strands unite to create a consistently engaging album full of surprises and rich with reverence.

Customer Reviews

A Must Have!

It's always seemed like most "artists" use Christmas albums as another excuse to reach in to your wallet. An opportunity to make money while they phone in a karaoke version of Christmas standards. The Poets, however, apply the same intelligent approach to this album that they have on every album they've put out. I love the smart lyrics and melodies on each track. They big background vocals against Michael's vocals are what truly make this special. The title track might just be my new favorite contemporary Christmas song. Christmas season always comes with its own sense of nostalgia and this track captures that beautifully. Great album!!

Terrific Christmas album

I thought the first Christmas album from Smalltown Poets was awesome but Christmas Time Again is even better.

Great mix of tunes for those who love christmas

The album has a solid rock vibe that threads through the whole album making it something you can listen to on a loop all the way through over and over..

I start listening to Christmas music in October. I didn’t have any other Smalltown Poets albums prior to this one and clearly I have been missing out. There is a great mix of traditional Christmas songs and original tunes. I am usually not a fan of the original Christmas songs because they just can’t seem to find a place among the Christmas greats. You can imagine my surprise when I found myself not skipping the original tunes and singing along. This makes a great gift as well.
