What...? no reviews?

Hard to believe given the very very good quality of this release. Chris Squire looks back fondly on his choirboy youth as he reinterprets classic British Christmas carols (and a few popular ones) though the lens of his bass guitar, helped along the way, in no small measure, by the English Baroque Choir (and hopefully future collaborator) Steve Hackett, ex-guitarist extraordinaire of Genesis, who adds his signature electric and acoustic accompaniments. It's an interesting holiday offering for those tired of the usual Muzak one hears mostly during this season. Fans of prog rock will be very pleased as Chris' unique bass playing is up front but without the heavy-handedness one might expect from such a famous proponent of this instrument. This release straddles the difficult territory between traditionalism and new vision, and does it with quiet aplomb. Chris' voice never sounded better (when he does sing) and the added addition of a remix, with choir, of his late '90s UK hit "Run With The Fox" rounds out the experience quite nicely, ending on high, positive note. Happy Holidays! : )

My favorite Christmas album!

Full of beauty and surprising takes on classic carols, this is a Christmas necessity.


Recently discovered this album - not sure why it took me so long - and am thoroughly impressed. This is not a quick “one-off” by Squire and Hackett. It is a well-executed prog Christmas album building on traditional pieces. What really makes this album stand out is its use of putting a choir front and center throughout the work. That is unusual for progressive rock and Squire made it work.

Born Christopher Russell Edward Squire, in Wembley, England, on March 4, 1948, Chris Squire's main claim to fame was as the bassist for prog rock superheroes Yes. His start in music, however, came as a child singing in his church choir. His first rock group was the Selfs; he played with that group from 1965 to 1966, before forming the band the Syn. That group featured a guitarist named Peter Banks, with whom Squire would be associated in several bands. The Syn formed in 1966 and remained a group...
