iTunes Review

Steven Curtis Chapman’s fourth holiday album reflects the Christian singer/songwriter’s sense of renewal after enduring a period of personal sorrow. Joy is infused with a warm, inclusive spirit that can be heard in its eclectic song choices and engaging performances. Traditional standards like “Joy to the World” and “We Three Kings” are interspersed with less-familiar hymns like the poignant “In the Bleak Midwinter." Modern-day favorites like “Let it Snow” and “Christmas Time Is Here” are given personal treatments. Most notable are the six original tunes Chapman contributes to the project. The romantic “Christmas Kiss” finds him adding a hint of Mel Tormé to his guy-next-door charm, while “Christmas Time Again” (cowritten by Chapman with his son Caleb) is a cheerful rockabilly number that invites comparisons to Brian Setzer. Also impressive are “Christmas in Kentucky” (a hometown salute that broadens into a message of world unity) and “Christmas Card” (a compassionate prayer that resonates beyond the holiday season).

Why Has It Taken So Long For Another SCC Christmas Album!?!

It has been 17 years since the last SCC Christmas album was release.....but you know what, this christmas album was worth the wait. Every tune is so lyrical with a hint of jazz and classic rock in the mix. I highly reccomend it.

Keeps me warm

I always wait in anticipation for your work Steven! Merry Christmas to you and yours! You will bless the ears and hearts of family once again this Christmas! Thank you!


Awesome new album! Good job!
