REVIEW: Sylvia Bennett’s “It’s Christmas Time”

free image hosting Trying to find the perfect Christmas CD for grandma, but the mass heap of music out there makes you confused? Check out Sylvia Bennett‘s It’s Christmas Time (Out Of Sight), a pleasant 10-song collection featuring seven holiday classics and three brand new originals, two of them co-written by Bennett herself.

The music is adult contemporary pop and the standards are of course performed faithful to how people know them. They include “Winter Wonderland”, “Silent Night”, “Silver Bells”, and “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”. The originals will hopefully become standards in the years to come, including the album opener “A Rainbow Christmas”, along with “Wrap You Up For Christmas” and “Christmas Lights”. If you are a fan of The Carpenters‘ Christmas albums, you will definitely enjoy this disc, and it doesn’t go overboard with anything you or your grandmother do not want to hear.
