Natalie Grant has such a lovely voice that it seems very strange for her to have produced a CD of old favourite Christmas songs when she could be doing so much more with her phenomenal abilities. And do we really need another album of predictable fair like her take on the old carols "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "O Little Town Of Bethlehem". Having said that, the track "I Believe" is amazing, sung brilliantly and written by Natalie herself showing her talent up to the full. We need to hear more of that. Though maybe some of the reason for this over-the-top Christmas song is what Natalie writes herself about how she loves Christmas, goes totally over the top with everything. Maybe this is just her heart coming through, that she want us to all enjoy Christmas, "Santa Claus Coming To Town" and all!
