Point Of Grace bring the cinematic experience of all the Christmas films that you may have seen and puts it into a 10-song album which was originally released for the 2005 yuletide. The opening song particularly sounds like a soundtrack to a Disney film. It imitates the spirit of Disney so well that you can almost see the animated characters dancing and singing in front of you. Disney films are able to bring out the child in everyone; this album attempts to bring out the Christmas cheer in all who listen to it. By the titles alone - "Santa Medley" and "Jingle Bells" - you may believe that you will be able to sing along to these Christmas classics. However, this is where the popular CCM girl group choose to express their harmonious vocal skills. What they do so well, others will find impossibly cheesy. The girls continue to show their vocal power in "Let There Be Light" as they sing about the nativity with John David Webster. Meanwhile sweeping string instruments add a theatrical element to the songs and the album as a whole. Point Of Grace present an ideal and almost unattainable Christmas.
