AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH! Help! 'WoW Christmas' collects together all your "favourite" Christmas songs sung by your "favourite" Christian artists. It's kind of a Christian version of 'Now Christmas' but instead of Slade, Wizzard and all the rest, you get Jars Of Clay, CeCe Winans, FFH, Jaci Velasquez, Amy Grant, 4Him, TobyMac and 23 more wobbling their way through a pile of carols. To be honest some of this is cheesier than my used socks and you get a cheddary version of "Winter Wonderland" from Avalon, all Andrews Sisters even though there are two blokes in the band! Ditto for Jaci Velasquez's "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow". Generally though, you know exactly what this sounds like and it's purgatory to listen to.
