Sufjan Stevens, Songs for Christmas

This best of five-disc box set is a warm collection of original and indie rock takes of your favourite Christmas songs. Like Stevens’ past work, it’s full of quirky yet smart song structures, and his loveable light-hearted voice. Although the classics are here (from “Jingle Bells” to “Joy To The World”) the best cuts are Stevens’ originals. Huge rocker “Hey Guys! It’s Christmas Time” dissolves into bells anda subtle mix of banjo, and keyboards accentuate the heartache tale on “Did I Make You Cry On Christmas.” Sweet, thoughtful, and fun, Songs should melt even the coldest of hearts.
