Three Songs for Christmas- Rachael Lampa EP Album Review

Rachael Lampa has released a Christmas EP, and I just received mine. It features three new songs as follows:

1. God Is With Us 4.5/5
It is the first Christmas song Rachael has written, and it definitely has her own personal musical style here. I love that it doesn't have that full on Christmas sound, so you could really listen to this all year round. Definitely the best song on this EP.

2. O Holy Night 4.5/5
The intro to the song is definitely way too long but the vocals are spot on and stunning. Not really a modern twist to the song, but beautifully sung.

3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas 3.5/5
The Christmas sound I mentioned previously definitely applies here, so I wouldn't really be listening to this track after December... a nice upbeat track that would play well in a ballroom or some big dinner... A good song, but doesn't stand out like "God Is With Us".

I'm not a fan of christmas songs but when it gets modernised or sung by someone you like listening to, it is a whole new experience. I definitely like Rachael's version of O Holy Night- quite raw and reminds me of her musical style. However, not too fond of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"... just isn't a christmas song that I am familiar with, but has potential to grow on me.

Overall, they are a good few songs, and it is great to hear new material so soon after the release of her latest  album "Human" (Review here). You can purchase her CDs on her official site.
