Grammy-nominated pop group Hanson has released their highly anticipated holiday album, “Finally It’s Christmas” on October 27.

It opens with the uplifting and infectious title track, “Finally It’s Christmas,” which instantly lures the listeners into this new collection of holiday tunes. It immediately breaks into the up-tempo “A Wonderful Christmas Time” and the timeless classic “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.”

They display a tremendous deal of energy on the new original track “Til New Years Night,” and they slow down the pace with a stirring version of “Please Come Home.”

Equally fun is “Joy To The Mountain,” which is a neat gospel medley of “Go Tell It On The Mountain” and “Joy To The World,” and it works well. They showcase their ability to rock on “Jingle Bells” and “Happy Christmas,” while their version of “All I Want For Christmas” is refreshing and fun.

“Winter Wonderland” is sultry and refreshing. Their vocals on “Blue Christmas” are pure like the driven snow, and the album closes on a captivating note with “Peace on Earth” and the perennial classic “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” where they leave their dedicated fans and listeners yearning for more.

The Verdict
