Travis Tritt is a rocker trapped in a country singer's career, and nowhere is that clearer than here on the rousing rock renditions of "Winter Wonderland" and "Silver Bells." Like Dwight Yoakham's five-star Christmas disc, Tritt's album could be played any time of year and the references to Christmas would merely be footnotes. This is a tough, musically minded assortment of cool originals and choice covers, whether it's the homage to Buck Owens on the Buck classics "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy" and "All I Want for Christmas Dear Is You," or the knockout vocal performance of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" done like a '50s rock & roll ballad. Tritt momentarily goes quiet on a touching version of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day." But even on these two, Tritt is singing like the world depended on it. What a great record! --Martin Keller

No more masking his voices

"The greatest thing I noticed right away about ths album, is the "closeness" of his voice. In all his other albums, his voice is always masked by the other instruments around him. But here, he put his voice up front so you can here all the details. It's very personable. The second thing I love is the diversity of the music. From Rock to blues to ballet, the album is a great pick to slip into Pre-Christmas mood!"
