"This is a truly uplifting collection of Christian Christmas songs, both familiar and new. I especially liked "O Come, O Come, Emmauel" by Steven Curtis Chapman, and "All Is Well Tonight" by CeCe Winans. I heartily recommend this recording!"
Some good stuff here and there, but mostly jazzed up and "up

"GOD WITH US is for the most part a feeble attempt by CCM's most talented musicians to bring timeless Christmas carols "up to date." Most of these are simply jazzed up with fast notes and stylized tunes, while the performing musicians almost immediately forget that these songs were already masterpieces and had no need for improvement. You might as well take a work of DaVinci or Rembrandt and apply some magic markers to it to bring it more up to date and acceptable for today's audiences.
The redeeming songs which earned this CD two stars from me instead of one included the ever-melodic "Sweet Little Jesus Boy" by Chris Willis and the breath of fresh air by Sandi Patty, "Child of Peace," which features Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring."
Although I've always been a huge fan of contemporary Christian music, I will be staying away from most CCM Christmas albums in the future."
I've had better!!

"I bought this cd because there were a few songs on there that i liked. However, while it is ok, I do not find this arrangement of Christmas songs the best. I have much better. Even the songs that initially drew me to this cd weren't as good as i thought."
