Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

Sheryl Crow - Home for Christmas

None December 24th, 2008



A low-key collection of Christmas songs, pop (and occasional country), singer Sheryl Crow's "Home for Christmas" features an unexciting, but not un-welcoming, lineup of holiday standards.

The Christmas warmth is particularly tepid with Crow's renditions of "White Christmas" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas." Her voice is always good, but this is the singer at perhaps her most uninteresting. Behind a bigger band on the gospel-inspired "Go Tell It on the Mountain," Crow lyrically riffs and is more entertaining.

"The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)," with a laid-back, almost reggae feel, is an album highlight, but you won't be thanking Santa for her take on "All Through the Night," "Blue Christmas" or "O Holy Night."

Like a present you expect, but don't really want, "Home for Christmas" isn't awful, but it's definitely not awesome.
