Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship + Giveaway HOP!

December 1, 2015

Sponsored Review

My first "real" job was at age 15 at an Arby's in our local mall where most of my high school jobs would be. Restaurant and retail jobs mean evenings, weekends, and listening to the same loop of music over and over and over again (mercifully, the loop changed monthly). Aerosmith's Jaded still takes me back to my sophomore year of high school in the mall's food court.

It also means Christmas music in a loop...over and over and over again. I came to hate any and all Christmas music.

I've since gotten over that (except for The Christmas Song, which I'm pretty sure I'll hate for life. Why must everybody cover that song!?). Case in point? Chris Tomlin just released a Christmas CD-Adore: Christmas Songs Of Worship . It arrived in my office for review on November 18, a good week and a half before Thanksgiving.



You know what I did?

I ripped that sucker out of the bubble mailer and popped it into my work laptop. Thanks to headphones, no one need know I was listening to Christmas tunes so early.



It's an interesting album; the subtitle turns out to be perfectly fitting as the first few songs felt more like songs of worship than songs of Christmas, though those appear later in the track list. All the songs, of course, have Tomlin's mellow, soothing tone. If you love Christmas music, you'll appreciate the uniqueness of this album, If you hate it, you'll appreciate that this isn't another cliche collection of upbeat covers; this might be the one Christmas album you'll be willing to tolerate.

Either way, Flyby promotions kindly sent me this CD for review and agreed to let me give another copy away. Plus, I'm throwing in another $10 to Amazon for any last minute Christmas shopping! Simply enter below, then keep scrolling for a list of more giveaways!
