Overview

Bryan White continues his journey out of country and into pop on this six-song holiday fest, which finds him sounding more than ever like a down-home Backstreet Boy. The songs are smooth, contemporary R&B-flavored renderings of familiar (such as "Winter Wonderland") and new songs, highlighted by a dramatic interpretation of John Jarvis's tender "One Bright Star (This Christmas Night)."

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Maria Konicki Dinoia
My guess is that Bryan White did not have too many dreams of Christmas, given that there are only six songs on this album. Among them are a few of the old standards and an original or two, but each song sounds a little too much like the other. White puts some funk into old standards like "I'll Be Home for Christmas" with his sprightly pop vocals, and then he does the same with the originals, again employing his sprightly pop vocals. What Dreaming of Christmas lacks in originality, it makes up for in character with White's earnest voice.
