    "running out of ideas"??

    Time has proven you wrong! I will agree that the album is conventional, but then again, they weren't going for anything groundbreaking. For what it's worth "Snowed In" is one of 2 Christmas albums that this holiday humbug will listen to because it is genuine, heartfelt, and I love their harmony.

    Good Album

    This is a great Christmas album. The three songs that they wrote on is are incredible and show just how amazingly talented they all are. The desearve more respect in the music industry than what they get.
