All Music Guide - Heather Phares
98 Degrees This Christmas features the popular vocal quartet interpreting traditional holiday tunes like "O Holy Night," "Ave Maria," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Silent Night," and "I'll Be Home for Christmas." The album also includes new Christmas songs like "This Gift," "If Every Day Could Be Christmas," and "Christmas Ain't the Same Without You," and will surely please the group's legions of fans.

    A Christmas Album You'll Listen To Every Holiday Season

    This is a great cd. I heard ''This Gift'' on the radio and loved it so much I bought the album. I've enjoyed all the songs on it very much. It's brought out every Christmas along with all my holiday favorites.
