This Christmas Time

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Sticking closely to the sound and style of its chart-topping singles, Lonestar employ the bracing tenor of lead singer Richie McDonald and some lively country and pop arrangements in advancing a pleasant set of familiar Christmas songs. Working with Dann Huff, who produced SheDaisy's adventurous holiday disc Brand New Year, the quartet dip into some lilting R&B rhythms on "If Every Day Could Be Christmas," settle into a gently swinging groove on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and get low-down and bluesy on the album-opening "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town."

Barnes & Noble - David McGee

Working with Dann Huff, who produced SheDaisy's adventurous holiday disc Brand New Year, the quartet dip into some lilting R&B rhythms on "If Every Day Could Be Christmas," settle into a gently swinging groove on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and get low-down and bluesy on the album-opening "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town."

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
Lonestar's collection of holiday tunes done in their pop-country style. Fans of their crossover hit "Amazed" will know what to expect and will probably find it enjoyable. They sound most natural playing their own material like "Reason for the Season" and the title track.
