There are Christmas albums, and then there are Christmas albums. “ChristmasAD – The First Snow” is an outstanding collection of instrumental Christmas music that’s appeal is that everyone is going to enjoy it! A good Christmas album should contain some old classics plus some familiar pop titles to warm you on a cold winter evening as you sit by the fireside. So on this collection there are eight favourites, expertly re-imagined, plus eleven brand new Christmas songs that perfectly reflect the Christmas spirit, but not overly so, and that’s the success of this superb collection. It’s obvious throughout that this is seasonal music, but it has a gorgeous abstract feel to it and often the music hints at Christmas with the expert subtly we’ve come to expect from the folk at AD Music, making for an album that’s incredibly easy to listen to.
The collective artists on AD Music have really excelled here, presenting an emotive and memorable collection of Christmas tunes that delicately, and without exception, successfully walk the line between feel good, beautiful melodic music and contemporary, creative, classically influenced new age, electronic music.  Beautifully recorded and produced, this is one classy album that is destined to run and run. Without doubt,  Christmas Music for the 21st Century.

“Christmas music that’s appeal is that everyone is going to enjoy it”.
