Product Description

Aly & AJ present their first Holiday CD. The first single 'Greatest Time of the Year' will be featured in the marketing campaign for the Walt Disney movie Santa Claus 3.

Amazon.com

By teen-pop standards, Aly & AJ make a bold move on on their first holiday album and second disc. Instead of fizzing up the figgy pudding or decking the hall with a bunch of flashy hip-hop beats, they play it straight--"Silent Night" is justly peaceful (heavenly, even), "Let It Snow" lands as softly as a blanket of the newly fallen white stuff, and "Joy to the World" holds up its heartfelt peace sign by way of classic old-fashioned carol-crooning. Clearly the girls got a little giddy going through their parents' holiday music collection while conceiving this disc, and clearly they were thinking beyond its commercial prospects (how many underage starlets would challenge their cash-strapped core demographic with "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"?). Yet Acoustic Hearts, apparently, do not beat by yuletide sincerity and good-girl harmonizing alone--in an overt but not unlikable nod to the teen need to kick out the holiday jams, Aly & AJ let loose on three tracks: "Deck the Halls" gets into a George Michael-inspired groove, and two originals--one happy ("The Greatest Time of Year") and one sad ("Not This Year")--plumb the meaning of the annual sugarplum dance to semi-rockin' beats. -Tammy La Gorce

Aly & AJ's new CD is a wonderful collection of religious & popular Christmas songs. The talented two sisters do an excellent job invoking the spirit of Christmas. This Cd would make an excellent Christmas gift for anyone in your family. Buy it today and get in the Christmas spirit early- after all we can use as much peace on earth and goodwill to men as possible!

Aly & AJ have made it clear that they are deeply religious. Up to now, their songs did not reflect their spiritual side. The album starts with an upbeat original "Greatest Time of Year", but it is "Joy To The World", "We Three Kings", and "The First Noel" that sung, simply and clearly, reflect their love for Jesus Christ and the purpose of the album. Their sincerity is evident. The last song, another original, "Not This Year" is somber and acknowledges the fact that it is all right not to feel joyous during the holiday season; the complete opposite of the first song. Overall, I am impressed by Aly & AJ's restraint in tinkering with the classics.

THey did the classic Christmas songs, with the pop stuff that we already know and love. Way better than all those other Christmas CDs because they do the songs right, not making them hip hop like all of the rest of them do.

They did a great job on this one:

Greatest Time of Year: This one rox! 5/5

Joy to the World: Wonderful! 4/5

We 3 Kings: Great Song! 4/5

The First Noel: Wow! That's all I have to say! 4/5

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen: Very Nice! I hadn't heard it before this CD, but it is great! 5/5

Silent Night: This one really brings out their voices! 5/5

I'll be Home for Christmas: Pretty and beautiful! 5/5

Let it Snow: Nice melody! 5/5

Deck the Halls: They had fun with this one! 5/5

Little Drummer Boy: THe rythm rocks! 5/5

Not this Year: Reminds me of CHemicals React! It rocks! It is about someone who feels the holidays aren's something to celebrate for. 5/5

This CD shows that they don't only do pop. They show a new side of them, while keeping the side that we already knew. IF YOU LIKE CHRISTMAS AND ALISON (ALY)AND AMANDA (AJ), THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS CD!

Wow...this is Aly and AJ's best CD ever. I love Aly and AJ's first CD Into the Rush but this time Aly and AJ have done a greater job. My favorite songs would have to be Not This Year and Greatest Time of Year. Not This Year has a great beat, and a totally understandable meaning. I really think it sounds like Chemicals React. Greatest Time of Year is also really cool because it has excellent music and it has been the most popular in the CD. I love the video of it, and I think it goes really good with Santa Clause 3. If you love this CD, I would recommend Hannah Montana,The Cheetah Girls,Vanessa Hudgens, JoJo and many other pop/rock artists!

I was blown away when I listened to this CD. It shows their deeply spiritual side, that isn't shown in the first 2 CD's. After I listened to it, I was so in the Christmas spirit, I couldn't wait! (and it's only september) This is definitely one of the best CD's I've ever bought. YOU ROCK ALY & AJ!!!

Fresh with youthful exuberance, the Christmas spirit is renewed throughout this beautiful acoustic pop album that begins with a high-energy rendition of "Greatest Time of the Year."

Aly and AJ's voices then mellow into silky dreams of angelic textures as they take the listener on a Christmas journey that is modern, while retaining its original spirit. Time to make cookies and hot chocolate! All your classic favorites are here and this album is perfect for afternoons of baking or decorating the tree.

After releasing their debut album, 'Into the Rush', two times, Aly & AJ take a break from teen pop-rock to sing their favorite holiday songs.

'Acoustic Hearts of Winter' is a wonderful compilation of both new and old holiday hits from the classic "Deck the Halls" to Aly & AJ's upbeat Christmas anthem "Greatest Time of Year". As the title suggests, Aly & AJ perform a majority of the songs in an acoustic style including "We Three Kings", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Silent Night", "The First Noel", and "Joy To The World".

But, Aly & AJ do not ditch their signature teen pop-rock roots; they give "The Little Drummer Boy" a modern day spin, while the album's two original tracks ("Greatest Time of Year", "Not This Year") sound like holiday versions of "Chemicals React" and/or "Rush".

'Acoustic Hearts of Winter' is a wonderful holiday album, and yet another great CD from this talented teen duo, that will surely get you ready for this holiday season.
