4.0 out of 5 stars Managed Expectations Make This a Good Christmas CD October 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
When I heard Casting Crowns was releasing a Christmas CD, I couldn't wait. I love their music for taking the familiar and making me look at it in a fresh way. So when I got this CD I was a little disappointed with the play list. It is mostly familiar carols. But once I started listening to it, that feeling went away.

Yes, the familiar carols are here and are plentiful. Yet they sound beautiful. There are gorgeous harmonies on "O Come All Ye Faithful." The guitar is fun on "Joy to the World." "Sweet Little Jesus Boy" gets a new melody. With a string background, it sounds like a lullaby. And the instrumental version of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" is absolutely breathtaking. It is written for violin but the interplay between it and the piano (and to a lesser extent the orchestra) is haunting.

Only one song on here is truly new. "Christmas Offering" is a praise song, and I truly enjoy it. I've only heard "God is with Us" recorded one other place, by Amy Grant on the Gloria project. This version doesn't stray far away from the original. In fact, it is sung entirely by one of the female members of the group.

And that brings us to "While You Were Sleeping." When I first heard them sing it on LIFESONG, I thought it sounded like a Christmas song. Apparently, it originally was. The only change here is the second verse. Instead of going to Jerusalem, it focuses on the hardships of Mary and the baby that first night. The song sounds the same. And it includes the third verse that focuses on America. I'm still not a fan of that verse, but I have softened to it some over the years.

But I've saved the best for last. The disc opens with a new melody for "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," including a new chorus sung by a boy's choir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Christmas CD I've Heard November 13, 2008
By Singer
Format:Audio CD
I had heard Casting Crowns singing "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" and decided I would buy this CD just for that song. But, as expected from this great group, the other songs are wonderful, too. I will be playing this CD alot during the Christmas season and will still enjoy it after Christmas has come and gone. Even though the songs they are performing are traditional Christmas songs, they sound new, so I find myself listening to the words with new meaning. In one word, I rate this CD as "Wonderful".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! November 11, 2008
By A. York
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was worried that this was going to be Casting Crowns slightly odd take on traditional Christmas music but I was dead wrong. Many of the songs are in the style of Casting Crowns regular music and are really great songs. Mixed in with that are traditional songs done in upbeat but traditional ways. I hesitate to use the word contemporary, because the songs stay true to their traditional arrangements most of the time, they are just performed really well.

Great Album!!! Buy it for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Love. October 25, 2010
By kvist
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alright. Pure love!! It is the most beautiful music with a twist of melancholy, but not enough to make the listener sad. Only enough to give the chills. And - at the same time it gives me the cheerful christmas mood. I like the fact that casting crowns are combining rock, old psalms (I love old psalms!) with new harmonies, strings, and a few songs they wrote themselves. There are violins or cellos in almost every number. Georgeous. Lovely. Oh just buy it already!!! You won't be disappointed. That would only be because I love it so dearly, that after reading this you're expectations have increased too much... ... What am I talking about. Nonsense! No matter how high your expectations are, they will be met. This is magic. Heaven. Pure Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding as usual December 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's Casting Crowns, what more is there to say? As usual this wonderful Christian band hits the mark. From the opening song "I heard the Bells on Christmas Day" to the more traditional "Joy to the World" this album is a must have. Let's face it, anything by Casting Crowns is a must have.

The first time I heard "While You were Sleeping" on the Lifesong Album I knew it was a Christmas song. It speaks of the little town of Bethleham and continues through to the USA; all sleeping while Christ was busy changing lives and saving souls. This new version speaks of the trials and hardships of Mary and the baby on that first night. Either version is an eye-opener.

One of the things that I really like about Casting Crowns is their use of orchestra. One is again treated to this wonderful music on this album. The instrumental version of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" takes your breath away. Every song on the CD has the wonderful guitar music and the outstanding blending of voices that is Casting Crowns.

Don't take my word for it, buy the CD. Buy anything by Casting Crowns and you will be a fan forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed hearing title song! January 1, 2011
By M
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this CD after hearing the title song when I was driving home alone.. in a snowy mess from a Christmas program in Chicago! I was touched and inspired knowing that having Christ in me is peace... and oh how I wished more people in the world could know what they are missing. It is the 1st song, "Heard The Bells on Christmas Day". Just listen to the words. I started sobbing when I heard their version of this song that night. I will never forget that moment. It was put in my heart that I will somehow, someday, find a way to help others find this peace too. It may be in a small way..but it will be. God is not sleeping! He is here for all of us!

The whole CD is great. The Casting Crowns really are talented! I applaud them!
