Editorial Reviews

Originally formed a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the a cappella group has reassembled and reemerged after their video for 'The 12 Days of Christmas' became a phenomenon with almost 8 million views on YouTube. In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing and vocal pro-tooling, Straight No Chaser is the real deal- the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense...and with a sense of humor.

This album is a PERFECT addition to your Christmas CD collection! There are classic Christmas songs, NEW Christmas songs, and twists of your favorites. You MUST listen! These guys are fantastic!!

My favorites are (of course) The 12 Days of Christmas (absolutely amazing!!!!), Santa Claus is Coming To Town, Indiana Christmas (original song that is wonderful...especially since I'm from Indiana!), and my favorite of all....Auld Lang Syne. You've never heard Auld Lang Syne arranged like this before!

It's amazing! Buy it today!!!! I'm already in the Christmas spirit and it's not even November yet! :)

Straight No Chaser's "Holiday Spirits" is a must have addition to your Christmas music collection. While you may have many of these songs already in your collection, Dan Ponce and Walter Chase's arrangements and the tight a cappella harmonies Straight No Chaser fuses together are more than worth adding repeats to your collection. They also include two original songs, "Christmas Wish" and "Indiana Christmas", written by Dan Ponce the founder of the group.

Their humor is never more apparent than in their live version of "The 12 Days of Christmas", the only live song on the album. The song truly encompasses the feeling of watching them on stage, which I have been privileged to do many times throughout the 10 years since they were formed.

Give it a listen, or two, or three, add it as a permanent feature on your iPod, in your CD player, and have a Merry Christmas!

After watching these guys on Youtube for over a year and loving their performances, I bought the cd in hopes they could keep the same beautiful harmonics and they didnt disappoint. AFter listening to the songs, I had to order more to give out as gifts this year. Couldnt think of a better way to spread the holiday cheer and share the passion and joy of the season. These guys have done a phenomenal job and I'm just thrilled they were able to share it with us.

Santa Claus is coming to town was arranged so beautifully, it became an instant favorite.

Jingle Bell Rock was always a favorite, but with their wonderful voices, it makes the instrumental version seem cheesy.

The Christmas song was never one of my personal faves, even with classic performers. But it fits perfectly with a 10 voice group that can show the true definition of how it SHOULD be done.

This Christmas is a fun song that you just cant hold still for. As soon as Jerome starts to sing, you cant help but bounce along.

Christmas Wish is a beautiful song and Dan Ponce did a fantastic job on the lyrics and arrangement.

Hark the Harald Angels Sing/Angels We Have Heard on High is a truly inspirational piece that brings out the feeling of the season. Their arrangement sounds like heaven opened up and allowed us the chance to hear a brief glimpse of perfection.

Little Saint Nick is probably one of my favorites. Like so many of their songs, they blew the original artists out of the water with their rendition!

12 Days of Christmas never gets old. I'm absolutely addicted to it. If I hear another version, I get mad and ask 'Where's Africa?" Now the song seems weak without it!

Indiana Christmas is another triumph by Dan.

I somehow missed the YouTube phenomenon last year of 12 Days of Christmas. My old favorite used to be Kenny Roger's version of having audience members come on stage to sing it with him with hilarious results. That is nothing compared to the way SNC does it. By far the best and most entertaining. This cd is a must have on your Christmas list. Every song is artfully done and a pleasure to listen to. Pure Christmas joy.

This is one of the best holiday CD's I now have in my collection. Never mind that I am biased after seeing this fantastic group in person at a Holiday concert earlier this week. They sound just as polished in person as they do on this CD. It is amazing that it is all acapella - you could swear that there are some instruments, but nope, its all them. And each singer puts his unique spin on the song that they headline.

Their harmonizing is increbile, reminiscent of the Beach Boys and Boys to Men, and they build off and compliment each other. The signature track is definitely their version of "The 12 Days of Christmas." They were "discovered" when the group was asked to do a ten year annivesary performance in 2006, one member posted old footage on You Tube for the members to get back into the spirit, only to make it a break out hit 18 months later when it swelled from 100,000 views to 6 million by Christmas 2007 (now currently over 9 million views on You Tube). A record deal followed and it was appropriate to issue a holiday collection.

Other stand out tracks include "This Christmas," "Carol of the Bells," "Silent Night," and probably the jazziest version of "Auld Lange Syne" you'll ever hear. The only song missing from their fantastic live show is a quiet, beauiful, and solemn rendition of "O Holy Night," which was a crowd pleaser in person. I can't say enough about this great group - I just love this CD! And now I cannot remember the original 12 days of Christmas...
