Editorial Reviews

Finally, the perfect CD for music lovers who appreciate a great song, and are burnt out on typical holiday fare. Over The Rhine's Snow Angels is unlike any holiday record you've ever heard. This collection of ten, brand new, original songs, many of which feel destined to become modern Christmas classics, conjures the Joni Mitchell's "The River" or John Lennon's "The War is Over," and yet the recordings embodied in Snow Angels have a unique groove all their own.

Format: Audio CD
In 1996, Over the Rhine released a Christmas album called "The Darkest Night of the Year" that consisted mostly of originals and a few reworked Christmas traditionals, and the album was an immediate 'hit' with OtR fans. The album was a strong reason for the very successful annual Christmas tour the band continues to make to this day, and over the years the band introduced several Christmas originals at those shows, prompting the question "when can we expect a new collection of Christmas songs?". Well, that question has finally been answered.

"Snow Angels" (12 tracks; 43 min.) starts off with one those concert classics, "All I Ever Get for Christmas Is Blue", a fabulous song and it's nice to finally get the studio version. "Darling (Christmas Is Coming") and "White Horse" are in the same vein (also also concert staples). "Goodbye Charles" is a piano-jazzy instrumental. "Snowed In With You" is a prime example of why this album works s well: a light, jazzy tone, with an irresistable winter/Christmas undertone. This album contains nothing but originals, and works terrific from start to finish. How many contemporary artists can bring a Christmas album without any covers, and actually pull it off? Well OtR has on "Snow Angels". Karin Bergquist's lead vocals sounds as warm as ever, and the perfect voice for a Christmas album as you settle in for the night in front of the open fire.

In all, "Snow Angels" is a terrific, if long delayed, follow-up to "The Darkest Night of the Year", and in fact may even have topped it. Please note that the band actually self-released this album in November, 2006, and now this is getting a much-deserved national release.

I've never written a review but Amazon emailed me with the opportunity and this is a terrific cd, so here goes. I'm a Christmas Rock nut, have made several Christmas mixes (120 minutes each), and have everything from Stevie Nix's "Silent Night" to Mary Karlzen's "Run Rudolph Run" to Wall of Voodoo's "Shouldn't Have Given Him a Gun for Christmas", etc. While it's crazy to call anything the best, this may well be the best individual artist Christmas cd made. I've been a kinda-fan of Over the Rhine for a long time, and "All I Need is Everything" is one of my favorite songs. But this Christmas CD is spectacular, especially considering the album is nearly all original songs. The rare covers ("Little Town" and "One Olive Jingle) and are remade with clever and unique arrangements. The CD is rock, blues and a pinch of jazz, and offers a fine variety of songs, all the way from the splendid "All I ever get for Christmas is Blue" to the pop, catchy and fun "Darlin' (Christmas is Coming)" to the sad and wistful title track. I highly recommend Snow Angels.

You may never listen to another Christmas album like Over the Rhine's SNOW ANGELS. You may end up listening to no other.

OtR brings to Yuletide their bedazzling touch with the blues and their stupendous way with a lyric. Christmas is before all else a Christian celebration, which to this reviewer causes a bit of a squirm when devoutly secular artists toss off an album to the cause (are you out there, Sarah McLachlan?). OtR does not posture itself within that bandwidth we call `contemporary Christian'. So what do they do with, say, a manger?

The short answer: lots.

OtR is not so much Christian in the popular sense as they are theological in the existential sense. Rather than traffic in the clichés of a religious movement they probe to the deep structure from which those movements emerge and, in their best moments, nourish themselves. The OtR soul has trafficked heavily not only in biblical motifs but also the (post-)Amish and camp meeting millieus that sink their roots deeply into that material and its ever-renewing traditions.

What to do, the, with the season?:

In `Darling (Christmas is Coming)':

Tear these thorns from my heart
Help the healing to start
Let's set this old world free
Let's start with you and me

Darlin' Christmas is coming
Salvation bells are ringing
Darlin' Christmas is coming
Do you believe in angels singing
Darin' the snow is falling
Falling like forgiveness from the sky

The tentacles of that last phrase reach out in several directions, several of them organically connected to what Christians still like to call `Advent'. The fierce warrior angel Gabriel and a number of things virtually fall from the sky in the gospels' infancy narratives.

I rarely enjoy Christmas albums, but this is one I'm going to treasure for a long time to come. The first two tracks are probably my favorite, especially the more upbeat "Darlin' (Christmas Is Coming)". This entire album invokes feelings of sitting by the window with hot cider and watching the snow fall as there's a fire crackling somewhere behind you. Waiting, waiting for your love to come home. I definitely recommend this album to anyone who enjoys good music, and I guess to anyone who enjoys Christmas music as well, haha. I'll still be listening to this come June and July though.
