More of the same.

This isn't different at all from the first effort of this band. I find the music to be even cheesier and horrendous. Although my two reviews of the band have been extremely negative so far, I think this band is incredible. Some of their adaptations and reworking of classic Christmas songs are jaw-dropping. It's just that this band can throw so many bad songs on an album to completely water it down to being just about nothing. The choice in the vocals could be one of the worst experiences I have had in being a listener to music.

'The March of the Kings' and 'The Three Kings and I' are really just about it on this album. The rest of the album might contain a children's choir here and there, or a group sounding like the eagles singing accompanied by an acoustic guitar ballad. I was once again very disappointed to how an incredible live act could put such horrid music on a disc. 1.5 stars for just two worthy songs.
