2 stars 'Christmas Through Your Eyes' - Paul Cusick (Single)

The fact that this is a Christmas track doesn't do much for my appreciation. Much of the holiday music I've heard in my time (especially contemporary holiday music) has sounded very superficial and hollow to my ears, and it's generally not worth listening to at all. However, Paul Cusick did impress me with his debut release 'Focal Point,' so I figured there wouldn't be too much harm in checking this song out.

The song itself is fairly well written, with a very catchy chorus. However, the whole thing sounds just a bit cheesy; not helped by the fact there are horn sections towards the end and whimsical synth melodies sprinkled throughout.

In terms of the actual music and performance, I would have to agree that the song sounds a bit like Pink Floyd, or even Porcupine Tree. However, there is a really optimistic tone here, making the song alot more cheery than one might be used to from an atmospheric rock artist. A decent song with a cheesy message behind it.
