Matthew West – Unto Us: A Christmas Collection


Matthew West
Unto Us: A Christmas Collection

On his second holiday album, West focuses on the vocals. The soundtrack is so very subtle that you can fixate on the words and the vocal sounds and not be distracted by too much instrumentation. Of course, a little variety is nice too and on “Jingle Bells” he whips it up with a horn section that’s unbeatable. However, West brings it right back down with the tender song “The Heart of Chrsitmas.” Most impressive is his rendition of “O Holy Night,” which is not an easy song to tackle. West does an amazing job on this and all of the others on “Unto Us: A Christmas Collection.”
