Josh Wilson is a new to me artist and I only discovered him after receiving his Christmas album to review on my blog a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say, I’ll most definitely be checking out his other albums as his album his very first full length Christmas album “Noel”, has really impressed me!
On this album there are 10 songs and length runs about 35 minutes long. This to date is one of the most unique Christian Christmas albums I’ve owned. The instruments played (which are many) are done so in such a way that they are spotlighted and really bring such a sound to each of the song unlike any other I’ve heard. And speaking of spotlighting, a neat thing is that each of the instruments pictured on the album cover are featured from an accordion to a banjo. It’s been a total delight to my ears!
My favorite tracks on the album are hard to pick because they are all so great in their own ways! But if I had to pick I’d have to say I really enjoyed the instrumental tracks which are Noel & Carol of the Bells! I could easily play those two songs on repeat all day long! Oh, and the song “Once a Year” which features Andrew Peterson is really great. It’s words talk about how good it is to do for others for more than just once time around the year as Christ called us to.
Overall, I highly recommend this album! It’s a joyful up beat album that celebrates a season of joy and happiness that should be experienced year round. This album can transform, remind, and encourage listeners to remember the true meaning and reason of the season that should be played out all year long.
