The season can almost put us in a reflective, nostalgic sadness. Christmas again, whoa.
Steven Eaton is all maudlin all season looking over pictures and reminisces in “Christmas Again.” Jazzy, but more sad pop than blues.
Ryan Patrick and friends mine the childhood fields for their ethereal “Christmas Again.” It’s almost medieval in its look back.
Romance springs eternal, but winters year-by-year. Kimmie Rhodes whispers the country promise of “One More White Christmas” reminding her of every other one without you forever after. You breaking up with him?
Drakeford swings and sways but tinges the festivity of “Christmas Again” with pop bummer-ness. Don’t fret, kids, he’s keeping it forward-pointing.
