It is now officially the beginning of the Christmas season (even though it is only around Halloween) as I've had to review my first Christmas CD. This one from Melissa Etheridge is exactly what you would expect from her as it is full of rocky versions of Christmas standards and her passionate vocals. It is full of holiday songs (as opposed to religious ones) that focus on peace and love. She has also written a few original songs like "Ring the Bells" and "Light a Light" that are placed in the middle of the traditional ones. Get ready for the season of "ho, ho, ho" as they are coming.
