|Save All Your Love|
Save All Your Love is a short song in the poppy/prog mode of early Anderson solo work (Song of Seven era).
|Easier Said Than Done|
This composition has a feel somewhat in-between Anderson`s Animation period and the sound of Jon and Vangelis. The Vangelis link is definitely understandable, since Vangelis is credited with the writing on this one.
An Anderson arrangement of a traditional Christmas song, this one is heavily vocal based. The music is quite electronically founded, again somewhat in an Animation era mode.
|Forest of Fire|
Jungle sounds begin this cut, a percussive, rhythm based number.
|Ding Dong Merrily on High|
Another traditional Christmas song, this arrangement is quite lush, featuring layered vocals and bells. It is sort of a modernized, but yet conventional arrangement.
|Save All Your Love (Reprise)|
This is a somewhat different rendition of the album opener.
|The Holly And The Ivy|
The Holly And The Ivy is another cut which seems to capture a traditional Christmas spirit while bringing to it more modern textures.
|Day of Days|
A Jamaican texture pervades the early segments of this cut, bringing it into sharp contrast with the rest of the album. The number is at times a lushly orchestrated pop/rock number with some musical surprises.
A very brief and traditional sounding Anderson original Christmas number, this one is a definite winner.
|Where Were You?|
Another Anderson composed Christmas song, this one is in the electro-pop-rock style of Animation.
|Oh Holy Night|
A traditional Christmas song, this is arranged in quite a fresh manner, and features a soulful female vocal break.
|How It Hits You|
How It Hits You is an electronic Anderson original.
This charming and brief rendition is sung by Anderson`s daughter Jade, who, at the time was quite young.
