Album Review by Joseph Timmons: Xombiewoof Magazine
Earth, Wind & Fire has been and still is on the cutting edge of R&B, time and time again their albums have made the top of the list of every chart possible, so it is no wonder that this iconic group would come out with a holiday celebration album that merges traditional songs of Joy with new creations of inspiration.
Simply named Holiday, the newest and soon to be revered offering by Earth, Wind & Fire, brings the reason for the season home with enchanting stylizing of the traditional favorites, Winter Wonderland, Sleigh Ride, Jingle Bell Rock, Joy to the World, yet also gives us new original compositions titled Every day is Christmas, Happy Seasons and December which are illuminating and uplifting.
Holiday is Earth, Wind & Fire’s 21st studio album, their last album, Now, Then & Forever, also under the Legacy label debuted in the top of the Billboard 200 on its release in 2013, one of the bands highest charting albums.
Holiday is an inspiring testament to the joy of faith and in the belief of brotherhood and unity through love and understanding, and under the guiding light of the eternal spirit, we are one. Start this Holiday season off right and give yourself this gift of music, forged by Earth, Wind & Fire, and May the spirit of peace guide you home.
On the Legacy Recordings Label, Available Nationally through Retailers and on Amazon.com
