Needless to say, I was excited to discover the Pentatonix 6 song Christmas EP titled "PTXmas". This is total ear candy. The thing that impresses me most, is the fine line the group walked in giving each song a fresh sound, without losing the classic, familiar feel of these well known tunes. Again, the arrangements are spot on and just cool. Of course, the vocal performances are nothing short of breathtaking.
It would be hard to pick a favorite from the EP...but if forced, the complexity of Carol of the Bells would probably sway my decision. Here are all of the tracks:
- Angels We Have Heard on High
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel
- Carol of the Bells
- The Christmas Song
- O Holy Night
- This Christmas
So here are your instructions...
- Buy and download the entire E.P.
- Get dumbfounded when you remember there are no instruments being used!
- Thank me later.
