Album Review: Earth, Wind & Fire - Holiday

20 November 2014 | 1:11 pm | Darren Collins

They’ve captured the spirit of the season perfectly.

Disco-funk-soul legends Earth Wind & Fire bring their trademark glittery falsetto harmonies and blasting brass section back for Christmas, yet far from a predictable collection of cheese, they revise well-worn hymns and carols in a range of styles.

Away In A Manger and O Come All Ye Faithful receive reverent gospel-soul versions, The Drummer Boy gets an Afro-beat feel, Sleigh Ride a reggae bounce and Winter Wonderland becomes a disco wonderland. Even their classic, September, is re-worked as, yes, December. Christmas is all about the good times, and they’ve captured the spirit of the season perfectly.
