The Reviews

John Platt, WFUV

"My annual ritual is to trim the Christmas tree with a glass of eggnog nearby and a soundtrack of my favorite holiday albums. This year I'll definitely add Just One Angel 2.0 to the mix. The songs are both sweet and sardonic, so it'll put me in the mood, but help me keep a healthy (and humorous) perspective."
