Album Review ~ Irwin’s Christmas Collection By Matthew Parker

Category General/Mixed Genre Electronic/Pop/Christmas Rating 4 Stars Review Matthew Parker’s Irwin’s Christmas Collection is an interesting EP with an edge, with each of the four songs being a distinct number in it’s own category—from the hilarious Mistletoe Meltdown to the speedy 12 Days of Christmas, to the thrilling Carol of the Bell with a James Bond vibe and danger element, to the worshipful Kindle that tells and honors the birth of Christ, there’s never a dull moment start to finish.
