Waggett Declan's Celtic Flute Christmas is exactly what it says, a collection of Christmas favorites played in a Celtic folk style on the flute. Despite the competent playing and lush arrangements, the album still tends to drag in spots and loses steam on a few of the songs. Still, the album is quite relaxing and would definitely make for good background music in a holiday situation. Fans of the genre may have more of a use for it than that suggestion, but casual listeners may have a problem with the feeling of sameness that looms over this album.
