Love, Peace & Joy is an entertaining collection of classic carols and holiday songs performed by several popular CCM and contemporary gospel on the Cadence Communications roster, including Erin O'Donnell, Shaded Red, Joel Hanson, Nectarine and Chris Rodriguez. While most of this album is fairly low-key (albeit enjoyably so), Nectarine picks things up a bit with "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." Also of note are Chris Rodriguez's jazzy take on "Joy to the World," O'Donnell's catchy original "I Need Christmas" and Hanson's two new songs ("Look to You," "What Christmas Really Means"), which are fine MOR pop.
