Joy to the World: White Christmas is a Reader's Digest-branded compilation that features a vocal group singing holiday chestnuts like "Jingle Bell Rock," "Winter Wonderland," and "I'll Be Coming Home for Christmas." The vocalists are accompanied by harps, doodle-doo basslines, and light jazz percussion -- this is a set straight out of Lawrence Welk's memory banks. But that's OK. It's cheery and painless, the musical equivalent of hot chocolate, fireplaces, and homemade sweaters.
