Released in 2006, ONE MORE DRIFTER IN THE SNOW finds indie-pop artist Aimee Mann settling in to a warm, cozy set of Christmas tunes. Inspired by classic holiday records of the 1940s and '50s, Mann brings sincerity and elegance to her selection of Yuletide standards, as best revealed on a delicate rendition of "I'll Be Home for Christmas," which features a spacious, string-tinged arrangement that leaves plenty of room for her beautifully plaintive voice. In addition to a playful version of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" (narrated by Grant-Lee Phillips), Mann offers up the self-penned "Calling on Mary" and "Christmastime," written by her husband, Michael Penn. The song choices and skillful delivery result in an inviting and consistently brilliant Christmas album.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.85) - "Christmas mostly pushes her toward something strangely resembling good cheer." -- Grade: B
Uncut (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Mann treats the 10 songs as a meditation on love, loss and nostalgia."
