If you want a real PC Christmas, with veggie turkey and Linda McCartney's new cookery book under your biodynamically grown Christmas tree, wrapped in recycled paper, then Winter, Fire & Snow is probably the Christmas album for you. Nobodys like Deep Forest and Amina team up with politically correct artists like Manu Dibango and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, all in the spirit of good cause but bad taste. Together they have come up with a terrible mix of a "Christmas" record that, if it wasn't for Mary Karlzen's contribution, immediately would have made me convert to Jehova's Witnesses. Robbie Robertson contributes his seven year old solo version of the Christmas classic "Christmas Must Be Tonight" and Norwegian Bel Canto probably increases the novelty effect for Christmas-loving Americans. Imagine, a tune from the home of Santa Claus!
-- Tor Milde, BEAT Music Magazine (translated from Norwegian)

Robbie's solo version of "Christmas..." is from the 1988 soundtrack album Scrooged.
