The New Best Christmas Album

For years I’ve recommended Sufjan Steven’s 5 EP Christmas Box Set (Spotify) as the best Christmas music going. This year, something else has taken over: Bifrost Art’s Salvation is Created (iTunes). It’s epic, dark, and all in the minor key, as all true Christmas records should be. It’s also wonderfully Christian and Jesus honouring. It Also in some complicated way involves Sufjan Stevens anyway. Out of Heaven (Spotify) is probably the winnowing track –if you like this one you’ll like the rest– but the album deserves playing from start to finish.
