There may be nothing but the standard Christmas fare on the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra's Christmas with the Pops, but the key difference is in the performance. Under the direction of Erich Kunzel, a true master of his style, the orchestra positively sails through these 19 numbers, turning in graceful, moving, and unpredictable performances of these well-loved tunes. Instrumental holiday albums rarely come as inviting and engaging as this. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
