Album Review: Kem - 'What Christmas Means'

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

There are typically two types of holiday albums: secular and spiritual. The secular kind typically ignores the spiritual aspects of the holiday in favor of all-around good cheer and is exemplified by singalong jams like "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," "Winter Wonderland" and "Frosty the Snowman." Spiritual albums, on the other hand, embrace the original meaning behind the holiday and usually consist of remakes of such spiritual songs as "Joy to the World," "Silent Night" and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing." What Christmas Means, which was released in the U.S. Oct. 16, 2012 and is the first Christmas album by Detroit-based R&B singer Kem, definitely leans more toward the spiritual category; it's a collection of new and classic holiday-themed tunes that has its share of secular songs, but for the most part pays loving tribute to the true meaning of the holiday season.
