    The Process:
    Just a pleasure doing business with these people. My CD arrived on November 1rst with some extras! They deliver more than they promise. Just amazing. I’m a happy repeat customer. The Wagner business model should be studied and copied by all businesses hoping to stay in business.

    The Product:
    Best album so far. I have all of them and even their Orange vinyl album. Not really big Christmas person but love the entire album. Really balanced. Going to listen to it and love it all year.

    I listen to their music and feel groovy the whole rest of the day. Haven’t felt this way in a long time. Their love and grooviness touches people far and wide.

    Wunderbar Groovy Fab Festive

    Jacki Hopper (verified owner)

    The eagerly anticipation that was bestowed upon us all when MLT announced of this forthcoming album…. The Christmas Spirit amped full gear…. Even more thrilling, once Pre-ordered, the awaiting of Canada Post to deliver but in meantime, the download link that came with pre-order helped quench the anxiousness of when one could have actual CD in hand …

    Thoroughly Above and Beyond Impressed…
    What we have here is a Stellar, Exquisitely Enchanting Christmas Album that has resurrected the true meaning of Christmas Spirit with only the Groovy MLTBuzzWorthy Spin that Team MLT perfected and injected into this.

    We have 11 songs, some are familiar, one completely brand spanking original and destined to become the new standard classic in modern times :
    #1: ALL I WANT CHRISTMAS TO BE~
    A beautiful enchanting, Whimsical essence of a traditional song yet with a flair of modern equally intertwined to which one can embrace its charm and timeless appeal, it’s my Fave on the album.

    #2~ PEACE ON EARTH/LITTLE DRUMMER BOY:
    Both Mona and Lisa have picked up quite beautifully where Bing Crosby and David Bowie left off in this arousing and eminating rendition… You’re entranced and in Awe when you listen… I’m sure both the spirits of Bing and David approve!

    #3~ HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS:
    This offers up a retro-ish yet vibrant approach to this classic and the guitaring aspects with the ultimate vocal harmonization just works magic here, pure Bliss.

    #4~WINTER WONDERLAND:
    How can you not help but sing along to this, c’mon now, the pure enthusiasm stemming from the gals singing, can make but of the most bleajest horrible winter storms melt and see sunshine in the midst of winter’s cold… Delightfully Teacup Worthy.

    #5~ SNOW FALLS SOFTLY At NIGHT/

    A most elegant intertwining of the German and English lyrics of this German/Austrian favorite classic and the richness of the vocals and simplistic instrumentation to this piece just compliments each other and offers pleasure to one’s musical ears.

    6~IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME Of THE YEAR:
    This renders classic in every aspect from the instrumentation, music arrangement, vocals, one can’t help but become uplifted while listening, it offers Smiles of Joy.

    #7~ A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS TIME:

    I believe they’ve done Sir Paul proud on their interpretation of this Christmas classic, and the uke flavorings throughout song gives it a funky freshness that makes it come to life even more so…. Happy face kudos.

    #8~ WALKING IN THE AIR:
    Though I was not familiar with this song (Googled It Up To Find More Info on it), I enjoyed it from the get-go because the beautifully hauntingly vocals from Mona and Lisa on this song amplifies the essences that this song conjures with its lyrics and their instrumentation used on this song, compliments perfectly giving that Whimsical and Enchanting Christmas Magic Vibe, Spectacular memorizing to listen to.

    #9~ SANTA BABY:
    Well, just when you think you have heard great renditions, this one comes along, top notch, truly of their own making, and alive with jazz like tones musically, lyrics genius , it just oozes that Groovy sophisticated oomph you expect from this song but definitely not unlike any others before now, a caliber of its own kind, Quirky cute but ear appreciative to boot, sing along Appeal zeal feel.

    #10~HAPPY XMAS(WAR IS OVER) :
    You have John Lennon’s version…. It’s awesome, then along comes MLT, give them the opportunity to take the song and do something with it but still maintaining John’s essences… Damn, They have done so successfully with this Island/Latin fusion of musical flavours that sends out Postivity Groovy Christmas Spirit Vibes, Sunshine of Christmas Heart bursts out it’s creative Juices for all to celebrate with Festive Fab Fun… Let the Warmth of this Party Pleaser infiltrate and generate good times indeed!

    #11~ Silent NIGHT:
    A Christmas Album is not one and complete without this sentimental yet traditional favorite we all know and appreciate, no matter how many times you hear it, how many verses sung of it, whatever language it is sing in, it resonates a PEACE and LOVE effect towards All…

    In summary, I conclude that this is a highly reccomended Christmas Album that should be part of one’s music collection by whatever means of it, to me it re-establishes the Spirit and Meaning of Christmas in an inviting and Positively Fab Festive Fun Groovy Vibed Essence that needs to enjoyed and shared by and to all…
    Giving it an Infininity And Beyond Thumbs Up, Kudos to Team MLT for a brilliant gift for all this Christmas Season of 2019, Thankyou from my heart.

    The sweet sound of Christmas

    Richard McGlenn (verified owner)

    I’ve been hoping for some time now that the MLTs would put together a Christmas album with hopefully an original Christmas song that would become a standard. This year I got what I wanted and more. Love the music and the unique arrangements they did on some of the Christmas classics. When the MLTs put their special touch on a cover version you can pretty much expect a pleasant surprise and they delivered with this album. The reggae twist on War Is Over would put a smile on John Lennon’s face for sure and the Country style vision of “Walking in the Air” is a sure winner which I hope will get lots of radio play because it’s a winner. Especially with Mona’s lead vocals. Bought plenty of extra albums for stocking stuffers so the MonaLisa Twins Christmas will be enjoyed by others for years to come. Well done girls and thanks for the awesome effort you put into this album.

    What an amazing album!

    Tomás F. Calvo (verified owner)

    We had hints that the album would include some of the previously released Bowie, McCartney and traditional Christmas goodies, so satisfaction was guaranteed, but still I was floored by the MonaLisa Twins’ Christmas album.

    The new tune, “All I want Christmas To Be”, with its descending bass lines, it’s lovely piano, perfect harmonies and beautiful melodies, conjured up whimsical feelings to take me to a wonderful Christmas dream of waltzing across the living room floor with the family piano playing warmhearted carols. It is an instant classic.

    Then, Walking In The Air, came Johnny Cash, leaving me open mouthed, completely taken by surprise, I couldn’t believe my ears. They have taken this classic and made it fresh, with a spunky soul, and of course, those impeccable harmonies.

    And that’s not all, Santa Baby has cheek, all the cheek to you need to lift those stale sable lyrics and put a smile on your face. The old insensitive luxuries of the original lyrics are gone and replaced with a musician’s dream, just the tools of the trade. Will make you want to go to your music store and ship out an order to them.

    But wait there’s more! Happy Xmas has been restyled to get you out on the dance floor. Got salsa for that Lennon? Sure proof that whatever style the MonaLisa Twins embark on, they do it flawlessly. A true mark of greatness. Last but not least, is a soulful rendition of Silent Night. No rinse, just repeat.

    An album that will no doubt impress.

    A Christmas album worth owning... even if you already own a hundred others!

    Allen Martin (verified owner)

    There are a LOT of Christmas albums out there… and I should know – I own most of them. 🙂 Just kidding. I only own around a hundred or so – which is a small drop in the bucket of what is out there; but I only keep the ones I actually like. There are good Christmas albums. There are great Christmas albums. A very select few may be considered classic Christmas albums. (there are also the not-so-good, mediocre and downright horrid Christmas albums – and yes, I’m talking about YOU, Jingle Cats.) I do not consider myself to be any kind of expert on the subject, but I DO feel qualified to know the difference; and THIS one ranks among the best of the best.

    What this record has in common with all the great ones is a proper balance of the old and the new, traditional and contemporary, religious and secular. What elevates it to potential classic status is the addition of an original tune and the fact of the artist putting their unique (and, in my opinion, delightful) stamp on EVERY song. It doesn’t matter how many times you may have heard some of these songs before…. you have NEVER heard them like THIS before. That fact is what makes this a Christmas album worth owning – even if you already own a hundred others. 🙂

    I won’t bore anyone here with a track by track breakdown – I am sure that others have already done so, and better than I could. I would just like to say my personal favorites (on an album filled with stand out tracks) are “All I Want Christmas to Be” (if for no other reason than it being brand new and delightful) “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” (BEST version of the song, EVER) and “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” (simple breathtaking rendition. Is it better than the original? That’s not for me to say, and I couldn’t care less either way… It reminds me of something that Brian Wilson might have done – and that is reason enough to love it!)

    I said above that this album is a ‘potential’ classic. I say ‘potential’ because, realistically, it won’t be, unless it is heard by enough people – which it certainly deserved to be. As far as I am concerned personally, it IS a classic. In my mental list of personal favorites, I am placing it alongside “A Christmas Gift for you From Phil Spector” and “Elvis’ Christmas Album”.

    Holy Cannoli!

    George Pyramides

    I received the email for the MonaLisa Twins Christmas Album and downloaded the music like this morning. Been listening all day. AND then checked the regular mail and the CD came today! November 1st! I wish more businesses were a pleasure to deal with like the Wagners.

    I always thought Santa Claus was an old, fat, drunk guy (the rosy cheeks and laughing at everything gave it away) from North [New] Jersey. Turns out it’s actually two very talented Austrian girls, and their amazing parents, from Liverpool. Who knew?

    Their wonderful Christmas Album is everything I want Christmas to be. So what if I get coal again this year. My Christmas is already groovy!

    Most heartfelt thanks

    Myself and my wife Monica were so delighted to receive the Mona Lisa Christmas Album, that we decided it would be a great idea to spend the evening listening to it, and we were certainly not disappointed. The music, just like previous MLT albums, was so sublime, and the harmonies were so wonderful that they simply took our breath away, and we had the most relaxed and amazing evening ever, Old songs or new, it really didn’t matter, the album is exquisite.

    Hello Mona and Lisa,
    your Christmas Album is wonderful.
    The song I like most is “It’s the most Wonderful time of the year”.
    “Walking in the air” is a song I didn’t know before, but your version is great. Is it a Christmas Song? Anyway, I can put it on even when silent night is over.
    Nice to hear a few words in German (Leise rieselt…).
    Merry Christmas to you und ganz liebe Grüße aus Germany.

    A New Christmas Classic

    Kenneth W. Wenninger (verified owner)

    I have a few CDs that come out every Christmas. Now I have a new favorite.

    The Twins put their unique flavor into Christmas classics and create a brand new song.

    At the risk of sounding blasphemous, I cannot listen to Paul’s “Wonderful Christmastime.” I do like what Mona and Lisa did with this one though. I can certainly listen to their version—better than the original.

    “Walking in the Air” is a high point for me. The harmonies, the snare drum, the guitar, the rhythm…It is fantastic.

    I hope the girls got their Gibson…

    A DELIGHTFUL FESTIVE LISTENING EXPERIENCE

    Jeremy Keane (verified owner)

    The MonaLisa Twins have produced a Christmas album that is an endearing, eclectic and what should be an enduring festival favourite. Seemlessly moving across genres MonaLisa’s CHRISTMAS feels like the Neapolitan ice cream you enjoyed as a child; multi flavours yet a tasty whole.
    The album begins on a high with the original ‘All I Want Christmas to Be.’ This is a beautiful piece with a gorgeous melodic chorus and delightful lyrics. Using personal anecdotes has been cleverly used before on their original albums and here is another example. It makes their material feel authentic and the listener feels like they are being sung to individually. The harmonies shine and the layering of the melody combine to make one of their most delightful songs. It deserves to become a Christmas standard. ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ is transformed into an enticing sixties vibe groove. Then followed by Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy yet again the harmonies just meld and flow with such sweetness and delicacy. Elsewhere such as with their take of McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ the outcome is arguably better than the original. On this and others such as ‘Santa Baby’ the vocal delivery is simple, direct and yet still emotive. The worded interplay between Lisa and Mona on Santa Baby is fun and does not feel forced at all. With Lennon’s ‘And So This is Christmas’ the song is reworked into a New Orleans style ‘fun fest’. This is definitely one of the albums many high points with exuberant background party vocals and clever instrumentation. Whilst not wanting to diminish the original it is very refreshing to hear a song so much associated with school choir performances be performed so uniquely without diminishing the message of the song. The simple approach towards the evergreen classic ‘Silent Night’ is touching. Commencing with some delicate guitar the vocals follow to finish both the song and album with sincerity and beauty. CHRISTMAS is a great success by this wonderful sister duo – a festive release that is very highly recommended.

    Christmas Album

    Don Crispien (verified owner)

    This may be my favorite Christmas Album ever! The lyrics in “All I want Christmas to be” brought up childhood memories and helped set this “family around the fireplace” mood for the rest of the songs. I though, would have probably substituted something else for John Lennon’s “War is Over”. It’s still a good song, but it temporarily broke the mood until “Silent Night” brought me back.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family and here’s hoping that Santa bought your CD,got your Christmas list, and is extra generous this year.

    Best Christmas Album in Decades

    Keith Molholm (verified owner)

    I truly think your Christmas Album is the simply the best I have heard in decades! “All That I Want Christmas To Be” and the beautiful video brought me back to some special memories such as a beautiful fire in the fireplace and a Christmas tree with my favorite Christmas tree decoration-bubble lights. Yes, as the song suggests, those are the memories for keeps. Thank you.

    Your arrangement of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” was such a delightful upbeat rock improvement over any traditional arrangements I have heard. Thank you.

    Your video and arrangement of “Wonderful Christmastime” was such fun to watch the Twins having fun and being a bit “sassy” a good thing. The scene in a Christmas store brought wonderful memories for me as I have never met a Christmas store that I did not spend an hour or two in much to my delight. Thank you.

    The beginning of “Snow Falls Softly At Night” took me back to my wonderful German Grandmother who did not speak English until she was 7. Thank you.

    I thought your custom version and arrangement of “Santa Baby” was absolutely brilliant and delightfully entertaining. Thank you.

    This entire album was incredibly entertaining and I stand by my feeling is that it is the “Best Christmas Album in Decades.” Anytime an album can transport us to a wonderful place in time and bring back not one but several “Memories For Keeps” as well as a time when “It Felt Like the World Was So Right” from “All I Want Christmas to Be” is the essence of superb songwriting, brilliant performance and excellent arrangements.

    Many thanks again for this simply wonderful Christmas Album and the beautiful videos. In short, thanks for the memories.

    With Love, Blessings and hugs all around for such a treasure!

    Dear Mona and Lisa, since I discover you and your music on YouTube in 2018 with a great rendition of “Drive My Car” from the Beatles, I have either purchased or been given all your albums. I keep listening to them because I like the musical quality of your recordings, but also because you generate so much joy, cheer and happiness in times that really need them. My wife and I love Christmas and Christmas music, and we have literally tens of albums that we keep playing during the Christmas season. So, I decided to add your Christmas album to our collection and I certainly do not regret it. The choice of songs and your rendition of them make it a wonderful addition to our collection. Your music is refreshing. And in my personal opinion, your own composition, “All I Want Christmas To Be” is a gem, words and music. More than once, I find myself singing it in my head. Thank you so much for being who you are, and for giving us real upbeat music (or shall I say groovy?). Keep on playing!

    Christmas Album is great!

    Thomas Hugh (verified owner)

    I purchased this CD and it shipped to California, USA (November 2019). It was well worth the cost. This is a heartwarming collection (small) of Christmas songs. All are very well performed. I enjoyed the inclusion of ‘Walking In The Air’. The original song ‘All I Want Christmas To Be’ was very nostalgic for me. The video is warming to my heart. I hear this one as a classic.
    I love these girls since I discovered them on YouTube. I watch a video or two every evening. I was a teenager in the 1960’s and recall the original versions of the sixties songs they perform. I was in a rock band then. I would like to hang around the girls at a performance. If I was invited to play along, it would take me some time to rehearse because I gave it up so many years ago. I say give your support to the MonaLisa Twins to keep them performing and creating magic. Also, watch the YouTube videos to keep them close to you. It has been my pleasure to hear their music.

    Welcome exception

    Rich Holmes (verified owner)

    I am, by and large, not much for Christmas music. I mean, give me Noel Sing We Clear in their prime doing traditional English seasonal songs and I’m a happy man; throw in John Kirkpatrick’s “Chariots” and I’m even happier. But most of what you hear from about three days before Halloween to the weekend after New Year’s is either Victorian era carols that are shopworn by repetition, or old recordings of twentieth century holiday songs that are shopworn by repetition, or shlocky new songs or remakes of old songs, in arrangements usually either overwrought or stylistically questionable or both, that are, within a week after release, shopworn by repetition. Very rare is the occasion when a seasonal song comes up on a mall PA and I say, “Oh, cool, this is a great one!” Very rare.

    But the MonaLisa Twins (henceforth MLT) are one of my favorite musical discoveries of 2019, and when they announced their new album of holiday songs, I couldn’t refuse. I got the CD as soon as it was released — actually I think it arrived in the mail the day before the official November 1 release date. By then I’d already downloaded the audio files. But I didn’t listen right away. There are rules in this household, and one rule is, no Christmas songs until after Thanksgiving.

    But the embargo’s over, yay. And I can tell you this collection’s a good one.

    There’s just one original song, the lead-off “All I Want Christmas To Be”, and if I can’t pronounce it one of the finest songs I’ve heard lately, no matter: For modern Christmas songs, that would be a high bar indeed. This one’s heartfelt, sincere, not overproduced, not inflated with self-importance. A straightforward song with a catchy chorus. Far more famous songwriters have stumbled badly writing holiday songs. MLT have pulled off a modest but genuine success.

    The rest are some traditional, some “classic” twentieth century songs, almost all very familiar but for the most part made pleasantly interesting again with MLT’s new interpretations. No one’s contorting a melodic line with self-conscious ornamentation and variation for its own sake; no one’s soaking you in canned strings and canned echoing reverb; no one’s reaching for Powerful And Dramatic vocal delivery; no one’s taking any of this a bit too seriously, or not seriously enough.

    I think of “Peace On Earth / Little Drummer Boy” as being the sort of song that one could almost count on having the above afflictions imposed upon. And honestly, perhaps it comes close, but nothing egregious. Mona has a simple and understated snare drum part running through it all and it fits perfectly.

    “Wonderful Christmastime”, “Winter Wonderland”, and “It’s the Most Wonderful Time Of the Year” (possibly an excessive amount of wonder for one album) are pretty straightforward versions of familiar songs, done well without missteps.

    Beatles fans that MLT are, the presence of the first of those is no surprise, and the same is true of Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”. I’m tempted to call MLT’s rendition revelatory. Until now it’s been my contention that this song illustrates how even a songwriting genius can and will turn out the occasional stinker, and that in fact Lennon here created one of the worst Christmas songs of all time. I’m now considering it possible he only created one of the worst Christmas song arrangements of all time. MLT discard his bland, excruciatingly sincere approach in favor of a raucous calypso treatment. It’s a party of a song that actually sounds as if it’s happy that war is over (if you want it). The cloyingly banal rhymes are still there in the lyrics, but you’re having too good a time with the music to examine them too closely.

    There’s a bit of similarity in their version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. Originally recorded as a bittersweet, slow piece, they’ve sped it up and goosed it up, making what was meloncholy, well, merry. It works, I think, because the lyrics can be looked at from both sides equally well.

    The traditional songs are “Snow Falls Softly At Night” (or “Leise Rieselt Der Schnee”, as the German speaking world calls it, and Austrian-born MLT start it off with the German lyrics) and the closing “Silent Night”, both done simply and effectively.

    You’ll probably never hear any of these performances on a mall PA, and that’s fine with me; I wouldn’t want them becoming shopworn with repetition. I’ll hear them in coming years in my home and in my car, with each listening canceling out the trauma of yet another exposure to “Last Christmas”. I’ll still gripe about Christmas music, but I’ll gratefully grant MLT an exception.

    This is what I basically posted on I-Tunes. Excellent Christmas album. The vocals and arrangements make these tunes perfect for the season. The only exception, and I really love this song, is Walking on Air. Great song but not a Christmas one. Still I would highly recommend this CD. All I Want For Christmas is a great original tune and the covers are spot on. (please note attached is my first selfie)

    TheTwins deliver a gift to fans for the holidays!

    Sal Salerno (verified owner)

    I have been a fan since the beginning and I just purchased the Christmas bundle as a gift to myself. Let’s understand that these girls channel the sixties and the Merseybeat like no other act. Fab Four style harmonies, wonderful musicianship and a knack for uniqueness amidst all the homage. As a fan of the sixties and sharing their love for the music especially The Beatles, it was a no brainer that I would buy their newest Beatles inspired recordings and covers but it’s the Christmas album that is really special. It is filled with traditional and pop classics and contem contemporary originals. It is fresh, fun, heartfelt and most importantly totally original. Worth every penny and a superb holiday gift to their fans. I’d you’re a fan check it out.

    I enjoyed your album very much, will be buying more of your Cover albums. It would be a nice touch if you could record more songs in German. After all, I heard all of these songs in my language, English. But I remember when I heard 99 Luft Balloons in I think in German, and I really liked it. Just a though. Thanks, One of your older fans.

    I found you on YouTube playing Beatles music and thought you were great at your interpretation of the music, I then saw your video for “All I Want Christmas To Be” on Facebook and though itt is a great original Christmas song, so I followed the link to your website and bought the album. I love the Christmas album. I saw a review where someone said the album had to much “twang” for their taste, I think it has just the right amount of twang to keep the music from sounding like every other band out there. I then looked at your Orange album and think your original music is pretty darn good too, I intend to purchase the vinyl record after the holidays settle down. Please keep making great music and as you say to your fans, “Stay Groovy”!!

    Twice the Christmas Cheer

    Benjamin Guidolin (verified owner)

    I didn’t want to be in a pre- Christmas funk so I was extremely happy to see MLT come out with a Christmas album as I wanted something unique and to my liking of good music. They lead with an original composition which is thoughtful and personal but stays away from being maudlin.How about you ? What do you “want Christmas to be”? Of course there are two “Beatle” songs.
    I like both treatments because they are fresh and sound fresh especially “War is Over.”I honestly never liked Macca’s “Wonderful Christmastime” but I REALLY like MLT’s version.
    It was lovely to hear the Twins sing “Snow Falls softly” in their native language . I was hoping for at least one verse of Stille Nacht (Silent Night) in German as we Auslanders would sing these two songs in our German class. I find it is a beautiful language when sung.
    The soulful, jazzy guitar intro that precedes Silent Night is so sweet.
    MLT perform a unique and humorous version of “Santa Baby” citing their starry eyed wishes for musical instruments. (I’d like a Gretsch too BTW.)
    In any case, I’m driving half way to work and its time to replay the album one more time…maybe hit repeat on Silent Night a few times and try not to tear up. That’s just me for there are more smiles than tears for this festive tribute to Christmas. Like the kid said, “God bless us all everyone!”

      Mona Lisa Twins – Christmas

      I have had CD a few days but not played it up to now. I so wanted to leave playing the CD until … Christmas! I could not help myself though. Like a child searching hiding places or tearing a corner on a gift to peek inside, I had to play the CD.

      I’m going to do a track by track assessment and make notes below.

      Too long, did (will) not read. In short, MLT Christmas is a wonderful mix of charmingly covered Christmas songs and, the first track, a heart warming original. Grab yourself a hot Glühwein (alcohol free for me) and snuggle up in a blanket next to a roaring fire then put on the CD and enjoy this marvellous yuletide treat.

      It’s kind of difficult for me to review such well known and loved songs but I’ll give it a go.

      All I want Christmas to be

      Reminiscent of the wonder and delight of childhood Christmas, this is such a heart warming song one may be tempted to call it twee – but in the nicest possible way. The twins have done themselves proud here and produced what, for me at least, could become a classic Christmas staple.

      Have yourself a merry little Christmas

      This is a very rock ‘n roll version of the song sometime crooned! Yet the sentiment is still there. I simply adore the way the girls cover this song making it vibrant and, somehow, smooth at the same time.

      Peace on Earth / Little drummer boy

      Many will remember Bing and David singing the song. Unpopular as some may find this and as fantastic as Crosby and Bowie are, I find this rendition by the twins far superior. The harmonies are spot on and in some way the song just seems more sincere sang this way.

      Wonderful Christmastime

      Sir Paul, this is undoubtedly your song, hands down and chips in. So, when I write about how good this cover is please; take it well! The twins are a bit ‘cheeky’ on this track and the fun really comes through. The tune is excellently played and the girls sing it so sweetly. This is another track by the twins that I would choose over the original every time. Sorry Sir Paul.

      Snow falls softly at night

      A pedant may point out that the title of this song could, or should, be ‘Snow falls soft in the night’. Phew! Got that one out of the way! It does not matter. For me this song is best ‘auf Deutsch’* and I’m so glad the girls started it that way. This interpretation has such a wonderfully warm guitar which sings in itself. In shortness and simplicity this song excels as do the girls in this, almost country, version.

      Winter wonderland

      Wow! I thought I was going back to the fifties, never mind sixties with this one! (Yes I know it’s from the thirties). There is a kind of a chirpy, funny lilt in this version. The tune is, as it should be, jaunty, catchy and very well performed. The girls sing this song as if it were made for them.

      It’s the most wonderful time of the year

      Cheery, marvellously harmonic, fun, softly rockin’ – what else is to be told? This is, as the girls, simply charming.

      Walking in the air

      This is an upbeat version of a classic. The girls do really well at spicing up traditionally slow songs. With clear and precise singing, even at this speed, the voices of the girls mix exceptionally well here. Yeah! This cover is different but definitely not in a bad way.

      Santa baby

      This Eartha Kitt classic has been covered by many with mixed results. This version does not disappoint. The ‘and me!’ near the start is quite fun. The list asks for instruments in a modern twist. The girls have been ‘angels all year’ (with dark wings maybe – I jest). Another cheeky and fun version of a song that was, in this instance, tongue in cheek anyway.

      Happy Xmas (war is over)

      An almost carnival working makes this cover very interesting. This song always seemed somewhat sombre (though good that way) to me and it is nice to hear it covered in a more upbeat manner. Some may not like this party style cover but I think it every bit as good as the original.

      Silent night

      So! This is another song I really like sang ‘auf Deutsch’. Just the way I am! That wrote; I really like it sang in English too – possibly my favourite carol. How nice the guitar start of this song is. The performance here is quite moving. I have to write; very well done with this cover MLT.

      *Though my skills with the German language are not the best, my sister living in Germany assures me that I did well to use ‘auf Deutsch’ in the above! Corrections on a postcard to…

      In short then; Great album – buy it and be happy.

    Holy Cow! Does not even come close to describing your ‘Christmas’ Album.
    Your Original song All I Want Christmas To Be is the best original Christmas song since John and Paul’s individual singles. You have captured the true thoughts of everyone’s wishes. Its amazing to know if alot of it was written from your experiences and that you captured it so perfectly.
    Santa Baby is a wonderfully Cute expression of your dream gifts 🎁. Even Mona feels left out on the Gibson.
    So this is Christmas is a wonderful Caribbean flavor to it. Walking In The Air is perfect with a 60’s beat. And The classic Silent Night rounds out the Album perfectly.
    Everyone will Have A Merry Little Mona and Lisa Christmas all their own.
    Thank you Ladies and your magnificent team for this Dynamic Album. You are the best.

    . It’s a magnificent Christmas album, and every single track is remarkable!

    Jung Roe (verified owner)

    This Christmas album leaves me breathless! So many wonderful moments throughout the album.

    Right off the bat the first track is a charming and jazzy elegance of “All I Want Christmas To Be” MLT original song that conveys the warm magical Christmas mood, remembering all the fond moments of Christmas times of the past. There are beautiful piano runs, and the singing is warm and glowing, carrying the beautiful melody. They’ve done a remarkable job with this song of transporting you into their Christmas spirit state of mind. It feels like chestnuts roasting next to a fireplace on a cold snowy winter night on Christmas eve. It makes you feel all that is special about Christmas. It’s a modern Christmas masterpiece.

    Peace On Earth Little/Drummer Boy is three and a half minutes of sheer musical beauty and bliss by just Mona and Lisa’s spectacular vocals and harmonies. Literally it’s just their angelic voices on many tracks, Lisa’s highs, Mona’s lows, angelic Mona/Lisa choir background, and humming, all intermixing in a sublime symphony. Kudos to the remarkable studio sound production and track mixing (Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney would be proud). Lisa’s lead vocals shows the remarkable range of her voice, and just shine so beautifully and gracefully sending shivers of joy down the spine. The gentle drumming is the only instrument in the song that provide a graceful background beat. This song is a moment of artistic sheer beauty in the realm of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven.

    Walking In The Air is a song written for an animated 1978 children’s film “The Snowman”, a Christmas story about a little boy and a Snowman. It’s an incredibly beautiful song covered by many classical artists. Mona and Lisa transformed this into a truly remarkable rock version with a wonderful 60’s flavor, that is absolutely spectacular, beautiful and stunning here. The vocals and harmonies are nothing short of incredible. I’ve heard this song in various forms over the years, but this one just completely blows me away and captivates me like no other. I adore Mona and Lisa’s “Walking In The Air”. It’s like how the Beach Boys transformed Chuck Berry’s Sweet Little Sixteen into a magnificent Surfin USA.

    Silent Night is one of the most well known popular Christmas carols, maybe too well known to the point it lost it’s luster with me in the last few years. Maybe overplayed at every Christmas event. Just like on every track of this album, Mona and Lisa breathed new life into it for me. From the gentle classical guitar lead in, I knew this one was something different and special, and it is indeed. After a long beautiful instrumental guitar lead in, those beautiful MLT signature harmonies come in and lifts your spirits. Like voices from heaven. They stayed true to the spiritual essence of Silent Night giving this song the beauty and grace it deserves. I love Silent Night again, the Mona Lisa Twins Silent Night that is!

    I could go on and on, but thought I’d highlight some tracks on this album that immediately stood out to me, but every song on this album just shines brilliantly. This is honestly the best Christmas album I ever heard or owned, because MLT didn’t just rearrange some classic Christmas songs to sound Christmassy like so many Christmas albums out there do. This is an album that was really years in the making, as MLT released one new awesome Christmas song each year for the past many years. What stands out is the musical attention to detail, creativity, and quality of production that went into this album. Something only master song writers and musicians can do. Every song is rewritten in Mona Lisa Twins unique style, and they sound refreshed, new and revamped. The same kind of skill and perfection that went into their Beatles and 60’s covers went into this Christmas album. It’s a creative artistic achievement with a lot of variety and musical depth from traditional to contemporary, and their first original Christmas song is a true gem transporting you into the beauty of the Christmas spirit so effectively. It’s a magnificent Christmas album, and every single track is remarkable!

    A Christmas Gem

    Dale Harris (verified owner)

    If you’re of a certain age, you’ll know that most of the songs on “Christmas” have been recorded many, many times by many, many talented musicians over many, many years. Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, right up to Whitney Houston and Taylor Swift. But there are only a very few true gems of holiday music. The Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack, of course. Diana Krall’s “Christmas Songs”. And now the MonaLisa Twins’ “Christmas”.
    The familiar songs here have a sound that is best described as fresh. All are arranged and presented in a manner likely never heard before, many of them totally unlike the classic performances that are widely recognized. “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” is almost universally a slow, melodic ballad. It is so much improved with the upbeat tempo here; Christmas is a time to celebrate, and this track will fill a dance floor.
    “Winter Wonderland” has an almost country music vibe to it; again, unusual and illustrative of the artistic range with which the MonaLisa Twins’ followers are fully aware. The samba “Happy Xmas (War Is Over) is a further example of this wide vision. There is one binding aspect to all the tracks and it is those two voices singing together, although that is something featured on every song they perform. And it’s almost redundant to mention the production value and musicianship; both are so good all the time they are as inherent to their work as water is to a rainstorm.
    And then there is “All I Want Christmas To Be”, the original song that leads off the album. Being soaked to the socks, tongues stuck on ice, and snotty noses punctuated my childhood. That these young women can have so much in common with someone over twice their age is a miracle right out of the bag under the tree. The most striking element of this track, however, is not the nostalgia the lyrics present, but the wish that Christmas maintains the ability to allow us to feel that the world is alright, and perhaps incentivize us all to help that along. A beautiful notion in a beautiful song.
    I don’t have any thumbs up or stars or likes or anything, just do yourself a favor and get a copy of “Christmas”. This advice is my Christmas gift to you.

    A wonderful edition to my Christmas CD collection. Each song has that special MLT touch. It’s evident in each song that Christmas has always been a special time for you. This is so evident in “All I Want Christmas To Be”. This song expresses Christmas spirit in such a special way. While all of the songs are performed with the MLT excellence that we’ve come to expect, “ALL I WANT CHRISTMAS TO BE” is my favorite. It’s like the quintessential Christmas song for how so many of us feel about this holiday. “Merry Christmas” to the MLT family.

    My favorite Christmas album !

    Ari Raki (verified owner)

    I have to say first that I don´t particularly like Christmas albums. I don´t see very much sense to buy an album that is relevant to play a month or so in the year. I owned before this only two Christmas albums, both by Finnish singer Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) but MonaLisa Twins´Christmas album was a must. The thought to hear these lovely voices sing Christmas songs was just too tempting. And the album is perfect ten ! The one original song “All I Want Christmas To Be” is the best new Christmas song for years and the more familiar songs that follows are all performed very well. I also liked the new arrangements in the songs like “Walking In The Air” and “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”. The very often heard songs have got now new twist and they sound very fresh. I have listened album only once now because Christmas is over the month ahead but after few weeks it will probably stay permanently in my CD player. Happy Christmas Mona & Lisa !

    The Christmas album is a seasonal treasure for uncountable Christmas times to come. The picture attached shows my copy of the Christmas album that is among my treasured autographed collection. This Christmas will be my 70th Christmas season. I have not only been hearing Christmas music for many decades I read and play music for my enjoyment at the piano/keyboards. MLT Christmas album is wonderful with interesting arrangements of classic Christmas. The highlight is the original MLT song “All I Want Christmas To Be”. This song captures Christmas by sharing what Christmas time has been experienced. It’s about joy, happy times remembered. Maybe one day there will be an entire Christmas original songs album from MLT. 🙏. For now the Christmas album is a keepsake of the Christmas season. I love the expression of delightful humor of the album cover picture. In closing, when is Christmas? Isn’t it really an everyday day expression that is 365/24/7? It’s the fun, joyful humor in love with giving, sharing the emotional exchanges we all have. This is what Mona & Lisa have created and are doing through music. MLT have captured groovy in music by keeping their artistic focus.

      Our lovely package arrived in Australia this week and we haven’t stopped playing them…The Mona Lisa Twins – Christmas album is our new favourite. I’m so happy that we found you in time to bring you into our home for this festive season, we will be sharing your beautiful Angelic harmonies with our family and friends as the festivities begin in the coming weeks. I especially love the haunting sounds of ‘Walking In The Air’…so beautiful. ‘Happy Christmas’ was a real surprise…usually I don’t particularly like this song because it always leaves me feeling sad and emotional, but you have brought new life to the truth and meaning of this song…celebration of peace, and setting it to a reggae beat helped to get it there, so thank you for that gift. Your original ‘All I Want Christmas To Be’, is a sheer delight and made me smile all the way through as I was imagining two little girls experiencing their magical Christmas…very heart warming and real. They are all truly wonderful tunes to be enjoyed, but I think my absolute favourite from this well put together album, is ‘Santa Baby’, again, not one of my usual likes but I love your creativity in this one and love how the instruments are added to build the song, so clever and I can’t wait to share this one with my brother in law Lloyd Clarke, who is also a song writer and guitar pickin’ , playin’, lovin’ guy…he’s going to absolutely love your rendition of ‘Santa Baby’.
      God bless you both this Christmas and thank you for blessing all of us with your incredible gifts.

    Making a more magical Christmas

    Beautiful album and classic remakes of classic songs. I love their original new song “All I Want For Christmas”. Their German/English version of “The Snow Falls Softly at Night” might be my new favorite Christmas song. It may be known in Germany and Europe, but it was new to me and wonderful. I just listened to “Santa Baby” a couple days ago and love their humor in adapting the words to the guitars and wonderful world of music they share with us. There is a version of Santa Baby that I quite like and I was reluctantly thinking “How can they top that?”.

    I think I am done thinking that way. They hit every song they cover and every new song they write over the top. Kind if the Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth of rock and roll. Or since they are Austrian, maybe more like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu were to bodybuilding. World champions.

    I really admire the classy championship way Mona, Lisa and their family produce wonderful songs and albums. Their musical and vocal skills are magnificent or as many say “Magical”. Everything they do is first class and it’s clear to me that is who they are through and through. Employees, customers and a whole lot of strangers are getting some MLT Christmas Magic from us this year.

    Great job Mona, Lisa and the Wagner family!

    CHRISTMAS CD

    Joseph Manzi (verified owner)

    I received the Christmas CD about a month ago. It was pretty fast service from England to the States.
    I’ve only listen to it 3 times so far. There are 11 songs on this Great Christmas CD. A Great mixture of
    classic Christmas Songs and an original MLT song. I like that you did renditions of German and Austrian songs. I will be playing this a lot once the Holidays are here. You really did a nice job on this cd. Right now after only three listening I would have to say my three favorites are Winter Wonderland, It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year and Happy Xmas ( War is Over ). I highly recommend if you like Christmas music you need to get this CD. Great Job Ladies. Stay Groovy and Peace & Love.

About the Album

CHRISTMAS is an album of holiday and winter-themed songs. It includes the original MLT Christmas song "All I Want Christmas To Be" as well as interpretations of some of their favorite holiday songs ranging from John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" to some (translated) traditional German ballads they grew up with.

It has become somewhat of a tradition for the MonaLisa Twins to release a Christmas song for their fans every year. For the holidays season of 2019 they decided to take it a step further and release this full-length album, simply titled CHRISTMAS.
