Lea is following the steps of her icon Barbra and Neil Diamond; I love when my favorite Jewish vocalists go and create a Christmas album.

This was such a cute experience and it feels so Lea, unlike Louder (which I actually liked, but I know it isn't really appreciated). I think I would have enjoyed this record more with a few more original songs, but I'm fine with her choices on which songs to cover.

I feel like I just had a long chat with my new friend Michael. This record is so personal and powerful. He made me cry out of joy and out of sadness sometimes. I don't know how to explain the kind of sensation this album gave me.

I can see why this album is so praised, I feel its beauty and I can clearly percieve her artistry, but I don't find myself singing to the songs and coming back to it. However, I'm glad everyone loves it so much, because I think it's well deserved, but maybe it's not exactly for me.

Highlights: Andromeda, Movies, A Lot's Gonna Change

Well, this was interesting. Some Il Pulcino Pio vibes lol. Would have enjoyed it more with regular vocals, but I guess the vocoder is the main part of their charm.

Highlights: stupid horse, xXXi_wud_nvrstop_ÜXXx, gecgecgec

Thanks for the compliment! It seems most of the userbase here is mostly into hip-hop. I’m looking to contribute more to the pop music community here on AOTY.

Nah, it's just that Eurovision pumps a lot of albums out on Spotify, and they're the easiest to find.
