    Even to those who are completely over the prospect of contemporary pop artists churning out Christmas albums, what could seem more logical than a collection of Yuletide tunes by Christian pop performers? As much of a given as the concept of WOW CHRISTMAS may seem, the first couple of cuts on this two-disc affair may throw listeners for something of a loop. Avalon's version of the standard "Winter Wonderland" offers not the modern pop-rock sound the group is known for, but a swing-jazz version whose jumping horn-driven arrangement may have some folks wondering if the wrong CD was packed into the case, at least until the vocals kick in.
    Next up, Michael W. Smith takes on "Emmanuel," but instead of his usual pop vocalizing, the bulk of the tune is taken up by traditional choral singing and orchestral arrangement. Some of the tracks here upset the apple cart a bit less--Kirk Franklin's "The Night That Christ Was Born," for example, offers the expected mix of pop, gospel, and R&B--but for the most part, WOW CHRISTMAS offers a consistently fresh take on Christmas music.
