    As M. Ward's unflustered, vintage-sounding guitars gift memories of Chet Atkins and Les Paul, there's a welcome, brandies-by-the fireside serenity afoot. [Jan 2012, p.92]

    It isn't highbrow or ground-breaking, but it is fun and uplifting.
  3. Consists entirely of tasteful campfire-folk covers of seasonal classics.

    Ultimately, A Very She & Him Christmas is an enjoyable if forgettable project that its creators probably had a very fun time making.

    A Very She & Him stands guilty not of being oppressively adorkable, but of being not nearly adorkable enough.

    A Very She & Him Christmas could have done with a little more of the wide-eyed, kooky-face, make-your-bestie-a-yummy-pancake Deschanel: the results might or might not have been unbearable, but they certainly wouldn't have been dull.
