Jeremy Camp has been bringing a kind of post-grunge approach to praise & worship songs for a decade now, and he has contributed Christmas songs to a couple seasonal compilations before, but Christmas: God with Us is his first full-length holiday album. Camp presents his own interesting versions of traditional Christmas songs (the opener, a racing "Jingle Bell Rock," is Camp's first ever secular track) plus one new original, and he brings the same bag of sound signatures to the table that made his non-seasonal albums such influential templates for Christian rock in the 21st century.
