They seriously know their way around a four-part harmony.

Trawling through Human Nature's Wikipedia page (as I have, admittedly, not kept quite up to date with their career movements) I was shocked to learn that they haven't actually just been releasing Christmas albums annually for the past decade. The Christmas Album Deluxe Edition is actually a re-release that bundles four new tracks onto an already solid collection of Yuletide covers.

Musical snobbery aside, Human Nature do know their way around a four-part harmony and it's hard to stay grinch-y by the time 'Silent Night' kicks in. The re-issue also adds a duet with another Australian supermarket favourite, Delta Goodrem, that sounds exactly like you'd expect it to.

Destined to be the soundtrack to your last minute runs to Myer to find that unoffensive gift for the relative you don't quite know well enough, just think it could've been much worse. It could've been Nikki Webster.
