This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
Though it contains only three compositions penned by the singer, Jewel's yuletide album JOY: A HOLIDAY COLLECTION still manages to sound like a wholly original set of songs. This is due in large part to the singer's ability to modulate the texture of her voice, a technique that she will occasionally call upon several times within the space of a single song.
One example is Jewel's country-flavored rendering of "Winter Wonderland," which benefits from pedal steel guitar and a shuffling, rootsy beat. Jewel blends a light scat/yodeling melange, sultry and plummy diva-like crooning, and an airy and wispy vocal timbre not far from that of Dolly Parton. The more straightforward "Joy to the Word" benefits from warm strings and a piquant, well-placed lute. As one might expect, the take on "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is a jocular affair, as Jewel mixes her sprightly vocal part amongst a bevy of choir voices. Jewel originals include the Latin-sung "Gloria" and a special Christmas version of the uplifting "Hands," a track that originally appeared on her SPIRIT album. As the song suggests, in Jewel's world, "only kindness matters."
