Wow, this is the first official time I’ve listened to anything from Koda. A pop, but Christmas like introduction begin the A-side, stay with me. This song is more of a love, power ballad than an actual Christmas song though. Nonetheless, it’s a nice song by Koda. I never knew she had deep vocals; I was always under the impression that she had though cutsey, annoying vocals that H!P people have. I could get used to her.

Winter Bell begins with a bell (wow, that was so lame xD). This song is more upbeat than the previous ballad, and more Christmas-y. Koda’s voice is more sugary in this song though, which slightly disappoints me. I was hoping she wasn’t THAT typical, but ah well. She is very popular, so there must be one thing I hate about her (xD). This song pales in comparison to the previous song though, because it’s just too happy (but lacks the warmth of Christmas classics).

Overall Rating:
3.5/5
