Purple People (Christmas In Space) is somber and reflective, whereas there is really something striking about the movement of the ambient sounds in the background to Have Yourself.., most notably in the last ten or so seconds. The steady mechanical hum and slow bubbling give me mental images of being underwater, having stray beams of light cross you and the stray bubble pass by you. This may come off as a little morose, but it sounds like being drowned. Stasis, again. Womb-like, maybe? I can't stop raving about this, particularly because I don't think there's another that could take a song like that and turn it into what she turned it into.
Trapsing in afterwards, Bachelorette feels like an afterthought, but keeps with the darker sound as to not seem too out of place. Not a bad song, but placement wasn't well thought out. It sounds like an unwanted happy ending.
All and all, top-notch offering. Shame about the newer material..
p.s. um, why'd you give "spark" 1 star if you liked it so much, green bay guy?
