SoundEdit

Stylistically, this EP reflects a more experimental side to Foreman's songwriting. Whereas the Fall EP displayed a more straightforward approach musically, experimentation on Winter is much more evident. "White as Snow" toys with a slightly eastern influenced sound, while "In Love" carries a very oriental, and near-mantric feel—both new concepts in Foreman's music.[10] The feel of the album is indeed much more 'wintry', reflecting the dead of wintertime.[original research?]

Commercial performanceEdit

The Fall & Winter CD combo debuted on the Billboard Top Heatseeker's chart at No. 24.[11]
