Their fourth CD and yet another classic. No matter which members of the group have enterd or left or whatever, the voices these girls have are direct from god.
Standouts to this album are the following three:- This Christmas, A DC Xmas melody and the final clasing track which has to get them some awards Opera Of The Bells. For future listening their all time best is definatley the first album, follwed by Writing On The Wall and Survivor. Enjoy and have a great xmas, DC will certainly make any old scrooge smile on the 25th.

Now, there have been people complaining loads about this album. "It's nowhere near as good as The Writing's On The Wall"! Well, no it isn't, but then this is a Christmas album, and every multi-platinum artist has done one - Mariah, Christina Aguilera, Toni Braxton - so Destiny's Child have given it a go.
Some of the songs are, in all fairness, quite bad, worthy of the skip button on the CD player! But then, it's all about the Christmas spirit, and these devoutly Christian girls sing about something they believe in.
'8 Days Of Christmas' is a great contemporary Christmas track, tearing away from the bore-fests that are 'let's all be happy and sing with sugar sweet voices about love' songs. And each girl gets their own track to sing on individually. At the end of the album, Solange (Beyonce's sister) has a track, 'The Proud Family', the theme from the Disney show which she sings. Yes, it is very clever marketing by Mr Mathew Knowles, but so what?
So to every fan of Destiny's Child out there, this is no masterpiece and it was never intended to be. It's just the girls havin' fun and doing their thing with the Christmas songs everyone knows.

this album is a great x-mas album from the greatest "destiny's child". in this one you'll find alot of x-mas melodies but with a special r'n'b touch by dc, and it sounds so good. those of you who heard 8 days of x-mas will know what i'm talking about. and another high-light! each member has a solo track here, and beyonce's lil' sister solange will sing here too!
buy it today and have a joyfull x-mas

........A copy of one of destiny's child's best cds!
Before i got this album i personally had no liking for christmas carols, they were to slow for my taste and didnt have any beat to them, then............Tada as if by magic this cd appeared and it jazzed christmas carols up for me. Destiny's child's original approach to christmas carols finally gave them the beat they needed, now im singing them all year round! A definate 10/10 for this album. Well done beyonce, michelle and kelly you opened my eyes to the true meaning of christmas.......the great music!
If your a fan of destiny's child you will love this album, how ever if your not......you will still love this album. I recomend it to anyone

Format: Audio CD
I like many different types of music including pop, rock, country, jazz, folk, classical and R+B. When it comes to R+B, I am mainly interested in the old stuff, particularly of the fifties, sixties and seventies. This album dates from the late nineties and is, of course, recorded in a much more recent style of R+B. With its distinctive funky rhythms much more to the fore than on most Christmas albums, it is certainly different for any of the music that I normally listen to.

The song titles are certainly familiar but have you heard them interpreted anything like this before? 8 days of Christmas (the title track) is a re-working of 12 days of Christmas. I'm guessing that they cut it from 12 to 8 because a full-length version would have been too long given the way that they do it. Opera of the bells is actually their reworking of Carol of the bells. I can't even guess the reason for the title change here, since it certainly doesn't sound very operatic to my ears. My favorite here is probably Silent night, precisely because I've heard so many versions of this well-worn chestnut. I appreciate hearing this very different, but still recognizable, version.

As a change from what I normally listen to, this is great. Nevertheless, it won't cause me to get excited about contemporary R+B on a large scale. Still, I may dabble in it occasionally as I did with this. If you are one of those people who buy music based on what I like, I strongly recommend that you hear samples before committing yourself.
