The new Christmas record by Jessica Simpson is a real great piece of music because she's singing like in the past. You can hear her powerful clear voice. On her last album "Do you know" her voice sounded rough a bit but on "Happy Christmas" she is singing like an angel and if you hear it you will agree with me. Jess is showing her vocal skills in perfection. You can hear a powerful,high,low and always touching and soft voice.
My Only Wish
Very nice fast up-tempo song with a nice melody and clear vocals.
The music has a saxophone, sleigh bells and a piano part.
Here Comes Santa Claus/Santa Claus is Coming to Town)
This one is one of my faves... nice medley and it brings lots of fun into the songs.
The song has good guitar parts electro and acoustic and a nice bridge with a background choir.
O Come O Come Emmanuel
This song is a bit comparable with "what child is this" (from Rejoyce). The music is piano with a string orchestra... very emotional atmosphere and one of the highlights. Jess is showing what she's able to do with her voice. Its very powerful...
I'll Be Home For Christmas (duet with John Britt)
I'm surprised. I never expected that this duet would be so good.
John is making a good job here. The music is slow, with a soft cymbal beat and a string orchestra with typical Christmas sounds (decent).
Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
One of the most famous Christmas songs ever. Jess is singing very powerful and gives her own interpretation to this song.
6. Mary Did You Know
The music is like a typical ballad made for Jess. The sound is near to I wanna love you forever...
The vocals are very clear, powerful and touching too...
7. Merry Christmas Baby (duet with Willie Nelson)
This song is the only country styled Christmas song on this album with electric and acoustic guitar, piano and a Hammond organ. Its sounds like a big band performance - awesome.
The vocals of Jess are showing a wide range of tones... its very special but it sounds good and different to the other tracks.
Kiss Me For Christmas
A soft slow beat with a piano, it's a silent song.
The music is styled like a typical ballad for Jessica - and that's what she can perform so amazingly.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
This song has a string orchestra and piano with a soft cymbal beat with a very clear voice...
Carol of the Bells
Its nice how Jess is imitating the bells (ding dong ding dong). I never heard this song before. It's a very interesting melody and a good choir in the background.
The music is typical Christmas sound with sleigh bells, electric guitar,piano and strings orchestra.
Hidden Track 1 (Jingle Bell Rock)
Jessica's voice, a background choir, a band with sleigh bell-drums, piano and an acoustic guitar...
The piano solo part between the verses is very nice to hear.
Hidden Track 2 (Silent night)
Very silent, very touching...
Classic bells are ringing, a string orchestra is accompany to Jessica's voice. It sounds very harmonic and fits together perfectly...Jess is showing that shes still able to sing very emotional.
There is no bad song on the record. Jess is showing that she's still one of the most talented female vocal acts we have. Everyone who liked the 1st Christmas record will love this one.
I hope this record is her step back into music and we can look forward to a new studio album in the next year.
Thanks Jessica, you've done everything right on this record.
I don't had Christmas feelings but after this record I'm waiting for Santa :-)
Nice greetings from
