5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshingly superb Christmas album 23 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Amid the rubbish blaring out of every shop doorway since mid October it's easy to doubt the existence of imaginative and genuinely moving music for the festive season but Shawn Colvin has made a wonderful Christmas album that should replace any Best Ever collection in anyone's CD rack. Holiday Songs & Lullabies is a perfect blend of country rhythms and folk touches. It's an intimate album too, Colvin sounds relaxed and the impeccable production leaves you feeling that she and her intrumentalists could be performing in the corner of your living room. Every track is a genuine treasure but the highlights have to be her treatment of Christina Rossetti's lovely poem Love Came Down At Christmas, the wonderully devotional In The Bleak Midwinter and On The Little Road To Bethlehem which canters along in true Country style. This album proves that there is more to life in the run-up to Christmas than Slade. It's a delight. Get two copies and give one to someone special.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very different Christmas album 21 Jan 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
As the title might imply, this is a very mellow album that might send you to sleep if you are in any way tired. But if you were to fall asleep while this CD is playing, you'd miss some great music. The book from which Shawn selected these carols and lullabies obviously contains many songs that are rarely heard these days, making this particularly interesting for those looking for something different, though there one song here that is famous all around the world - Silent night, which works as a lullaby as well as a carol.
The opening track, In the bleak midwinter, is a wonderful old English carol and it's great to hear this sung by an American - a rare occurrence. Rocking is another old English carol, one that is particularly suited to this album, being both a holiday song and a lullaby. All through the night is a carol I've heard before but recordings of it seem to be even rarer than Rocking and In the bleak midwinter.
Elsewhere, there are beautiful songs such as Windy nights (words by Robert Louis Stevenson), All the pretty li'l horses, Little road to Bethlehem and Love came down at Christmas. The final track is Close your eyes, so it seems that Shawn really does want you to fall asleep after that.
This is definitely not a typical Christmas album but very soothing - and very satisfying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Festive stuff could have been better 12 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love her to bits, some wonderful albums and woks with other singers down the years, but this output (only bight it in a very cheap sale) does not do her justice, or the Christmas songs either sometimes. Never mind, her lovely voice is still there and is a good addition to the Colvin collection. Don' think this will be played much, prefer her classic albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lullabies? Holiday Songs? Oh but wait.......... 12 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As an ardent fan of Shawn Colvin, I must admit I had my doubts when I first heard her new album would be a Christmas release featuring lullabies. In my opinion many holiday albums tend to be pretensious and lack originality. And lullabies? Not exactly what I was hoping for from my favorite singer/songwriter. However after I listened to the first track I was won over.
The beauty of this album is in its simplicity. None of songs sound contrived or overdone, but rather make the most of Shawn's subtle voice and distinctive style. Whether accompanied by a guitar or a brass choir, the arrangments never over power. I was surprised how much I enjoyed listening to this album. Also, like with the Cover Girl album, I discovered some old songs I never knew that have become favorite.
It is a very soothing and relaxing album that does not compromise Shawn's body of work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Songs sung with love 13 Dec 2002
By Neal C. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is indeed a beautiful album. It opens with the traditional "In the Bleak Midwinter" and then goes directly into the classic "Christmas Time Is Here" from "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Another traditional but seldom heard number is "Rocking", and then there's the haunting lullaby, "All Through The Night". "Silent Night" is the one absolute Christmas standard here. And "Close Your Eyes", Brahms Lullaby, is heard from time to time on Christmas CDs, though it isn't truly a Christmas song. However, with Shawn's voice, all of these are good.
Regretfully, I can't put this album into the same category that I have put CDs by other female vocalists such as Judy Collins, Natalie Cole, Anne Murray, or Julie Andrews. But this is a good folksy type classic record to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Baby Gift 26 Oct 1999
By Kimberly Harne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I spotted this CD last year when looking for Christmas music and instantly fell in love with it. I quickly bought up a few more copies to give as "just-for-nothing" gifts for my friend who was expecting at the time, and my sister, who will have her baby next month. They both found the CD incredibly soothing and lovely. I just wish the book that provided the inspiration wasn't so difficult to find now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Music, As Always 14 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My dad is an avid Shawn Colvin fan, and so I've grown up listening to her in the car, on road trips, while making dinner, and sitting around the living room. I used to be irritated by it (apparently, I would have much rather had been listening to my Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas cassette tape). But now, I'm the biggest fan of Shawn's songwriting and her music. This CD lulls me to sleep at night after a stressful day, even mid-July, and is a staple around my house at Christmastime. I've never really liked Christmas albums, but this one isn't typical. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise. There's a nice mixture of Christmas and wintery sitting-by-the-fire-in-my-slippers music, as well as some sweet, rare lullabies that showcase Shawn's amazing voice. I love this CD. So will you. Also, check out her other CDs...Steady On, Cover Girl, and A Few Small Repairs are all wonderful CDs, as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect holiday cd 1 Jun 2001
By A. H. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have a whole collection of Christmas/Holiday CDs and albums, ranging from the Winter Solstice series on Windham Hill to Hipster Holiday to Ella Wishes You a Swingin' Christmas. I'm always looking for a worthy addition to add to my holiday cheer. This is a great find. Not only does Shawn sing with great feeling , the arrangements are impeccable. While there are a couple of standard "Christmas Carols" on the CD, I really enjoy the less well-known numbers. The musical accompaniment by such luminaries as Mark Egan (bass) and Shawn Pelton (drums) is sympathetic and heartfelt. Light the fire, relax, enjoy the holiday season
