I am glad to see this exceptional Christmas album is now available in the UK. This unique selection of songs ranges from a classic 'Oh, Holy Night' through the beautifully produced harmonies of 'Baby, What You Goin' To Be?' all the way to the funky ' Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas', covering every mood and emotion of Christmas. Donny Osmond again proves himself an exceptional vocal talent, showcased here by the fine quality of production. If you think you've heard enough Christmas albums, think again, this is a true original.

As Donny is my all time favourite singer I'm biased but I do believe this is one of his best! There is something for all tastes on here from the upbeat and funky "Who Took the Merry out of Christmas" to the spiritual and worshipful "Come to the Manger". My personal favourites are Soldier's King and O Holy Night, which Donny really gives his own touch. I played this more than any of my other Christmas CD's this year - it's great for getting you into the Christmas Spirit.

Yes, the Slade hit was great in its time, and then David Essex, John Lennon and everyone else all followed with Christmas songs that now bombard us in every shopping centre from November right through to Dec 24th.

In the search for something different to play at Christmas, I came back to Donny Osmond; and I'm glad that I did. When you're all partied out to "Merry Christmas Everybody" and can't face another "War is Over" rendition, pop this on and enjoy some really rather "playable" songs with a gentle festive touch. Don't worry about the quality of the vocals as it all washes over you very nicely. Don't look too deeply for Christian meaning either - the Osmond family's religious committment is well known by everyone, and these songs are from the heart (although they are not all religious).

For some reason, this album sounds especially good through ear phones when travelling.

And then when you're home and getting nicely relaxed, move on to some extremely mellow Christmas jazz from Dave Koz to round off the evening. A Smooth Jazz Christmas

I can't quite make up my mind about this album. It's not up to the standard of his more recent work - the vocals are rarely as secure as they are on Somewhere in Time, and he often seems less enthusiastic than usual - surprising, considering his strong Christian background. And on the strength of his recent DVD, it was not what I was expecting.
I am not a big fan of "jazzing up" traditional Christmas songs, which is perhaps why I have to object to the opening track - the meaning in "Angels We Have Heard On High", and the traditionally beautiful music, are sacrificed to his interpretation of the song, which has not added anything in particular to it.
That is by no means to say that it is not any good - this would be unfair. Donny quickly catches up with his other songs - I heard Donny's and Michael Crawford's versions of "Mary Did You Know" on the same day, despite never having heard the song before, and Donny's version is extrememly simplistic, with purity of voice, not at all showy, and with the emphasis on meaning above all. Not to slate Crawford's version (really a very different style), but Donny really sounds like he means it. This is why he wins, and it is easily the best track on the album.
When you can tell that he really means it, the songs are generally excellent and more confidently sung. "After December Slips Away" is understated yet divine, as are "Baby, What You Going To Be?", "O Holy Night" (a song I can never fault), "A Soldier's King", and "Come To The Manger". It is no coincedence that these are the slower songs on the album.
