Few commercial Christmas albums really appeal to me - too many of them mangle the traditional classics I love, especially the hymns, with all sorts of fancy modern sounds that ring hollow to my ears, and, loving the traditional songs so much, few modern Christmas tunes manage to win me over. Ten years after its release, though, Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas CD remains a perennial Christmas favorite of mine. Mariah's vocal talent puts her head and shoulders above every female vocalist out there, and she injects true feeling and spirit into every song she sings. On this album, she combines the new with the old, making this a Christmas CD that almost everyone can love.
Like many, I was drawn to this CD after hearing the song All I Want For Christmas Is You; I believe it's the best secular Christmas song since Elvis' Blue Christmas. I had to buy the album for this one song alone, but I was also very anxious to hear what Mariah would do with traditional hymns such as Oh Holy Night - my pick for the greatest Christmas song ever written. Many a soprano shies away from truly hitting the high notes at the end of Oh Holy Night, and given Mariah's vocal range, I felt confident she would do the song justice. I was right, as this is one of the best versions of Oh Holy Night I've ever heard. Mariah's voice is equally angelic on Joy to the World, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, and a properly subdued Silent Night. Jesus Oh What A Wonderful Child is a song I was less familiar with, but it makes for a stunning conclusion to an album that does pay real heed to the reason for the season.
Besides All I Want For Christmas Is You, Mariah co-wrote two other songs on the album: Miss You Most (At Christmas Time) and Jesus Born on This Day.

This is THE best christmas studio album EVER! We all know Mariah Carey is one of the greats when it comes to vocal ability in the singing department but this is some album! What I like about it the most is that it mostly concentrates on the actual story of christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ (only 4/11 are about the commericial christmas we all know too well!).
Everybody knows the fun and joy that her trademark secular christmas track 'All I Want For Christmas' brings, but the emotion she delievers in worship songs like 'O Holy Night'(best version ever!), 'God Rest Ye Gentlemen' and 'Jesus Born On This Day' is nothing short of incredible! Her version of 'Joy To The World' will also have you clapping and swinging your arms in the air, and 'Jesus What A Wonderful Child' is a real gospel gem.
Believe me once you have had a few listens of this it'll be forever a must-have essential cd to bring out every year during the festive season (although temptation may prove too much seeing as my friend started listening to it after his summer holidays!). I will leave you with three words:
'Just', 'Buy' and emmm...oh yeah ' It'!

Ever since 1994, there is one Christmas album that I keep buying religiously every year for the seasonal gifts. That is Mariah Carey's "Merry Christmas". Cheerful, jolly, a little melancholic too, beautifully assembled inside-out, a perfect package. Although her second attempt with "Merry Christmas II you" failed to excite me as much, Mariah's poppy vibe is a guaranteed winner. There you have a wonderful collection of festive classics as well as some new cuts (that are 20 years old by now!), beautifully executed and presented in new old-fashioned style. Mariah's voice is a perfect instrument suitable for those trademark ballads she is best loved for, as well as for traditional numbers. Single "All I want for Christmas is you" is a true Christmas classic, only topped by Wham's "Last Christmas", which is arguably the most Christmas-associated festive song; but Mariah's version of "O Holy Night", is also spectacular, just like her fittingly subdued version of "Silent Night" and the melancholic, new-penned "Miss you most (At Christmas time)". Many artists have subsequently presented festive albums, however, Mariah's gorgeous collection of religious and secular songs remains unsurpassed. Right then, I'm off to order a few more copies! Merry Christmas, everyone, 'tis the season to be jolly!

PS: Loreena McKennitt's "A midwinter night's dream" and Tori Amos' "Midwinter graces" are also strongly recommended. Those are more subtle affairs, ideal for those who enjoy quiet and introspective listenings. George Michael's "December song" is also a festive favourite.

Festive albums seem like a time-stalling process, however not every artist that releases one can claim it sold 16 million copies. Merry Christmas was another success from the legendary Miss Mariah. Aside from the expected covers of classics, which she manages to do brilliantly, Carey creates some of her own Christmas masterpieces. The up-tempo plea of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" and beautiful portrayal of isolated emotions in "Miss You Most (At Christmas Time)" are enough to weigh up the various feelings of the holiday, but nothing compares to her own true Christmas signature song "All I Want For Christmas Is You", capturing the true energy of the festive spirit. Her vocals are not all shed for fun and games with her true range being explored on the hymn, "O Holy Night".
