4.0 out of 5 stars
A must have Christmas Album, 15 Dec 2003
I recently bought Neil Diamond's Christmas Alum, having searched for it for some time now. And may I say, it was well worth it. I love all but 1 of the tracks. Normally, the first time you hear a CD it never really impresses you, and you are left wandering why ever did I buy this, and then it grows on you. But not with this one, it engages you immediately. The entire song selection is excellent, with Neil Diamonds unique voice and flare shining through. It really puts you in a christmas spirit. You can tell that Neil Diamond genuinely loves christmas, as perhaps most of us do. However, if you are one for fast pase christmas music, this is perhaps not the album for you, although it does have it up tempo songs (by no means I'm I saying that this album is slow). I'll close by saying that I'm happy with my purchase, and would suggest that you also get volume II of this album - I would rate it 5 stars. Don't know how I had one without the other.
