Disappointing. Way too corny
on 11 December 2013
Since I absolutely adore the sound of Michael's voice, and have loads of his music, I was so disappointed with this CD. Poor arrangement and bad choice of back up singers/choir/instrumentals.
Shania Twain spoils her duet with him.
"Jingle bells" is hideous with The Puppini Sisters who are so corny and are awful to listen to.
Thank goodness for the input from Graham on his guitar in "Holly jolly Christmas".
Hey Michael, what happened to your voice in "Santa baby"??? You're losing it buddy!!!
"All I want for Christmas is you" is sung only by Michael and is very listenable. Very nice!!
"Blue Christmas" is way too jazzed up and frankly - weird!!
Ok, so Thalia isn't too bad with "Feliz Navidad" but it's the background choir which then spoils it towards the end
All that other back up jingly jangly stuff + singers and bad arrangement is just a waste of an otherwise good CD. I will play this music when cooking dinner and have had a sherry or two!! I will make myself enjoy this CD and try and get over the nauseating parts!!
