3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars if it hadn't missed out some obvious classics, 30 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Christmas Hits (Audio CD)
At first glance, this is probably the best christmas album available, as there aren't really many songs you wish were or were not on it. But it has versions of songs which seemed better done by other people. Here are some of them...
DISC 1: 1. Bruce Springsteen - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town (maybe not everyone will agree with me but I much prefer the Jackson 5 rendition)
9. Michael Bolton - White Christmas (the Bing Crosby one was better)
DISC 2: 10. Steps - Merry Christmas Everybody (STEPS?! its enough to make a grown man cry! What happened to the classic Slade original?)
DISC 3: 4. Brenda Lee - Rocking Around The Christmas Tree (not that bad but the Mel & Kim was better)
Another thing, why bother putting two versions of the same song on one album (All I Want For Christmas, Little Drummer Boy). I for one would prefer losing the second versions for better christmas songs which were criminally left out from this album...
And call me sad but if they've got songs by Westlife and N*Sync, why cant we have a spice girls song like 2 Become 1 or Goodbye?
Overall though, this is great christmas album, and if you don't mind not having those songs you wish were there this is certainly one to consider, with great new additions like The Darkness and Proper Crimbo
