No Mariah Carey?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Now That's What I Call Xmas!  (Audio CD)
Well, I give this three stars as it's an above average Christmas album with a large selection of tracks, my only slight problem is while Amazon does list the tracks, it doesn't list the artists, so for example "All I Want For Christmas" is not the Mariah Carey version, it's a much less popular Samantha Mumba version, which isn't very good in my opinion, so basically just a quick warning to people, make sure you check exactly who's on the album if that matters to you, don't just assume it will be the most popular version of a song because it's on a "NOW" collection.
Anyway, all in all, still a good Christmasy album that should keep most people happy.

So the album doesn't list artist and doesn't opt for the Maria Carey version of All I Want for Christmas? That's an incredibly lame and maybe even deceptive move on "Now's" part. No way am I investing in this with an inferior version of that classic song >:(

The problem is, the NOW albums are made up of artists from certain record companies (mainly EMI). Mariah Carey is on a different label, and so appears on Christmas Hits (or at least it did a few years ago)

Whatever the reasons, not having the Maria Carey version of 'All I Want for Christmas' is seriously lame, and makes not investing in this weak excuse of an album a no brainer imo. It's like a best of Michael Jackson album being released without Billie Jean...
