Not worth such the harsh rating- Good buy,
This review is from: Now That's What I Call Xmas Album (MP3 Download)
So i decided to buy this album to get some good xmas tunes to get myself into the christmas mood and so that i will have something to listen to when xmas does come. After reading a few reviews and listening to a few tracks i decided to take the plunge and buy this album. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was since people had gave it such low reviews BUT I don't think that this album deserves 1 and 2 stars. Yes it is missing whamm's version of last christmas and does replace it with just the instrummental by the artist state of mind. One reviewer said that the album contained songs that were just instrummental but that is not true since the only instrummental is state of mind's version of last christmas. No other song is just music. Only that track is and yes it doesn't contain mariah's verison of all i want for christmas but I really don't notice the diffrence when i am listening to it. I mean lets focus on the postives here. The album contains all the classics by the original artists. I mean you just have to look at the track list to know that it contains a vast amount of christmas songs.
I am sure BMG probably couldn't get the permision to get whamm and let's face it you can just buy it. I don't think one song missing is worth marking it 1 star.
The reason i gave it 4 stars is because of the fact it didn't have whamm in it but I don't think you could get a better range of christmas songs all in one album so i say if you do buy one album let it be this one since the rest i've looked at are considebly not as good.
It's a good buy and I didn't regret it and i am scrooge when it comes to buying.
