Missing some classics and original versions,
This review is from: Christmas Hits (Audio CD)Although this CD has some good Christmas songs on it, it does suffer some problems. First and foremost, where are the original classics? Sure there are inferior re-recordings of classic Christmas songs, but I fail to see why the original well-known versions didn't make the cut. Second, there are some unforgivable gaps - Slade? Wizzard? Where are they? Huge hits and played for years after their original release - surely they should make it on to this CD?
I think this CD fails because it tries to be everything at once. New versions to appeal to a younger audience (who will be put off by the cheesy covers by the like of Michael Ball and Michael Bolton), and cheesy covers for the older audience (who will be put off by the newer recordings). It never works when someone tries to put this sort of compilation together, so unfortunately it's a thumbs down from me.
