Bob Dylans Christmas Album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas In The Heart (Audio CD)
Dylan has treated all the songs, new and old, with the respect these great pieces deserve. He and his magnificent band play them straight, but of course the voice that is sand and glue makes them all really unique. Stand out tracks are Must Be Santa, with the hilarious accompanying video, and Little Drummer Boy which also has a superbly animated video. Hark The Herald Angels Sing and Oh Come All Ye Faithful have vocals that are really dynamic and powerful and choirs of angles for me cannot compete with the solitary, bear-like growl that is the voice of Mr Bob Dylan. He injects a new 21st Century passion to these well worn classics. Overall a great album by any standards and in a way a pity that it's limited to a seasonal genre. Thanks Bob!!! I'm not a Christmas person but you made it a bit more bearable.
