This might have been a seriously bad move by the best selling duo in recorded history but it isn't. Carols rub shoulders with more well known Christmas songs and some new tunes in a balanced set list. It reminds me that these two had gospel and r&b roots before they started selling singles and albums by the mega load. Beautifully produced, it sounds fine on first play but, more importantly grows on you as you return to it. Recommended.

This CD is not very well known; consequently, I feel that I must echo the sentiments of the first reviewer. The First Noel and Midnight Clear are two outstanding songs on this extremely impressive CD. Absolutely brilliant. I just wish that Hall and Oates had made a DVD of these Christmas songs too. Daryl, John and the band should be really proud of this collection. Anyone who loves Christmas, plus all Hall and Oates fans, will be captivated by this gem.

Bought this on the strength of other 5 star reviews- and I haven't been disappointed. This is a gem of a Christmas album. I have lots and lots of Christmas music ranging from the traditional carols from Kings to the twee well known old crooners doing their Christmassy thing! Really hoped this would be a good selection as I love Hall and Oates. What a fabulous relief- I love it! It's a classy mix of songs, some I hadn't known at all, but this is now my 'go to' album of choice. Some lovely instrumentals, really easy listening and even my teenage son likes this(!). Well done Hall and Oates & well done, me! What a find! Definitely buy it if you're a Hall & Oates fan.

Christmas albums can tend to follow well established trends, schmaltzy, party, traditional and so on, and it seems obligatory for most well known artists to throw one in at sometime or other in their career. Lots of times they can be a bit lame, after all there's only so much you can do with the Christmas theme. When H&O released 'Home' in 2006 it had a limited availability for some reason. This may have been because of the marketing arrangement, due to the undertaking from the band that 50% of proceeds would go to a charity that provided toys for Christmas for kids from deprived backgrounds. The album is now more generally available.

On release Hall and Oates described the collection as 'spiritual', and the track listing has the usual mix of a few carols and many of the numbers you might expect, with a few less well-known seasonal numbers thrown in and just two original numbers from the pair. With the choice of opening number 'The First Noel' you might wonder just how this album is going to go, but it is a mark of Hall and Oates' talent and creativity to see them take this rather staid and formal Christmas standard and transform it into a breathtaking arrangement of tasteful strings, chord structuring and measured soulful singing from Hall, that doesn't obliterate the original but somehow achieves the impossible of making it work - and how. If the word masterpiece still has any meaning in music - then this is it.

There is a great variety in this quality album, from the hardcore gospel `Mary Had A Baby' (incidentally Hall started his singing career in church gospel!) to the supremely laid back `The Christmas Song' from John Oates. You can almost see Oates toasting his toes in front of the fire as he drains the last drops from a bottle of cream liqueur.
