I read a review which had the opinion that the only jolly song was Jingle Bells and nearly did not purchase it. I have recently started to enjoy some of Sinatra's music and thought I would take a chance: Tracks 1, 15 and 16 are the best, cheerful and suit his singing style. #2, 3,5,13 are 'dated' Christmas renditions as they evoke nostalgia but at a very slow pace compared with today's music. #4: I'll be home for Christmas - again, dated but too melancholic for me at Christmas. Track 11 - had to turn it off - somber, melancholic. 5 tracks are 'traditional', formal Christmas hymns. If you have contemporary Christmas music tastes it is possibly not for you, however those searching for nostalgia would possibly enjoy it.
