Product Description

Amazon.com

Chilly, forced, and overdone, this mixed bag of modern classics, tarted-up traditional carols, and trio of tunes penned by Beyonce Knowles doesn't conjure a single warm and fuzzy image of chestnuts roasting on an open fire or Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Rather, it's just another forum to showcase the band's Gucci bag of vocal gymnastics and crass materialism. The Texas trio takes seasonal classics like Irving Berlin's "White Christmas," "Silent Night," and "Little Drummer Boy" and embellishes them with their own trills and off-kilter harmonies, obscuring the songs' simple beauty. "On the eighth day of Christmas, my baby gave to me a pair of Chloe shades and a diamond belly ring," brags Knowles in the title song, a takeoff on the "12 Days of Christmas," without ever explaining why they lopped off four days. The band is shamelessly self-indulgent throughout the dozen songs found here, taking untold liberties, like renaming "Carol of the Bells" "Opera Bells" and recasting "Silver Bells" as "Platinum Bells" to reflect their multiplatinum status. But the low point of the record is when Destiny's Child hawk their Hasbro-manufactured dolls in the intro of "Platinum Bells": "Ladies, remember long ago we asked Santa to give us Christmas dolls? This year the dolls are you and me under the tree." Humbug. --Jaan Uhelszki

Customer Reviews

This new christmas album from Dc was a very good twist to some of the traditional songs we know.
I.B.
The album sounds like it promoting Beyonce, she is not a good writer, she should be allowed to take so much charge in writing the albums so early.
La Mar Collins
Obviously, there are some out there who did like it, but being a Destiny's Child fan apparantly doesn't mean you'll like this album of theirs.

While Destiny's Child has great harmony and good producing skills, this album is somewhat lacking. The first three tracks are nice and enjoyable. "8 Days of Christmas" and "Winter Paradise" are nice Christmas songs for the new generation and "A DC Christmas Medley" fashionably mixes a number of good Christmas songs. After that, the rest of the songs are missing something. "Silent Night" seems to be extremely over produced with Beyonce' breathing over her singing just a little too much. The song is naturally beautiful and with Beyonce' singing, the song should have been a pretty good one. However, towards the end you are wishing that she would stop breathing so heavily and just sing the song. "Little Drummer Boy" claims to have Solange, but you barely hear her over Beyonce'. They sound so similar that you have to struggle to hear Solange's 15-year old vocals. The song is decent, but it leaves you wondering if Beyonce' steals the spotlight from everyone, even her little sister. Kelly and Michelle's solos stand out from the rest of the album... Maybe because you don't hear Beyonce' taking all of the good verses. "Do You Hear What I Hear" is definitely the best Classic song on the album. "O Holy Night" is mediocore with Michelle singing the entire song. She has a pretty voice, but it can be a bit irritating towards the end. "White Christmas" and "Platinum Bells" are both too short. They should be interludes instead of songs. But after hearing "Platinum Bells" a couple times, you are glad that it is so short. "Opera of Bells" is a great harmonizing song.Read more ›

Let me begin by saying that I love Destiny's Child. I think they all have extraordinary voices, with killer tracks. I was expecting a more lush Christmas album than what I was presented with. The girls are sounding their best in this album, but I missed the orchestras and horns which you hear of in other Christmas album. Anyway, the CD kicks off with "8 Days Of Christmas", which is a great R&B adaptation of a great Christmas classic, and follows into the "Happy Face"-esque "Winter Paradise". This song basically talks about how great it is during Christmas, which is a prevalant theme throughout the album. I did not really feel "A 'DC' Christmas Medley" very much. The song selection was odd, and a few different chord projections in the background music would have helped. Michelle sounded like she was struggling to reach the low notes in her solo. Beyoncé has the first solo in the album, singing "Silent Night", backed only by an acoustic guitar. The arrangement is nice, and Beyoncé sounds very good. "Little Drummer Boy" is next, with an "appearance" by Solange Knowles, Beyoncé's little sister (I don't know if one line counts as a featured appearance). The harmonies are killer in this track, and it overall is very good. Kelly jumps in with "Do you Hear What I Hear", and her rendition of the song helps to make it one of the best tracks in the album. Her sweet voice blends well with the upbeat accompaniment. "White Christmas" is another standout track, and Michelle sounds especially good in this song. The harmonies are very well arranged in this track.Read more ›

That Eight Days of Christmas track really says it all about this shallow,tacky, soul-less drivel. Also, I admire her, but Beyonce needs to stop working on blue jeans and become a better musician. You can always tell a song she's written because her melodies and choruses are limited to the same four repetetive notes. See if the 8 days doesn't sound just like Independent Woman. Seriously. Why is she afraid to use the whole scale?

While I can't say that I'm a true fan of Destiny's Child, I have enjoyed what I've heard of them, and honestly folks, I expected this to be a good album which would exhibit the best qualities of the group. The material's good and should have lent itself to the group's style. But it seems to me that something went wrong and I don't know what. Maybe they didn't really exercise that much of their own wishes for this CD and let others manage it instead. I can't believe that it could have been the girls' choice to use "Silver Bells" to sell their dolls. I mean isn't Christmas supposed to be about giving, not selling?
The title track is a not-bad commercial top-forty type song, and it's followed by "Winter Paradise" that indeed has a flavor of soul or even gospel.
The medley's okay, but the more spiritual type songs are somehow forced, and feign a devoutness that just isn't really there. A lot of heavy breathing doesn't express sincere feeling. "Silent Night", "O' Holy Night", and "White Christmas" each sounded to me as if they were trying to express something that just wasn't there and just wasn't real to them.
For me, the redeeming cut was "Spread A Little Love On Christmas Day."
All in all, I think that many listeners have been too rough on them. This isn't the worst Christmas CD ever. But personally, I can't call it good. Obviously, there are some out there who did like it, but being a Destiny's Child fan apparantly doesn't mean you'll like this album of theirs.
Really folks, I wanted very much to like and recommend this Christmas CD. I'm sorry, but I can't, I really can't...Bear in mind all this is my opinion, and maybe you'll like it a lot more than I did...Try to hear a friend's copy of it first before you decide if you want it.
