Editorial Reviews

Product Description

11 songs

The pop Christmas album is a lost art everywhere but in the country-western arena. You don't see today's rock acts reeling off sets of religious standards the way you used to--which is probably for the best. But even within the whole country milieu, since album release schedules aren't as fast-paced and casual as they once were, a good seasonal CD is something to latch onto. What we have here is a Christmas album of solid construction, packed with traditional songs and old-Nashville chestnuts. No surprises and no smash hits, but that's not what it's about. --Gavin McNett

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Christmas Record November 26, 2005
By Rodney
Format:Audio CD
Garth Brooks is (needless to say) one of the biggest stars ever in music. His record sales are (again needless to say) up there with Elvis, The Beatles and Elton John.

This album reached the top 3 back in Christmas 1992 and was still in the charts in the summer of 1993!! It's no surprise. This has to be one of the greatest Christmas CD's ever recorded.

The album opens with "Go Tell It On The Mountain", a story about the first ever Christmas, Brooks gives it his best shot and it works really well.

Oddly enough this album was recorded in July of 1993 in order to get it ready in time for Christmas. In an interview Brooks said he and his band put festive decorations up in the studio to make it feel like it was actually Christmas. This probably helped the sound of the album, such as the next two songs "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" (an old Christmas classic) and "The Old Man's Back In Town" (an original Garth Brooks written Christmas tune) that is about another of the worlds most famous men - Santa Claus.

"The Gift" is a story of when Jesus was young, and about how people bring him gifts and the main focus is on a poor orphan girl, who ends up bringing a gift fit for the king of kings. It may sound corny, but it works really well and it is Christmas after all, so it's allowed.

The next track is "Unto You This Night". This is probably my favorite cut on the album if only for Garth's singing. He performs at his best and puts his heart and soul into this song. Backed by a gospel choir, this is very, very seasonal.

Next up, is one of the most popular songs of the season. "White Christmas". It is also one of the most covered songs of all-time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Garth bringing new meaning to many old favorites. November 11, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I found Beyond the Season to be not only a great Christmas album, but another great country CD by one of the greatest artists of our time. My favorite song is "The Gift," bringing the true meaning of Christmas to us through the example of charity from a poor, lost child. It brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Only Garth Brooks can affect people so deeply through music. If you don't have it, get!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Christmas Album From Garth Brooks November 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this cd several years ago for my wife, and it is one of our favorite Christmas cds. From classic Christmas songs such as "Go Tell it on the Mountain", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and "What Child is This" to more upbeat songs, such as "The Old Man's Back in Town" and "Santa Looked a lot Like Daddy", this cd has a little something for everyone.

An upbeat version of "White Christmas" is included, as well as Garth's version of "Silent Night", which includes a narrative of Garth explaining his Christmas of 1987 and his efforts to get home to Oklahoma despite a severe snowstorm.

My favorite song on the disc is "The Friendly Beasts", which includes backing vocals from Garth's band.

I highly recommend this fine Christmas album. I've been a big fan of Garth's for years, and he brings this collection of songs to life with his vocal talents and fine insturmentals. Put this festive cd in your cd player this Christmas and enjoy some contemporary favorites as well as some fun songs, too. You and your loved ones will surely enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT COLLECTION OF COUNTRY CHRISTMAS November 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've heard much said about the commercialization of Christmas. People go back and forth on the issue and, as far as I can tell, nothing, as far as music is concerned, has been effectively settled.

Enter Garth Brooks and his Christmas offering on the album, BEYOND THE SEASON. My purpose here is not to weigh in on whether Brooks should have or should not have added Christmas music to his stellar discography. Rather, looking at the album flat on, we see one of the best Christmas albums available for celebrating the season country style.

Brooks is in perfect voice as he presents traditional favorites like "Go Tell It on the Mountain", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "White Christmas" and "Silent Night." Add to that new offerings like "The Friendly Beasts" and "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy" and you have a Christmas tradition for this season and many more to come. Great collection of country Yuletide music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite christmas album November 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this album when i was a child and i "borrowed" it from my sister. I wore the tape out because i listened to it so much. My favorite song is the 'donkey' song (#7 The Friendly Beasts)in which all the different animals in the christmas story sing and tell what they did to contribute to Jesus's birth and to help his family out. I love the whole album and would definitly recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wrangler Christmas!!! June 19, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Everyone has favorite Christmas songs that, no matter who you hear singing them, always make you stop in your tracks and listen. This album has a few classics that can do that with no problem. It's worth the money for four songs from the album; Garth's version of "Go Tell It On The Mountain", "The Gift", "Unto This Night", and "What Child Is This?". All done with that purity of voice and feeling from the heart that comes from a belief in the music. And this Garth does like a master. Anytime of the year is a good time to hear this album. After all, that Christmas feeling should be felt all year round, right? Now, if he would only make a recording of "O Holy Night".......
