Cee Lo Green follows up 2010's The Lady Killer with 2012 holiday offering Cee Lo's Magic Moment. Given all his idiosyncrasies and eccentricities as an artist, Cee Lo Green seems to be the perfect artist to release a holiday effort. Unsurprisingly, Cee Lo's Magic Moment is nothing short of a soulful treat.

"What Christmas Means To Me" opens the effort in soulful fashion, preserving the Motown arrangement (the song was originally written by Anna Gaye, George Gordy and Allen Story). Laden with horns - as much of Cee Lo's Magic Moment ends up being, Cee Lo does this cut up right. Cee Lo's vocals are clear, nuanced and nothing short of exceptional. Frank Loesser penned classic "Baby It's Cold Outside" proceeds with the help of Christina Aguilera. Jazzy and tongue-in-cheek, Christina and Cee-Lo exhibit the utmost vocal chemistry. Perhaps most impressive is that Christina Aguilera sounds more restrained and controlled than listeners have heard from her in some time.

"This Christmas" finds Cee Lo and producers preserving the sanctity of the Donny Hathaway Christmas classic. Soulful and commanding, Cee Lo is on 'autopilot' with his pitch perfect vocals. While his smooth vocals translate on the solid "The Christmas Song," one wishes Cee Lo to liberate himself even more, much like he did on his original song "Old Fashioned" where soulful grit and nuances 'ran free.' Regardless, "The Christmas Song" is pleasant, made all the better by acoustic strings.

"White Christmas" opts against the slower interpretation in favor of a brighter, more jubilant one.

If you like CeeLo's voice, you will love this! The songs he chose are perfect for his unique sound. The Muppet one is a little silly and smile provoking! Gotta love them! Mr. Grinch is perfect and Baby It's Cold Outside with Christina Aguilera is probably my favorite. Good purchase.

"Cee-Lo's Magic Moment" should bring lots of cheer this Christmas and thereafter. Opening is the bouncy retro soul "What Christmas Means To Me", followed by the Jazzy shuffle "Baby It's Cold Outside" which features his fellow Voice judge Christina Aguilera.

There are the standards; "The Christmas Song", a swinging "White Christmas", the Blues-ey "Please Come Home For Christmas" (with gritty vocals by Green),a rocking "Run Rudolph Run", Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas", "Merry Christmas, Baby" (with Rod Stewart and Trombone Shorty), and "Silent Night" (which starts off spare, building to a thrilling crescendo), to mention a few.

He covers Joni Mitchell's melancholic "River". The bouncy "All I Need Is Love" is an original Cee-lo composition, a duet with The Muppets which also interpolates their "Mahna Mahna" and shows off his fun side, as does "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" featuring a cappella group Straight No Chaser providing theatrical harmonies. My favourite is "Mary Did You Know" which is just piano, sweeping strings, and his vocals soaring majestically.

This should make for magic moments this Christmas.

I rarely buy music anymore. But, I bought this album based off of one song "Mary Did You Know." I have heard many versions over the years and I just think Celo's version is by far the most beautiful I have ever heard. Granted, I have done my own version and thought it was good. But, Celo's is just awesome on so many levels. I like the the other songs now equally that I have heard them all. It's a feel good CD. I have never bought a Celo album before although I did like him when he was part of Knarles Barkley. On top of not usually buying any type of music, I rarely buy Christmas music anymore. This is Christmas music and I think it is a must have for anyone that wants to feel good during the season. This album should be up with all the classics as far as I am concerned. I have the classics and the only album that was played all season was this one. He does an awesome job with the song the Grinche. I was surprised and catch myself grinning every time I listen to it. If you like Christmas music you will love it, but if you like the song Mary did you Know for that alone you would love this album. He does the best version I have ever heard.

I don't know how I celebrated the holidays before this album came about but now the game has changed. Christmas is full on funkadelic with this album right here. Makes the perfect gift, I can't wait to surprise my whole family with copies of this album, they will love it. I must have listened to Run Rudolph approximately 5 times a day since I got this album. I can't wait until the rest of the world knows about this album. I have 3 copies. One for my home, one for my car, and one for my cd player that I take to the gym. Whenever I drive around town I play this as loud as I can with the windows rolled down, I want the whole world to hear. So good, buy this album. Unnghgn.

Cee Lo exhibited his soulful style most recently with "Forget You". This album features tons of soul, funk and tremendous vocals. I was never impressed by Cee Lo's voice, but the opening track "Silent Night" gives you chills! The arrangements on this album are excellent. A true joy to listen and enjoy the holiday season!
