By John A. Kuczma on November 27, 2000
Format: Audio CD
This album is a wonderful mix of holiday standards and lesser known Christmas music. Neil's varied interpretations range from near stock arrangements of O Little Town of Bethlehem and The First Noel to a whimsical version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer that allows his rather mischeivous musical sense of humor to shine through.
There is a powerful, dual-language (English and Latin) presentation of O Come All Ye Faithful and a dramatic rendition of the Hallelujiah Chorus, including a full orchestra and vocal chorale.
The highlight of the album is a heartrendingly beautiful arrangement of the hard-to-find John Rutter classic Candlelight Carol. This single track is worth more than the cost of the entire album.
Whatever you do, DON'T buy this to stick in someone's Christmas Stocking! The moment it arrives, open the package, put the disc in your CD deck, and let Neil Diamond's musical magic brighten your Holiday Season!

This is probably one of my favorite holiday albums. Any fan of Neil Diamond's should buy this disc. My favorite tracks are Mary's Boy Child, I'll be Home For Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Candlelight Carol which is worth the price of this cd alone.

Neil's 1st Xmas album is beautiful, but he sounds uncomfortable (jewish boy sings XMAS!) But this album he knows we will love his music, and he is so relaxed and really enjoying the music he is singing..some are so much fun like Rudolph! I love the whole album/so do all my clients that hear it at my work! THANKS NEIL/ANOTHER WINNER!

Neil Diamond's second Christmas album is a rare treat. It's debatable as to whether it's better than volume 1. Some may say it is; I personally say #1 is the superior. But most are agreed that they're both enjoyable and memorable Christmas albums. My favorites are "Joy to the World" (it begins with sharp piano notes and is eventually joined by a young gospel choir); "Mary's Boy Child" (a little-known and little-heard Christmas hymn and Neil does a wonderful job with it); "Away in a Manger" (nothing unique here, it's just that this classic song, for whatever reason, is missing on most Christmas albums); and the "Hallelujah Chorus" (an admirable effort that pays off very well).

Most of the others are sung in the good old fashioned traditional style--the way they were meant to be sung, if I may be so bold. The only song I don't really care for that much is "Deck the Halls/We Wish You a Merry Christmas". It seems to have a little of that musical style somewhat similar to his rendition of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" on volume 1. Except this one does not have as much of the "barbershop quartet" style to it. Whatever it is, it's an approach that Neil Diamond does not have the right voice for. But even that one is tolerable.

Overall, this is an excellent Christmas album which will not disappoint the average Christmas music enthusiast.

Diamond's second Christmas collection is an improvement on his first. By sticking with tunes that don't have signature renditions, Diamond has an easier time making the songs his own. Having fun with a variety of traditionals like, "Deck The Halls" and "The First Noel," and by putting a new spin on "Rudolph" and "Sleigh Ride;" Diamond does a decent job. Not exactly a vital part of my Christmas collection, but not a bad contribution.

I have been a Neil Diamond fan for 55 years, I have his music in my home and in my car. I previously owned this Christmas Album. It's the Neil Diamond voice that draws me - and the songs on this album are just perfect. I'm glad it's back in my Christmas album rack.

Mr. Diamond gives such deep meaningful feelings to these carols. The listener can hear that he does have a heartfelt love,and respect for these beloved songs.
When I told my daughter that this second Christmas album was even better than his first she could hardly believe it, as Mr.Diamond's first one was so wonderful. This Christmas album is a "must have" for your Christmas music collection.
