5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Songs Like You've NEVER Heard Them Before December 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When you consider the fact that the man who virtually defined pop music culture, as we know it today, worked up a contemporary Christmas album, what you get is an extraordinary blend of traditional sounds with pop flare, mind blowing arrangements, and precise, almost perfect, musical integrity. I offer you : David Foster The Christmas Album.
The Breakdown :
>> Track 1 - Carol Of The Bells (Instrumental) <<
An absolutely amazing rendition. Short, sweet, and oh so powerful. Considering that this piece (with the exception of the horns) is done entirely on keyboards, the Magical Mr. Foster puts his almighty thumbprint on this album and sets the pace for what's to come.
>> Track 2 - Blue Christmas (Vocals: Wynonna) <<
Bluesy rendition with a rich "piano bar" atmosphere. The orchestra makes all the difference.
>> Track 3 - The First Noel (Vocals: BeBe & CeCe Winans) <<
A Two parter. Nice violin work with a soft, angelic, vocal beginning (you can definitely pick up on the "Fosterization" of the music). Magically becomes a light, solid, jazz riff that is Foster all the way.
>> Track 4 - It's the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year (Vocals: Johnny Mathis) <<
Upbeat fanfare. Energizing. Very busy orchestration perfectly suited for this happy, happy song. Mathis is the only one that could have done this.....perfect choice!
>> Track 5 - Grown Up Christmas List (Vocals: Natalie Cole) <<
A Foster original. Much better than the Amy Grant version. Foster's bass work in this song makes it.
>> Track 6 - O Holy Night (Vocals: Michael Crawford) <<
Can the "Phantom Of The Opera" sing "Oh Holy Night"? Answer: "Oh YES!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for Everyone November 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite Christmas cd's becasue not only is the production and talent top notch, but it's so varried. You get instrumentals, country, gospel, uptempo, ballads, and religious songs all on this one cd! Amazingly, the varried styles don't come off sounding jumbled as one might think, and I suspect that's due to the talent of David Foster who expertly produces each cut. His rendition of 'Carol of the Bells' is to me, the definitive recording of the song. Other's like Natalie Cole's 'Grown-Up Christmas List', Celine Dion's 'The Christmas Song', Vanessa William's 'Go Tell It On The Mountain/Mary Had A Baby' and Michael Crawford's 'Oh Holy Night' are so strong that they wound up on those artists solo Christmas albums. The final track brings together all the featured artsis to preform 'White Christmas'. It's an astounding thing to hear each of these incredible voices take a line or two then sing together. What a beautiful example of the spirit of Christmas.
The vairety of artists and styles makes this a perfect gift for families with multiple musical tastes or new friends you've just met, as well as just anyone who likes classic sounding Christmas carols. It can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Christmas Album by David Foster (Interscope 92295) November 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
During 12/93, there aired a Christmas TV special called "David Foster's Christmas Album" which I videotaped and kept in my video archives. One piece, Michael Crawford's `O Holy Night' was absolutely incredible. Around Christmas time, I pull out the videotape and listen (and I do mean listen) to Crawford sing this one song over and over, ad infinitum. I never get sick of it. Each time seems better than the last. Watching Crawford sing this song is an experience in itself - his ribcage inflated like bagpipes in order to prepare for that last `noel' shows his talent. This exact song/rendition is also on "A Christmas Album" by Michael Crawford (Atlantic 83222-2) which Amazon by the way misnamed as "A Christmas Story," which uses childrens' choirs. Which album you choose really depends on whether you want only Michael Crawford + choirs, or want many singers like Celine Dion and Tom Jones. Both albums get an A+.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Christmas Album of all time. December 21, 1999
By Shelly
Format:Audio Cassette
I also watched the TV special and was moved by it. I only wish I was clever enough to tape it. But I have the CD and every year this is the only thing that puts me in the Holiday spirit! I decorate my tree to it every year. Truly a brilliant masterpiece with a blend of the best talented artists. One cannot listen to it without feeling emotional. I couldn't imagine Christmas without it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foster assembles diverse talent for this Christmas CD November 15, 1999
Format:Audio CD
David Foster brings energetic and heart felt performances from the varied talent he brings together on this CD. Michael Crawford's rendition of "Oh Holy Night" brings chills to me every time I listen--and I listen in June! Our collection of Christmas music nearly equals our general collection and this is by far our favorite holiday CD. Every year I give this CD as a gift to my new friends around the country, knowing little of their taste in music. The gift-giver can't lose with this offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watched The Special, Then Bought the CD September 17, 2005
By Julie
Format:Audio CD
I first saw David Foster's Christmas special when it aired back in the early 90's, simply because I'm a Michael Crawford fan and wanted to see him sing. By the time Michael finished "O Holy Night," I was literally standing in my chair with my fingernails bitten to the quick. This track alone is worth the price of the CD.

The entire CD is as pleasant and warm as a cup of Christmas cider. You get country (Tammy Wynette), R&B (BeBe and CeCe Winans), and thrilling tenor (Michael), all with the wonderful musical arrangement that is David Foster. A must-have for any holiday music fan.
