5.0 out of 5 stars Buble's Christmas masterpiece for the holidays October 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Christmas is an absolutely beautifully recorded and sung album by the velvety rat pack voice of Michael Buble. The arrangements are stellar featuring big band and full orchestra backings by some of the best musicians in the business with a great deal of input from Michael himself and genius producer David Foster. Additional production by Bob Rock gives an especially rewarding re-work of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You. Michael slows the tempo way down and turns Mariah's festive version into a very romantic and longing song of desire and passion. What a great version of one of the best Christmas songs written in the last 20 years!

Also quite amazing is Michael's version of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). Here he wisely sticks to Darlene Love's original arrangement though the brass and drums are recorded so well and sound so bright it might almost make you forget her original version which is also fantastic. Buble modestly said that he might not have her pipes but he sure made up for it with his own punch and swagger. Another classic is given the Buble treatment and the listener cannot help but get drawn into the singers desire to get his baby home as soon as possible.

There are an amazing 15 songs on this version which includes all traditional songs except for one original written by Michael and his piano player Alan Chang, Cold December Night, another romantic and well sung ballad that would go quite well with an eggnog sitting by the fireplace. There are spicy versions of Holly Jolly Christmas and Jingle Bells as well as an awesome duet with Shania Twain on White Christmas that borrows a great deal from the Drifters version featured in the Home Alone movie.

Format:Audio CD
Reprise/ Warner presents "CHRISTMAS" (2011), featuring Michael Bublé, finally a singer under the age of 50 who actually listens to the lyrics he's singing and interprets them in a unique way --- Bublé has a rich, smooth, beautiful voice that gives these songs a new dimension --- And his diction...wow, there's a concept --- Listen to "ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU" and "I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS" and you'll see what I mean, under stated arrangements with that special Bublé touch ~ the last track is "MIS DESEO/FELIZ NAVIDAD" (duet with Thalia), is a fun listen, as you can hear both of the singers enjoying the moment --- Just in time for the holidays a true gem for any Christmas collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional, Laid-back Feel October 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Michael Buble's "Christmas" is a must-addition to your Christmas music collection. This collection of songs offers the traditional, laid-back feel that every Christmas album should embody and is reminiscent of albums from great crooners of the past. While many big stars attempt to rework and mangle Christmas song, Michael Buble chooses to showcase his talent by adding his stellar vocals to classic arrangements that need to be done justice, although the album also adds Buble's signature touch to songs such as "All I Want for Christmas is You." After getting this CD, I think Christmas is going to start early this year as I'll be enjoying Michael Buble's songs every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me weak in my knees...again!!! November 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok soooo Im a sucker for crooners and romantic music sooooo this is right up my ally but in Christmas style!!!! Michael is fun, romantic, serious all at the same time in this recording...I played it at work on Saturday and I was either weak in my knees or dancing around the room and laughing!!! I love this cd and I know you will 2! ( side note: ok so his version of "Santa Baby" is different and hard to get used to because of the original version always being sung by an woman but he makes it his own soo you will just need to make up your mind if u like or just not like it..)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Christmas album EVER October 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to this album for the past few days since I bought it.

I'm a big fan of Christmas music... This is THE BEST Christmas album EVER (Michael, you have replaced Elvis & Bing which were my favorite Christmas albums for the past couple of decades, so I'm serious here!!!).

Every single song is really well done. Each one just as good as the next. There's no skipping tunes here. It is a pleasure to listen to from start to finish, and start over again and again all day long.

Beautiful, enchanting, perfect.

This album makes me happy and brings back wonderful Christmas memories.

Thank you very much Michael!
