Perfect for the holidays!
ExpectationsExceededInMusic
We love the Glee show and this is a good CD to have on hand for the holidays.

This CD is not bad.... it just is not as good as the first CD.

1. "All I Want For Christmas Is You" Featuring Amber Riley (Mercedes)
What can I say? Amber nailed it once more! Big, sassy, and amazingly talented, she makes any song amazing! NO exception here. 5/5

2. "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" Featuring Darren Criss (Blaine) and Lea Michele (Rachel)
A glee Christmas original! What more can you ask for? This song is everything: upbeat, fun, and perfect for Rachel and Blaine! 5/5

3. "Santa Baby" Featuring Naya Rivera (Santana)
Naya Rivera + Any song = Amazing! Her voice is rich, sexy, and perfect for the song. Only issue: the tempo is a little off in my opinion. But an amazing song nevertheless! 4/5

4. "Christmas Eve With You" Featuring Jayma Mays (Emma) and Matthew Morrison (Will)
I've always been a fan of Jayma Mays and Matthew Morrison singing more songs, and glee certainly delivered! A beautiful duet! 5/5

5. "Little Drummer Boy" Featuring Kevin McHale (Artie)
Perfect song for Kevin, and a great christmas classic. 4/5

6. "River" Featuring Lea Michele (Rachel)
Lea delivers one of her best performances on this song, and its a perfect addition to an almost otherwise Rachel-free christmas album. 5/5

7. "Do You Hear What I Hear?" Featuring Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell (`Glee Project')
The Glee Project contestants Lindsay and Alex do amazingly well together on this song, and its a great christmas classic. 4/5

8. "Let It Snow" Featuring Darren Criss (Blaine) and Chris Colfer (Kurt)
Pitch perfect, Chris and Darren deliver another holiday favorite in a way only they can! 5/5

The challenge with standard Christmas songs is that they have been sung in both traditional fashion and revamped styles many times by many artists. Often, there is a specific version that seeps into your heart and is attached to memories that get you in the holiday spirit. And therein lies my problem with the Glee...Christmas Album, Vol. 2 CD. There are four songs that are worth mentioning:

1. "All I Want For Christmas" opens the CD with an excellent performance by Amber Riley. This version is wonderful for a younger generation who may not be as exposed to the song as I am from Mariah Carey. Amber is AMAZING! (Can't wait for a solo CD from her!)

2. "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" - As one of two original songs on the CD, it is sung beautifully by Lea Michele and Darren Criss. The song is both upbeat and fresh mainly because of its originality.

3. "Do You Hear What I Hear?" - This rendition of this classic is ethereal and angelic just as it should be. I am pretty impressed with newcomers Lindsay Pierce and Alex Newell.

4. "Let It Snow" - I enjoy hearing Chris Colfer and Darren Criss sing together. This rendition is jazzy and playful, and the arrangement is wonderful.

Glee...Christmas Vol. 2's other songs are either mediocre or were sung and arranged too well by artists in the past. Other recordings such as Joni Rivers' "River" and Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby" were recorded before I was born, but they capture a holiday essence that I don't detect in most of the CD. Still, Glee...Christmas Vol. 2 has its audience and is geared more toward pop music lovers from 1 to 22 and fans of the show. For them, I hope it brings a Christmas nostalgia for years to come. ~HAPPY HOLIDAYS!~

I was so excited to see that a new Glee Christmas album had come out that I didn't really take the time to listen to the song snippets that they usually offer. Big mistake. This album only has a couple of songs that I really enjoy. The first album is amazing start to finish, so this one was a real let down. Make sure you listen to each of the song portions before you decide to buy.

I just got the CD on Black Friday and there are some good songs on it! Lots of Christmas classics that everyone loves. Honestly, I like the first Glee Christmas album a bit more than this one, but I definitely don't regret my purchase because I'm a die-hard Gleek. ;) The songs make me excited for Christmas; this album is worth buying if you're as Gleeky as me!

EDIT: Okay, so I watched the "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" episode. All of the songs in the episode were familiar and from this album, except for "My Favorite Things," which I absolutely loved. Why is that song not on the album!? Last year, "Welcome Christmas" was left off the album -- a little bit disappointing. Additionally, according to my iTunes, the two songs I've been listening to the most are "All I Want For Christmas Is You", "Santa Baby", "Christmas Eve With You", "Christmas Wrapping", and "Let It Snow". The rest...I haven't really listened to that much. This wasn't the case for the first Glee Christmas album. So overall, I'd recommend that you go on YouTube and listen to all the tracks BEFORE buying this album...and just buy only your favorite tracks. I don't regret buying the entire album, however, because they're still good for listening at holiday parties, passing the time while baking, or while doing any other Christmasy activity.
