Product Description

Amazon.com

She's been hailed for her multi-octave vocal range--a tool that sometimes detracts from her pop recordings, but actually works quite beautifully in the context of this charming holiday collection. Fans will surely approve of Carey's renditions of slinky secular songs like "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)" and a nicely subdued "All I Want for Christmas Is You." But where she really surprises is in her unadorned delivery of a passel of traditional carols, highlighted by "Silent Night" (which she sings quietly, avoiding the temptation to wail those high notes) and "Jesus, Oh What a Wonderful Child." A must for diehards, and a pleasant surprise for the unconverted. --David Sprague

This has got to be one of the best Christmas albums ever made. Every track on this CD is spectacular and Mariah performs these tracks without changing them too much from the original classics so anyone who listens can really appreciate them. The DVD side of this is also very enjoyable, along with the new version of Santa Claus is Comin' to Town. I didn't think it was possible for even Mariah to do a better rendition than the original album version. The new version is very soulful and sounds old school, like something The Jackson 5 would've performed.

I own some classic Christmas albums like Nat King Cole for example, and now, Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas. It has the catchy Christmas standards like "Joy to the World" and "Santa Clause Is Coming to Town" and there are great original tracks like "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and "Miss You Most (On Christmas Time)"----this album covers all the basic ingredients that takes to become a standard classic. Her flawless and incredibly touching vocal performance on "Oh Holly Night" sends chills down your spine and the Mariah-penned "Jesus Born On This Day" is a beautiful hymn that uses a boys' choir, an incredible production. Although I do feel that her attempt at singing gospel is not very convincing, I still find the collection of songs irresistible. When you're by the fire and contemplating your Christmas tree with a loved one, put MC's Merry Christmas on your CD player and cuddle, it doesn't get better than that.

This cd is one of Mariah's best cd, her voice is on top condition, and one of the best xmas collection ever. The songs are:
1. Silent Night (9.5/10) - Mariah does a calm vesion, and it's very good.
2. All I Want For Christmas Is You (9.5/10)The classic mariah holyday song, everyone likes this one.
3. O Holy Night (10/10)- Amazing Vocals, Best Version of this song ever.
4. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) (8.5/10) - Great Arrangement
5. Miss You Most (At Christmas Time) (9/10) - Tradicional MAriah Romantic Ballad but is Xmas Related. The Great thing here is the simple but amazing arrangement and her awesome voice, again.
6. Joy To The World (7.5/10) - unfortunately Mariah put a beat that doesn't fill here, but in the end ít becomes good.
7. Jesus Born On This Day (8.5/10) - touching song, children singing, calm, great.
8. Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town (9.5/10) - another classic song that mariah made the best version ever.
9. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing / Gloria (In Excelsis Deo)(9/10)- great vocals of Mariah and all the background singers.
10. Jesus What A Wonderful Child (9.5/10)- great gospel side of Mariah.
Overall, amazing. As someone here wrote, Mariah sings gospel very well, and should have more gospel influences on her regular records.

The legendary Mariah Carey's updated version of Merry Christmas is nothing short of astonishing! On the second disc she updates her now classic performances from the album's original 1994 release. Her vocals are amazing and sound as good as ever as she takes these songs into the stratosphere. Mariah's singing is inspired and she demonstrates that even after 15 years in the music business she is still reaching new highs in artistry and vocal performance. Mariah has taken the best, and best-selling Christmas album ever made and made it BETTER!!! With her enormous talent fully on display, Mariah delivers a CD that is her perfect way of saying "Merry Christmas" to us all.

One high note from Miss Carey, and your skin then becomes covered with goosebumps. What a rare talent Mariah has, there is truly no one on this planet who possesses the vocal prowess of Mariah Carey.On this album her voice pierces you like a lighthouse guiding ships to shore. Her talent and voice is so amazing it could light a dark room, and this album displays it. Fans, and non-fans a like will love this Christmas Cd. Whether its Silent Night that warms your soul, or Jesus, Oh What a Wonderful Child that will have feeling like you just stepped out a church. All of the songs are spectacular, but wow, O Holy Night, leaves me speechless...at when she sings, "...ohh night devineee" she jumps two octaves and sings a C7 which is remarkable. People can say what they want about Miss Carey, but you cant deny that superb instrument!

You will not be disappointed by this Album, its amazing. The Dual Disc comes with God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, and and new mix of Santa Clause is Coming to Town.
