"Silver & Gold" is a treasury of Christmas blessings in variety. Vanessa once again shows her range and talent in her singing career. "Silver & Gold" is a great Xmas album, just as good as her last one "Star Bright".
The title single "Silver and Gold" is elegant and beautiful tone that Vanessa's good at. "Joy to the World", a duet with Brian McKnight is so fresh and new, they both give terrific voice performance."Rise up, Sheperd and Follow" is the powerful Gospel taste to show Vanessa's soulful voice. We can also remember the R&B diva via "December Lullaby", a great great song!There's also some Jazz songs in this album, Vanessa's Favorite music style.
Welcome back, Vanessa!
This compilation of Christmas cheer contains some great new renditions of the old Christmas classics. Highlights include a very smooth and mellow version of the title cut, "Joy to the World" with Brian McNight, "The Holly and the Ivy" and a more upbeat and jazzy version of The Carpenter's "Merry Christmas Darling". On "Winter Weather", Vanessa showcases some of her superb Broadway style vocals.
"December Lullaby" is a smooth jazzy track with superb lyrics and a great musical arrangement which will get your head "be-boppin". My favorite track off this compilation, however, is Vanessa's rendition of "The Little Drummer Boy". Vanessa's smooth voice with the added angelic sound of the Broadway Inspirational Voices choir towards the latter portion of this track add some gospel to the mix and will fill you with the spirit of the season. It's purely magical. The choir returns in "Rise Up Shepherd and Follow" which is another highly inspirational track that is sure to lift your spirits.
In Silver and Gold, Vanessa presents us with another very inspirational and jazzy collection of holiday cheer.
Destinys Child put one out and its promise was delivered on a plastic plate with cheap picnic wear to serve it up.
I was begining to loose hope that any good Christmas albums would be made again.
Vanessa did it.
Her second Christmas album, which is not better than her first one, but just as good, is full of traditional favorites as well as some newbies. I love "Silver and Gold", the song is so peaceful and relaxing. It put me in the holiday mood instantly. Marys Boy Child is a wonderful rehash of a song All 4 One did (I don't know who origionally sang it) and as it approaches the end, it flows seemlessly into "O Holy Night". I adore the was she does "Silent Night" with a celtic twist. The song is pretty and sounds fresh. This album offers some nice gems. "Drummer Boy" has its own spotlight on this album (recall that it served as a cameo song on "Do You Hear What I Hear" from her last Christmas album) and it shines brilliantly. And "winter Weather" is a fun, cheerful Christmas song and Vanessa Williams sounds like she is all smiles while she sings it.
Silver and Gold is worthy of finding a home in anyones Christmas music collection. It is a perfect continuation of her previous effort, and hopefully an indication of what to expect on her next Holiday outing.
