GLORIOUS holiday album! Audio quality is jaw-dropping,
This review is from: This Is Christmas (Audio CD)
I'll be honest, I'd never heard of this Katherine Jenkins lady but after listening to a few samples I was hooked on her pure, pitch-perfect, sweeping voice. Turned out to be a good buy! This album is fantastic.
You'll find a good mix of chorus classics (Hark the Herald Angel Sings, O Come O Come Emmanuel) which she nails perfectly, but there's also several pop favorites such as "Santa Baby" and "The Christmas Song". Santa Baby is fabulous. It showcases her perfect voice, but the real winner is the orchestra. The whole album sounds GREAT, but "Santa Baby" literally transforms your living room into a live concert hall. That track is worth the album price alone. Her rendition of "The Christmas Song" is also spot-on and perhaps one of the best covers in years.
OVERALL: Highly recommended Christmas album for your 2012 playlist (and years to come) - every track is recorded in stunning audio quality that has a sweeping, live-like feel. When I listen to this it sounds like Katherine Jenkins and an entire orchestra is performing in my living room. Great vocals, flawless productions.. doesn't get much better than this.
