Amazon.com

Just when you resign yourself to the fact that everything's probably been done in the world of holiday albums, a disc like A Joyful Noise comes along. Not that there's exactly anything new about the collection: with the exception of two originals, including the title track, the choices are all classics. But Jo Dee Messina brings a unique charm, warmth, and subtle sexiness to standards like "The Christmas Song" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," attributes that are often missing from yuletide releases. As a vocalist, Messina could teach today's pop divas a thing or two about how to create memorable vocals without resorting to histrionics. Vince Gill shows up to add even more charm on a duet of "Silver Bells." The nifty arrangements certainly count for a lot, and something like the haunting harmonica solo on "Let It Snow!" is truly unique to recordings of that particular song. But in the end, it's Messina's wonderful voice, spirit, and personality that make this the finest Christmas release of 2002. --Bill Holdship

By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on August 31, 2003
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jo Dee built her success on predominately up-tempo songs recorded in a contemporary country style. I therefore expected that any Christmas album would reflect that, but I realized from other reviews that this album is not like that at all. In fact, this is a generally mellow album, with an orchestral backing used sparingly but effectively. The result is an album that bears no relation to the contemporary country scene, but is nevertheless a very enjoyable listening experience - at least to me, though some country fans will inevitably be alienated. While this is different from Jo Dee's other work, it is an easy-listening musical style that I appreciate in a different way.
Jo Dee demonstrates that she can sing with restraint as she works her way through a succession of classic Christmas songs. Only towards the end of the set does she loosen up, but even then she does not use the full power of her voice, which is on her other albums. After all the classics, the album ends with two excellent original songs.
Jo Dee's die-hard fans will accept this change of style as a contrast to her other albums, as will those (like me) with eclectic tastes. If you are looking for a contemporary country Christmas album, this is not it. Likewise, Jo Dee's less committed fans may hesitate. If in doubt, you might be wise to listen to some of it before buying. I thought long and hard before buying this but I'm very glad I did.

I know it's still kind of early yet, but Jo Dee's (finally!) holiday CD has got me in the spirit. The only thing more exciting than the CD is her upcoming Christmas tour!

Jo Dee seems to stretch out her voice more than usual and at the same time, it is soft (most noticeable on "I'll Be Home For Christmas"). "Sleigh Ride" is playful and upbeat, and her version of "Let it Snow" is trademark Jo Dee sassy, especially cute on both is the pause...then giggle at the end. Another very cool thing is the children used as background singers on "Winter Wonderland". Slightly more experienced background singers join Jo Dee on "What Child is This" (Kenny Rogers) and "Silver Bells" (Vince Gill)

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" gives me chills when I hear it, it is just Jo Dee and a piano - it is very touching in its simplicity. Jo Dee co-wrote "Keep the Faith" in her usual style of rising above hardships - it is the best song on the CD! Also original is the title track, about the hope of the season.

Masterfully produced with always wonderful work by the Nashville String Machine, Jo Dee's holiday CD is heads above the others. Her personal story and the pictures in the liner notes make this truly a must-have!

Jo Dee Messina has outdone herself once more. Not only did she co-produce this nostalgic collection, she recorded it LIVE in the studio and rises to the occassion in her usual fashion. All of these timeless classics take on a whole new meaning and sound when Jo Dee sings them for us; with feeling and warmth. She's a real pro and proves it to us on this cd. You'll be able to see why people go in droves to see her perform live...it's what she was born to do.

Jo Dee's beautiful voice is well represented in her Christmas release. For the most part the album is very traditional, due to Jo Dee's traditional feelings towards the holiday. She adds her own characteristics to the album when she laughs and sighs in some of the tracks. She's backed by a wonderful orchestra - the music itself it's absolutely wonderful. To me, it sounds much like she does when she performs live. There were no tricks done to the album to make her sound better, all of it is pure talent. The only un-tradional tracks, being the last 2 add to the album. "A Joyful Noise" sums up how many of us may feel and truly hits close to home. "Keep the Faith" is not really a holiday track, but a truly inspirational song, written by Jo Dee herself. All in all, it's superb and I suggest you add it to your collection RIGHT NOW!

After a disapointing Season for Romance by Lee Ann Womack, this album brings us back to counrty. Jo Dee Messina's A Joyful Noise is a traditional country Christmas album without the twang. She brings her emotions into it, even laughing during Let it Snow. It is a wonderful collection of the Christmas classics. The duets with Vince Gil and Kenny Rogers only add to the fun. This album should rank right up with Martina McBride's White Christmas in your collection!

Since the day I heard Jo Dee was releasing a Christmas Album, I was so happy to hear that, even though it was mid-summer. Originally she was supposed to release it in early October, then they pushed it back a few weeks to Oct.29! Anyways I bought it at Tower Records and I just love the CD! The CD Booklet and Cover are Beautiful as well. There are many pictures of Jo Dee as a child, pictures of her with her family, and in the studio recording THIS album! There are also a few Stunning professinal pictures of Jo Dee in the CD Booklet too! I was also very IMPRESSED by Jo Dee's liner notes. I was touched to see her write a very pretty thank-you to her Savior, because that is what Christmas is all about,right? I'm the kind of person that not only looks forward to hearing the music, but I also look forward to seeing the CD liner notes and pitctures, etc etc..... Now let's get to the Music! My favorite song on this Album is "Sleigh Ride". It's very upbeat! I also enjoy two NEW tracks, "A Joyful Noise",and "Keep the Faith". Both songs are VERY TOUCHING! She has definitely out-done herself on this CD! Her vocals are as good as always and she still has that kinda spunky attitude in this CD!...This CD is one of the best Christmas CD's ever!(In my opinion) For Jo Dee to take time out of her hectic summer schedule to record this Christmas CD is AMAZING! I was surprised she would make a Christmas CD this year! I'm glad because now every Christmas, Jo Dee will be a part of me decorating my home!...I hope everyone enjoys this record as much as I do! I definitely give it Five Stars! Merry Christmas and Enjoy!...
