I love music and I absolutely love to listen to Christmas music. I'm an 80s child but I grew up listening to a lot of the classic artists like Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole as well as modern-day groups like Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I've heard Josh Groban's voice on the radio and love how powerful it is! I didn't own any of his music and saw that the Deluxe Edition of Noel was recently released. His version of "O Holy Night" is what sold me on this album so I ordered the audio CD version since it was cheaper at the time and came with the free AutoRip versions of the songs.
The deluxe edition of Noel contains six more songs than the original version for a total of 19 songs. Many of the songs are traditional songs with some of them being contemporary songs. This album spans about 80 minutes long. The booklet that comes with the audio CD version does not contain the lyrics.
I typically buy a new Christmas CD every year and this one seemed like a great choice for this year! I've already listened to it countless times and I love it! My favorite carol is "O Holy Night" and his version is amazing. Some of my other favorites from this album are "O Come All Ye Faithful," a beautiful song sung with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and "Happy Xmas (War is Over)." Honestly, I love all of the songs on this album but those are a few of my favorites. Both my mom and mother-in-law like Josh Groban too and I've recommended this album to them. My mother-in-law always hosts a big Christmas party and she likes to play some background music. I felt this one would be a great choice and she was delighted that I told her about this CD!
I love this CD already and plan to listen to it a lot throughout the Christmas season! I didn't already have the original Noel album so buying the deluxe edition was a good choice for me. If you already have the original one, I'd recommend at least buying the six new songs. If you don't have any of these songs, stop what you're doing and buy this album right now!
