Editorial Reviews

a very merry perri christmas pairs an all-new seasonal staple, "Something About December" alongside unique renditions of such Yuletide favorites as The Carpenters' "Merry Christmas Darling" and Charles Brown's "Please Come Home For Christmas." Produced by multiple Grammy Award winner David Hodges (Evanescence, Kelly Clarkson), the 6-track collection is further highlighted by a magical new take on the John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band classic, "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)," featuring choral contributions from such diverse artists as Michelle Branch, LP, Bushwalla, and Boys Like Girls' Martin Johnson.

"I've wanted to make a very merry perri christmas my whole life," says Perri. "Christmas is so big in my family, and I've been singing these songs since I was three years old. This EP is a collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs, plus one original, "Something About December" which my brother and I wrote about finding Christmas wherever you are in the world, because it lives in your heart."

I'm one of the many who were obsessed with Christina Perri's "Jay of Hearts" single. I thought it was such a breath of fresh air in the mix of thump-thump-thump Top 40 tracks and I loved the emotion behind the song. Naturally, I was interested in how her voice would sound over an EP of Christmas favorites. Here are my reviews, track-by-track.

01. Something About December - 4/5 - A soulful, lulling song that is beautiful.. but doesn't sound like Christmas. It's not that I only like holly-jolly, but something about the production just doesn't make you think cocoa and maxing out the credit card. Perfect for a candle lit evening at home, however. The best thing about it is that it's not a cover of a song we've all heard a zillion times.

02. Merry Christmas Darling - 5/5 - a beautiful cover, very eased-back production that is relaxing and inspired. One of my favorite tracks.

03. Please Come Home for Christmas - 3/5 - a lightly more energetic number that's orchestrated by a simple drum-snare with sparse jingle bells and guitar. A good background instrumental that let's Christina's voice show through. Not an absolute favorite, but I wouldn't skip it.

04. Ave Maria - 2/5 - this song has been done and overdone so many times that its appeal has been mostly lost for me, yet still certain artists manage to nail it and make it fresh. I don't think Christina did that. It's beautiful, don't get me wrong, and meshes well with the album overall, but hardly the best rendition.

05. Happy Xmas (War is Over) - 4/5 - I like this cover. It maintains a live vocals of the 60-70s feel, while offering a modern freshness that works. I don't usually like this song, but I do like it here.

Christina Perri's new EP has excellent Christmas music; her voice sounds great and I only wish there were more songs here!

"Something About December," a charming song co-written by Christina herself, features her squarely front and center and the music fits in perfectly with her vocals. "Merry Christmas Darling" is a song I first heard sung by Karen Carpenter; and I would like to think that Karen would have loved Christina's rendition of this evergreen classic! Christina sings "Merry Christmas Darling" with all her heart and soul; I really like this ballad. "Please Come Home for Christmas" is beautiful to hear when Christina Perri performs it; this number shines bright in her more than capable hands. "Ave Maria" gets a stunning treatment from Christina who never lets go of a superfluous note; and "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" by John Lennon and Yoko Ono again features Christina's wonderful voice at its best. The track set ends with "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" which was first sung by Judy Garland in "Meet Me in St. Louis;" Christina handles this like a pro and Judy would have loved it.

This is an excellent EP from Christina Perri that is sure to please her fans; and people who enjoy high quality control holiday music will not be disappointed.

I have been to see Christina in concert, which was the best concert I have ever been too, I have her amazing CD and now have her beautiful Christmas EP. She has hands down one of the best voices and her voice has that perfect Christmas sound. I love her original song too. I just wish this was a full length cd. Can't wait to hear what else she comes out with.

If you're a fan of Christina Perri OR a Christmas music addict, buy this album! It features 5 classic Christmas tunes and 1 Christina Perri original, all of which are beautiful. When my cd arrived, I immediately turned it on for a listen. I surprised myself by listening to it over and over again! Perri's rendition of Ave Maria may be the best I've ever heard. My only complaint is that I wish there were more songs. I'd love a full album of ten to fifteen holiday songs. Hopefully she'll release a bigger collection next year full of songs other than the ones on A Very Merry Perri Christmas (love the album title as well!). Ultimately, this album is a lovely rendition of classics by Perri's unique voice!

Track listing:
Something About December
Happy Xmas War is Over

Actually I mean hurry up and use your mouse and order this Christina Perri new Christmas CD. I being a "big fan" of Christina's voice and song attitude ( she is always smiling and seems to be utterly enjoying what she is playing and singing for us ). You will be pleasantly surprised by this 6 - song package.
The new original Perri-Hodges-Perri song " Something About December " is a jewel under your Christmas tree. You have to start playing this song Dec 1st.....it has a "memories to share" feel and now I know why Christina dedicated this CD to her Mom for 25 musical Christmases. A "classic" in my songbook and I will play it again and again in my car and at all the Christmas parties I attend.
The standard fair - other 5 songs, all have the Perri-stamp on them. Her " Merry Christmas Darling" is the best version since Karen Carpenter and her brother sand it way back when. She stayed true to the song and the arrangement is perfect.The " fifties-sound" is evoked in her uptempo, " Please Come Home for Christmas" - and she shows that " soul " punch to this rendition. Now, why did she attempt "Ave Maria" .... I was frightened after being a Joan Sutherland fan and waiting for the " high C " but Christina's put a simple folk feel to this blessed song. Just a acoustic guitar and violin and her down-earthy voice. A "real surprise". The Lennon-Ono " Happy Xmas ( War is Over )is pitch perfect. Just missing the Lennon-echo but the arrangement more than makes up for it. And, finally, " Have Yourself .................." is the star on the top of the tree. Just perfect and so true to the song...( no Rod Stewart runs here ). Just goosebump material.
To end, I'd like to say, I know Christina was smiling while singing these songs - because it sure put a "big smile" in my heart. I will cherish this simple CD for years and Christmases' to come.
