A freaky funky Christmas,
This review is from: Cee Lo's Magic Moment (Audio CD)
"Cee-Lo's Magic Moment" should bring lots of cheer this Christmas and thereafter. Opening is the bouncy retro soul "What Christmas Means To Me", followed by the Jazzy shuffle "Baby It's Cold Outside" which features his fellow Voice judge Christina Aguilera.
There are the standards; "The Christmas Song", a swinging "White Christmas", the Blues-ey "Please Come Home For Christmas" (with gritty vocals by Green),a rocking "Run Rudolph Run", Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas", "Merry Christmas, Baby" (with Rod Stewart and Trombone Shorty), and "Silent Night" (which starts off spare, building to a thrilling crescendo), to mention a few.
He covers Joni Mitchell's melancholic "River". The bouncy "All I Need Is Love" is an original Cee-lo composition, a duet with The Muppets which also interpolates their "Mahna Mahna" and shows off his fun side, as does "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" featuring a cappella group Straight No Chaser providing theatrical harmonies. My favourite is "Mary Did You Know" which is just piano, sweeping strings, and his vocals soaring majestically.
This should make for magic moments this Christmas.
