Reviews - What do customers think about The Christ (Song For Joseph)?

excellent Christmas music  Feb 8, 2007
If you love Billy Dean's voice then this is a must for your holiday collection. Pure Billy, and uplifting for the holidays.
Enjoyable Christmas Music  Dec 6, 2006
Here's a pleasant addition to anyone's collection of Christmas CDs. Dean's warm voice reminds me of Chris Kristopherson. The guitar accompaniment and additional instrumentation do not overwhelm the songs.
Two tunes are duets (one with David Pack and one with Dolly Parton) which varies the sound. The first two tunes were new to me (The Christ and Mary, Did You Know?) and I'm always glad to expand beyond the same old holiday tunes. Even when he reverts to standards like Silent Night and The First Noel, they sound fresh and sincere.
I particularly liked his rendition of What Child Is This. I'd given this as a gift for my sister, but after hearing it, I need to buy another copy for myself.
The last song (Shine On) is upbeat, energetic and quite different from traditional hymns.
A sincere album  Dec 11, 2005
Many artists cut a Christmas album for the commercial value. On this heartfelt album, one gets the sense the Billy Dean is singing from a sincere Christian faith. There is a definite New Traditional Country feel, but it is so tastefully done, that the traditional carols are enhanced, not squeezed into the genre for the sake of a country music audience. Billy Dean has a pleasant voice, calm and relaxed. The duets add to the feeling of a family singing carols together in a loving Christmas tableau. It reminds me of those times each member of our family was "required" to bring their instruments to my mother-in-law's home for "performances" around the piano. This album may not become a classic, but it is certainly enjoyable and a worthwhile addition to the collection of anyone that loves Christmas music OR country music, a perfect blend.
Imagine inviting some musician friends over for a pre-Christmas gathering and they all sit around and play their acoustic instruments on traditional Christmas songs. That's what Billy Dean's THE CHRIST reminds me of. I can see them sitting by the fireside, with their acoustic guitars, cello, piano, etc. This is by no means a "showy" collection, but heartfelt and simple. Only the last song, SHINE ON, wouldn't fit in this motif, as it is more of a Christian "rock" song, and though it's okay, it sort of ruins the pre-established mood. Dean is one of those country singers who doesn't have a remarkable voice, but it is pleasant and emotional. He is joined by former Ambrosia leader David Pack on a touching rendition of MARY DID YOU KNOW that one reviewer found to be a little too much on Pack's part. I disagree, though---Pack has a marvelous voice and his high tenor blends beautifully with Dean's baritone and the result is moving. Not being a fan of Dolly Parton, I found her inclusion on SILENT NIGHT a little irritating, but one can't deny the sincerity of her vocal delivery. Dean uses his daughter Hannah on the lovely JUST FOR YOU AND ME, but unlike some others (Vince Gill, Collin Raye most noteably), he doesn't force her out in front to do a solo; her harmonies are complimentary to Dad's lead. Cellist John Catchings and guitarist Larry Beard add some lovely counterpoints to the songs, most of which are traditional carols, and the lovely new song THE CHRIST. This CD certainly won't rank as a classic, but it is moving and would be a nice change in your Christmas collection.
Moving and divinely inspiring!  Nov 30, 2005
Billy Dean's humble cover pose compliments this beautiful and thoughtful tribute to Christ. It's refreshing to hear an artist who is not afraid to let their faith resonate through their music especially at Christmas. This is anything but your average Christmas album. Billy Dean's renditions of traditional Christmas favorites shine with simple warmth and sincerity (not slick or overly produced). I found more than a few tears filling my eyes. The `Silent Night' duet with Dolly Parton is particularly poignant. A huge fan of Christmas songs from New age to Rock to Country, I've heard most of the traditional carols in hundreds of forms; still I found Dean's performances (The First Noel, Little Drummer Boy, What Child Is This, Away In a Manger etc.) captured my heart and imagination filling me with that sense of Christmas Spirit I long for each year. Dean's deep mellow vocals meld well with the down tempo and simple instrumentation (i.e. the simple guitar thumping and strumming for Little Drummer Boy).
Dean `book-ends' the traditional carols with contemporary expressions of personal faith (`The Christ' and `Shine On') as well as the centerpiece `Just for You and Me'.
From the beginning homage to `the Christ' to the stirring ending `Shine On' I found every song on this Christmas album enjoyable and worshipful. Each song comes across as heart-felt. Short and sweet, this is definitely an album that will go on my iPod Christmas play-list in its entirety. Of the dozen or so new Christmas CD's I have this year, I'm thankful to have this one that keeps the focus on the `reason for the season' from start to finish!
