Reviews - What do customers think about Merry Christmas Strait to You?
A well kept secret Mar 21, 2007
I was looking for Christian Christmas music when I came across this. It sounded good and at least somewhat familiar so I ordered it.
There is conviction in the singing of these praise-filled songs. It is sincere, powerful and beautifully done and brings a sense of Christ's passion year-round. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to experience a loving celebration of Jesus
Classic Country Christmas! Oct 13, 2006
I remember listening to this CD (well it was a tape then) all the time growing up! Now that I am trying to build up my own Christmas collection, this is one of the first that I looked for! George Strait is at his best, with Christmas favorites as well as several original songs. My favorites are "When it's Christmastime in Texas," "Merry Christmas Strait to You," and "There's a New Kid in Town." This is a must-buy for any George Strait fan!!
Not the best Dec 28, 2005
I love George Strait's music.If you look at my profile you will see that I have rated numerouse other cd's of his and gave them all 5 star. He is my favorite artist, but this cd is just plain bad.
If you could only have one CD this would be it. Dec 21, 2005
This is without a doubt my favorite CD. It is spectacular! The talent, composition, combined with the most inspirational story every told make this a one of a kind. Its got it all!
A GS Fan Dec 23, 2004
If you like George Strait, you will like this CD. As a previous reviewer mentioned, a few of the songs are bit slow and sound kind of wooden. Luckily its only a few songs and the rest have that Texas Swing sound that George is known for. "Merry Christmas Strait to You" is the best song on the CD.
Addicted Dec 1, 2004
I waited untill I recieved this CD to be sure it was the same artists. I have had this album on Cassette for years. After I bought a new car, I was very disappointed that there was no tape player, and I had trouble finding this album on CD in the stores.
This is Christmas Music, but I am usually burned out on it by Christmas, so after Christmas, I pack it away, but then about June I start craving the music in the album, so I dig it out and start the cycle over again.
I love George but this cd is really bad Jun 29, 2004
I love George Strait, but both of Garth Brooks Christmas cds blow this one out of the water. I make this point because I am the first to give Strait the credit as the best Country artist of the the 80's and 90's and not Brooks. This cd drags and drags again. It sounds like it was thrown together really quick to meet the season. George sings with no emotion, which is rare, and if I did not no better I would think that he was Jewish. I hate to say it, butI play allot of Christmas music during the holidays and I no longer even consider this disc. I only keep it for collection reasons.
Don't Miss This Musical! Apr 12, 2004
Emmanuel is an excellent, upbeat, intense musical portrayal of the life of Christ. While it is intended for a Christmas celebration..I received it initially just prior to Easter and fell in love with the outstanding music, vocals and the most important portrayal of the message of Christ. I've heard so many and participated in choirs for years.. this one is special!! Don't miss it!
Merry Chriatmas Strait to You Dec 23, 2003
This is the best Christmas CD ever recorded!! "Merry Christmas Strait to You" is the best Christmas song ever written.
Emmanuel Dec 16, 2003
This is undoubtedly one of the best newer Christmas musicals ever recorded. I wish it were on VHS or DVD. The songs are amazing, as are the artists. I initially bought it because I was a fan of both Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, but all the other artists contribute a lot, too, and are just as talented. The instrumentation is great, and I highly recommend that this CD be included in everyone's Christmas collection!! In my opinion, this particular CD has the BEST version of the song Emmanuel that has been pressed to date. BUY IT!
