Reviews - What do customers think about Christmas?
big band classics are back! Jan 17, 2007
jaci, as stated in a personal interview, was trying to capture the 'big band' sound of classical christmas greats like bing crosby and andy williams. in my estimation, she succeeded, and then some.
her vocals are full of richness and depth, her musical backgrounds ring with christmas cheer, and her involvement of the chipmunks inspired.
i highly recommend this christmas album to anyone who loves good christmas music.
Jaci comes through again! Jan 16, 2007
I have been a fan for Jaci Velasquez for the past eight years and enjoy hearing her voice in both languages. I do not speak Spanish but enjoy her artistic abilities none the less. This album lived up to the Velasquez name in my book- My family and I only really enjoy the traditional sounding Christmas carols and tend to not enjoy the revised versions. Jaci's album not only made sure the carols were sung traditionally but she has given us a gift a couple new songs that will be added to my Christmas traditions! Overall I LOVE this album and the only reason I did not give it a full five stars was that I am done with that Chipmunk Song. Sorry everybody.
Best Christmas CD ever! Dec 11, 2004
If you want to give someone the perfect gift this year, choose Jaci Velasquez Christmas! Even though this came out a long time ago, I still listen to it all winter!
You'll love "O come, O come, Emmanuel". It sounds really cool. You'll also burst out laughing every time you listen to "The Chipmunk Song", where the chipmunks try to speak Spanish. You'll also enjoy "Season of Love", which is my second favourite song on the CD. But the best song on the entire CD has to be her version of "Felis Navidad". I highly recommend this CD to everyone!
"Christmas" is beautiful Apr 2, 2004
I would buy this album just for "The Angel Song", which is the second track, a truly angelic and original song. But the rest of the album stands on its own, too. Sure, the songs sound slow when you listen to them in the summer, but on a frosty winter day it's absolutely perfect! "The Chipmunk Song" is hilarious, and "Feliz Navidad" is a nice change from the other soft, breathy songs. Makes a great Christmas present for anyone who likes quiet Christmas songs!
This is pretty bad stuff Dec 12, 2003
Okay, so the Jaci Velazquez worshipers out there will want to kill me for this, but I don't think I've ever heard such an awful Christmas CD as this one. I bought it as a gift for my wife, who adores Jaci, and my wife wanted to throw it away after listening to it. This album goes to prove that just because someone has a good voice and strong talent, that person can't necessarily sing effectively in other styles, such as jazz, crooning, etc. There are a few gems here (hence the second star) such as tracks 1, 2, and 11, and tracks 3, 4, and 5 are decent, but there are also some awful songs. Her version of "Let It Snow. . ." is truly painful to listen to, and the remake of "The Chipmunk Song" is pathetic at best. I love Jaci's contemporary stuff, but she's out of her element here, trying to pull off what Amy Grant did with her second Christmas album, and it simply doesn't work.
