A Fan of Christmas music is sorely disappointed
I love Christmas music, and make sure to check out the new releases each year to see what new interpretations and tracks are being added to the roster. Since Faith Hill is a very popular voice in Country music, I was interested to see what flavor she would add to this album. But when I listened to the CD, I was disappointed and disgusted. <BR/><BR/>There isn't a redeeming track on this CD. Hill seems to have no idea how to control her voice, and so she just belts every single word, overpowering these classic Christmas songs. There's no originality in the arrangements -- they're the same versions you've heard a million times before, oversung by someone who thinks the pure strength of their voice compensates for lack of emotion or personality while singing. They don't even sound Country -- they just sound generic, and her voice makes you flinch. The one original track, A Baby Changes Everything, is forgettable at best.<BR/><BR/>If you're looking for a country Christmas CD, skip this one and go with George Strait's "Classic Christmas". Mary Chapin Carpenter has a lovely little Christmas album called "Come Darkness, Come Light". If you're looking for a fun and bright Christmas album, you can't go wrong with Kristin Chenoweth's "A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas". But save your money and skip the Faith Hill album.
