Overview

Olivia Newton-John's 2007 holiday album, Christmas Wish, is a clean, low-key affair, where her versions of traditional Christmas carols -- sometimes performed as duets with Jon Secada, Jann Arden, Michael McDonald, and Barry Manilow -- are interspersed with brief instrumental interludes. Nothing here is too high-energy, it sometimes borders on the sleepy, but as background holiday mood music, it is effective.

Christmas Wish 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Given that so my Christmas album recycle the same material over and over, I love this album for its uniqueness and use of original material, while still providing plenty of the traditional, particularly in the melodies that serve as transitions from one track to the next.  Olivia's voice shines throughout!
