Glee: The Music - The Christmas Album

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
The Christmas Album is Glee's fifth release in 2010, and the first of two full-length albums to be issued in November alone. Appearing several weeks after another holiday-themed record -- The Rocky Horror Glee Show -- it features a handful of wintertime tunes, from the standard crop of Christmas carols to more secular fare like Frank Loesser's "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and the Carpenters' "Merry Christmas Darling." Most of the carols are what you'd expect: slick, sentimental, and performed in Glee's familiar Broadway-pop style, with solos by the cast members and backup vocals by a group of unseen professionals.

"Baby, It's Cold Outside," on the other hand, melts under the unexpected warmth of Chris Colfer's duet with Darren Criss, who plays Kurt's openly gay love interest. A duet between two male characters -- with lyrics like "Gosh, your lips are delicious," no less -- is a refreshingly risqué move for Fox TV, not to mention a definite album highlight. After all, Glee became popular by pushing boundaries and ignoring convention, so it's reassuring to see the spark still burning.

    Is It Hot In Here Or Is It The Chris & Criss Duet?

    Most likely the Duet. The Christmas episode was NOT one of my favorites. Actually, this is the time I didn't purchase the entire album, Just one song. Hell, if it wasn't for Baby, Baby, It's Cold Out Side, I wouldn't even bother giving this three stars. :shrugs:

    Who doesn't love Glee?

    If you love the show you will love this CD. I bought it before the Christmas Episode aired, but everyone loves it from the baby to the teenager, to the mom and grandparents. This is a must have for your Christmas CD collection, and a DUH just get it if you are a GLEEK.

    Kids Review - Glee Is Usually Great!

    I absolutely love Glee, so I picked up this cd the day that it was released. While the songs are nice, I really wish that they would have done a 2-disc set with this...1 cd of contemporary songs, and 1 cd of the older traditional songs. I really only like 3 of the 12 songs on this: "Last Christmas", "Deck the Rooftop" and "Baby, It's Cold Outside". I'm sure there are a lot of people my age and much younger that haven't ever heard half of the original Christmas songs on this, so I'm surprised that they went with some of the older, dreary songs. I really hope they'll give us a better selection next year.
