Home for Christmas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It's always a sign that a group is hot if they release a holiday album mere months after their debut. That's the case with *NSYNC. Their debut was released in America in late March, and in early December, Home for Christmas hit the shelves. Much of the album is devoted to newer material, with only a handful of songs qualifying as standards: "The Christmas Song," "The First Noel," and "O Holy Night." All of it is given the familiar *NSYNC sheen, alternating between slickly produced adult contemporary ballads and lite dance-pop. Fans of the group will certainly find it reasonably enjoyable, even though it makes it clear that the group simply can't rival such peers...

    Puts you in the holiday mood!

    I thought that this album was great. Their voices were so harmonious and soothing that it got me into that holiday spirit. I must say my favorite track is track #2- Under My Tree. If you love *NSYNC and you love the holidays, you'll love this album.

    Great Artists

    'N SYNC has proven that they are truly talented artists. This album is great and helps put everyone in the Christmas mood. Buy It! and I hopr the critic actually buys the album and listens to it before he bashes it and says that it has no charisma, he obviously has never heard good music!

    I really hope they are saving their money

    These guys should be ashamed of themselves. But anyway you can make it I guess. I would not be able to live with myself knowing others perceive me as a sacharrine- flavored, non-intellectual entity created by a money hungry corporation and that my day of glory will be as short as The New Kids on the Block, Debbie Gibson, and Tiffany. I hope they are preparing themselves for the ridicule the aforementioned 80's popsters had to go thru as well.

    The Best Christmas CD by a pop group in years

    I think that this is a great Christmas and Holiday Cd that is great for all ages! It should be heard by everyone, even if you don't celebrate Christmas. If you buy one Christmas album this year, make it this one!
