For her first holiday recording, R&B diva Toni Braxton celebrates the season to be jolly with the romantic Snowflakes -- a disc filled with standards such as "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and original recordings such as "Christmas in Jamaica."

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Snowflakes is hardly a traditional Christmas record. Of its nine proper songs the two final songs are instrumental and remix variations of two cuts that came before, there are only two standards -- "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song" -- unless you want to count Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time Is Here," familiar through Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown. The rest has been co-written by Braxton and a variety of collaborators, then polished by her, Keri Lewis, and Antonio "L.A." Reid. Not surprisingly, the end result is something that's very similar to a proper Toni Braxton record, only with an appropriately hushed tone and the sultriness replacing the overt sexiness. Some of the originals are pretty good -- particularly the two opening cuts, "Holiday Celebrate" and the Shaggy duet "Christmas in Jamaica" it's always a good idea to front-load holiday records -- and the rest that don't make much of an impact are nevertheless pleasant and add to the mood. And that pretty much summarizes the record -- it's not remarkable, but it's nice, providing a nice, romantic soundtrack for an evening of cuddling in front of the tree and a roaring fire. Which is all that you could ask for, really.

    THe Best Holiday Collection EVER

    I Love Love Love this album, the songs are so great and universal, I found myself listening to the songs this past summer... I worked at a retail shop last Christmas, and we were forced to play Christmas albums every day for a month...and this album happened to be one of them...and was supprisingly the best...All of the customers were saying that they loved the songs.... Santa Please---endearing lush, warm, cozy midtempo number that is my favorite....think norah jones, and anita baker.... Holiday Celebrate- catchy uptempo tune, very passionate and exciting.... Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Christmas Time Is Here, The Christmas Song.....All worth the listen...Toni makes it soothing and adds her own spin to them This Album is too good for words...a nice one for the romantics....a must have for R@B Lovers... If all Toni's christmas' are like this CD showcases...I want to join her....very nostalgic, remarkable album in my opinion
