Elvis' second Christmas album Aug. 21 2006
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album was originally release in 1971. While it is very good, it is not on par with his first Christmas album. On a few of the songs, Elvis' voice seems to be straining and the material is just not as good as the first album. I would recommend that you pass on this album and buy the "If Every Day was Like Christmas" CD instead. It includes all the songs here and all the Christmas songs from his first Christmas album, plus 4 previously unreleased alternate takes; for a total of 24 Christmas songs!

THE MISERABLE WORLD OF CHRISTMAS Dec 8 2006
By Tom A. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1971, this was Elvis' second album of Christmas songs. After fourteen seasons of peddling Elvis' 1957 Christmas album, the folks at RCA convinced the King to record a new holiday set.

This has to be the most depressing album ever to be released with the word "Christmas" on its cover. For all those who have ever endured a holiday season marked with loneliness, regret or self-pity, this is the record for you. Songs such as "It Won't Seem Like Christmas (Without You)," "I'll Be Home on Christmas Day" and "Holly Leaves and Christmas Trees" are painful ballads reeking with sadness, grief and sorrow, and effectively project the grey mood which overshadows the rest of this album. A vocally strained Elvis sounds very tired and/or bored, and this adds to the aura of gloom. Even normally happy tunes like "Winter Wonderland" and "Silver Bells" sound depressing. Like on the first album, Elvis includes hymns, in this case "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "The First Noel," but here their solemn tone only serves to compound the negative feeling.

In stark contrast to the first album, which, despite the controversy it stirred, was a brilliant and uplifting (and at the same time serious) celebration of Christmas, this set is a miserably bleak presentation by someone who seemingly has nothing left to celebrate.
