Whitney's voice is still great, but the song mix, the style and polish you would expect from a superstar were just not there. I really feel like I just didn't get $15 bucks worth of music.

Okay, Whitney has had her share of bad press over the past couple of years. What has this got to do with her music? After listening to this holiday album, you'll know the answer to that is nothing. Does she carry the same flavor or style of singing since her debut album in 1985? For the most part, yes. The only thing that's changed about her singing is that she has developed her own style. When you listen to her latest album, you realize she has matured and more importantly, has the ability to make any song uniquely her own. Her vocals are still as smooth as silk and range as high as Everest. Admittedly, she can at times get a little carried away with the melisatics. But compared to Christina Aguilera, Whitney is a traditionalist. I applaud her continued efforts and showing the critics she is here to stay for years to come. Compared to many of the fly by night performers out there, Houston has been well established now for 19 years. Music styles may change but this is one vocalist whose legacy will continue for generations like Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson & Ella Fitzgerald. You need to add her Christmas album to your collection!

Whitney's voice has matured and gained great depth and range. It is in terrific shape!! I have to admit that since I am not into x-mas music (I only know 2 of them), the album needed two listens to grow on me . Without further ado:
- The First Noel: When I listened to the sample I thought her voice was a bit airy, but now listening to the real deal, it is in great shape. The song is great, her delivery is great, and the music is good, (A)
- The Christmas Song: Great voice, well produced, and I loved the high note (flyyyyyy)... makes me wish for snow!! (A)
- Little Drummer Boy: Bobby Krista.. CUTE!! ... Whitney with all the tenderness in the world "sing baby... that's my baby".. I liked how the music picked up, and her voice is also in great shape!! (A)
- One Wish: The song started good, but then I lost total interest when she hit the chorus,, as several pointed out, the chorus needed some work, nonetheless her voice is very generous and the message is noble (B).
- O Holly Night: Faaaaalllll... Oh God the way she hit that note gave me the chills... this should be released as a special single "how to sing" sent to all those "singers" out there.
- I'll be home for x-mas: Something about the music I don't like, but otherwise the song sounds good, her voice is good, but I think the rest of the album overshadows this one. (B+).
- Deck The Halls/Silent Night: Amazingly, I LOVE this mix!!! Very nice, very energetic, nontheless, Whitney did hit those notes like nobody's business,,, sing it girl! (A)
- Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas: Talk about a timeless classic!! Good voice, but I thought the music was a bit loud at parts (i.e. her voice maybe should have been mixed a bit lowder). (A-).
- O Come Emanuel: OH MY GOD!!

As a child, I loved Christmas music, so I was just a lad when I first looked forward to the day there would be a Whitney Houston Christmas Album. As I grew older I saw some of Whitney's contemporaries make Christmas albums. Mariah Carey made one at the height of her carrier, and it showed. That album is a classic with some of the best renditions of the best Christmas songs. As the years went on and I became a man I saw Whitney's carrier decline, and was saddened by choices that she made in her personal life. Now, in my golden years, Whitney has put out the album I longed for when I still had teeth. Now I have Whitney and Mariah's albums, one a Christmas classic recorded in the singer's prime, the other, trite and completely forgettable- coming after years of decline and personal abuse, as she tries without purpose to mock other, much younger, trendy singer's of our day. To say she turned her back on her core fan base would be a shallow analysis, as her 180 goes so much broader and deeper. I would recommend you stay away from this recording, like you should stay away from any ship without a rudder, moving steadily toward jagged rocks and certain doom.

This is a wonderful album from Whitney Houston, better than I expected. She imparts most of the songs with soul and feeling; she sings Christmas as it should be sung. She's not just bleating the songs out, like Ashanti. Generally, the arrangements and production are also fresh and impeccable. The strongest tracks are the more gospel-influcend songs, like "O Come O Come Emanuel", "Joy to the World", and "I'll be Home For Christmas." The zippy medley "Deck the Halls/Silent Night" also works, surprisingly, as does the original ballad "One Wish." Her best offering, though is "O Holy Night", a song that needs a VOICE to do it justice, and I think Whitney fits the bill beautifully.
On the negative side, I didn't care for "Little Drummer Boy" (the cheesy addition of non-singing Bobbi Kristina is a mistake). "The Christmas Song" is also not so great. She adds nothing to a song that has been attempted by many and mastered by few. Throughout the album, too, excessive "riffs" which seem to include intolerable mangling of classic lyrics and proper grammer, only serve to irritate. There are too may examples to name.
Overall, I think this is one of the better Christmas albums out there, and one of the best this year, from what I've heard. I'll admit that it doesn't trump Mariah's classic, but it's still stirring and highly "listenable." Four stars. Nicely done.
