Yes, it's Celine Dion.
I know that people have their negative opinions of Celine, and I have some to as I am only a moderate fan. However, I must say that this album is thoroughly enjoyable. Christmas albums are often dismissed as just a safe piece of product to earn some cash. While this album is pretty safe (like most of Celine's releases), it's supposed to be for enjoyment around the holidays and Christmas albums are supposed to be light. Her voice and her style of music work well for the seasonal genre. Standout tracks include:
"Don't Save It All For Christmas Day" - an original Christmas ballad about showing love all year round, and not just on Christmas.
"Brahm's Lullaby" - a very soothing rendition of this classic lullaby. She sounds very good went her voice is restrained.
"Blue Christmas" - a fantastic jazzy remake of the song made popular by the King, Elvis Presley. I love his version, and Celine does this song justice.
"The Prayer" - This is a duet with Andrea Bocelli. They both have really strong voices yet different musical styles so they compliment each other.
"I'm Your Angel" - This #1 hit isn't a Christmas song, but it fits well with this CD. R. Kelly sounds great, and this unlikely duet is very nice. I'm not surpirsed it was a huge success.
So, I can honestly say that this CD is good. Regardless if you are a big fan or not, I think you will actually enjoy this album. Give it a chance.
