I bought this cd as a Xmas gift and they had played it all through the holidays. I haven't heard of anyone that didn't like it.

I thought it would be more contemporary and was surprised to see how many country artists there were on the cd. I love country but would have liked to hear more pop on it.

This is a really good collection of Christmas tunes by a varied group of talented artists. If you play one cd at Christmas, choose this one!

Il y a de bon artistes et de bonne chansons mais il manque un fil conducteur entre elles. Ce n'est pas un album mais une compilation de chanson.

Not their best release, but still some great covers Oct. 17 2012
By Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've bought several "Very Special Christmas" albums over the years. They always seem to get my favorite artists to sing my favorite carols! Often the albums are okay to good, rarely are they phenomenal, but there's always a handful of covers that are worthy of adding to your holiday playlist. As for this "25th Anniversary Edition" I can say that it is comparable to previous releases, maybe not quite as good, though certainly a worthy addition to your collection. And, of course, the money goes towards a great cause!

Some Highlights:
* Jewel - Angels We Have Heard on High
* Michael Buble - It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas (his whole Christmas album is great, BTW)
* Cheap Trick - I Want You for Christmas
* Martina McBride - Please Come Home for Christmas

Some Midlights
* Grayson Sanders & Jono - Something in the Air
* Jason Mraz - Winter Wonderland
* One Republic - Christmas Without You

Some Lowlights
* Train - Joy to the World
* Jordin Sparks - Do You Hear What I Hear

The remaining tracks aren't really bad or good and not particularly worth mentioning.

Overall, some good renditions of old favorites mixed with some pretty dreadful butchery, mixed with a few decent tries. In many ways it's just nice to get festive tracks from your favorite artists that would otherwise never happen were it not for this charity. I'll probably put my favorite tracks on a Christmas playlist and let the others get ignored, but I don't feel bad for buying it because I think the Special Olympics is extremely important.

Some clever surprises tucked in here! To: ME From: ME! Nov. 28 2012
By P. M. Hawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this bleary-eyed on a lighting deal after being up all night Black Friday shopping. The next day, I wondered if I should really be spending money on myself during this season of giving. After listening this morning my resounding answer was, "Heck yes!"

I love Christmas, Christmas music, the season, I love it all. It had been a while since I bought myself a new CD. I listened on my commute this morning, and couldn't wait for my commute home to listen to the rest. There are songs and artists on here that should appeal to a wide range of audiences, people who enjoy todays hits, classic rock, acoustical and country. Traditional covers, and new songs are featured. I skipped over one or two songs (as you would on any album) because they weren't quite for me, but loved most of them!

Music is all about personal tastes, but some of my favorites included, "Joy to the World" by Train- who wittingly slip in some "Calling all Angels", Cheap Trick revising their, "I want you to want me", to a clever "I Want you for Christmas", and Christina Aguilera bringing it home with, "Oh Holy Night" - slipping in the Lords Prayer and some jazzy gospel music.

To ease my guilt, I'm coming back and ordering another one, this time sending to my sister to enjoy.

P.S. As a bonus, there was a coupon included in the case for 2 free bowling games at participating centers (expires Jan 31, 2013). Great music, free bowling and supporting the excellent Special Olympics organization! Beat that!

The latest holiday CD to raise money for Special Olympics Dec 9 2012
By Michael Ceciliani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like the recent VSC CDs, this one has songs that are hit and miss. A total of 16 songs. Some of my favorite tracks are:

Angels We Have Heard on High - Jewel
It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Xmas - Michael Buble
I Want You For Christmas - Cheap Trick
Mary Did You Know - Rascal Flatts
Best Christmas Ever - Wonder Girls
Please Come Home For Xmas - Martina McBride
December 25 - Francesca Battistelli
Christmas Song - Dave Matthews Band - NOT the Nat King Cole song

The money is for a good cause. Hard to believe it's been a quarter of a century that the first VSC CD was released. There's also a 25th anniversary VSC CD with a green cover that has Christian artists on it. Haven't heard that one. But I recommend this one with the maroon cover.

Ordered 7 CDs. 6 for gifts and 1 for me. Play it everyday and love all the different songs and artists. Love the Christian themes and that it benefits Special Olympics. Want to order more!
