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!
