I am always on the lookout for a good christmas cd. And when you put Sand in the title I'm hooked as that is where I want to be!! Ah the dream....

Anyway thought she did a great new cd. My least favorite is the Brad Paisley duet but maybe it will grow on me. My favorites are Christmas in the Sand, Every day is Christmas, Mistletoe and Happy Christmas. But it is generally just a great cd you can put in the cd player and sit back and relax. Would recommend it for any Colbie fan or someone who likes easy listening relaxing christmas music.

Colbie has such a great soothing voice. I love all of her cds. I am always looking for different Christmas songs, not just the same ones being redone over and over. I love this album. so glad I bought it. it arrived early and in perfect condition.

HASH(0xa432d198) out of 5 stars Sun Soaked Christmas Oct. 23 2012
By Tyson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been a fan of Colbie ever since 'Bubbly' and was naturally interested in how her luscious voice would translate to the old Christmas classics. I was slightly off-put by the idea of a sandy, summery theme (since I'm a white Christmas guy myself) but as it turned out I really appreciated (for the most part) how she gave a new spin to old favorites. Here's what I thought, track by track:

01. Merry Christmas Baby (feat Brad Paisley) - 4/5 - Definitely "beachy" and laid back with a country twang. Honky Tonk restaurants will be playing this all holiday long.

02. Santa Baby - 3/5 - No Eartha Kitt, but again Colbie gives it a new summery flair and in that sense, it works.

03. Christmas in the Sand - 5/5 - this may be my favorite because it's not an old has-been cover and Colbie's voice really gets to shine. Plus it's super cute.

04. Baby It's Cold Outside - 2/5 - It takes a LOT of chemistry to make this duet work and many have failed miserably. I don't think this is a complete disaster, but the chemistry is not there and it's sung way too fast. There are much better renditions. It also doesn't make sense, given the "Beach Christmas" theme.

05. The Christmas Song - 2/5 - Everyone in the world has covered this song. Colbie's voice does sound good and the more country production gives it some originality, but I'd just call it a mediocre filler.

06. Santa Claus is Coming to Town - 4/5 - I actually like this cover. The summery instrumental combined with a slightly new vocal style makes it sound fresh and exciting.

07. Every Day is Christmas - 3/5 - Again I like that this song isn't an overdone cover, but it doesn't work nearly as well as "Christmas in the Sand" this may be partly to blame to Jason Reeves who doesn't add anything to the song and actually distracts from Colbie.

08. Silver Bells - 1/5 - An old classic, but, like "Baby It's Cold" it sounds awkward in the mix of sandy renditions. You'll want to skip this track or will at least be glad when it's over.

09. Winter Wonderland - 3/5 - No real complaints. There's better covers, but this rendition sounds good and mixes well with the rest of the album.

10. Mistletoe - 5/5 - Love this one. It brings back that country flair that makes this album unique and has a great chorus.

11. Happy Christmas - 3/5 - A filler that's a little more. This isn't one of my favorite songs, but the vocal work is nice and it does work well with the album.

12. Auld Lang Syne - Slowed down a lot for the last track. It is an awkwardly emotional and moody rendition. Perhaps more true to the original tone of the song, but comes across as a sad and depressed way to end a chipper album. It does give a chance for Colbie's voice to shine, however.

OVERALL: An above-average Christmas album for sure, but not quite a must-have.

I was hesitant about the sunny Christmas theme going into the album, partly because I love me a wintery holiday, but also because I was afraid they would butcher old classics by trying to sound different. As it turned out, when they did revamp old favorites, they did it in a stylish way that was both respectful to our cherished memories of listening to these carols while added a new beachy twist. I don't know how well the album will mix into your regular holiday playlist, but certainly tracks like "Christmas in the Sand" and "Mistletoe" belong in the mix. I'm also sure Florida, California, and all those other palm tree holiday hot spots will have this album in heavy rotation.

HASH(0xa432d1ec) out of 5 stars Classic Christmas Music, Duets, and Four Original Songs Nov. 9 2012
By Coffee Addicted Writer (Billy) - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I wasn't even aware that Colbie Caillat had a Christmas album out until I stumbled upon it at my local Walmart today for ten dollars. Colbie has bubbly music that can cheer me up on a bad day, so I had to buy it.

Colbie sings several classic holiday songs, such as Sliver Bells, Santa Baby, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and Winter Wonderland. There are duets with Brad Paisley, Gavin Degraw, Justin Young, and Jason Reeves. There are four new songs that are catchy, Christmas in the Sand, Every Day is Christmas, Mistletoe and Happy Christmas.

The problem that I have with most modern singers releasing a Christmas album is that they use classic songs that I have heard to death. Don't get me wrong, Colbie sings Silver Bells and the others well, but I would have liked to had more original music besides four songs.

Overall, I enjoyed listening to Christmas in the Sand as Colbie has a great voice.

The Tracks are:

1. Merry Christmas Baby (Feat. Brad Paisley) 3:41

2. Santa Baby - 2:57

3. Christmas in the Sand 3:48

4. Baby It's Cold Outside (Feat. Gavin Degraw)3:20

5. The Christmas Song (Feat. Justin Young) 3:18

6. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town 3:10

7. Every Day is Christmas (Feat. Jason Reeves) 4:25

8. Sliver Bells 3:43

9. Winter Wonderland - 2:50

10. Mistletoe - 3:51

11. Happy Christmas - 3:46

12. Auld Lang Syne 3:46

HASH(0xa432d624) out of 5 stars Good Christmas CD Oct. 29 2012
By B. Olson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I purchased this at Target and got the Deluxe edition. It also includes Mistletoe, Happy Christmas, and Auld Lang Syne. I think it was about $2-$3 more and is worth it. The packaging is different. Blue and beachy. (The Amazon cover pictures is included inside the inserts).
This album is good overall- her sound never changes and that is a good thing. I did not like the Baby It's Cold Outside with Gavin Degraw. I think it seems rushed. Otherwise I do like the overall sound of the album and the rest of the songs seem good.

HASH(0xa432d9e4) out of 5 stars Christmas Sunshine July 25 2013
By Carrie Lynn Frost - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is my "Christmas In Summertime" album - if I may explain:

I have started a tradition of doing my own mini "Christmas in July" because I have realized I am one of THOSE PEOPLE who don't get enough from November until New Years. This album, with its beachy, summery vibe combined with holiday standards, is the perfect background music for the occasion.

Of particular note is "Christmas In The Sand", in which Ms. Callait describes a beach-side encounter with Mr. Claus himself. Standards such as "Santa Baby", "The Christmas Song" and "Baby It's Cold Outside" also get the California Girl treatment.

Check out the liner booklet; you'll see a picture on the back of Ms. Callait frolicking on the beach with Santa and three or four of his elves. Perfect if you really are planning to spend your Yuletide outside on the beach - or just imagine you are.

Recommended. Cheers.

HASH(0xa432d990) out of 5 stars Christmas music with a hint of summer too Dec 10 2013
By Peter Durward Harris - Published on
Format: Audio CD
There are some places in the world where Christmas is celebrated in warm and sunny weather, and Colbie was inspired by Hawaii to include some songs that would appeal to anybody spending Christmas in a warm climate. However, this album contains wintry songs too.

Colbie co-wrote four songs for the album, the other eight being familiar Christmas classics. Of the eight classics, the opening Merry Christmas baby is particularly intersting. Colbie sings it as a duet with Brad Paisley, with them taking turns trading lines, thereby giving a different feel to the song.

Of the four original songs, I love them all but particularly the title track. Colbie's comments inside the album suggest that her favorite tracks are the duets, but I won't argue because I love the whole album. The other originals (Every day is Christmas, Mistletoe, Happy Christmas) are definitely worth a listen.

I don't know anything about Colbie's other music, but I hope to find out one day. Meanwhile, I can enjoy her Christmas album.
