Forester Sisters - A Christmas Card
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best Christams C.D. there is. I don't listen to country, although I am not sure the Forester Sisters are country. A friend of mine lent me her cassette tape of them 10 years ago and I fell in love with it. A couple of years later she got me the cassette for Christmas and I have lost it. So here I am buying the CD even after Christmas because I have missed hearing them this year! Buy it you won't be sorry!"
The Holiday Soundtrack
Austin Skinner | South Texas, USA | 11/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having grown up listening to the The Forester Sisters, I must say that their album, "Christmas Card," warms my heart in a cold season. Is it the ladies' voices? Is it the their chemistry? Or is it the intangible, the feeling? At the height of their popularity, The Forester Sisters were a regularity in my household, and in the car. When, "Christmas Card," was released it gave these lovely ladies a whole new perspective to me. When the season rolls around, and the reminiscing begins, as I said, they warm my heart. The Forester Sisters, "Christmas Card," album is my soundtrack to the holidays. Coming from a 20 year old male, I hope my opinion is helpful."
A great Christmas album from the eighties
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 09/08/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Forester sisters made an impact on country music in the late eighties and early nineties, during which they recorded this excellent album. The only original song here is This old white doorway, an interesting song about children growing up.

Three of the others do not appear on many Christmas albums. I first heard An old Christmas card sung by Jim Reeves, but I don't know it's origin. Little toy trains is by Roger Miller. Carol of the bells is a traditional song particularly suited to harmony singing - of the few versions I've come across, this is the best by far.

The remaining songs appear frequently on Christmas albums, but these versions are distinctive because of the four-part harmonies - the four sisters sound like a small choir. The music is kept to a minimum, to emphasise the choral effect.

So, this will appeal to a much broader base than just country fans, as pointed out by an earlier reviewer who loves this despite not liking country music. Indeed, fans looking for traditional country with fiddles and steel guitars may prefer to give this a miss - it's not that kind of album. To them, I recommend Reba's first Christmas album (Merry Christmas to you), which I've also reviewed."
