"I didn't pick up George Strait's second Christmas outing until this year when it was consigned to the budget bin. I had read too many negative reviews from the music experts. Well my faith has been restored and in fact I enjoy this outing better than "Merry Christmas Strait to You". The main reason? George's voice. On his first holiday release he hadn't yet developed his wonderful mature singing style - the relaxed sound and confident phrasing. He has turned into one of the most gifted vocalists in the business. He makes it sound effortless.

Also the material on this outing is for the most part superior to the songs on his first outing. "I Know What I Want for Christmas" is an easy going country-swing number that recalls his recent hit "Go On". "Old Time Christmas" and "Santa's On His Way" both recapture the sweet innocence of Christmas as viewed through the eyes of youth. Another reason I had steered clear of this outing was the inclusion of "All I Want for Christmas" - "uh oh" - but George presents it in a very straight forward "swing" style and it works beautifully. "Let It Snow" and "The Christmas Song" are both presented in warm arrangements and George's voice and phrasing are perfect. While there's nothing very special in the versions of "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Rudolph" presented here they are certainly listenable enough. The only track I could do without is "Noel Leon" which doesn't fit the with mood or feeling of the rest of the outing. It won't have me jumping to hit the skip button but maybe another original or traditional cover might have been a better choice.

Still, all in all an excellent release from Strait and now, at budget price, a painless purchase."

"All I can say is WOW!!! George has put another great CD out, in this case a christmas one. Christmas, "Where Ever You Are" is a song about a man who misses his woman who apparently left him at Christmas Time. The song "Old Time Christmas" will make your heart warm. Just think of the memories of past christmas celebrations. George brings a warmth to the Holidays with his second collection of Christmas Hits! You won't be dissappointed. A must buy! Thanks George."
