This was OK. I was hoping for more, but upon playing it several times, it didn't really grab me. I sent it to my daughter.
One of the best Christmas albums I've ever heard

"And, yes, I've heard quite a few. I don't mind the fact that it's a Jewish man singing Christmas music. And really, why shouldn't a Jewish man sing about the birth of another Jew?
What I like best about this album is that on most of the songs, Neil doesn't jazz it up or anything like that. Now, it's true that he does give that treatment to a few of the songs, but most of them are left intact the way they ought to be. The only ones that experience any major change are "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "White Christmas". His opener, "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel/We Three Kings of Orient Are" is one of the best opening tracks I've ever heard for a Christmas album. It's a beautiful medley complimented with a boys choir.
I highly recommend this CD to any Christmas music enthusiast."
When one hears this, what can one say, but Neil Diamond?

"Personally I love this collection of Christmas music. It was the first compilation of Christmas music I bought as a teenager back in 1992. Actually, my mother bought it and we all got hooked on the music. Neil Diamond just has a way of making Christmas music fun and different. Santa Claus is Coming to Town is an upbeat light rocking song, and then there is O Holy Night. That song is awesome. Almost anyone who sings it earns my affection, but Neil does it really well. To sum up: If you're thinking about buying this CD just BUY IT and stop thinking."
