Country Christmas at its Best

"I haven't heard Reba's new Christmas album yet, but comparing her recent work to the releases from her heydays, I'm leery of that effort.However, this one is truly a keeper! Reba's powerful voice does justice to the Yuletide classics included here, and in this politically correct era that uses "holiday" rather than "Christmas," she nobly sings some of the most religious standards like "Away in the Manger," "O Holy Night," and "Silent Night."It always nice to hear a new or at least little-known Christmas carol, and Reba choose a few gems from this category. "On this Day" and "Happy Birthday Jesus" are both moving songs that convey the appropriate respect and spirit. "A Christmas Letter" is a touching tale of a letter FROM Santa Clause that forces us to face some unhappy realities at this time of year. Reba's version is salutary, but I, personally, prefer the late Keith Whitley's interpretation. She also remakes Grandpa Jones' recitation "The Christmas Guest" and that uplifting story is always welcome.Some have faulted her uptempo rendition of "I'll Be Home For Christmas," but this non-threatening anomaly seems to be a felicitous performance on an overall strong collection.Give it a listen, and have a Merry Christmas!"
BEST CHRISTMAS ALBUM BY FAR
