Synopsis

Amazon.com
Looking for a straight-ahead Christmas record, no gimmicky seasonal songs or original songs trying to sound like classics? Look no further than Martina McBride's White Christmas. It's so completely straight and narrow that the music doesn't even sound country, country-rock, or anything but a very predictable slab of easy-listening pop--strings and all, safe as milk. McBride's not out to sell anything but the songs, all 10 of them, including such staples as "The Christmas Song," "Away in a Manger," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and... you get the idea. Deep? Not particularly. Surprising? You be the judge. McBride's not blessed with a terribly distinctive voice, and the arrangements are more faithful to the original versions than swans who mate for life. --Martin Keller

Good CD, nothing too great. Martina DOES have the best female vocals today

CD Reviews

Straightforward beautiful Christmas Music...
Leslie | SC USA | 12/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was my first Martina McBride CD and I have to say I was much more than pleasantly suprised. A lot of the newer Christmas albums have so many "extras" that they no longer sound like the wonderful yuletide tunes we remember from childhood. Not so with Martina's beautifully done CD (excellent voice!). I heard a cut of "Holy Night" on a local radio station and it brought tears to my eyes! The rest of the album is equally wonderful. This is THE ONE to get you in that "Holiday Spirit"."
Outstanding Christmas Standards

"Are you looking for that ideal Christmas album to bring joy to your world?

Are you tired of listening to singers (who should know better) butchering your favorites?

Does the latest boy band/pop diva/rapper/aging rocker/American Idol commercial album make your yuletide dark?

Now you can have yourself a merry little Christmas with an honest to goodness, warm and scrunchy, feel good, chicken soup for the season album from the cute 'n cuddly Ms. McBride, who puts the country back in Christmas.

An ideal album for trimming the tree, stuffing your goose, wrapping your presents, addressing the Christmas cards, shopping on Amazon, decking the halls, or roasting the chestnuts on an open fire. In fact it goes with everything, unless you want a silent night.

You can close your eyes and buy this one - it completely captures the Christmas spirit and then releases it back to you with love.

Amanda Richards, December 5, 2004"
