Note to Jessica Mauboy: Stop singing Mariah classics!
I love Jessica Mauboy! Her albums are great - HOWEVER, she continually covers Mariah Carey's Christmas classics (as she did here with "All I Want For Christmas Is You"). While she has a great voice, nothing compares to Mariah's supreme vocal abilities. It's great to see that Jess is such a Mariah fan, but hearing her cover the Mariah-written standard just showcases her vocal limitations. That said, don't get me wrong, I still love Jess! Some of the songs on this collection are quite nice - especially Guy Sebastian's "The Christmas Song" (what a talent). However, if you're looking for a Christmas album that you'll be listening to in decades from now - I recommend Mariah Carey's new one "Merry Christmas II You".
Great Australian Talent.
This is a really great album. It's mix of old and up-coming Australian musicians is great and the quality of all the songs is amazing.
The stand out for me would have to be 'O Holy Night' by Michael Paynter. He gives it a really contemporary feel, while staying true to the song. Also, 'Angel' by Straalen McCallum is great, considering he is only 12 years old.
And the old favourites are not to be forgotten. John Farnham, Human nature, Kate Ceberano and David Campbell all deliver.
All in all a great album. :)
Very good album
Last year I decided to buy an Australian Christmas album each year. Unfortunately, last year's wasnt that great. However, I am very pleased to report that this album is brilliant!! Despite listening to it about 30 times and counting so far (its playing in my shop!), I still love it! Standouts for me are Stan Walker's Little Drummer Boy - such a cool twist on this song - and Michael Paynter - O Holy Night is absolutely fantastic. It actually gives me goosebumps. John Farnham's One Little Christmas Tree is such a cute song. I could keep going and make a positive comment about each song! Totally love it. I definitely recommend this album.
