Glee Christmas Album Vol 2

Review By Subhadra Devan

The cast of the hit TV show Glee leads the band of Yuletide music this year, writes Subhadra Devan

FANS of the hit TV show Glee, should give Glee: The Music: The Christmas Album Vol.2 a moment of wonder. This album has two originals — Extraordinary Merry Christmas, a dance-pop number, and Christmas Eve With You, a pop-country number

Other songs are Santa Baby in the commercial voice of Naya Rivera (Santana), Let It Snow (a boring duet by Darren Criss (Blaine) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) and a high-schoolish Glee rendition of the Geldof et al’s Do They Know It’s Christmas.

Outstanding are Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas by Amber Riley (Mercedes) because her voice suits the song, and Christmas Wrapping by Heather Morris (Brittany), a rippin’ dance-pop number.

Glee Project’s Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell duet well on Do You Hear What I Hear?, giving it a Broadway sound.

Lea Michele on Joni Mitchell’s River is a big disappointment as she seems to lack vocal depth for the emotion in the song. But kudos for bringing the song, of suffering a loss when others are celebrating, to a new audience.
