Air Supply is known worldwide for swooning the ladies off their feet. This time, Hitchcock and Russell are taking the festive route, recording some of the most beloved holiday classics of all time. The production standards and performances are polished and no less than what you'd expect from the duo, but of course this will not appeal to some. It's an easily accessible and enjoyable album for both casual listeners and die-hard fans of the group's output.

Pop, New Age, World Fusion, Holidays | 1:11:34 | Mp3, 320 kbps | 163 MB
Label :Windham Hill Records | Year Of Release :1996

This is a more obvious and typically new age instrumental collection from such usual Windham Hill artists as George Winston, Michael Manring, Liz Story, and Michael Hedges. Alternating between keyboard and guitar-dominated washes of lush but well-crafted, rarely schmaltzy arrangements. Richard Stoltzman's marimba and clarinet-driven "Dona Nobis Pacem" stands out.

Pop Christmas songs are generally written out of a kind of deliberate nostalgia, appealing to the perceived listener's yearning for a gentler, simpler time when the holiday wasn't besieged by a blitz of ads, airport schedules, and credit card statements, a time when a gentle snowfall, some roasted chestnuts, and a sleigh ride were more than enough for a perfect holiday. The sort of instant nostalgia that is built into the DNA of songs like "White Christmas," "Jingle Bells," and countless other Christmas classics, coupled with the fact that they only appear on the airwaves in the holiday season, giving each listener ample opportunity to add on his own personal memories of past holidays to the song's cache, makes it especially difficult to drastically alter the arrangements of these treasured perennials without sounding glib or gimmicky. Christmas Remixed, Vol. 2, like its predecessor, manages to respectfully recast a dozen of these holiday classics as beat-heavy electronica without destroying much or any of the songs' built-in nostalgia, which is a feat by any measure.

Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman sweeten the Christmas festival with their magical duet "Somethin 'Stupid", and Barry Manilow shows off with his medley "Joy To The World" from his successful swing album Swing in everyone's mouth and Christmas is not to be thought away. Wonderful Christmas - Swing Edition: The perfect soundtrack for a peaceful and peaceful celebration with a certain momentum. Tracks such as "Winter Wonderland", "Mistletoe and Holy", "Frosty The Snowman", "Christmas in New Orleans", "Santa Baby" or "Santa Claus is Coming To Town" put us immediately into the time of tuxedo and fly Men as well as the era of ladies in the elegant little black.

An entry for the 2003 Christmas season was a natural move for Kenny Chesney after the blockbuster No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems made 2002 his banner year. But in typical Chesney fashion, his holiday album tries to be a little more easygoing than the usual Music City rehash of tried 'n' true yuletide chestnuts. The sunny south of the border vibe that lit up the video for No Shirt's title cut is alive and well on All I Want for Christmas Is a Real Good Tan; the album's own title track is a nice, swaying number that approximates the Cascades' "Rhythm of the Rain" into its breezy Buffett feel. Like Chesney's best material, it's a contemporary country number crossed…

A Christmas Cornucopia is the fifth studio album by the Scottish singer-songwriter Annie Lennox, released in November 2010. It was Lennox's first album after signing to the Universal Music Group following her departure from Sony BMG, which had been her label for almost 30 years. It was also her second cover album (after 1995's Medusa) and her first of holiday music. Lennox was also born on Christmas Day. The album is a collection of Lennox's favourite Christmas songs, though includes one original track written by Lennox, "Universal Child"…

For most artists recording a Christmas record is a convenient stop-gap in between releasing new material. In Peter Cetera's case this doesn't ring true as it has been a while since we last heard from one of soft rock's most distinctive crooners. You Just Gotta Love Christmas brings to the table everything you'd expect from a Peter Cetera record: lush, pleasant arrangements with crisp, warm, polished production and able musicanship from a crew of veteran session players. It's a mix of holiday favorites mixed in with a few originals and some guest appearances from Alison Krauss and Peter's daughter Claire; who is more than up to the task of singing with her father on two of the album's 12 tracks. Cetera and Chicago fans will no doubt enjoy having this on in the background during the holidays.
