Album Reviews

Basic Instinct Ciara

Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Glee Cast

A global superstar whose infectious tunes have resulted in charttopping singles, multi-platinum albums and awards aplenty, Ciara is set to impress with her fourth album titled Basic Instinct. Taking it back to the basics and bringing back the bass - music enthusiasts will love the uptempo tunes like Girls Get Your Money, Turn It Up (Heavy Rotation) and Gimme Dat. Ciara knocks the ball out of the park again when she slows it down on these two tracks; Flaws and Speechless.

A Merry Little Christmas Lady Antebellum

There is nothing like a good dose of Glee to spread the Christmas cheer around and with the release of Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album, fans are in for a treat! The album has a total of twelve holiday classics all revamped and spiced up by the amazing talents on Glee. With songs like The Most Wonderful Day Of The Year, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, O Christmas Tree, Angels We Have Heard On High and a very special Dr. Seuss inspired You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch, you will be singing along in no time!

Merry Christmas II You Mariah Carey

Christmas Fever will definitely hit you early with this album by international superstar Mariah Carey! There is something for everyone as this 13tracked album is brimming with Christmas cheer and is bound to stir up your fondest festive memories. In addition to traditional yuletide fare The First Noel, Little Drummer Boy, O Little Town of Bethlehem, O Come All Ye Faithful and more - Merry Christmas II You also have four original songs composed by Mariah, including the new single titled Oh Santa.

One new original song makes it on the album – look out for On This Winter’s Night. A great addition to have if you are already a fan of the group, plus, it makes for a great gift as well!

Christmas Is The Time... (To Say I Love You)

Tron Legacy Soundtrack

Katharine McPhee of American Idol fame shows off her vocal prowess in this beautiful collection of holiday melodies! Elegant and classic, this album is sure to be one of your favourites this season with its blend of traditional Christmas songs as well as other holiday favourites. We love how she put a different spin on Jingle Bells and the last track on the album titled Who Would Imagine A King has been the talk of music lovers all over the globe! Clearly a great choice, this one is an impressive buy.

The two visionary musicians who make up Grammy Award winning Daft Punk, Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo and Thomas Bangalter take on the score for the upcoming movie TRON and does it proud! The French duo not only produced the album, they assembled a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and recorded the orchestra for this soundtrack too. We cannot get enough of the track ‘Derezzed’ which sets the bar pretty high for the remainder of the score - rest assured you will not be disappointed.

Things To Say About A Christmas Gift You Don’t Like

Electric Trains

While working as a mall Santa, I had many children ask for electric trains. “If you get a train,” I would tell each one, “you know your dad is going to want to play with it too. Is that okay?” The usual answer was a quick yes, but after I asked one boy this question, he became very quiet. Trying to move the conversation along, I asked what else he would like Santa to bring him. He promptly replied, “Another train.”

Shopping Early

It was coming up to Christmas and the Judge was in a jolly frame of mind. “Now then, please tell me, what is the charge against you?” “ I was caught doing my Christmas shopping very early.” replied the man in the dock. “That doesn’t seem like an offence to me. What do you mean by very early? “Well, your Honour.” said the defendant, “It was before the shop was open.”
