This is an excellent collection of Christmas music by Michael Buble. My favorite track is "Cold December Night". This is a new song. I like the romantic sentiment of this song. "White Christmas" has a slight doo wop tone in the background. This song is a duet with Shania Twain. Her voice is lovely. It is good to hear her singing again. Michael delivers the best version of "Frosty The Snowman" I have ever heard. This song is very upbeat. I love the musical arrangements on this track. The saxophone playing is superb. Michael croons the standard "Silver Bells". This song puts me in the Christmas spirit. "Feliz Navidad" is partly a Spainish duet with a singer named Thalia. This song proves that Buble can sing beautifully in any language with any singer. "Santa Baby" is a classic tune with Buble's unique spin. This song has an unique male perspective. Mike sings about all the things a man would like to receive for Christmas like a car and some cash. "Jingle Bells" is a delightful duet with the Puppini sisters. "Blue Christmas" is a song performed in a bluesy style. I love the clarinet and horns featured on this track. "Ave Maria" is a standard Christmas song. Buble's vocals are moving on this song to me, even though I don't understand a single word of this song. "Holly Jolly Christmas" is a song that simply makes me happy. I love the light breezy tone of this song very much. This is an entertaining disc of Christmas music.
