I ordered a copy of the holiday album off Amazon this weekend. Looking forward to hearing it, as I'm now ready for my holiday music.

I picked it up yesterday with a gift card I forgot still had money on it. I immediately hated the first song and then didn't get to listen to the rest yet. The reason I didn't like the first song is because she's doing that weird and increasingly annoying thing where she doesn't pronounce the words right, doing that vocal manipulation of the words that drives me freaking crazy. Why can't she just SING normally with her beautiful voice? I've read consistently great reviews so hopefully I'll like the rest of it or at least a lot of it. The artwork is, again, horrendous.

And I guess I'm kind of in a bad mood today, lol.

Star Of Wonder and A Silent Night With You are my faves so far.

Christmas tunes aren't really my thing.

I know, right? I'll kick myself forever for not going to the brisbane show....I suspect some of my faves will get played. I do hope she comes back!

I'm on track 8 and so far nothing I really ever want to listen to again.

Holiday music, blah.

I love Tori but I'll skip this one, I think. The only Christmas song for me is The Pogues' Fairytale of New York

That's the one! I listen to it every year. I also love Tori's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas which is truly moving but there's nothing on this record anywhere near that good, imo. The vocals aren't very strong either. I'm genuinely surprised by the ecstatic reviews. But it's mostly that Christmas music in general is boring to me except for certain classical pieces.

Now I feel bad that I came on here and said how great everyone thought it was. I'm sorry if I convinced people to buy a crappy record.

As a collector, I'll still probably be picking it up.

And for my money, "Christmas in Hollis" by Run DMC is the best holiday song ever written. I'm also partial to "Last Christmas" as covered by James Dean Bradfield of the Manics.

I read a lot of fan reviews that began with, "I was skeptical at first..." but then they really loved it. I thought, well, that sounds like me - very skeptical so maybe I'll like it. And you might really like it! Don't feel bad. I'm a collector, too. And it was free with a gift card I had.

Well, I'm glad you were able to pick it up with a gift card. My birthday is this Saturday, so I'm waiting for b-day money before picking it up. It is definitely at the bottom of my list of CDs to get, though, knowing that you don't care much for it. I'm not a huge holiday person anyway (music or otherwise), so I have no idea what I'll think of it.

I've been listening to Scarlet's Walk lately and I think I've been too harsh to it in the past. I still think it could easily lose 2-3 tracks, but overall I'm finding it really enjoyable. Funny how your feelings change like that

Not gonna lie - I really like the holiday CD, except for maybe 3 tracks.

Yay - I always thought everyone should like it as much as HeartlandGirl and I do. Could definitely lose 2-3 tracks but overall it's solid and flows really well.

It's been playing very softly in the background in my car for the last week and I keep hearing little things I like especially during the second half. So as usual, it's not a good idea for me to post opinions after one listen, lol. It's still not going to get much play in my house but it's better than I thought at first.

If I remember correctly -- after one listen AND when you're in a bad mood!
