AllMusic Review by

Pretensions to high opera on "O Holy Night" and a horrid dance club take on "Joy to the World." On the positive side, her co-penned (one of three) "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is a well-crafted Phil Spector tribute, with Beach Boys-style harmonies, jangling bells, and a sleigh-ride pace, injecting one of the few bits of exuberant fun in this otherwise vanilla set.
