Merry Christmas Review

by Roch Parisien

Mariah Carey's first holiday-themed album, 1994's Merry Christmas, featured a gospel-tinged "O Holy Night" and a dance club take on "Joy to the World." However, it is perhaps best remembered for her co-penned hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You," a well-crafted Phil Spector tribute, with Beach Boys-style harmonies, jangling bells, and a sleigh-ride pace.
