Holiday Wishes Tracklist:
Strong vocals and dreamy ways with these faves...I’ll never forget listening to it as we drove south on PCH ... ocean on our right, sparkling hills of Laguna Niguel on our left, Dana Point’s Christmas harbor awaiting us. Magical.
Broadway and the kids have had their treats for years, but now it's time for a new adult audience. Enjoy the holiday songs of yesteryear for what they are, wonderful classics, but for quality of voice, performance and recording, Idina (and Michael) blow them away. These recordings are stunning, and I believe that they will stand the test of time in consideration of "classic" status. Do yourself a favor and put this album in your library.
It's interesting... I consider Idina Menzel to be one of the great voices of our time and was expecting perhaps too much from her Christmas CD. Purchased this CD last year and found it to be lacking. Can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something just 'off' with this one. And I'm a Christmas music junkie. Start listening at Thanksgiving and don't quit till Christmas. Almost every time one of her tracks pops up in my Itunes shuffle and end up advancing to the next song.
After a whole year, I'm listening to Idina's beautiful voice on repeat! This album fills my house with beautiful melodies all year round and truly plays an important part of making it a home.
This is perfect! Can't get better! Idina and I are both Jewish but who cares it means I can play this all year and not feel weird! 😜 December Prayer is awesome and Baby It's Cold Outside is just perfection. It's October so only 1 ish month till this becomes my all time jam again!!! #🙌🏻Idina
I fell in love with the Baby It's Cold Outside music video with Michael Buble. I loved everything about it, including the lyric changes. So I bought it. While listening in the car, I quickly realized that they had done two versions of the song and that the cute, innocent lyrics were only for the music video. That was the only reason I had bought it. There are enough covers of the song, so it was nice to hear something different. Needless to say, I'm very disappointed.

MORONS!!!!!!!!! 😡
Hi. Haven't purchased the whole album, only Silent Night. I agree with another reviewer that the humility is missing from this song. Idina is LOUD and grating on this song, and her arrangement moves this song from short and sweet to overlong and repetitious. It just seemed to me that her song glorifies HER not the Savior.
Watching Idina's online virtual Yule Log and listening to her sing her heart out. I love the twists and how she personalizes each song. Saw her at the NYTW in Rent. I remember her walking down the street-noone knew who she was; she would start singing and heads would turn in NYC. Been hooked on her voice and singing ever since. Wonderful holiday tunes!
I am a big fan of Idina Menzel. However, this album is over the top, and not in a good way. It sounds like she is over-singing. I had hoped for some nice background Christmas music. This is too brassy and grating. I would have liked for her to hold back a bit, show more control. I also found the laughing and side talking during a few of the songs to be annoying.
The first time I watched Frozen I thought it was a child singing the song! I had no idea what movie I was going to see as I was at a friends house last Christmas and hadn't even heard of this movie. Then I can't remember what awards show it was I realized she was an adult, and that no matter what she sings she sounds like a child! There is no natural ease to her voice! She stifles her own sound and it grates on my last nerve. If she would just learn the mechanics of performing maybe it wouldn't be so bad. Open your mouth woman and quite stretching your e's sideways! You one look awful and two it sounds horrific! Granted this is simply my personal opinion. Music is wonderful in the fact that to each ear the beauty in the songs are different.
I am so excited that Idina put out this album. You will not be disappointed. This album get you in the holiday spirit in a phenomenal way by one one of the most talented ladies on the planet. Highly recommend!
All I hear is Elphaba singing Christmas music, don't get me wrong I love Idina but I have to be in a certain mood to listen to her music and I don't think I could listen to this for an entire month.
I'm not buying the whole album just because when I listened to it, the songs were not appealing. But I am going to buy "Do you Hear what I hear" because it gives me chills every time I listen to the demo. Love you Idina!
