Todays Christian Music powered by CCM Magazine gives Merry Christmas II You 5 Stars!
Merry Christmas II You - 5 Stars
Encompassing her soulful vocal inflections with shimmering strings ("Christmastime is in the Air Again"), ornate orchestral arrangements ("One Child"), let-loose Gospel choruses ("O Holy Night") and glitzy programmed party-pop ("Oh Santa!"), the gazillion-selling songstress puts her sequel stamp on the holidays, faithfully following 1994's classic, Merry Christmas. And though her multi-octave licks complement Christmastime fluently, it is II's simpler articulations that crown these holiday veneers best. Pop fan or not, Carey is dazzling December fare.
