Voice of an angel
As always, Dolly sings these songs wonderfully. It's a great album and a "must" for Christmas!
I LOVE DOLLY!
I live where she was born, and i love her voice! she's a mountain girl just like me, I LOVE this album.
I love this album because she puts so much of her own expression into every song, while still managing to keep the authenticity of each song. Every year after Thanksgiving my mom would pull out all our Christmas tapes and CD's and Dolly's was my absolute favorite. When I hear this album, it makes me smile and reminds me of driving around town in the snow, looking at Christmas lights, and listening to Dolly Parton's Christmas album with my family. I love it!
Home For Christmas
By a song 4u
This second holiday cd from Dolly isn't bad really, instead of writing and producing originals like her first holiday offering featuring Kenny Rogers Dolly chooses traditional songs and injects some personal thoughts into the songs and her spoken words tend to sound a bit like "sermonetts." Indeed this may have been intended as a concept album of sorts given the album title since Dolly is from a small town and the opening lines of the first song features a pastor instructing his congregation to open their hymnals. There is some slickness to the production and the "twang" turned down a bit but this cd is still enjoyable. My personal favorite is "We Three Kings" featuing keyboards and Banjo, but listen for a Dulcimer.
