Album of the Day
Christmas (Deluxe Special Edition)
“Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year for me and my family so naturally it's been a dream of mine to make the 'ultimate' Christmas record,” explained Michael Bublé, and with this 2011 set, he succeeded. There's a little something for everyone on CHRISTMAS, from high-wattage duets (“White Christmas,” with Shania Twain) to traditional favorites both brash (“Holly Jolly Christmas”) and gentle (“Silent Night”) to a new song (“Cold December Night”). The collection topped the Billboard chart for five weeks, racking up triple-platinum sales (and an Album of the Year nod at the Juno Awards in the vocalist's native Canada). Carefully arranged and beautifully sung, this is one of the most satisfying holiday albums of recent years, and the Deluxe Special Edition of CHRISTMAS adds four bonus tracks including performances of “Frosty The Snowman” with the Puppini Sisters and “Silver Bells” with Naturally 7.
