MARIAH CAREY DOES THE IMPOSSIBLE !!!! MERRY XMAS 2 YOU ALBUM REVIEW


The album starts with a live orchestra on the albums intro song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” then runs straight into the most radio friendly song on the album – “OH SANTA“!!
Oh Santa! by IDRAG

Now, I wasn’t too fancy about this song when I first heard it but I must say it has grown on me tremendously.. this song has a catchy melody that will have you singing along in no time!!

The next song is “O Little Town of Bethlehem and Little Drummer Boy Medley”

O Little Town Of Bethlehem Little Drummer Boy (Medley) by QueenBee73

Now this is definitely one of the stand outs on the album…the way both songs were infused together is unbelievable!!! We all know Little Drummer Boy is a classic Christmas tune on its own but the way this was combined will definitely give you a fresh love for the song all over again!

 The First Noel / Born Is The King (Interlude)  

The First Noel Born Is The King (Interlude) by QueenBee73

Another great medley! On this track Mariah keeps it simple without any excessive vocal runs and acrobtics –  simple but still decent nevertheless!
When Christmas Comes”
When Christmas Comes by QueenBee73

Im not sure yet if this is an original composition or a cover of a Christmas classic but its one of my favorite cuts on the album.. she goes R&B on this .. with the instrumental featuring trumpets and some Christmas sounds – this is a must listen!

“Oh Come All Ye Faithful / Hallelujah Chorus ft Patricia Carey”

Oh Come All Ye Faithful Hallelujah Chrous by QueenBee73

Now onto my favorite song on the album by far…this song is just too amazing to describe with words and Im sure after most of you listen to it you will understand why…. she starts the song slowly with a church choir then the song builds up from one height to another when her mother, Patricia Carey lends her amazing Broadway vocals to the song! The interesting thing is that it works…Mariah and her Mothers voices blend perfectly in what I thought would be impossible before .my favorite part is when she uses her signature whistle register to sing around her he mums middle verse in the song..you just have to listen to the song to understand what I mean.
“One Child

One Child by QueenBee73

This is a very gospel themed Christmas song! Im not sure whether this is an original composition but its a great song and was sung beautifully!

“Auld Lang Syne

Auld Lang Syne – The New Year’s Anthem by QueenBee73

This is a fun song a great album closer!! I must say its the first christmas electro pop song I’ve heard but who is Mariah if she doesn’t start trends right?
Mariah does alot of her signature whistle acrobatics/runs in this song definitely one of the stand outs!!

Overral its was great having Mariah sing in full voice again..its been so long since she did and this album was nothing short of greatness..I honestly think she out did herself with this a definitely did the impossible by topping her first christmas album!
Good Stuff!!


I give the album a rating of  9/10 …MAKE SURE YOU PICK YOUR COPY WHEN IT HITS STORES NOVEMBER 2ND!!
