It’s the most magical time of year and that means Christmas music! Martina McBride just released “It’s the Holiday Season” and I’ve got the scoop.
The nine track holiday album starts off with “Santa Claus is coming to town”. It sounds just like the familiar tune that we hear this time of year. A matter of fact, there are no new songs on this album, each and everyone of them are a remake. You can literally sing along to this entire album. I found it to be rather monotonous with a slow tempo.
I had read that she was using 40 plus world-class musicians on this album. I however, didn’t hear anything other than Martina on Winter Wonderland, Home for the Holidays, Most Wonderful Time of the Year, It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas and the rest of the songs.
My overall consensus: if you like Martina McBride and classic Christmas music, you will enjoy this music. However, if you love Christmas music and you want something a little more upbeat or original…. look elsewhere.
