I’ll Be Home For Christmas
Reviewed by: Rebecca Robinson
Epic Records has released it’s first compilation holiday album, I’ll Be Home For Christmas. With songs from Fifth Harmony, Meghan Trainor, Fiona Apple, Tamar Braxton, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson and A Great Big World, the seven song album offers a surprising range of holiday moods.
The majority of the songs feature huskier female vocals that are well suited to the melodies, creating a beautiful listening experience. The children’s songs on the album, “Frosty the Snowman” (performed by Fiona Apple) and “I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas” (by A Great Big World) are given an almost vintage sound, transporting listeners back to their own childhoods.
I’ll Be Home For Christmas, with Trainor nailing the title track, is a perfect album to put on rotation with your other favorite holiday albums for decorating the house this season.
