EDITORS’ NOTES

One of this album's many joyous highlights is the awesome cover of Frank Loesser’s “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” – an endearingly sweet duet performed by Chris Colfer’s character Kurt and his openly gay love interest Blaine (played by Darren Criss). Another change here is that Rachel (Lea Michele) steps a bit out of the spotlight to let the other cast members shine more (though her breathy take on the Carpenters’ “Merry Christmas Darling” is quite charming). Amber Riley’s Mercedes gives “Angels We Have Heard On High” a joyously soulful R&B makeover with beautiful backing gospel singers and a command solo performance. The kids also give “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” a splash of Broadway inspired pizzazz, while the more traditional “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” reveals that they can easily hold their own as an a cappella act.

Slightly Disappointed

I am a huge Glee fan, but I am a bit disappointed that there aren't any more lively Christmas sings on this album. After the first two songs it gets pretty dreary!!
