10 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Mariah Carey’s collection of soulful, seasonal pop is filled with Motown-flavoured standards, playful R&B and choir-backed gospel ballads. Carey co-wrote the album’s centrepiece, “All I Want for Christmas is You”, with longtime collaborator Walter Afanasieff, whose production uses a prancing beat, jangling sleigh bells and sugar-sweet harmonies to evoke the feel of 1963’s A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector.

Absolute Classic

Great vocals and a real Christmas feel. You won't be disappointed. All I want for Christmas is great but there's so much more on the album that's equally as great!

A masterpiece, classic Christmas album.

The album which has sold 15 million copies since its release and spawned the biggest selling Christmas single of the modern era. The angelic 8 octave voice of Mariah Carey shines on these classic and newly penned tracks of festivity. A must have collection of songs.
