Album Review

Faith Hill's holiday album Joy to the World is a proudly old-fashioned record — almost too much so, really, as there is nothing surprising about it, from its collection of shopworn standards to the full-blown yet curiously stiff production. Basically, this is an album where if you read the title, you will know how the song will sound: "Joy to the World" gets a big, bombastic, orchestral arrangement appropriate for a concert recital, "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" swings like Sinatra conducted by Billy May, "Little Drummer Boy" is prim and proper, "Holly Jolly Christmas" feels pulled from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, "Away in a Manger" is sweet and stately. Everything is business as usual, right down to Hill's performances: big, not blustery; they're immaculate theater, sometimes verging on grandstanding but often suited for the occasion. Which might not make Joy to the World a singular holiday album in any respect — it's too pat and perfect to be memorable — but for anybody looking for a new old-fashioned Christmas album, this suits the bill just fine.

Customer Reviews


All the songs are done beautifully. Her voice is powerful and you can tell the songs are sung with passion and conviction. A choir is used in some songs which adds to the beauty and integrity of the Christmas music.


These songs are perfect! Not to old, not to new, all
The best of the traditional hits. Faith Hills voice makes it even sweeter!


A perfect album gentle enough for my toddler. :) A great to get in the holiday spirit. πŸ‘ΌπŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸ˜‡β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘


Born: September 21, 1967 in Jackson, MS

Genre: Country

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

One of the biggest female country stars of the '90s and 2000s, Faith Hill also took advantage of the inroads Shania Twain made into pop territory, becoming an enormous crossover success by the end of the millennium. Of course, Hill's movie star good looks certainly helped her cause, and her much-celebrated marriage to fellow country star Tim McGraw gave her career an extra kick of glamour and mystique. Hill may not have appealed to country purists, but she had the star power of a diva even before...
