Album Review

As a latter-day holiday album from Kenny Rogers, The Gift isn't half bad, thanks to the professional production and Rogers' honeyed voice, but it does suffer from uneven material and the occasional indifferent performance. There are enough good moments here to make it worthwhile for hardcore Kenny fans, but not enough to make it of interest to less dedicated listeners.

Customer Reviews

My favorite Christmas Album

Kenny Rogers is really a gift, along with this album. "Mary, Did You Know", with Wynonna, and "It's the Messiah" are my absolute favorites. Kenny Rogers just has an awesome voice -- one of those that anyone, regardless of preferred music genre, can enjoy. He has had a stellar and best-selling career, and this album is an exclamation point on his library of great songs!

Thank you Kenny!

But superstardom lay ahead for this Texan, and it arrived in the late '70s. His experience with the two previous pop groups had prepared him well: he knew the easy listening audience was out there, and he supplied...
