Album Review

Clay Aiken is a show-biz creature, so it's only appropriate that the sequel to his hit 2003 debut, Measure of a Man, is 2004's Merry Christmas with Love — after all, there are few things quite as show biz as a holiday album. Aiken is a rarity in the new millennium: an old-fashioned, unironic middle-of-the-road singer. Those are the kinds of vocalists that always fare very well on Christmas records, so it should be no surprise that Aiken turns in a good holiday album. Actually, there are no surprises on the album — the song selections are all standards, the arrangements are traditional and unobtrusive, always emphasizing Clay's voice, and the record is given a safe, high-gloss sheen ideal for adult contemporary radio. If there are any surprises with Merry Christmas with Love — well, apart from Clay's impish, elfin look on the front cover — it's that his singing is better, more assured here than it was on Measure of a Man. Then again, that debut was released a little over four months after he came in second on the second season of American Idol. He's had more time to work on Merry Christmas with Love, and it seems to benefit his performance, which bodes well for his second proper studio album.

Customer Reviews

Go Clay Aiken!!!!

My favorite is Mary did you know ( it is so good that you will cry) I love it and you should buy this song in a second!

Mary, Do You Know

Mary, Do You Know takes on a entirely new meaning with Clay performing the lead vocals. The album will definitely get you in the mood for the holidays. Mike Andrews Revel I T U N E S

You Should Hear His Christmas Songs In Person . . .

I am not a fanatic by any means but to hear him belt out some of these songs and hold the notes, which seem forever, if teriffic. Until recently he was touring his specials at local theaters and one perticular show in NYC a few years ago. If you have a chance, try for yourself, it's worth it.
