Album Review

Air Supply is known worldwide for swooning the ladies off their feet. This time, Hitchcock and Russell are taking the festive route, recording some of the most beloved holiday classics of all time. The production standards and performances are polished and no less than what you'd expect from the duo, but of course this will not appeal to some. It's an easily accessible and enjoyable album for both casual listeners and die-hard fans of the group's output.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful!

Air Supply does such wonderful versions of these Christmas carols. They were made for this kind of stuff. Air Supply fans, you have to buy this album!

Fun!

Air Supply took a break after releasing this album, Russell Hitchcock would release a solo album and score a minor hit with his cover of "What Becomes Of The Broken-Hearted." Usually the last lp before a split is sad or dark, but this lp is so joyful it must have been a feeling of relief that a hiatus is coming. Recorded at the end of the 80's and being an Air Supply album, keyboards and synths are traded for traditional arrangements with full orchestra. The production for this album was so large it had to be recorded at A&M studios. The song choice and arrangements are traditional and the lp features two originals, "The Eyes of A Child," which was culled as a single and a minor hit, and "Love Is All." Both originals were recorded and arranged in typical Air Supply fashion dripping with strings. All the cuts are studio, why "White Christmas" is indicated as "live" is beyond me, unless iTunes is trying to indicate that the song was recorded "live" in the studio, meaning the vocals and strings were recorded at the same time, which is true. Air Supply rarely did covers and hearing Russell Hitchcock work his tenor around holiday standards may feel a bit ackward at first and the two originals provide "relief" from a straight-forward Christmas album but after a few listens this lp is old fashioned, well produced, and timeless.

One of the BEST holiday albums of all time

An exceptional holiday album from this great pop duo. Both Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell are in fine voice. The traditional holiday classics chosen for this album are done with flair and style and sound fresh and vibrant. But the real gems are the two new songs, The Eyes of a Child and Love is All, both of which rank among Air Supply's best all time recordings.

With their heavily orchestrated, sweet ballads, the Australian soft rock group Air Supply became a staple of early-'80s radio, scoring a string of seven straight Top Five singles. Air Supply, for most intents and purposes, was the duo of vocalists Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell; other members came through the group over the years, yet they only functioned as backing musicians and added little to the group's sound. Hitchcock and Russell met while performing in a Sydney, Australia, production...
