Happy Xmas

This Christmas CD is not a typical merry and bright compilation of music. It does however have the signature bluesy sound of Eric Clapton with some rock and one very odd techno ditty. If you are looking for some music to get you in the Christmas spirit this may not be for you as the overwhelmingly amount of slow songs far outweigh the faster upbeat tempos.   There are however some classic songs on this CD that keep it from being a complete flop. Clapton’s renditions of “White Xmas”, “Silent Night”, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas” are beautifully done. “Home for the Holidays” and “It’s Xmas” are also two catchy tunes to try to bring on some Christmas cheer. Clapton throws a little techno into the CD with his “Jingle Bells” rendition which seemed extremely odd to me. If you love the blues then you will love tracks 8, 11, and 13. These songs embody the spirit of Clapton and even got me at times to tap my toes. Overall, this would not be a go-to CD for me to enjoy some Christmas songs as I have learned that I much prefer the classics, but if you are a true fan of Eric Clapton, then you might just enjoy his take on Christmas music. Overall rating: C
