Josh Groban – “Noel” MAG

By Abby Wallace, Hockessin, DE

Josh Groban hit it big with his single “You Raise Me Up” and has done it again with his new CD, “Noel,” which shines a new light on Christmas favorites. Groban includes classics like “Silent Night” and “O Come All Ye Faithful,” as well as new hits like “Thankful.” This album had been long awaited and flew off shelves ­immediately.

The way Groban portrays the ­traditional songs shows a lot about him. His deep voice adds life and makes young and old fall in love with these timeless classics. My favorite song of all time is brought to life: “Angels We Have Heard On High” is an all-time favorite.

For those who love carols, this is a must-have CD. Bring a new flair to the classic Christmas tradition by adding this heartwarming CD to your ­collection. I promise it will be worth your money.

This is one of my favorite Christmas albums. However, the duet with Faith Hill on "The First Noel" left me unsatisfied, no offense to Ms. Hill but her vocals are not nearly as strong as Josh's. I think a better pick, as far as female country artists go, would have been Trisha Yearwood. Her vocals are very powerful and she has excellent range, I think it would have been a better match. Very good, if brief review, keep writing.-Alice

Short and to the point, which I like. My favorite Josh Groban songs are "Vincent," "Mi Mancherai," "Mai," "In her eyes," "Let me fall," "Oceano,"... The list goes on and on!!!
