Falling somewhere between Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas and Kelly Clarkson's Wrapped in Red, A Tori Kelly Christmas is pure comfort and joy for the holiday season. Injecting warmth with R&B and soul, producer Babyface assists Kelly in updating timeless standards such as "Silent Night," "Joy to the World/Joyful, Joyful," and "O Holy Night," while offering new additions to the Christmas catalog with the jazzy "25th" and "Gift That Keeps on Giving." He even lends his smooth vocals to an appropriately jaunty take on "Let It Snow." More modern classics from Donny Hathaway ("This Christmas") and Mariah Carey ("All I Want for Christmas Is You") are also featured. © Neil Z. Yeung /TiVo

Ambient/New Age - Released October 28, 2016 | Capitol Records

Re-teaming with Don Was and Jacknife Lee, the pair who produced his 2014 album Melody Road, Neil Diamond cut Acoustic Christmas, his fourth holiday album and first since 2009's A Cherry Cherry Christmas. The title Acoustic Christmas suggests that this 2016 LP will be sparse, but it's hazy and open, consisting of much more than a man and a guitar. Usually he's supported by a full band -- a rhythm section, another guitarist, a keyboardist, and backing vocalists -- and that gives Acoustic Christmas some spunk, which is enough to keep things lively. If Diamond isn't always original -- his version of "Children Go Where I Send Thee" follows the contours of Nick Lowe's 2013 version exactly -- he nevertheless performs with gusto, particularly on the closing "Christmas Medley." That showmanship is ultimately what gives Acoustic Christmas its personality and is the reason to return to the record: it may not align with the spirit of the season, but it's charming nonetheless. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Ambient/New Age - Released January 1, 2012 | Capitol Records

This mid-priced title draws upon the two volumes of Christmas with the Chipmunks, which were issued in the early '60s and quickly became seasonal traditions for kids of all ages, although in the wake of Beatlemania many thought that the Chipmunks were a clever rodent-related rip on the Fab Four. In reality, the name was actually suggested by the children of multimedia mastermind Ross Bagdasarian. In fact, the moniker dated back to his 1958 hit novelty platter, "Witch Doctor." Although fictitious, the names of the primary characters, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore, were a nod to Liberty Records higher-ups Al Bennett (Alvin) and Si Waronker (Simon) as well as the label's sound engineer, Ted Keep (Theodore). These three typical adolescent vermin were cared for by the bachelor/father human personality named Dave Seville. The concept even spawned a weekly prime-time animated television program called The Alvin Show, which aired from October 14, 1961, through September 12, 1962, on CBS-TV. In terms of musicality, the vari-speed manipulated recording may seem a tad trite (or exceedingly nerve-grating) to modern listeners. However, what better way to introduce the joys of traditional holiday music than with an infectiously funny and at times simply silly trio of highly identifiable icons, who are also a child's emotional and psychological peers. A cursory glance at the track listing reveals a host of familiar favorites such as "Deck the Halls," "Up on the House-Top," "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town," "All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)," and Bagdasarian's "Wonderful Day," as well as the one that started it all, "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)." © Lindsay Planer /TiVo
