It is rare for us to write a review for an album similar to this. However, seeing as it is the holiday season and everyone is in the spirit of feel-good, we figured, why not?
The album’ Christmas with Cliff’ does not break new ground by reworking or altering all of the original pieces. But, it brings a fresh allure to the already excellent recordings we have heard. Furthermore, the first track, ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’, envelops us in a newly discovered warmth while Cliff charms us with his undying magnetism.
When transitioning into ‘Sleigh Ride,’ the overture begins with a little turn. However, it quickly heads back into normal terrain, with the groove from the original leading us on a journey. ‘Jingle Bell Rock’, which comes five tracks into the album. It has a pop feel reminiscent of the 1980s and surprised us with its presence.
The album ventures into many realms, providing peaceful and relaxing melodies that emanate from the speakers and feel-good foot-tapping grooves and hooks that fill us with a sense of optimism and enthusiasm. So much so one may say that listening to the album is like going on an emotional rollercoaster ride.
