    What is the point of this album?

    It has already been done a countless number of times by better crooners than tired old Rod.

    You know an artist is over the hill when he records Xmas album, November 7, 2012

    Nothing shouts “I am no longer relevant” than a musician who records a Christmas album. Not a fun, knock-off, but a “serious” effort to make Christmas music. Poor Rod. All he’s got left to do is count is money and make whoopee with his (much) younger wife.

    What’s next, a Valentine’s love songs album, patriotic Fourth of July songs (for Americans — I know Rod’s a Brit), scary songs for Halloween? The career is over, my man. Fade from the scene with some grace.

    I’ve been waiting for Rod Stewart to record a Christmas album for years. With a voice that’s as warm as a cup of hot chocolate, I knew it would be terrific. Now that it’s here, is it? For the most part, yes. Rod’s in good voice, the arrangements are beautiful and there are a handful of special guests to keep things interesting.

    David Foster produced this album, and it sounds great. That said, many of the arrangements – which are beautiful – are extremely mellow. Where the album really shines is the more upbeat tracks, such as “Merry Christmas, Baby” with Cee-Lo Green and “Red-Suited Super Man.” These two songs allow Rod to let loose and show off his soulful side. I also liked how “Auld Lang Syne” featured bagpipes and “Silent Night” included a children’s choir to liven things up.

    Overall, this is an enjoyable Christmas album that features an interesting mix of songs and special guests. If you’re a Rod Stewart fan looking for a great way to kick off the holiday season, you’ll be pleased with Merry Christmas, Baby.
