  • Best Christmas Album

    By OhioJake
    Karen Carpenter's voice is timeless. I listened to this album as a young kid in the 70's, as a college student in the 80's, as a young parent with my kids in the 90's, and still listen to it today. It is the top of my Holiday Playlist with the highest play count. Just can't beat it.
  • A Christmas Masterpiece!

    By media mania
    Standing the test of time is one of the most listenable voices in music with Karen Carpenter. Along with Richard's arrangements and a medley of Holiday favorites comes one of best Christmas Albums of all time. Whether you want to relax and sing along or play it as background music during your holiday activities, this album has a selection and song count more than any other. RIP Karen, knowing that 40+ years after its inception your beautiful voice still soothes our hearts for the holidays!

    Love Christmas music and these favorite musicians of my youth. ❤️
  • The sound of Christmas itself

    By Emamia
    This has been played at every Christmas at my house as long as I can remember. The CD finally broke a couple years ago, so now we have to download it. This will never not sound like Christmas to me.
  • Best Christmas Album Ever !

    By gdby2lv
    It’s like listening to a beautiful Broadway Christmas Show with full backing choir and orchestra. The lead vocals by the late Karen Carpenter are impeccable as are the arrangements by her brother and Peter Knight. A must have for anyone who enjoys Christmas Music at it finest.
  • Amazing

    This is what Christmas sounds like.
  • Best Vocal Rendition of Christmas Classics

    By cookie meister
    Soft relaxed feel of the vocals interspersed with orchestral interludes makes this album just about perfect. The tone is one that shows a certain reverence for the holiday. This album will still be played 50 years from now because it’s timeless.
  • Karen’s Voice will be a Christmas gift 100 years from now!

    Probably one of the most beautiful voices of our time crafting each song so effortlessly and turning them into classics. Karen loved Christmas and it shows with each song. The Holiday Season would not be right without her voice taking you on a Sleigh Ride. Not many voices have touched my heart like hers. You are missed now and forever Karen.
