Mariah Carey
“Pretensions to high opera on O Holy Night and a horrid danceclub take on Joy to the World. On the positive side, her co-penned (one of three) All I Want for Christmas Is You is a well-crafted Phil Spector tribute, with Beach Boys-style harmonies, jangling bells, and sleigh-ride pace, injecting one of the few bits of exuberant fun in this otherwise vanilla set” (Parisien).
