Pentatonix shines on new holiday album 'That's Christmas To Me' SPECIAL
BY MARKOS PAPADATOS OCT 22, 2014 IN MUSIC
A-capella vocal group Pentatonix
has released their highly-anticipated holiday album "That's Christmas
To Me" and it is sheer perfection.
Just when you thought that
Pentatonix could not possibly top themselves with their EP PTX, Vol.
III, they prove their fans wrong again, with their latest holiday project,
That's Christmas To Me.
It opens with their smooth version of the up-tempo "Hark! The Herald
Angels Sing," which will inspire their listeners to sing along,
and it is followed by the soothing "White Winter Hymnal" and
they take their fans on a ride with "Sleigh Ride," which features
their impressive harmonies.
Their version of "Winter Wonderland" is laid-back and mellow
and they incorporate it with a neat medley of "Don't Worry Be Happy."
The title track is worthy of becoming a single at some point in the
"Mary, Did You Know?" is haunting to the core, while they
change the pace with the fun and upbeat "Dance of the Sugar Plum
Fairy." It's great to hear "It's the Most Wonderful Time of
the Year" with beat-boxing and Pentatonix delivers on this seasonal
classic. "Silent Night" is angelic, and their version of Idina
Menzel's "Let It Go" is an added treat. Menzel would be proud
of their unique twist to her signature song.
Overall, Pentatonix's new holiday album is pure joy and one of the best
projects I've heard this year, along with their latest EP. They never
cease to amaze their listeners. They deserve another round of applause
for a second superb CD. It garners an A rating.
