Susan Boyle

The Gift

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: The first half is a sick cover record (“Perfect Day,” “Hallelujah,” “Don’t Dream It’s Over”), and the second half is a dreamy, Christmas altar in Krispy Kreme.

Free Association: SuBo will not stop until all the world’s been weirded out by her supervoice.

For Fans Of: DVD box sets of American Idol, X-Factor, and America’s Got Talent.

Annie Lenox

A Christmas Cornucopia

(Decca)

Sounds Like: A very serious, churchy collection of traditionals where 
the Diva herself slays every vocal over complexly composed world-flavored instrumentals.

Free Association: She’s a Christmas baby, and obviously loves Christ, so this works out!

For Fans Of: Androgyny, boas, the King of Israel, frankincense, myrrh.

Glee: The Music

The Christmas Album

(Columbia)

Sounds Like: Twelve of the greatest hits done by the obnoxious Glee kids; schmaltzy productions with their mediocre voices and cheesy personages.

Free Association: Kurt and Blaine duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Now that’s gay!

For Fans Of: Broadway tickets, slurpees, track suits, Karaoke Revolution.

Mariah Carey
