Kelly Clarkson 'Wrapped In Red' Christmas Album Deluxe Edition Review

Who can believe it's already been two years since her last album 'Stronger'? But Clarkson does not disappoint, by releasing a very special holiday album titled 'Wrapped in Red', just in time for Christmas.

With a combination of original tracks and classics as well as covers, Clarkson's uniquely stunning voice captures the mood in a sublime way, while injecting a sense of her pop style.

1. Wrapped In Red
2. Underneath The Tree
3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
4. Run Run Rudolph
5. Please Come Home For Christmas
6. Every Christmas
7. Blue Christmas
8. Baby It's Cold Outside
9. Winter Dreams
10. White Christmas
11. My Favourite Things
12. 4 Carats
13. Just For Now
14. Silent Night

Deluxe Tracks:

15. I'll Be Home for Christmas
16. Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel

Of her original tracks, 'Wrapped In Red' opens the album in style as a mix of pop catchiness and festive cheer. Though following a typical holiday tune formula, Clarkson makes it work wonders and showcases her immaculate voice. '4 Carats' is an upbeat track with some tongue and cheek which Clarkson has a lot of fun with.

Cleverly choosing tracks to cover that Clarkson can make her own. She does not try to cover songs such as Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas is You' or 'Santa Baby', and the selection of songs are uniquely different and perhaps not everything you'd expect, but surprisingly meaningful.

My favourites include 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas', 'Baby It's Cold Outside', 'White Christmas', 'Silent Night' and 'Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel'.

Overall, this is a long awaited album from Ms Clarkson and it has clearly not been one that has been rushed and just dished out for money. Thought and care has been put into creating this album, with soaring sales (#1 US holiday albums and #3 Billboard 200 so far) cementing this as one modern Christmas album to LOVE.

Move aside Michael Buble, Kelly Clarkson is here.
