    This is Christmas music that can be enjoyed by those who otherwise loathe it.

    The dark songster offers a bright disc full of pudding-rich arrangements and a number of worthy soul hits--just with a little more twinkly tambourine.

    Cee Lo openly parades his retro tastes, but his outrageous personality invests them with a contemporary edge.

    Magic Moment easily meets the primary requirement of any Christmas album, which is that it's a worthwhile addition to his fans' collections.

    Magic Moment nearly works, but not quite: further proof, should you need it, that making a Christmas record is tougher than you might think.

    There is a lot of loud, full-bore belting. It's a little showboaty and on occasion his voice threatens to overpower the song itself.... Still, not a note of Magic Moment rings false.

    For folks who love Cee-Lo as a television personality and/or demand new renditions of songs we've all heard thousands of times over, Cee-Lo's Magic Moment exists. For everyone else... well, there's probably copies of Cee-Lo Green…Is the Soul Machine lying around somewhere out there.

    I enjoy Cee-Lo Green very much, but this is not a good album by any stretch of the imagination. He is capable of doing so much better and has disappointed me. Next time, I expect better. Collapse
