Nov 1, 2013Any of these, as well as the retro title track, would make welcome additions to shopping-mall playlists, but it's the album's lead single, "Underneath the Tree," which recalls Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" in theme, tone, and structure, that's likely to become Clarkson's very own contemporary standard.
Nov 1, 2013Maybe Clarkson’s a bit too eager to prove she can still wail out the money notes, and maybe the dearth of edge will disappoint those of us who love “Addicted” and “Hole”. But Wrapped in Red doesn’t need edge; it’s just dynamic and varied enough to be satisfying.
Dec 14, 2013Vocally, Kelly Clarkson never lets you down and this Christmas Album is no exception. Lead single "Underneath the Tree" is a Christmas keeper and "Wrapped in Red" shows a now mature and robust sound. I cannot stop listening to this album and certainly putting me in the X-Mas sprit. Well done Kelly and much success with this. Acrown to your recent marriage and expected baby. Again, well done!!… Expand
Jan 3, 2014Her favorite album, but also one of the best Christmas album ever. Her voice sounds like an angel on Earth bringing peace to everyone. Kelly definitely shows why she is the original American Idol and has the most solid career we've ever seen of one contestant whose won a reality show.… Expand
Nov 8, 2013Kelly's best ever. Reminds us of why we voted for the singer on Idol. Best producers, incredible production, fantastic selection of songs- remaining eclectic while showing renditions of the classics like we've never heard before. Even the original songs sound better than any filler track you'd hear on the standard album. So pleasing. The ruby in Kelly's library.… Expand
Nov 17, 2013Eh, Don't know about this one. In my opinion, she has gotten blander over the years and her voice is not as appealing as it used to be. I know that she will slay this album when she performs it live but I can't listen to this after hearing her other albums.
Summary: Not her best album, Voice is worse, Bland
