The unfailingly nasal Ms. King continues to sound like a deviated septum hard-wired to a microphone. She looks pretty on the CD cover, her long hair in bouncy, blonde ringlets. Yet I just cannot reconcile her pleasant visage with the ugly sounds that emerge from her mouth. And on some tracks, notably Have Yourself a Merry... and I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm, she comes dangerously close to sounding like Emily Littella, the character that Gilda Radner used to play on Saturday Night Live. With this recording, Carole King achieves the unimaginable: she has made a worse Christmas album than Bob Dylan!
Yikes! Someone should have advised her not to release this CD. It sounds somewhat amateurish, probably because she is losing her voice and has to strain for the high or prolonged notes. Also, some voices don't sound compatible with Christmas music--unfortunately,I think Carole King's is one of them.
