While still a great CD, it doesn't beat the first volume. Of course the songs are a lot more enjoyable while actually watching the kids from Glee perform it on television, but it'll do when you're in that "musical" mode. Which happens to me a lot.
I was mostly disappointed because "Single Ladies" isn't included on the soundtrack. Com'on that was the BEST episode ever!

Being the Beatles fanatic that I am, when I heard they had come out with the remastered copies of this and other Beatles' albums, I knew I was going to have to buy them.
I love The White Album, I only owned a copy of it before I purchased the remastered album and it just wasn't the same. There's something about owning the CD itself and looking at the leaflet inside and displaying it on your shelf.
I just love that.

This is more than a Christmas Album, Tori has dubbed it a solstice album which combines songs from all beliefs and cultures. It's originally Tori. This isn't one of those Christmas albums where the artist's talent is hidden behind cheesy Christmas carols.
This is from the heart and the songs are original scores written by Tori sometimes incorporating parts of familiar Christmas songs such as Noel but with unique and beautiful melodies. This album is addicting and very peaceful, it's been a constant in my house for the holidays.
