Christmas with Babyface

Christmas with Babyface

by Babyface

Overview

Babyface had long demonstrated a talent for smooth, seductive, laid-back contemporary soul before he recorded his holiday album, Christmas with Babyface. Those years he spent perfecting his style were put to good use -- not only did he turn into a reliable hitmaker, but he developed an alluring, mellow sound that appealed to all generations of listeners, which is exactly what is needed for a successful holiday album. And Christmas with Babyface is exactly that -- a warm, friendly, and inviting holiday record, with enough soul for younger listeners and enough style for old folks. It may not be a classic, but it is a lovely record ideal for romantic winter nights or relaxed holiday parties.
