1stly, many posters commented Christian sounds like Carl. To my ears, he doesn't.

I agree with you, Christian sounds like he's related to Carl, but he doesn't sound just like him. In fact, I'd go even further and say that Christian's sister Hayleigh sounds more like Carl, in terms of intonation and emotion. She is an excellent singer, in my book.

"Jingle Bell Rock" is best by Randy Travis, no contest.

Yes, ma'am -- I agree 100% with that assessment!

Only two more days before I can finally give the album a listen. I am patient.  Grin
Wow, you know Randy Travis? I didn't see anybody here mention him, thus figured he isn't famous country singer in the States. Really cool that smb. - you - appreciates this singer except I & especially his (best) version of the best Christmas classic to boot. Respect. 3D

Randy Travis is quite famous in country circles I believe, isn't he? Not my cup of country, but definitely not a nobody in my mind.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Someone posted a video of Mike and his family singing Oh Holy Night on his Facebook page. Amber love sings the lead on this song. I don't think it's that good really she sounds more like she's yelling or screaming and doesn't really seem to have a nice tone to her vocals. Not terrible but just not pleasing to my ears.

Maybe she's copying Mike's awful and annoying habit of "bleating".   Roll Eyes

Agree. As I said, she's got voice which doesn't fit Christmas songs. Wish she quit singing them. Maybe today's r'n'b would be suitable. But, I wouldn't be fan anyway as I dislike her vocalizations, stylings or what do you call it.

Didn’t know where to post this.
While driving just now heard an announcement that Mike will be ‘spinning his favorite Christmas songs’ tomorrow on the Sirius/XM 60s channel . Don’t know any more. Assume his FB page will have more info

Seriousely... tired of those automatics types of comments on Mike... by always the same persons... I love "The Beach Boys", and every one of them. With their qualities and their bad sides!

If you speak of the thing on TV. It was not as the BB but as "Mike love", for is xmas lp. (Wich is a family lp).  even Bruce stayed back this day. the band was here as an orchestra not as the BB... that's how I felt it...
 Then for Stamos... apart Mike and Bruce, no  one else is a Beach Boy in the band. So him or another... (even if it's clear that Scott and the others are here for their musical talent and not Stamos😊).

Sure it's family album. But Ambhas, Hayleighs, Christians really ruined it. If smb. hates Ambha's voice, it must be respected by smb. who likes it.

Did I said I like her voice? You know what? I don't!  I only said that some people here think that hating Mike Love is hip! And showing their hate on every subject is hip. I don't think so. And I don't know what "respect" is doing here. I think we should RESPECT every member of our favorite group.

2mustomax: Did I say you like her voice? The poster you replied to about hating Mike commented about *Ambha*'s voice being bad ("bleating"). Maybe it could be said tactfully but the point is still similar to if the said poster said "she's nasal like Mike". If you read threads here & PS, even Mike's fans would say "in this song Mike sounds good, in that song it's at its nasal". I'm sure "bleating"/ "bleats" were used as well.
Some people may "hate" Mike but it's like what, 2-5 people in the ENTIRE board? Everybody else respects Mike/ each BB just fine. You know, you can respect him, yet be free to say sth. negative about, to stay in topic, this album. Reviewing isn't about just sunshiney positivity. Some like, some dislike etc. Each side should be listened & respected, dislikes not quickly be painted as "hating Mike". Anyhoo, the reply by me you quote did refer to you but at the same time, it's general statement.
