The Carpenters' Christmas album

There's one CD that I love to listen to each Christmas but find most people do not like. They say it's too slow, makes them feel sad, is too depressing or puts them to sleep.

That one special CD is The Carpenters' (as in Karen & Richard Carpenter, the brother and sister duo from Southern California) Christmas Portrait. More than any other Christmas CD in my collection this is my most treasured.

Yup, I agree..I hate that CD, but then again I think the Carpenters were the creepiest musical sibling duo ever. I swear there was incest going on there

Love that CD - and the Carpenters. Most of the knocks against them are due to two things: their massive popularity in the early '70s and their squeaky-clean image. As for their music, their critical standing has improved over the years, but some can't get past their image.
