How to Choose a Christmas Album – Buying Guide

Traditional Christmas carols, such as The First Noel and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing were first sung over a hundred years ago. Since then, all kinds of Christmas songs have been composed and made available, making the days leading up to December 25th merry and bright. Let us guide you on what to consider in selecting a Christmas album.

1

Select the Genre That Will Set Your Preferred Mood

Select the Genre That Will Set Your Preferred Mood

Deciding on the genre that you prefer will narrow down the list of choices. More often than not, a particular category matches well with certain moods and activities.


Jazzy Christmas music are best enjoyed in the morning while drinking coffee and preparing breakfast. Meanwhile, R&B and soulful albums are ideal for long drives to create a more laid-back vibe.


Pop, upbeat and rock music will energize you during lazy afternoons. Most of the time, these up tempo tunes set the perfect mood for Christmas shopping, decorating and wrapping gifts. Lastly, romantic ballads and gospel songs can help you wind down and relax at night.

Look for Your Favorite Artist’s Christmas Album

Look for Your Favorite Artist’s Christmas Album

When it comes to finding a good holiday playlist, you may want to check first if your favorite artist or band has a Christmas album. This way, you’re assured that you will enjoy the singing style, the voice, or in the case of singer-songwriters – the lyrics and melody.


Also, look into the album’s track listing. Here you’ll see whether the album includes covers or remixes of classic Christmas songs you grew up listening to or features new compositions that you may want to check out. 

3

Consider a Compilation Album Featuring Various Artists

Consider a Compilation Album Featuring Various Artists

For more variety, consider a compilation album that features various artists. With this kind of holiday album, you get to enjoy different styles and genres. Often, bands and singers would collaborate on a single to add a new twist to traditional Christmas carols.


If you’re into holiday movies, also look into the original soundtracks of blockbusters such as Home Alone, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Love Actually, and even Die Hard!


Not only do OSTs remind you of how amazing those movies are, listening to these tracks will certainly lift your mood and even inspire you to start decorating your home or shopping for presents

Pick Between a Physical Album and an Electronic Copy

The advances in technology these days allow us to enjoy holiday songs in many formats. These include physical albums in the form of audio CDs and vinyl records as well as electronic copies that you can download and store on your phone and other gadgets. 

Audio CD and Vinyl Records as Collector’s Items

Audio CD and Vinyl Records as Collector’s Items

Meanwhile, vinyl records have resurged from the 70s and are now becoming a popular collector’s item. It provides an excellent sound quality that is very similar to the original recording. This also brings nostalgia especially with its album artworks and sleeve notes.


However, you should prepare a large storage space if you’re planning to expand your vinyl collection. Also, note that these are high maintenance and need extra care because vinyl records are vulnerable to dust and scratches – too much damage may affect its sound performance. 

Downloadable Songs for Your Phones and Other Devices

Downloadable Songs for Your Phones and Other Devices

Electronic copies on your phone, tablet, and laptop will give you quick access – literally at your fingertips, whenever you want to hear the sleigh bells ring.


You can choose to download your favorite albums through online stores such as iTunes. This way, the songs are stored permanently in your phone and other gadgets. You’ll be able to listen to them even without an internet connection. Just like owning a CD, you get to own a copy of the album.


Moreover, it is also a space-saving solution because you don’t need to worry about keeping CD cases while expanding your collection.

5

Try Streaming Apps for a Wide Selection of Songs

Try Streaming Apps for a Wide Selection of Songs

Streaming apps such as Spotify and Apple Music allow you to listen to albums and playlists anytime and anywhere through monthly subscriptions.You will get access to a massive library or database of songs and albums produced locally and internationally. It’s a great solution if you have limited hard-drive space in your gadgets. 


Aside from your subscription, you will need an internet connection to open the app on your phone or computer. Some apps offer a premium rate if you want to download songs or access your playlists offline. You can also enjoy an ads-free usage of the app.


However, you will not have control over the content of these streaming apps. For instance, the apps can regulate or adjust which albums or songs are available for streaming. Essentially, you don’t own the tracks or songs, and note that these may get deleted in the future
