"Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album" By Glee Cast - Available Now!

Glee The Christmas Album is Glee�s fifth release in 2010, and the first of two full-length albums to be issued in November alone.

Appearing several weeks after another holiday-themed record - The Rocky Horror Glee Show, it features a handful of wintertime tunes, from the standard crop of Christmas carols to more secular fare like Frank Loesser�s �Baby, It�s Cold Outside� and the Carpenters� �Merry Christmas Darling.� Most of the carols are what you�d expect: slick, sentimental, and performed in Glee�s familiar Broadway-pop style, with solos by the cast members and backup vocals by a group of unseen professionals.

�Baby, It�s Cold Outside,� on the other hand, melts under the unexpected warmth of Chris Colfer�s duet with Darren Criss, who plays Kurt�s openly gay love interest. A duet between two male characters - with lyrics like �Gosh, your lips are delicious,� no less - is a refreshingly risqu� move for Fox TV, not to mention a definite album highlight. After all, Glee became popular by pushing boundaries and ignoring convention, so it�s reassuring to see the spark still burning.
