It is interesting. I think slow would have been more romantic which would have been great for them. Though, the fast pace was neat and I also enjoyed the jazzy feel. If it does end up on the Christmas episode I would like to see what they do with it. Aside from that, I am a little upset. I can easily sing Kurt's parts in BICO however LIS is posing a bit of a challenge for me biggrin.gif laugh.gif tongue.gif Overall, It is a cute number and I think the fact that it is them singing it makes it very cute.

Like it smile.gif The pace is faster but that actually made the song more joyous and for me, very playful . smile.gif Funny, i can see them having a snow ball fight, running around the snow,etc as i listen to the song.... ha ha ha... Liked the jazzy feel to it.. smile.gif

Very happy song and it brings a smile to my face and warmth in my heart... What a Christmas\holiday song should bring to the listener and i believe this song did that... smile.gif


I agree with this! I'm glad they switched it up a bit and didn't just do a copycat version of the original. They sound great together, love the harmonising and the playful up-beat melody!

Maybe it's because I'm a huge jazz nut, but I love the arrangement. I even dig Chris's voice on this song.

I like Darren's voice in this but I do think Chris sounds weird yet again.

I so wanted to like this but its way too fast and swingy, gutted because I do love the song and Klaine, they sound like they have been sped up way too much (especially Chris!) Hope its shown in the episode in a fun way, then I might enjoy it.

Normally I like this kind of up-tempo arrangement, but Let It Snow works sooo much better as a slower song. It just kills a lot of the charm for the sake of adding a most unnecessary p'zazz.

I love it.

I like that every verse is sung in a different way. It's never the same, each verse has another variation.
They really had fun with the music arrangement.

Darren and Chris both sound very good. Darren is smooth and is singing in the right style. And they are using Chris' tenor and falsetto/upper register 'coloring'/timbre in an excellent way.

The way the guys harmonize together in the scats: that's very good work.

OMG I love Chris on this. The tempo was an odd choice but it does keep it interesting too. smile.gif

I tried to keep an open mind about this... and hey look, I like it! I love jazz, and honestly I find this upbeat version much more entertaining than the slower versions. Darrens voice works great with jazz, and together he and Chris sound good. I like it. : )

I was hoping for something a little more classic and slow, but I still really like it.

I really like their voices together and it's fun and cute!!

I love Chris's voice here. I think I always prefer his duets to his solos...

They made something really Gleeful with it... even if the original stands on his own and would've been amazing anyway...

INDEED!!! the slowed down version is sooooo much better! It's not like they slowed it down to a "slow version" they just slowed it down to normal speed and now it doesn't sound like the chipmunks.

For ONCE, I can tolerate Chris high pitch voice.

I love this version. They manage to make an old and tired song into something fresh and exciting.

OMG, this is embarrassing. I have been listening to the some for like 20x...and then, realized it's the slowed down version. So just listened to the fast version...and it's weird...I guess I get used to the slow version, lol.

Yeah it took me a couple listens but I finally decided its not too shabby smile.gif The end is kinda what did me in.....JAZZY!

Anddd I just listened to the slower version and decided I liked it better...... Still praying Naya's Santa Baby and Rachel's River give me a reason to buy at least one or 2 songs from the album.

That version is a massive improvement.
