John Legend released a new Christmas album this year

I have slept on it so far but I just read that it is produced by Raphael Saadiq so I might check it out now.

Have seen him singing on every possible TV special wearing the 1980 Grammys MJ Off The Wall bowtie and suit.

For some reason I like this guy but I dont like his music. I listened to the samples of his new holiday album and its just like all the rest of his music. Dull as dishwater.

I saw him open for Sade and he seemed to be phoning in his performance even with giddy giggling girls in the audience. He seemed especially bored when a middle-aged woman was selected for him to seranade and hand a rose to onstage... The old man sitting in my mostly empty section passed out and started snoring loudly... razz lol

John(who I met on one of The Smith's movie sets was very easy to talk to) has come a LONG way from the days he just sat at the piano & not moved. He has come full circle as a new EGOT winner & is quite the mogul now with his hands in practically everything. He's coming to my area soon for a Xmas concert. But I won't be attending.

I agree that John Legend can be bland though I think his first album and his album with The Roots are exceptions. However, I can't imagine that his take on Christmas songs will be anything but bland.

I keep hearing different songs from this new album on the radio, but I put the CD back AGAIN because I just can't listen to a whole album of it. Raphael Saadiq production be damned.

This made me LOL, for real, I'm still at work. Oooops.



I watched their Christmas special a few weeks ago. Reminded me of those Christmas specials I used to watch as a kid in the late 70s or around there. Very...wholesome.
