Since the NOW collections feature a collaboration of major labels, they have a tremendous selection of music from which to pick and choose, making for one terrifically thorough Christmas record. Like its predecessor, NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL CHRISTMAS 2 trawls through the catalogues of the major record companies for Yuletide classics of all shapes and colors. This volume then separates the bunch into one disc entitled "Now and Forever," featuring tunes from the past couple decades, and a second disc called "Then and Always," diving further into the past.
With 36 songs by familiar artists, this compilation does a good job of standing up to other Christmas collections. The songs range from standards such as Andy Williams' dulcet-toned "The First Noel" and Lou Rawls' soulful scat on "The Little Drummer Boy" to the Waitresses' new-wave rap "Christmas Wrapping." In addition, a frenetic live version of the already-peppy Jose Feliciano classic "Feliz Navidad" hangs out next to the laid-back Burl Ives version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," and it all wraps up with Guy Lombardo singing "Auld Lang Syne," as he closed many a year for thousands of nostalgic souls.
