Christmas Music Review: Garth Brooks: Beyond the Season (1993)
In this CD Garth Brooks includes a very special song, "Unto You This Night." There is something in country music and its ability to tell a story with lots of emotion. This is one of those songs. It is beautiful. There is also a very good rendition of "The Friendly Beasts." It has a different singer on each verse. Brooks goes humorous in singing "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy." "Silent Night" is a great sing-along song, and it is performed with a great deal of reverence. "Mary's Dream" is a short instrumental, violin and piano, interlude that really sets a good mood. "What Child Is This" is the concluding number.
