Justin Bieber's "Under The Mistletoe"

Parents are likely to buy Justin Bieber's Christmas Album for their kids and pray that their young ones will only play it through their headphones. But the elders be missing out. Bieber's "Under The Mistletoe" is a thoroughly entertaining offering for all ages - sometimes even more so for the adults.

Although he's still a teen hearthrob, there's little child like about this album (except for the song "Someday at Christmas," which closes out the deluxe CD, where a much younger Bieber channels Michael Jackson).

Bieber's voice has deepened, and the bubble gum sound has given way to a more mature, soulful sound. Bieber sounds convincingly romantic on the album's opener,"The Only Thing I Ever Get For Christmas." And on the soulful upbeat groove "Fa La La," with guests Boys II Men.

Bieber breaths new life into old standbys, and offers up new songs that have the potential to become future classics. Even if you don't have kids,"Under The Mistletoe" should be under your Christmas tree.
