Released in 1995, Gloria Estefan's first holiday album, Christmas Through Your Eyes, has a few concessions to her Cuban heritage, particularly with "Arbolito de Navidad," but much of the album is devoted to adult contemporary arrangements of familiar songs, such as "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!," "The Christmas Song," and "White Christmas." In other words, it's nothing remarkable, even if it has a nice new song in the form of the title track, and it will wind up only being of interest to dedicated Estefan fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
