Product Description

Amazon.ca

Few bands are better suited than the Barenaked Ladies to take obnoxious old Christmas jingles to an entirely new level of obnoxiousness. The Canadian pop group does a smack-up job on this generous collection, where they tackle children's relics like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," curious seasonal fare such as Band-Aid's Ethiopian charity single "Do They Know It's Christmas," and a handful of tongue-in-cheek originals that share the bookish humor of the band's hits like "One Week" and "Brian Wilson." Even the inclusion of three Hannukah songs doesn't raise the bar for reverence. The disc also includes collaborations with Sarah McLachlan and Michael Buble. --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars My Kind of Christmas Album! Dec 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Working in retail, where I hear 8 hours of Christmas music a day for over a month, this album is sooooo refreshing. I don't want to listen to carols at home, but I will always pop in the Oscar Peterson Christmas album whenever I'm feeling festive, or Vince Guaraldi. And now I can add this little gem to my CD changer as well. Clever, fun, and extremely musical. Thanks guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great songs, love Barenaked Ladies! Feb. 27 2005
By Terina
Format:Audio CD
We can listen to this CD anytime, and still be entertained by the kids or our dog who loves to sing to Christmas songs! Jingle Bells is classic, complete with the kids' version, heehee.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Birthday dear Jesus!! Oct. 10 2004
By sun
Format:Audio CD
Only the Barnaked Ladies could get away with singing Happy Birhtday to Jesus, and that partially sums up this holiday album. It incorporates many different moods and musical styles, taking some of the traditional songs and making them purely unique and beautiful, while making others absolutly ridiculous. There are some interesting originals which a person could listen to all year round, including Footprints, and Christmastime(oh Yeah). The album seems to be a perfect blend of goofy tunes and warm holiday songs. The only draw back is that there are three short songs that feature only keyboard and midi drum tracks. Other than that, it is a must have for any Barenaked Ladies fan, and anyone wanting an alternative to the usual ordinary holiday music.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed Nov. 26 2004
By Jim C.
Format:Audio CD
Being a big BNL fan, I couldn't resist picking up this CD. However, I am really not impressed. Some of the song are just a littly too hokey ("Happy Birthday to Jesus"??) making the Ladies' usual comedic wit seem just plain childish. For some reason Steven tried to use an octave on "Jingle Bells" that was just a little high out of his range, and you can hear him struggle. The "casio bassanova"s made me feel like I was in an elevetor at the mall. Sorry - just not up to the usual high-standard of BNL.

2.0 out of 5 stars It is not their best by a long shot... Nov. 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First of all, before I hear the chorus of "boos" and "bah humbugs", I would like to say that I am a big fan of the Barenaked Ladies. I have seen them in concert twice and I own several of their CDs. They have amazing voices that lend to beautiful harmonies that are not offered by many bands out there.
And with that being said, I was completely disappointed with their Christmas album. I was expecting the Barenaked Ladies' typical energy and harmonies and was disappointed in both areas. "Jingle Bells" was downright depressing and WHO can make "Jingle Bells" depressing? I mean, come on! It's "Jingle Bells"!
I felt ripped off with the instrumental songs on the CD. It should have been mentioned in the title list on the back of the CD to warn consumers. If there is one thing that I do not know The Barenaked Ladies for it is there instrumentals -- and with good reason. Boring.
Overall, I felt that The Barenaked Ladies energy was mostly absent from this CD.
For a great Christmas complilation, check out Holly Cole's xmas album. You will also be treated to a FANTASTIC duet between her and Ed Robertson.
In conclusion, the reason that I give my review two stars is for two reasons :
Star #1 it's the Barenaked Ladies. Hello!
Star #2 track number ten, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings" with Sarah McLachlan. If the entire CD had been like this song, it would have been a FIVE STAR review for sure!
Well, it's $15 of my money I will never get back. I will simply keep playing the one or two tracks that I love over and over again and satisfy myself with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars BNL Delivers for the Holidays Oct. 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Barenaked Ladies spice up the holidays in only a way they can. This 20 song album is filled with their brand of lyrics and creativity on classic holiday songs (and not just christmas) and new ones. But because of this, the album is not one to relax to but instead would be great for parties anytime of the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but my wife loves it... Dec 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Die-hard BNL fan? This may be just a little too over the edge for you. We bought it (right here in fact) on a bit of a whim and I haven't been able to wrestle the darn thing away from my wife since it arrived. Maybe it's the trademark tongue-in-cheek examintion of the holidays that the Ladies seem to have wrapped around the hectic commercialism of the season. Maybe it's the Michael Bublé cameos that give the "filler" songs that jazzy twist. Perhaps it has something to do with the synthesizer/backbeat destructions of short instrumental classics so much resemble the music we used to play on grandma's electric organ on Boxing Day. Who knows... It's fun. Whatever. Maybe not as wholey original or absolutely new as it could have been, but BNL have recorded themselves more than a couple tracks worthy of adding to your collection.

This album is so much fun! If you enjoy the quirky-ness of the Ladies, you will enjoy this album. If you are looking for traditional holiday musical fare, probably not a good buy... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy addition to a holiday music collection
I think it is a great disk. As a longtime BNL fan, I found that it is not as clever as their albums usually are (you get a feeling they cranked it out in a hurry), but it is still... Read more

I am a huge BNL fan--let's get that out of the way first of all. However, even those who are not fans will enjoy this mix of Christmas and non-Christmas music. Read more
