Product Description

Product Description

Barenaked Ladies celebrate the holiday season with their ninth major release, Barenaked For The Holidays. This release features many holiday favorites, including "Do They Know It's Christ- mas"(written by Bob Geldof )and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," performed with Sarah McLachlan, and seven original tracks including BNL's new holiday single "Elf's Lament," featuring Michael Bubli. Ed Robertson and Steven Page"s distinctive vocals give a fresh sound to traditional holiday classics. Barenaked For The Holidays is sure to be a holiday favorite that is fun,witty and dynamic.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Extremely let down with this Christmas CD. I have been a long time BNL fan and was completely blown away at how bad this album was. I tried about 4 times to listen all the way through and could only succeed by listening to the beginnings of each song and then pushing the next button. However, it does make a good coaster for my rum and eggnog.

I wished the BNL would have a made a better Christmas CD before Stephen Paige left.

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.

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. I love "Elf's Lament" most of all. These gentlemen are talented musicians and song-writers. I strongly recommend this disc as a wonderful alternative to the typical holiday music.

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.
