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

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 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.

Came in quickly however one song does skip thru the entire song. Other than that great cd. Probably wouldn't order again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the Holidays! Oct. 15 2012
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
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 for you. Very enjoyable and highly recommended!

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 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Makes a great Coaster for Christmas Drinks Jan. 17 2011
Format:Audio CD
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.
