Album Review

This is not your typical Christmas album. 5 Chinese Brothers adopt a variety of generic folk, country, and rock & roll song styles and then write new, gently comic, Christmas-themed lyrics over them. For example, "Dept.

The result is a likable collection that will serve as a change of pace from those Bing Crosby and Mannheim Steamroller records during the holiday season.
