Uneven, but some great moments
This is interesting in its scheme. Some of the music doesn't work, but some is flat out great. In particular, the Michael Kessler remix of Mel Torme's "Christmas Song" (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire) is absolutely sublime. Kay Starr's "I've My Love to Keep Me Warm" has a very funky jazz sound to it, now. The Louis Armstong remix is hysterical and Bing Crosby sounds almost hip in the Happy Holiday remix (though the "First Noel" attempt falls flat on its face.) No, it's not for everybody but the one star rating is pretty unfair, in my book. It's something different in a genre that's usually the same old stuff.
fun, but not new.
This is fun stuff; however, it isn't new. I bought all of these songs on iTunes last year under a different album name.
Woulda been 5 stars, but...
These are not new offerings from iTunes... I love everything here, wonderful remixes, but something NEW woulda been nice... I already bought all of these in 2003, 2004, or 2005...
