"I was astounded to find this in the used bin at a local record store, and I was thrilled, as both a collector of Christmas music and an afficionado of 80's alternative and electronica, to see artists like Aztec Camera, Cabaret Voltaire and the Durutti Column on this compilation. To be fair, if you're into the Christmas standards, this CD is NOT for you. If, however, at any point in your life you painted your nails black and hung out at a goth club, you might be intrigued by some of the interesting, and occasionally ascerbic takes on Christmas here. This is a widely eclectic collection of musical styles, from Benedictine chant to angry industrial, with a lot of very strange stops in between."
