Raise Your Holiday SPIRITS!
Matt Sigl | New York, NY United States | 11/02/2002

"Leave it to the geniuses at Ultra-Lounge to put together the Christmas Album you always wanted but could never find. This is Christams through an ironic lens. So cleary not "cool" that its ridiculousness makes it so. Very paradoxial. This is Christmas music devoid of any real sentinment but still shiny with a glossy venner of wholesomeness--underneath one can see (as with all lounge music) the seedy side of the 1950's. This IS Cocktail music after all. (Dean Martin ONLY sang Cocktail music, ask his liver!) Highlights of this edition include Mr. Martin's BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE, The delightful Bonus Track "What is a Santa Claus" and Lena Horne's spellbinding JINGLE ALL THE WAY. To hear her sing the word "Horse" with no less than six vowel sounds is worth the price of the album alone. As always the album and jacket art are first rate and the liner notes by RJ SMITH are amoung the best in album commentary EVER! Smith captures the period, the music, and the modern attraction to it in a stylish and comic essay. Once again the Ultra Lounge gives us everything we want from lounge music and more. So sip some spiked egg nog, light the yule log, and have a swinging holiday season."

"Both Vol.1 and Pt.2 of the ULTRA LOUNGE CHRISTMAS series consists of a great musical holiday soundtrack for child raised during the cocktail 1960s.
Upon listening to both CDs, your memories will transport you back in time to tinsel clustered trees drowned in multi-color lights & wasted uncles with a plastic baby jesus' lying under an artificial tree.This collection of holiday CDs are the perfect tool for entertaining & injecting "kitchy" ambiance into your holiday festivities.
The sound is retro and currently very trendy.It's fun listening to these long forgotten classics dusted off and delivered in with a "LOUNGE" packaging.Both volumes should be added into your collection!"
The Christmas Album you never knew you always wanted!

"Christmas Music is perhaps the most mood-setting element in the holiday season. Perhaps even more than a brightly lit tree or a freshly baked batch of cookies; the music of the season defines its experience. Yet what about Christmas cocktail parties? One could play a popular christmas album by any number of popular singer/songwriters but the sound can get monotonus for a large gathering. Quasi-religous choral music certainly is not appropriate for the occasion either. Christmas Cocktails is just the answer to this sphinxian riddle. The album is first and foremost F-U-N, with selections bu Dean Martin, Lena Horne amoung others: one can expect only the most entertaining and finest quality lounge music. To hear traditional classics arranged in the lounge idiom is equally thrilling since all the other ultra-lounge albums display music that is only "LOUNGE MUSIC," not music that has been well and creatively adapted. My personal favorite track: Jingle Bells. Only Ms. Horne can take a standard like that and make it a highlight. Just buy it already!"
