The S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder) Holiday Album !

(5 out of 5 stars)
"A bizarre, downright subversive yet wonderfully wry (awry?) concept for a Christmas album, subtitled "Music for Your Misery." Consists of "heavy" and morose non-holiday classics from composers such as Wagner, Holst, Bach, Sibelius, most dealing with death or war. Definitely not your typical holiday fare, which I think is the point. If you're tired of all the phony goodwill and psuedo-cheeriness of the Christmas season and would rather defiantly wallow in your holiday funk, then this is the album for you. Or, makes a great stocking stuffer for members of your family you'd like to permanently scare away! A Christmas album you can play all year long....... cheaper than therapy!!! An ingenious, darkly humorous novelty Christmas album---with some great classical music to boot! Worth it for the title and tacky cover photo alone ! ! !"
