Nothing Christmas about TRL
J. Martin | Woodside, NY | 11/02/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"What is the point of getting a bunch of pop stars together to make a Christmas CD that sounds nothing like a Christmas CD. There are maybe 3 tracks that will get you in the Holiday spirit.
Among them is Nsyncs I Don't Wanna Spend One More Christmas Without You, Christina Aguileras Angels We Have Heard on High, and Trans Siberin Orchestras Christams Cannon. Willa Ford is the worst thing about this album making a funky, sexy, inappropriate
song called Gimme Gimme Gimme. These songs seem out of place and don't fit on a Holiday CD. I would much rather hear these artists take holiday classics and redo them almost like the original versions. Instead they make a mess out of them."

"I love christmas songs, and while this cd was ok I would hardly consider it a classic. If you really want to get into the holiday spirit but christmas cds by Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, and Nsync. If you like compelation cds Platinum Christmas is much better thsn this."

"A CD like this amazes me. It comes along with the super gloss of a Britney Spears CD and the well-known names of popular music. The authors of these songs obviously are unconcerned with the quality of the final effort, they merely want the gilt for their share of the album. Why on earth would Christina Aguilera add a song to an album with Weezer? Because she didn't get enough sales from "My Kind of Christmas" to be happy. Now this, embossed with the celebrated phenomenon of MTV's hit music countdown show TRL throws 16 tunes we've heard elsewhere (or could easily just download!) and spoon feeds them to us once more.The CD starts off well, with the second best song of the album Willa Ford's "Santa Baby" (Gimme Gimme Gimmie). Some mindless drivel including an over-lacquered *NSYNC track and the impressive (though sometimes admittedly nerve-wracking) Christina Aguilera tune. Oh, and don't forget to pitch some TLC our way with their recycled non-hit previously featured on Platinum Christmas.We then get to a fresh, fun and enjoyable song by Blink-182 "I Won't Be Home For Christmas" which makes a mockery of the gift-exchanging ritual as well as those bothersome carolers as well as pesky relatives. "It's Christmas time /again/ time to be nice to the people you can't stand/all year"From there, the ablum plunges into musical oblivion. Weezer and P.O.D. "Rock the Party" with their unpleasant screaming. LFO stops in to lement over not havin' nobody, and Angela Via screams at us for a while. Finally, the Trans Siberia Orchestra BLASTS OUR EARDRUMS off with their impressively loud rendition of Christmas Canon. Then, Hark! (What's this?) Silence! You hear nothing. The CD rotates, preparing for the next unsuspecting listener. Filled with glee after hearing that clatter, you throw back your earphones to see if cousin Myrtle got fatter. And on the way downstairs with kisses being blown to ya, you can't help declaring a very merry "Aleluja!""
