  1. Aside from the obvious point that it is strange hearing Dylan, née Robert Zimmerman, singing Christmas songs, it is often just awkward to listen to the elder's scraggly croak making its way through commonly known carols.

    I'm not much for Christmas albums, but this one stands out!

    The negative reviewers are missing the tongue-in-cheek attitude with which Dylan pulls off this, my favorite of all holiday albums. And if you haven't seen the video for "Must Be Santa" check it out on youtube. Full Review »

    Don't be fooled by the critics - this is the nadir of Dylan;s career. Truly awful!
