    This album felt mostly like a cash grab album. It wasn't a terrible album but it was certainly far from great. Silent Night is by far the best song here, with Bieber actually showing he has some singing range. Everything else is very hit or miss with the biggest miss coming in the form of Drummer Boy where Bieber sings fairly well and then spits a ridiculous rap out of nowhere thatThis album felt mostly like a cash grab album.

Everything else is very hit or miss with the biggest miss coming in the form of Drummer Boy where Bieber sings fairly well and then spits a ridiculous rap out of nowhere that completely ruins the song. Bieber fans will enjoy this one but he won't be attracting any new fans here. Expand

    The guests are the album's saving grace.

    Mr. Bieber hasn't ever sounded this good. But even Mr. Harrell can't place Mr. Bieber on equal footing with some of his more accomplished guests

    The Biebs' gentle set of gentile carols on Under the Mistletoe isn't coal-lump bad; it's more like a dorky sweater from Nana with a 20 in the pocket.
