    Mark Kozelek Sings Christmas Carols is a remarkably faithful, utterly transcendent take on what I will humbly submit is the beatific, unadorned side of Christmas music.... This is the holiday release of the year.

    The beautiful results make it clear that, unlike poor Charlie Brown, he does understand. [Jan 2015, p.92]

    It’s the gap between his character and the songs’ sentiments that gives this album its curious appeal.

    Like Benji, this is an album that operates in places and moods we may not always feel comfortable venturing into or putting on, but works wonders for personal and spiritual growth.

    The Sun Kil Moon frontman may revel in the role of indie-rock’s great white grinch, but as Sings Christmas Carols proves, he’s no more immune to the spirit of the season than his furry green counterpart was.

    It comes off like Leonard Cohen if he kept his Biblical allusions strictly seasonal, and goes down as smoothly as rum-heavy eggnog. Quite captivating. Simple, and earnest, really.

    The selection here covers a comprehensive gamut of hymns, carols and miscellaneous Christmas songs from all the usual suspects to a few curveballs. [No. 116, p.59]
