Parasol
Buy: Discogs (CD) | 7Digital MP3 | iTunes

This is one of those pretty ubiquitous releases that everyone knows about already, at least, for those searching out indie rock/pop Christmas tunes. That said, its not one of the better ones. I want to single out a great track that you NEED TO HEAR, but I’m at a loss to find one. The entire release is ok, but just that. Nothing on there makes me cringe, but nothing makes me excited. It hurts me to say so too, in that I really like the Parasol label, and greatly miss their distro.

However, don’t take my word as sacrosanct. I may be looking for something that you are not, and again, nothing on this release really sucks to the point where I would discourage you from listening on your own.

Bottom Line: When I think of average, I think of a record like this. 3/5

One thought on “Stuck in the Chimney (More Christmas Singles) (2001)

  1. I’m a big fan of The Green Pajamas and others seem to like Fonda’s “Last Christmas” more than I do. But, yeah, you’re not wrong. It’s pretty…average. I liked the first “Christmas Singles” CD from Parasol more, fwiw. The second one seemed pretty much superfluous.
