I’ve had to spend the last week listening to earlier and earlier iterations of Christmas music. For some reason, “Chipmunks Christmas” hasn’t sent me over the edge. While we’ve heard most of these tunes over the last few decades, there’s something to the collection of Holiday hits here. More importantly, it’s a carefully crafted sampler that will entice the hearts of new listeners. Kids like high-pitched rodents and how they belt out tunes. After all, they did turn those three horrid movies into hits.
But, what does it mean here? Why should I push you to purchase this CD? Well, I shouldn’t. Most of you guys are going to beat over the head with this material via forced retail exposure. “Ho Ho Ho” and “Here Comes Christmas” are newer songs, but they’ve still got a few years on them. So, what does that mean for you? Again, there are certain caveats that we have to ask with these kinds of releases. Tolerance measured against lowered expectations.
Am I saying that all Christmas music warrants lowered expectations? No. I’m just saying that timed releases in a packed Holiday season aren’t necessarily bad. It’s just that you have to step outside of yourself to enjoy them. There is much to enjoy about “Chipmunks Christmas”. You’ve just got to step back and enjoy the material.
