Prime Cuts: Penguin, James Penguin, Santa Looked A lot Like Daddy, I'll Be Home for Christmas

Santa's secret spies, confronting Christmas addictive withdrawals, and daddy playing dress-ups: these are sacred totems associated with the yuletide for Brad Paisley. While many a Christmas CD offers punctilious readings of traditional carols stuck in a mire of saccharine sentimentality, Paisley's debut holiday effort shows personality. Ingenuity and his ingrained humor get the upper hand as this country superstar revels in the frolicsome candor of the festive season. However, not all is frivolous fun, on certain tracks Paisley does essay the lofty message of Christmas and its sentiments via some of most timely formidable carols of yore performed with a romantic valor and thoughtful impeccability. Though this is a seasonal detour, stylistically "A Brad Paisley Christmas" does not sidestep too far away from Paisley's typical country outings. Just as his albums has never been monolithic; a bit of everything represented on this CD: from romantic lush ballads, to spitfire honk tonk to revved up rock to an instrumental as well as a few nods to Paisley's comical side.

The more interesting tracks here are the originals, of which there are four. Paisley ups the ante on his narrative skills on the jovial narrative about Santa's secret spy that goes by the moniker "Penguin, James Penguin." Told with a tickle of cheekiness, "Penguin, James Penguin" ought to add Christmas cheer to kids as well as bring a seasonal smile to adults. Much less colorful is the laconic "364 Days to Go" a wry cynical bluesy-ballad about the obsessive entanglements of the holidays.

I have been a fan of Brad since 2004 and I have eagerly awaited a Christmas album. Well after 7 years of being on the scene, here it is and I believe it was well worth the wait.

1. Winter Wonderland- 8/10 This is song is NOT my favorite Christmas song and that is the only reason I give it an 8. Brad's voice superb and any country music fan with information about the Opry members will love the Jim Ed Brown line that is thrown in there

2. Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy- 10/10 In this Buck Owens' cover, Brad shines. I have only heard the original a few times, but this version makes me think of Buck and of Brad and Buck's relationship.

3. I'll Be Home for Christmas-10/10 Brad's voice gave me chills. His voice is definitely at its best here. It's an amazing version of the this song, and even if you hate this song, you'll be sure to enjoy Brad's version.

4. Away in a Manger-9/10 When I heard the electric guitar at the beginning, I thought "Oh no...please no..." because I've had this song ruined before by another country artist. Luckily, the electric guitar fades away by the time Brad starts singing. The electric guitar does persist throughout, but it is not overally powerful and complements Brad's singing rather than detracting from it.

5. Penguin, James Penguin- 10/10 Brad Paisley and Frank Rogers penned this instant child favorite. Any adult will enjoy as well. It tells of a secret agent bird. The story line is reminiscent of Rudolph, but not too much. It definitely has some great lines in it.

6. 364 Days to Go-8/10 I have this song on an exclusive Target cd released last year (and in 2001) as well as this cd. In the Target cd, the song seems different than this version.

I'll admit, I'm a big fan of Brad Paisley. But I'll try to keep my review unbiased...

Brad has done a fantastic job of blending country with Christmas music. All the tracks are pleasant to listen to. Brad's vocal and guitar skills are again proven unmatched by any other. As with other Brad Paisley CDs, you will also find a Kung Pao Buckaroo track, which is hilarious. Again, as always you will find an instrumental track, incidentally the Jingle Bell.

You will also find a track featuring a song from Brad's childhood, Born on Christmas Day. I disagree with the other reviewer, Mr. Branchini, who calls the inclusion of the track "self-indulgent." After all, this is a Christmas album, and this is a song young Brad Paisley himself wrote about Christmas. This is one of my favorite tracks. But then again, every track on this album is a favorite.

Great job, Brad.

My house rule of "No Christmas Music Will Be Played January Through November" has been broken - by me. In fact, since I bought this CD last week, the Rule has been broken over and over because I cant stop listening to it! This CD is a no-brainer for any BP fan, for "Born on Christmas Day" alone, but also listeners unfamiliar with Paisley's music will thoroughly enjoy it. "Kung Pau Buckaroo Holiday" will make even those most politically correct smile, and "Penguin, James Penguin" is an instant children's Christmas classic.

I absolutely love Brad Paisley and I love what he has done with these great xmas songs!!He's given these old favorites a country make over while still keeping the spirit of Christmas.
He includes an excellent version of Buck Owens classic Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy-this will get your feet tapping!And the most amazing version of Away In A Manger I have ever heard-between Brads voice and electric guitar plus the fantastic fiddle arrangement you will just fall in love with this one.There's a great chilled out version of I'll Be Home For Christmas and Winter Wonderland.Brad also includes 3 new songs that he wrote for this cd,the standout one been Born On Christmas Day which he wrote at just 13.The song begins with Brad at 13 singing the song with just his acoustic guitar then transforms into the Brad of today,it really showcases just what an amazing voice he really has!!
He finishes up the album with the classic Silver Bells and the truly hilarious Kung Pao Buckaroo Holiday with the infamous Kung Pao Buckaroos(Bill Anderson,George Jones and Little Jimmy Dickens)The perfect way to end this brilliant festive album.
This will be a xmas album that you will enjoy for years to come...
