Editorial Reviews

Electric Hillbilly Christmas cheer from Billy Bob Thornton and The Boxmasters! Includes choice Christmas classics as well as three newly penned holiday originals from The Boxmasters. Move over Bing Crosby and Dean Martin, it's beginning to look a lot like a Boxmasters Christmas! The Boxmasters, W.R. `Bud' Thornton, J.D. Andrew and Mike Butler return this holiday season with Christmas Cheer, an album full of seasonal cheer, real life fear and just about every mixed Yuletide emotion in between, but ultimately a record that speaks to the eternal child in all of us. Prepare for a different kind of white Christmas, Boxmasters style. Produced by W.R. `Bud' Thornton and J.D. Andrew.

3.0 out of 5 stars You got screwed by Santa Claus again. December 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Boxmasters feature lead singing and drumming by actor Billy Bob Thornton. This is the band's second album, and it's a Christmas album, obviously. I guess the title "Christmas Cheer" is meant ironically, because the album is none too cheery. Most of the songs are rather melancholy, albeit done sardonically enough to keep things from being TOO depressing. The music is played in a country & western style that harkens back to the sounds of Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. Billy Bob actually does a decent job as a singer. Three of the ten sounds were written by the group, and these original songs are definitely the highlights of the album. They are about depressing situations, but they are told in a witty way. As for the seven "cover" songs, they aren't bad, but there are definitely better versions of all these songs out there. But there are worse ways to spend Christmas than with Billy Bob Thornton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff July 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Exactly what I expected, it's the Boxmasters playing Christmas songs. These other reviewers seem surprised at the music...why?

If you like their other albums, then this is worth 10 bucks, for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Were Expecting Bing Crosby? December 7, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Of course the title "Christmas Cheer" is used ironically. Did you really expect anything else from the star of "Bad Santa?" The original songs like "Slower Than Christmas" and "I Won't Be Home for Christmas" are great if you liked the dark holiday humor of "Bad Santa" and the countrified humor of "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer." The classic tunes are done in a rockabilly format and are OK, though Thornton isn't exactly going to make you forget about Johnny Cash. I wish there were more of the original tracks, because those are really the best part of this album. Still, even at 33 minutes it's a bit of holiday fun.

That is all.
