4.0 out of 5 stars I Want A Super Intendo...sega Genesis...Street Fighter 2 December 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I admit I didn't have this album when it was released in like 98 or something, but I've had it for a good three or four years. I remember seeing it chillin in the bargain bin for a whoppin 4.99 at the local Wherehouse Music and I thought Why Not? If I didn't like it I could burn it and return it(say it was scratched) and if I liked it I could just keep it. A win-win situation. So I got it and popped it in and was pleasantly surprised. This is, as reviewer Nathan stated, a sincere holiday album.

Christmas On Death Row contains soulful interpretations of classic songs such as Silent Night, Silver Bells(Go Michele!!!), Christmas Song (Danny Boy), Frosty The Snowman, O Holy Night, This Christmas, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, and Christmas Everyday. All of the these songs are sung beatifully with nice backdrops; they stay true to the original yet put a slight urban spin on the sounds. Yet, they are still recognizable and completely enjoyable. Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto by Snoop, Bad Azz, Daz Dillinger, Tray Deee, and Nate Dogg is believe it or not a classic. They rap about life in the ghetto at Christmas time; yes they stay on topic and tell some christmas stories. I Wish by the Dogg Pound is another great song. The Pound talk about dreams, wishes, and aspirations on this song. Greatness. The best song to me though is the Nate Dogg blessed Be Thankful. Nate Dogg really shows his chops on this one singing about how he's blessed and thankful for his family and friends. A Masterpiece. The only songs worth throwing away are Christmas In The Ghetto and Party 4 Da Homies, which are mindless rapping tunes with cursing (in a holiday album? Control yourself please) which gives the album the Parental Advisory sticker.

By Karl
Format:Audio CD
Is there any route to dollars untried by formidable Death Row boss and frankly scary hip-hop mogul Suge Knight? Well no actually, and the reissue of the Row's '96 festive chancer proves that long after the talent and even ideas for commercial scams have run dry, Knight is still looking for gold.
Things weren't too good for Knight and Death Row even back then, this album was released after Dre quit the label and its sagging mid-nineties-R&B-by-numbers vibe is a dead giveaway for a label at sea without a creative captain.
Other than the amusement of soul interpretations of carols and Christmas staples including 'Silent Night' and 'Frosty The Snowman' - you know 'Music To Smoke An Ounce To After Your Turkey' - the majority of this is depressingly humourless. There are some great quotes, like the none-truer observation, "Christmas time is a time for chillin' ". But that's it.
What the album revealed in '96 and reinforces with its reissue this year is that Knight's business head isn't smart enough to realise that the punters can only be patronised for so long. No investment in talent, no long-term return. It's hard to conceive of Death Row as anything other than a spent force milking the last few drops so that it's investors can finish furnishing their Malibu retirement homes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Row iz back on Life Row! December 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Death Row pulls out all the stops! They got all they stars in this joint! The only ones missing is Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and, for the most part, Snoop Dogg.

But they got 6 Feet Deep! Guess! Sean Barney Thomas! and even Danny Boy (whoz got da best rapper moniker, handz down! What'z a badder image than one of an old Irish guy in a sweater dancing jigz, yo? If you know, let me know! [call my cell])

Plus, yo, the packaging tearz it up! You can tell they literally got a pretty good artist to not just do a first drizaft drawing for the cover but also color it in and use Photoshop some! My man also used some perspective when drawing the little gift packages so they look like they in a 3-d space and all that!

But, back to the trax! Therez one called "Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto"! And it has stuff about Santa doing' weed! Which is so not the image of Santa we've got! Thus makin' it hilariouzzz!

It would take a mad week or two for me and my unmusical friends to crank out a joint wif the same quality as this! So much eazier to just go buy this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than You Thought! December 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ok....let's get some things out of the way right off of the bat. This is not a Hip Hop Christmas Album and there really are only 3 rap songs on here: Santa Claus goes straight to the ghetto, party 4 da homies and I wish. I wish is the only one worth mentioning and it actually does catch a holiday spirit. Ultimately a thug longing for love at christmas time...almost asking how can he expect it doing dirt.

The rest of the album is straight R&B and will seem familiar to you...why? Because most of the folks singing are the folks singing background on all the G-Funk hits. These songs are all surprisingly good with Danny Boy doing most of the heavy lifting. I got hipped to this CD while listening to all of R&B christmas shows on The Beat in LA and realized that my favorites were coming from this album.

So don't expect a rap album...take this for what it is...a mid nineties R&B compilation from an unexpected source. This is probably one of my favority R&B christmas albums...there have not been many good ones in quite a long time and quite easily outperforms a lot of the other compilations that amazon pairs with these CD as it contains quality from top to bottom.
