Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's more than a bit of delightful holiday camp and irony afoot in the Crash Test Dummies' Jingle All the Way collection, from Brad Roberts' slow-mo delivery of "White Christmas"--with its heavy Hammond Organ--to Ellen Reid's Patsy Cline take of "O Little Town of Bethlehem," done in a convincing country-western style complete with pedal steel guitar. Still, there's serious business in the group's take on "We Three Kings" with the genuine Oriental influence of Ming Xioo-Fen's pipa playing, and Reid's readings of the traditional songs "The Huron Carol" and "In The Bleak Midwinter" are as reverent as standard Christmas songs get. Roberts' basso profoundo, on the other hand, is an acquired taste and he puts it to wickedly good use in "Jingle Bells," which is delivered like a medieval chant or rugby cry that's certain to put the fear in jolly old St. Nick. --Martin Keller

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant surprises December 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
A year ago, around the beginning of December, I was wondering through a CD shop and decided to glance through the "Holiday Music" Shelf. I spotted this disc and on a lark, purchased it as a goof for my girl friend while we decorated the tree.
When I popped in the CD, I was prepared for just about anything. What I discovered was a warm, entertaining, fun disc of Holiday music. We liked it so much, that the night before we left on our Christmas Holidays, we happened upon an ad for "Crash Test Dummies Holiday Tour" with a stop at a local music hall. We put off packing until after midnight to make the show.
I'm not sure if this disc was produced with tongue planted firmly in cheak, or with the intentions of producing a collection of Holiday material that puts a sincere warm smile on your face. Frankly I don't care. I love this record. It makes me smile every time I hear it. I've given it as a gift...5 times last year and 3 times this year. In my opinion it is a classic...right up there with the Drifter's version of White Christmas. Buy it...it will make you smile. And that's what music...especially around the holidays is supposed to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ring in the Holiday Season with Jingle All The Way! October 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This year, it'll be a twisted Christmas indeed...
For those of you looking for something different in music for the Holiday Season, you can do no better than The Crash Test Dummies newest album, Jingle All The Way. Taking Christmas music to a whole new level, this CD is guaranteed to delight. True to their tradition, the Dummies are renowned to change their style with every album, and this one is no exception. A mix of mood, country, medieval and jazz, it's a fusion of all styles - there's something for everyone. As always, the music features the talents of Brad Roberts's unbelievably deep voice and his twisted sense of humor. Additionally, the haunting melodies of Ellen Reid are unforgettable. Not your traditional holiday fodder, this CD encompasses all of the strange magic that is the Crash Test Dummies with a new genre of holiday standbys that you will listen to year after year. RECOMMENDED USE: light a fire, turn off all the lights except for those on the tree, make yourself a cocktail, sit back on the couch and experience something new. Buy one for yourself, and get a couple extra to wrap and put under the tree. This is going to be a Christmas you'll never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pour the egg nog...and 'Jingle All The Way...' December 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Good, fun times will come when you play this collection of christmas tunes from the Crash Test Dummies. The choice of christmas songs are all standards with interesting, twisted, and sinfully yummy musical styles.
'Jingle All The Way...' opens warmly with 'White Christmas' with Brad Roberts musing about being up North while in Beverly Hills. Brad hands off lead vocal duties to the always welcome Ellen Reid, handling 'O Little Town of Bethlehem,' and 'In The Bleak Midwinter' among others.
In spite of the holiday theme, the album is reflective of early Crash Test Dummies good fun. From the menacing and demented 'Jingle Bells,' to the Vegas lounge lizard sound of 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentelmen,' this christmas album is surely to delight even the most rigid musical tastes.
This makes a fun and very merry christmas gift too. Instead of bringing wine for a holiday dinner with friends, bring your hosts this and some brandy and egg nog!!
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The single most interesting CD in our collection December 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Who would have thought that the same album would have the most achingly beautiful Christmas song ever - their version of In the Bleak Midwinter - and the scariest version of Jingle Bells in creation? A fun, eclectic, mix that can be both appropriately reverent and really "out-there". It's our new favorite. Definitely recommend this for anyone who likes CTD or is just tired of the same old 24/7 from Halloween to New Year's Holiday Music fare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool, different, AND pleasant listening January 20, 2006
By RICK
Format:Audio CD
I was not familiar with The Dummies work and bought this based on the reviews because I was over the same old recordings of Christmas fare.

This is really fun. A gregarian "Jingle Bells," some new voices and arrangements on traditional carols, and a great rendition of "In the Bleak Mid-winter." I am actually purchasing this a gifts for both my 55 year old sister and my 22 year newphew's stockings next year. I think they will equally enjoy it.

PS: For those of us who got it on to the Moody Blues in our youth, their album "December" is a must have. Similarly a big surprise from a non-traditional group.
