To clarify to those who don't live in the Los Angeles area, KROQ's almost acoustic Christmas is a concert held yearly that gathers top rock/alternative bands for one big show. This CD has songs from the past concerts. So if you like live recored performances, then this CD is for you. KROQ also produces a christmas cd with the same bands doing christmas songs.

To the NY guy who reviewed this cd saying it was supposed to be christmas music, IT'S NOT, and it doesn't claim to be. It is advertized as the best of KROQ'S annual show "Almost Acoustic Christmas", which is held around Christmas every year with punk and rock bands. This recording contains GREAT versions of live songs from Blink 182, Everlast, Everclear, No Doubt, Cake, Smashmouth, Bush and more. I am a big fan of most of the bands on the cd, so if you aren't a fan of mainstream rock, this one won't tickle you pink, but if you are a fan, this one's worth it! And thanks to the NY guy for giving this great cd one star simply because he mis-interpreted the title, GOOD ONE BRO!

This is a best of live compilation from KROQ's Acoustic Christmas (in New York) throughout the years. Only half of the songs are acoustic though, nor are there any Christmas songs on here either (incase you wondered). The slip on the inside of the CD features pictures of all of the concert posters for the 10 years that the Acoustic Christmas has been held. The CD starts with a stellar "non acoustic" performance from Blink 182 of a less than stellar songs. It's a very fast paced song complete with electric guitars. Stupid Girl by Garbage has some nice crowd reaction and it's a very nice version of the song, different sounding than the original version. I don't care for Everlast, but even What Its Like was pretty good to hear. Hole performing Doll Parts was nice, even though it does sound a lot like the original. Walking On The Sun performed by Smash Mouth, is not as good as the original song, just because this version is sang very slow, so you can understand the singer clearly. Spiderwebs has a fast new swing to it than the original has, but unfortunately the crowd is not into the song at all, when singer Gwen asks for the crowd to sing the next verse... there is absolute silence (its awkwardly funny). Everclear plays a slow country style version of I Will Buy You A New Life, singer Art's vocals sound slightly muffled though. Everything Zen has an incredible crowd reaction, girls screaming in the background, and the performance is every bit as good as the original. I'm not a big fan of Cake, but the Distance was performed excellently, with some good crowd noise and horns backing up the lead vocals. Fake Plastic Trees is probably the worst song, in fact I tend to fall asleep to it, because it is so mellow and slow paced.Read more ›

This is listed as an acoustic Christmas-not a single holiday song is on it! Don't waste your time and money folks!
