The third in the series of indie-alternative-folk rock Christmas albums, Maybe This Christmas Tree combines more of the most eclectic and funky tracks for you to enjoy. A breakaway from the standard "Jingle Bells" all of the songs are uniquely song and performed, with a few originals or unfamiliar songs.

"Happy Christmas (The War Is Over)" kicks off the album with a chorus of singing children and a full orchestra, a strong contrast with the vintage psychadelic guitar and lead vocals. The Ravonettes rock "The Christmas Song" in a sultry duet that'll have you tapping your feet.

Kings of mellow, Death Cab For Cutie, contribute an echoey yet slightly awkward track that is out of sort with their usual sound. Pedro The Lion is more successful with their ultra chilled "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day" that captures the spirit of a never-ending snowy Christmas day with your family. Belasana's song is a bit off-topic Christmas wise, but is a nice track regardless, cool guitars and vocals.

Ivy do an awesome rendition of "Christmas Time Is Here" that sounds as though its streaming out of a radio circa 1935, really beautiful and simple with string accompianment. Royal Crown Revue keep up the vintage-sound with the classic "Baby It's Cold Outside" that'll warm your insides.

Tom McCrae crawls his way through "Wonderful Christmastime" that really doesn't match the song at all, unless you are manic-depressive and in the mood to whimper through a Christmas Carol. Pilate's "Fairytale of New York" is another ironic look at the 'joys' of Christmas. The opening line "It was Christmas eve, your in the drunk tank..." says it all.

Anyone else sick of the old rock and roll christmas mixes with the Smithereens and Queen? Finally some modern ones.

This is a good compilation for those who like this genre (meaning indie). Fairytale of New York was a descent cover, but I prefer the original Pogues version. The Maybe This Christmas... trio is definitely worth the money. None of the 3 are solid all the way through - somes songs are lacking a bit, but on the whole you could make 2 really good CDs from the 3 combined.

What a great CD if you like your xmas music fresh, new, and out of the ordinary. I recommend this album especially for two outstanding tracks in particular. Most importantly is the fantastic take of Vince Guiraldi's "Christmastime is Here" (yes, from the Charlie Brown cartoon), done by Ivy. Dominique Durand's voice sounds fabulous no matter what she sings, and she makes this song really shine. Also worth checking out is Death Cab for Cutie doing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)", a must for any fan. The other songs all fit well within this compilation, strangely enough, Amazon doesn't list the songs on the product page. But, for a complete listing and streaming audio of the whole album, go to [...] Enjoy!

This weekend I was looking for some Christmas music to add to my iTunes library when I came across Nettwerk's MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS TREE, a collection of Xmas music by a group of indie pop bands like Death Cab for Cutie and Pedro the Lion. I was intrigued and I checked out the cd. I have to say that this is one of the better modern Christmas compilations I have heard. There are not a lot of Christmas cds from the alternative genre that I find enjoyable. I like how every artist on the cd gave their song its own unique twist like Royal Crown Revue did with "Baby It's Cold Outside" by giving it a swing flavor. Ivy's trip hop interpretation of the Charlie Brown classic "Christmas Time is Here" had a seductive element thanks to its laid back electronic grooves. I loved The Polyphonic Spree's cover of John Lennon's classic "Happy Xmas (War is Over)". There isn't one song on the album I didn't like. Despite not being a fan of Jars of Clay and Lisa Loeb, they did alright with the songs they covered. MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS TREE has quickly become one of my favorite Christmas cds of all time.

Format: Audio CD
I haven't heard the earlier volumes in this series but I'd certainly like to. The copy I've been listening to doesn't include the cover of the John Lennon classic (Happy Xmas war is over) that everybody else seems to have so I can't comment on that track although I'm familiar with several other versions of the song. As far as the rest of the album is concerned, I wasn't impressed on first listen but the album grew on me with each play. It just gets better and better. I like hearing different interpretations of familiar songs but some work better than others.

Highlights include Death Cub for Cutie with their cover of the Phil Spector classic, Christmas (Baby please come home), Royal Crown Revue featuring Vicky Tafoya with their cover of the forties classic, Baby it's cold outside, Pilate with a cover of the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl classic, Fairytale of New York and Jars of Clay with a cover of Christmas for cowboys, which I first heard on John Denver's album, Rocky Mountain Christmas. However, my favourite is Lisa Loeb's superb version of Jingle bells, whe she sings at a slower than usual tempo in a really sexy voice. Tom McCabe's version of the Paul McCartney classic, Wonderful Christmastime, is very melancholy contrasting sharply with the bright and cheerful original. Personally, I don't think this song suits such an interpretation but I know that others think it's brilliant. You must make up your own mind.

If you're looking for standard versions of Christmas classics, you are advised to look elsewhere. If, however, you enjoy hearing familiar songs given (for the most part) very distinctive interpretations, you should seek this out. Even if (like me) you find that one or two don't sound quite right, you'll find that the others provide plenty of compensation.
