I love indie rock/indie pop Christmas, and was a fan of "Maybe This Christmas." The Paul Frank album art was cool, followed up by the fairly hip Oopsy Daisy art this time around.
But the tunes of "Maybe This Christmas Too" are taking a little longer to grow on me. I thought I would like it better than the first, as it has a nice assortment of cool artists - Rufus Wainwright, The Flaming Lips, Badly Drawn Boy. I would say the songs don't always fit together as well as they might.
The drawback is the relatively high ratio of bad tracks:
3. O Holy Night - Avril Lavigne & Chantal Kreviazuk
This is a BAD song. I even like tone deaf Avril, at least in her heavily produced album "Let Go." Here, she sounds like your 11 year old niece at her school Christmas recital. She is usually off key, and against a strong singer like Chantal, sounds dismal. She should have chosen a more rockin' track to suit her voice. The song is painful. Very painful. Plan on using your Skip button on the CD player. If only I could engineer out Avril to listen to Chantal.
4. Silent Night - Damien Rice & Lisa Hannigan
You are getting sleepy...very sleepy. Singing is too weak to sustain an a cappella version.
5. Xmas Cake - Rilo Kiley
Wow. This is a really dreary song. Not necessarily offensive, just a little sad and depressing for a Christmas track. And what the heck is Christmas cake?
The standout tracks?
6. Donde Esta Santa Claus? - Guster
This has a very happy retro feel, with funny lyrics like in the Ben Folds track on MTC, but with much better harmony and instruments. I love the song.
10. Green Christmas - Barenaked Ladies
I had heard this one before, but it's a nice, catchy tune.

I bought this CD for the Rilo Kiley track and that track only. Rilo Kiley did not let me down. Xmas Cake is another great song with a distinct tone unusual for a Christmas tune. The surprising thing is I like a lot of the other stuff, and some of it is by artists I would have claimed to hate or at least never listen to. I would give this CD 5 stars, but its all wrapped up in that awful, awful Oopsy Daisy art...Paul Frank is fun, cool, well-designed, but the Oopsy is that sort of art which initially attracts me before I quickly avert my eyes in seach of something visually appealing and pleasing.

My wife and I love this album! - I recently purchased it, and can't stop listening to it!
I ESPECIALLY loved Avril Lavigne's "O Holy Night" - While I am not a Christian, I was VERY moved by the passion I felt from her and Chantal Kreviazuk. It reminded me of how I felt about Christmas many years ago.
If you want a little diversity in your Christmas album collection, purchase this album!!

I don't understand some of the lukewarm reviews here. This is a very good Christmas album and definitely on par with last year's original "Maybe This Christmas" compilation.
Nettwork Records has been putting out some great Christmas music in recent years, they had a compilation about three years ago as well called "Christmas Songs" that I will review later.
I have been listening to this album for several weeks now and the following are the tracks that have grown on me:
"Donna And Blitzen" by Badly Drawn Boy is the best new Christmas song I have heard so far this year. It's an amazing track that grows on you with each listen. Give it some time, I was underwhelmed with it at first but you will be rewarded with repeated listening. Now I can't get it out of my head whenever I play it!
In fact, the entire album is like that. No song grabs you right away. You need to be patient with this material. This collection has a lot of subtleties that are well worth exploring
Starting from the top, Rufus Wainwright has an original song "Spotlight On Christmas" which is quite good. I'm going to have to check some other stuff out from this artist. Eisley's "The Winter Song" is interesting - I like it! The version of "O Holy Night" by Avril Lavigne & Chantal Kreviazuk is not bad either. Don't understand the negative comments here about the singing. Though the voice of the first singer does remind me of Meadow Soprano from the HBO series for some odd reason!
Next is a very intriguing song called "Xmas Cake" by Rilo Kiley. I have no idea who she is (or most of the artists on this album for that matter) but I'll have to check out some of her other work. Very well done track and probably the second best of this collection.
Now I just don't get the next song ("Silent Night").

I'll quick this simple. There are two gems on this collection: "Spotlight On Christmas" by Rufus Wainwright and "Donde Esta Santa Claus?" by Guster. Sixpence None The Richer's "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" is also enjoyable enough due to Leigh Nash's patented vocals.

I enjoy the variety of independent styles and the unique nature of the Christmas music. The instrumental touches on the Wainwright track and the Rilo Kiley track are fantastic, on their own worth the price of the CD. Harps and banjos, wow.
