First off, let's start by saying this ain't The B-52's but it's certainly great in it's own right. Fruitcake is a great track but the album has even better gems on it. Here are my personal faves in no particular order...

-Santa Je T'aime: An obvious homage to the great Serge Gainsbourg and his gal pal Jane Birkin's orgasmic '60s anthem Je T'aime... moi non plus which was banned in several countries upon it's release due to it's sexual content. It seems Santa's working overtime at the North Pole this Christmas ;)

-Christmas Conga (Jungle Bells): WOW! I LOVE THIS SONG!!! This track has an amazing jungle beat. I love the way Mr. Schneider and company chant " Ju-ju-ju-ju-jungle bells!". It's like Tarzan meets the Claus'

-Santa's Disco: Irresistible dark wave disco beat with haunting strings and an upbeat message "forget your Christmas wish cuz they're drinking like fish!"

-Teddy And Betty Yeti: WTF?!?! This is one of the craziest Christmas songs ever made and I LOVE IT!!!! So two yeti's are pissed that Santa keeps passing them by every Christmas even though they've been soooo good. Well Mr. Claus' time is up (along with the rest of his entourage). The yeti's take the dissing personal this year. They travel to the North Pole and go John Wayne Gacy on the entire Claus household/workshop.

The rest of the album is just as nutty and fun as I would hope you'd expect from a Fred Schneider Christmas record and is definitely worth picking up!

I liked it. It brought back so many awesome memories of old school B52's. Love the beat and its just a fun song to bounce to. Their other songs are amazingly fun. Superions will rock it out baby. Love it all. Keep them coming.

First off, this is not the B-52's. Secondly, if you don't apprecaite cheesy, "so bad its Awesome" songs, then this is not for you.

Love this so much. Greatest Xmas song since "Grandpa's Last Xmas" by the Vandals.

The song is a cute little spoof about the ubiquitous Christmas fruitcake. I doubt if I'll add it to my Christmas playlist, but it was pleasant enough to listen to a couple of times.

Extremely repetitive with a heavy beat no less. What has happened to Christmas songs? Even for FREE this is not good.

One of the funniest Christmas songs since Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer. You will need to listen to this song and form your own opinion.

This was awful. The B52s are a fun sound but the quality of writing and the music is repetitive (in a bad way) and boring. I already deleted it. Glad it was free.
