The album includes humorous takes on several holiday favorites, but it's the songs from Meatwad that shine amongst the rest. "Feliz Navidad" starts out innocently enough until Meatwad decides to tinker with the lyrics (thus creating "Meat Navi-Wad"). "Little Drummer Machine Boy" goes from humorous techno keyboard beats to a hilarious all-out Neal Peart-esque drum solo. "All I Want for Christmas is my One Front Tooth" lets us in on the secret behind Meatwad only having one tooth.
The standout song though is "Frosty the Red-Nosed Snowman", a gut-busting lyrical mess of Frosty and Rudolph, with additional themes like "Mary Had A Little Lamb", the Batmobile and Lipps Inc's "Funky Town". Not to mention Carl trying to time his part right and failing miserably (twice) to very comical effect.
Unfortunately, there are a few songs that aren't up to par with the rest of the album. Carl's two "I'll Be Home For Christmas" songs entice a few laughs, but overall they left me wanting more "Carl Moments". Also, the album is pretty short. Just 12 songs (13 including the hidden song) that come in at around 37 minutes or so. It would have been nice to see a few more tracks in there, but more may have been too much of a good thing.
These minor qualms aside, the album is sure to make you laugh. Boxy Brown gets to drop some rhymes about Christmas racism, Shake tries to spice up the story of Jesus' birth, and everyone chimes in for an epic "O Holy Tonight". If you don't mind the overall short length, I recommend giving this album a look.
Most of the songs are very funny, but the cover of "Feliz Navidad" is my favorite (and that's my favorite Christmas song anyway). Also good is "Hark! the Herald Angels Rap," a song that starts out simply enough, but is quickly highjacked by Meatwad's buddy Boxy Brown. Shake puts his own spin on the nativity story with "Twas the Night Before Jesus" (who knew that hippies, Voldemort and the Cannonball Run were involved?) And, the folksy blues, "I Sure Hope I Don't Have To Beat Your Ass This Christmas" is also a stand out.
I love the show and it's craziness and naturally this was a purchase I'd been wanting to make for awhile, I just always put it off because I wasn't sure I needed, finally after I got sucked into the Christmas cheer, I decided I needed some ATHF enlightening and this really helped.
One caveat: I've played this for people who know nothing about ATHF (yes, they do exist...) and the record just doesn't work that well if you don't know the show. If you don't know the show, then make it your New Years resolution to start watching or recording the re-runs on Adult Swim, learn the wonders of Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad, and then get this album in time for Xmas 2010!
