I'll admit that I'm a pretty big fan of The Polyphonic Spree. It's hard not to cheer for the ultimate musical underdog... a band impossibly large, that never gets radio play since you can't really figure out what genre to plug them into. Holidaydream is lush at times, simple and precious at others, even dark and a little dreary that perfectly reflects the hypothetical grumpy dad who's putting toys together at 4am on Christmas Eve. (Not me... I'd never procrastinate like that). Give it a listen.

Bought this CD based on the review in a national magazine. Interesting dissonant sound, but before it got half way through our first hearing while decorating the Christmas tree my wife declared that she'd had enough and I should change discs. Doesn't convey a sense of celebration.

Tim DeLaughter has been singing Christmas songs at every one of the ten Holiday Extravaganzas (aka The Christmas Shows) the band has performed, usually surrounded by a stage full of children. Here he recorded those songs in dreamy, slow versions with harp and percussion in a manner that's quite inspiring and listenable.

It is perfect. It is Polyphonic. What more could you ask for?
If you are a fan, you will love this.
If you are not a fan, well I'm not sure why anyone is not a fan, so I can't really help you there.
Makes me want to put on a white robe and dance through fields of daises, or pine trees.

One of the most captivating Christmas discs I've ever run across. Breathtakingly beautiful vocals with lots of twists on both the new and the old favorites. I still haven't stopped listening to it and it is near the end of January!

If you enjoy traditional Christmas music in new, non-traditional arrangements, this may be just what you are looking for. The Polyphonic Spree has grown musically through the years.Their vocal choir has always been a focal point of their work.This album showcases the talents of their instrumentalists very nicely. Production is clean and clear. The high energy of most of the songs is just what I needed during the long month of December!

I took my family to see the Polyphonic Spree Holiday show in Philadelphia on the day of the Sandy Hook massacre. It know it must have been incredibly difficult for Tim and the rest of the Spree to get through the show with their hearts broken, as were all of ours, but it just shows the power of the positive, life-affirming force of the Polyphonic Spree. Receiving this CD from "Santa Claus" on Christmas was a beautiful treat, and my family listened to this CD (along with Sufjan Stevens "Songs for Christmas" all through the day.

Holidaydream is an excellent holiday recording by the Polyphonic Spree. The problem is that the music is marred by the terrible pressing of the lp. I had to return a couple of copies due to the distortion, warp, and general noise throughout the lp. They would probably save a lot of money if they went with a better pressing plant. If you buy this and you plan to listen to it just be ready to return it for a better pressing.
