I am giving this CD 5 stars, not because it's one of the greatest albums of all time, but because it achieves exactly what it aims for, and delivers. It is a really fun compilation of Christmas tunes by 80's hair bands. Plus, there are actually a few true gems included! I received this as a gift, didn't really think I would listen to it, but I enjoy it!

My only beef with this release is that there is NO liner note information at all, except which band/person the song is from. It would have been nice if at least the specifics of the artists who were with each band when the song was recorded, what year recorded, that kind of thing, was included-- I am sure this CD was culled from various existing recordings for the most part, which is fine, but I would like to know some basic details!

The standouts are:
-Danger Danger's "Naughty Naughty Christmas"-- obviously by the title is a nod to their biggest hit, but it's suprisingly not a rehash, it's actually one of the few original tunes on the disc, and it's a really good song, sticks in your head!
-Winger's "Happy Christmas (War is Over)"-- remake of the John Lennon classic. A really nice interpretation of the song, complete with a good solo, I am positive that's Reb Beach on the solo. (as should be)
-Dokken's 12 days of Christmas-- this song, more than any other, comes across as an attempt to redo a Christmas classic in the also classic sound of the band...it sounds like something pulled right from Tooth and Nail or Under Lock & Key, except it's a Christmas song! They totally Dokkenize it, it's actually over the top, but still fun.

I bought this christmas album early, and it really will be rock'n in the holidays. Skid row, Dokken, Queensryche, twisted sister, lita ford...I've died and gone to the 80's...excellent. The songs are classic christmas wrapped in heavy metal foil. Must have for christmas time, at least to annoy the neighbors or co-workers who listen to those god awful 24 hour christmas music stations...ugh. Shake them up with this one. Must have for the metal heads.

I won't take up your time with a long winded review.
I purchased this CD last week and I must tell you, it's a complete riot. The songs are extremely catchy and it's great fun for the holidays.

Fun 80's ish hair band Christmas album. I like most of the songs and bands. It doesn't sound like the Skid Row is the version with Sebastian Bach though. I love Christmas music of all kinds (well not new people) and this is a way to get my husband to listen too. Makes me smile when I listen to this CD.

This is an awesome cd - excellent guitar solos and its fun hearing my favorite 80s hair bands play Christmas tunes. It's definitely not all ballads - there are some roxkers on there too. Especially like Naughty Naughty Christmas - still stuck in my head and it's January 3rd. Great mix of tunes for your rockin' Christmas party - and a conversation starter! I bet someone will say "Is that Twisted Sister...?"

Our family favorite off this album is Skid Row's "Jingle Bells". My kids are ga-ga for it! They were singing it at the top of their lungs! Firehouse's "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree" is also great. And I've always found Dokken irresistible, so "Santa Claus is Comin to Town" is awesome! A surprise fave turned out to be one I never knew existed by Billy Idol called "Christmas Love".

The only reason I bought this CD was to have a copy of Stryper's 'Winter Wonderland' - but this is NOT the original (awesome) version where you hear Michael Sweet tell the rest of the band "Shine you guys!" because they don't want to sing Christmas Carols. That original version was SO GOOD. This is not... this is just a later day live recording or something. So be warned, if you were hoping for the original version of 'Winter Wonderland' - this is not it! The rest of the music is good and fun.
