Let It Snow Baby...Let It Reindeer

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Relient K's holiday album is culled from two different sources; seven tracks are new recordings, while the album's bulk is taken from a previous release, 2003's Deck the Halls, Bruise Your Hands. Accordingly, listeners are treated to two different sounds -- the straight-ahead pop/punk of the band's early years, and the slick sounds of their post-Capitol debut. One can only assume that Let It Snow Baby...Let it Reindeer is geared toward existing fans only, many of whom already own 60-percent of this album. Still, it's still nice to hear the difference a few years can make, as Relient K has aged rather quickly and rather well since the group's previous Christmas offering. ...

Relient K's holiday album is culled from two different sources; seven tracks are new recordings, while the album's bulk is taken from a previous release, 2003's Deck the Halls, Bruise Your Hands. Accordingly, listeners are treated to two different sounds -- the straight-ahead pop/punk of the band's early years, and the slick sounds of their post-Capitol debut. One can only assume that Let It Snow Baby...Let it Reindeer is geared toward existing fans only, many of whom already own 60-percent of this album. Still, it's still nice to hear the difference a few years can make, as Relient K has aged rather quickly and rather well since the group's previous Christmas offering. Occupying the spotlight is Matt Thiessen, who sings the pre-existing carols with the same snot-nosed bravado as countless other acts but tackles the newer cuts with an improved range and delivery. Having climbed into the upper echelon of punk bandleaders in recent years, Thiessen is now a responsible frontman, flipping into his falsetto during "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and helming a surprisingly catchy rendition of "Sleigh Ride." The latter song also features a slew of varied tempos and textures, two important stipulations for creating an engaging Christmas album. We've heard these songs before, often to an incalculable extent, so Relient K's unique renditions are as gratifying as they are slickly produced. Don't expect Let It Snow Baby to pack the same holiday punch as The Beach Boys' Christmas Album although "Auld Lang Syne" does feature some spot-on a cappella, but rather enjoy the record for what it unabashedly is: a solid record for returning fans, and a harmlessly appealing listen for everyone else.

    A reviewer

    I borrowed this CD from my daughter in hopes of getting into the Christmas spirit. It was so good, I had a hard time giving the CD back! The music is super and the songs are both inspiring, and some are very funny too. There's a lot of talent in this group. Pop this CD in the car player when you're in heavy traffic, and you'll be the only one on the road singing and smiling.

    A Fun and Positive Christmas Album!

    This is one of my favorite Christmas albums I have heard thus far! I have always loved Relient K, and I have been hearding several of their Christmas songs on the radio, and I love em! I have heard mellower classic carols and also some fun energetic renditions of other classic Christmas songs, such as their version of 12 Days of Christmas. I love that one! That's one of my favorites on this. I like how they also add in some of their own lyrics in between the choruses and verses in some of the songs. They even have a couple of their own home made Christmas songs to share too. If you like a Christmas album that is both fun and partly mellow, with an underlying positive message of hope and love, definitely check this out. You shant be disappointed. It's good holiday fun!

    This cd was so fun to listen to. They have so many different song types. Fun and enthusiastic; soft and calming; heavy and thrilling. I enjoyed it very much. Relient K knows how to make a person feel joyful with their music. It's an excellent christmas cd and i highly recomend buying it. You wouldn't regret it :)

    Christmas must have

    let it Snow let it Reindeer is way better than RK's previous christmas album. it has all of those songs and more. I really enjoyed their new stuff, and for all those RK fanatics, this CD is able to be listened to all year round. It completes the season as well as my year. I love Relient K. They are so versatile and the fact that they can successfully make Christmas music into punk rock music amazes me.

    A bit bipolar

    Not too Christian, not too cheerful, not too creative, but at least only 1 1/2 songs are depressing... If you need some Christmas CD's and don't mind the guys yelling through a couple holiday songs that really are not scream material, you'll do OK with Reliant K. "12 Days" and "Nuttin" are fun, but I think this creative group should have put more thought and prayer into this. Only one song, "Celebrate the Day" is a new message about Christ in Christmas, and even that is oddly self-centered.
