X Christmas Rocks
Posted December 19, 2008
By ty9415049,


I love the X series and it rocks! TFK gets things started by rocking all the ornaments off the tree with 'Jingle Bell Rock' which has to be a favorite just because there aren't many Christmas songs that use that heavy of guitar. 'Gloria' rocks but is really just about a girl- the Gloria chorus at the end is pretty lame. 'Christmas Shoes' is indeed a lovely addition and is way better than the Newsong version. That's right I said it, it's better! Next is Jars of Clay which is enjoyable but not very rocking, that is followed up by the one track that freaks out everybody who listening to the CD with me in my car. I love 'This time of Year' because it's not your typical Christmas song. August Burns Red's version of 'Carol of the bells' is great and I'm super glad they didn't scream anything because that would have probably ruined the song. KJ-52's song is one of my favorites even though nobody else seems to like it. How can you not bob your head to that crazy beat? Capital Lights knocks the whole CD out of the park with their song 'His favorite Christmas story' which is by far the best song on the CD because it has such a touching story tied with a simple melody and solid chord progression. The last two songs are nothing special but they are a fine ending to a great Xmas CD. My only questions are where was Stellar Kart's and Eleventyseven's Christmas songs? No relient K either? I also have to admit that it is sort of lame to include "evergreen" because they're just trying to capitalize on Switchfoot's success in the mainstream and that song is like 10 years old. Whatever. Overall great Xmas songs that you won't find on most radio stations!
