I am not the world’s biggest fan of Christmas music, but I thought I would give this one a listen since it features several of my favorite bands. The CD is well-done and is a more modern take on the Christmas classics. I like how each musician/band made the song their own without distorting the song into something unrecognizable. I will most definitely be picking up the “Holidays Rule” CD and listening to it throughout the Christmas season.
