I love Helen Love and I love the Ramones and I love Christmas songs. How could I not love this record? Answer: I DO love this record.
I don't expect it to get much airplay due to the untimeliness of our getting it (just a few months too early for Christmas records). Expect to hear it a LOT late this year, and count on hearing it on Yule Shoot Your Eye Out!
How does it sound? Well, it's pretty much par for the course for Helen Love, lotsa samples, maybe even more than usual. Super, but not transcendent. (Well, they can't ALL be!)
