A must have for the Christmas season!!!

At last - The Priests have recorded a Christmas album - and it was well worth the wait. Every song on this beautifully crafted and produced CD is a gem. Every song except the collaboration with Shane McGowan; sorry - it just doesn't work. The Bing Crosby/David Bowie version worked because Bowie proved he was more than just a rock singer. McGowan sounds as if he had one too many Guinnesses on the way to the studio. It might have worked well with another singer; sadly, this singer isn't it. That being said, the rest of the album is delightful. It's hard to pick a favourite but I might have to vote for "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen". Also, the version of "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" featuring just The Fathers is gorgeous. I can't say enough good things about this CD. Too bad SONY isn't promoting the heck out of it. It could become a Christmas classic for many families. Well done, Fathers - another beautiful CD!!

Christmas in the Drunk Tank

Personally I like the version of Little Drummer Boy with McGowan...he sounds exactly like you would expect him to sound, with one two many Guinesses in him on the way to the studio. He wouldn't be the same any other way!
