AllMusic Review by

Cool Christmas is a solid collection of recent original Christmas compositions by contemporary artists who hover between alternative music credibility and mainstream rock recognition. Older tales like The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" and Lou Reed's "Xmas in February" sit comfortably with Barenaked Ladies' "It's Christmas Time (oh yeah)," and Flaming Lips' odd "Christmas at the Zoo." Includes, among others, Throwing Muses, They Might Be Giants, Joni Mitchell, and Daniel Lanois.
