AllMusic Review by

Mostly made up of covers of classic rock & roll Christmas songs, Holiday Cheer loses a little something in the translation. Although the renditions are faithful to the originals, the appeal of some tracks (especially "Do They Know It's Christmas?") lies in the original performances, and it's just plain bizarre to hear session singers instead of Duran Duran and Bono. Although the record is nothing terrible, this is one of the weaker entries in the holiday music canon.
