AllMusic Review by

MCA Special Products' Holiday Collection, Vol. 2 boasts a slightly bizarre lineup -- not every disc features Reba McEntire ("Away in a Manger"), Bill Medley ("The First Noel"), Dionne Warwick ("Oh Holy Night"), Melissa Manchester ("Silent Night"), Connie Stevens ("Every Day Should Be Christmas"), Belinda Carlisle ("God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"), James Earl Jones ("'Twas the Night Before Christmas"), Shaun Cassidy ("Silver Bells") and the Moody Blues ("What Child Is This?"). It's certainly not for all tastes -- in fact, I don't know what tastes it is for, come to think of it. Not that it's a bad compilation, either. In a weird way, it's quite entertaining and it would make for a nicely schizophrenic soundtrack to a holiday party.
