AllMusic Review by

Let's face it, hearing Christmas music has become as certain as the sunrise, so if you have to hear it, it might as well have a bit of funk and soul. Coming to the rescue is Icon: Motown Christmas, a compilation filled with holiday cuts like the Jackson 5's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," Marvin Gaye's "I Want to Come Home for Christmas," and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' "It's Christmas Time." No matter how curmudgeonly you are about the holidays, this collection of timeless artists performing some wintry classics is sure to make your Christmas a more festive affair.
