AllMusic Review by

Like its 2012 incarnation, the 2013 edition of Now That's What I Call Christmas offers up a generous (and easy to mainline) sugar plum-lined treasure trove of yuletide cheer that represents each and every candy cane-dusted pocket of the holiday pop spectrum. The collection includes three discs of contemporary pop confections like the Pogues' "Fairytale of New York," Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" (in both its 1984 and 2004 versions), and Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You," and golden-age classics from the likes of Bing Crosby ("White Christmas"), Dean Martin ("Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!"), and Frank Sinatra ("Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"), resulting in a near perfect storm of holiday earworms from multiple eras.
