Not perfect, but a great compilation, 13 Dec. 2004
Seth Cohen's famous made-up holiday, which combines Christmas and Hannukah, gets its own soundtrack. This is the third O.C. compilation to be released, but it is different in that it has two main themes to work from, instead of just a random compilation of unrelated tunes.
We're given covers of famous Christmas songs, such as Rooney's version of "Merry Christmas Everybody", some less positive Christmas songs, such as the Eels' "Christmas is going to the Dogs", and a rock version of a famous Hannukah song, Ben Kweller's "Rock of Ages".
The O.C. albums have always been a perfect way of discovering lesser known indie bands, and this CD is no exception. It is a fine addition to your collection, and if you own either or both of the last two O.C. CDS, this is a must have.
