I'll Be Home For Christmas..."Is that a threat or a promise?"

--Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

Bob Dylan has just released, of all things, a Christmas album.

Christmas In the Heart

I'm really not sure what to make of all this (try his Must Be Santa). It might be better than David Archuleta's album of nearly the same name, but he ain't no Mitch Miller or Burl Ives when it comes to kicking out the Christmas tunes.

At least it's for charity... For samples and commentary, listen to:

Is Dylan's Heart Really In This 'Christmas'?

For those not especially enamored of Dylan's vocal "style," or who favor the sacred over the secular in any case, hey, there's always Pope Benedict's album coming out on November 29th...
