Review - This Christmas

Artist: 98 Degrees

If manicured pretty boys fumbling through Christmas tunes rings your bell, then cozy up to "This Christmas," the latest from 98 Degrees. These four popsters take the "class" out of classics like "Little Drummer Boy," "Oh Holy Night" and "Silent Night" with overdoses of faux emotion and insincere arrangements. But Drew, Nick, Jeff and Justin don't stop there, working in their own stuff, such as "Christmas Wish" and "This Gift." Formulaic and sickeningly sweet, this drivel is about as welcome as a five-pound fruitcake.
