Everything about Christmas With Weezer is explained in the title. Christmas With Weezer is a compliation of six good old fashion Christmas songs with the Weezer sound, and excitement. It's just old skool Weezer playing old skool Christmas songs, and it's amazing. After the summer release of 'The Red Album, ' I never imagined Weezer releasing something this amazing within a year.

Christmas lyrics are almost always extremely catchy, and Weezer's new songs are just that! Rivers Cuomo is amazing on this album. His voice is basically flawless, but in some songs, it was easy to tell he had a hard time singing high enough. If you want a song that's good, but sounds hard for Rivers to sing, listen to O Holy Night. Good job Rivers.
Overall Impression — 8
Being such a small album, and about Christmas one would think it's not that great, but hey, it sure is a hell of a lot better than Make Believe! The first track We Wish You a Merry Christmas has that Blue Album tone to it, with a nice little solo. The next two tracks are probably the best tracks on the album. The rest of the songs are also good, but I could get throught Christmas without them. The way Rivers sings the songs makes them sound so Christmas-ie. Thanks Weezer for releasing this amazing album of Christmas songs! Looking forward to more next year!
