The kings of novelty deliver a king-sized holiday novelty record with Holidays in Dementia. Rhino may throw in a couple of obvious choices, such as Ray Stevens' "Santa Claus Is Watching You," Spike Jones' "Happy New Year," and Jona Lewie's minor masterpiece "Stop the Cavalry," but for the most part, Holidays in Dementia contains a selection of 17 unpredictable Christmas novelties. Some are good, some are terrific, some are outright awful, but it's almost all interesting, especially for fans of Dr. Demento and his ilk. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
