20th Century Masters: Christmas Collection features Southern rock/arena rock band .38 Special performing a number of holiday classics. The band keeps the music fairly lighthearted and fun, most notably with songs like the title track, "Jingle Bell Rock," and "Santa Claus Is Back in Town." Anyone unfamiliar with .38 Special's music will probably find this album less than interesting, though fanatics will surely find this a pleasant listen. A little brief with only ten songs. ~ Jason Birchmeier
