The deluge usually starts right about November, though as with all other holiday fare, it gets earlier and earlier every year: Christmas albums! From a host of superstars in the pop, country, indie, metal, Christian and R&B crowds! The 2012 slate is mighty indeed, featuring fully half of The Voice's esteemed judging panel (courtesy Blake Shelton and Cee-Lo Green), a potential Mom-wooing juggernaut from Rod Stewart, a beguiling 58-track monstrosity from alt-weirdo-genius Sufjan Stevens, inspired reverence from Lady Antebellum, inspired fist-pumped-ness from Trans-Siberian Orchestra, inspired WTF-ness from The Polyphonic Spree, and beyond. We'll add to this all season as more holiday hopefuls come rushing in -- there's a New Christmas Classic or two in here for sure. Enjoy.
