Home For Christmas

‘N Sync

Home is the last place these pop-aholics will be at Christmas: ‘N Sync were on such a tight touring schedule in 1998, it’s a wonder they even had time to record this disc in time for the holidays. The standard carols—“The First Noël,” and “The Christmas Song”—aren’t nearly as much fun as the original tracks here, but the a cappella version of “O Holy Night” is by far the masterpiece, and proof that the boys are more than just hyper-pretty faces. In fact, their superbly blended harmonies save what could have been ill-fated attempts to put a ’90s R&B spin on songs like “In Love on Christmas” and the title track. “The Only Gift” and “Under My Tree” are addictive despite being overly cute, and you’ll have a hard time getting “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” out of your head. Keep in mind that Christmas CDs belong in the background, let go of your anti-pop prejudices for just one day, and you’ll be bopping along with the boys in no time.
