A Disney Channel Holiday

Various

If Santa listened to Disney Channel Holiday on his in-sleigh stereo system Christmas Eve, he would get a speeding ticket for sure: Like Radio Disney Jingle Jams and Radio Disney: Holiday Jams, Vol. 2 before it, Holiday revs the merry-making through the roof—it’s as if the Cheetah Girls, Hannah Montana, Christy Carlson Romano, and the Jonas Brothers chased their candy canes with Red Bulls before heading into the studio. Even the gentler numbers throw off a little red-and-green fizz—Corbin Bleu’s “This Christmastime,” a song he co-wrote, captures the spirit of the season but will get inside the boogie shoes of sentimentalists at the same time, and Jordan Pruitt’s “Celebrate Love” swerves likably away from solemnity despite the seriousness, and hopefulness, of its message. Kyle Massey cuts up on “Jingle Bells (A Hip-Hop Carol),” and Billy Ray Cyrus gets Rudolph running with a lighthearted twang; add it all up and you get a holiday disc no TV-watching 10-year-old should be without.
