ALBUMMER! 20: Taste of Christmas

Ho Ho Ho! It's Christmas time and what's a better gift to give than forcing six people to listen to an album that's absolute garbage? It's A Taste of Christmas, a compilation album of imitation Panic at the Discos shrieking for Christ. No nuance here.

The crew behind Two Minutes to Late Night are here to re-review some of the most critically reviled albums out there!

You guys need to look up some interviews with Benji from Skindred, as he's not "very Jamaican" when he talks. He's very Welsh.

I like how baby smooth Jordan's face is this episode, I'd get a giggle each time it'd zoom in on his camera.

I recognize waaaaay too many names on this compilation and the thousand yard stare resulting from it is terrifying.

Really hoping this comes back in 2022. Wasn't sure about it at first, but it's definitely become one of the best weekly shows on the site.

Making my first comment in 4 years of having premium to voice support for this show. I am really hoping this comes back next year. I’d love to see Drew on UPF as well, he is a gem.

Firstly i must say I hope the show comes back! i wasnt sure about it at first but it really grew into one of the shows i look forward to each week!

Secondly, true kingly behavior by young Jeremy selling Conor Oberst's number, just real dudes rock shit there. I would've done the exact same thing as a shitbag kid.

I need to get good at insults so that I can feel the rush of seeing Drew dress up as the thing I said he was.

I know I'm kinda late here, but I was most surprised to hear the melody to Sakamoto Kyu's 1961 hit "Ue wo Muite Arukou" in the chorus of "Jungle Balls". These men are true people of culture.

As someone who once owned a "Rock Against Bush" CD (the proceeds from which, I now understand, went towards the political efforts of EXACTLY the kind of people who, as the Albummer folks point out, now say "but look at Bush's cute paintings, his war crimes couldn't have been ALL bad"), the discussion around the War is Over cover had me laughing and cringing simultaneously in the best way possible.

Anyway, this series has been a delight, and I really hope Giant Bomb brings back Albummer in the new year.

I live for Drew’s cat’s cameos. These folks give me great fodder to make fun of musical genres I don’t like. I hope to see more of this show.

Listening to this was a lot of fun. Hope to see all of the Albummer crew in the new year. Have really enjoyed the show so far and look forward to hearing about more terrible albums in 2022.
