10. O Holy Night (4:11)The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year is a new collection of Christmas standards performed by Scott Weiland, front man for Stone Temple Pilots. In the spirit of the greatest holiday crooners, The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year covers a variety of styles including big band swing, orchestrated ballads, reggae, bossa nova and more, all delivered with surprising ease by Scott Weiland.
Rather than resurrect last year's thread
, I figured I'd start a clean one. Scott Weiland
, of course, is the front man for Grunge favorites Stone Temple Pilots
. But, for Christmas, he plays it pretty traditional crooner style as he demonstrated on his 2009 single "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"
. And fans may recall that the Stone Temple Pilots also provided a fairly traditional reading of "Christmas Time Is Here"
for a KROQ Almost Christmas concert some years back.
Right now, Rhino records
is offering a pre-order price of $11.99 for this one, though you may want to factor in shipping costs to get a fair comparison with the Amazon pre-order price.
