About: The "Forget You" singer released his first holiday album this year. It's a full 14 tracks, which means you're definitely getting your money's worth. He also managed to fit in Rod Stewart, Straight No Chaser and The Muppets into his album.
Noteworthy tracks: "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," which features Straight No Chaser, has just got to be good. "Merry Christmas Baby," a duet with Rod Stewart, has just got to be interesting.
Status: To be released Oct. 30
Amazon.com price: $9.99
Brandon anticipation (on a scale of 1-10): It's just a 6 for the album as a whole, but a 9 for the duet with Straight No Chaser, one of the best A cappella groups I've ever heard. Nice choice.
