As the season is upon us (for much of the western world) I find that the only christmas music I can stand comes out of the 40s/50s and maybe a bit of pre-Beatles 60s. All modern albums i have ever listened have a hint of the ironic about them that kills it for me. So I ask, is it possible to make a good unironic christmas album now? Or have we reached the point of no return? For example, there is no possible way that the upcoming christmas album by Bad Religion is going to be a classic for future generations.
