Just when you thought Bob Dylan had run out of ways to alienate his fanatical fanbase there’s this: a deeply sincere album of Christmas songs.

Sean Curnyn at First Things offers a sneak preview:

The most immediate thing one notices is that Bob Dylan has opted to go the most traditional route he could have chosen. The song selection includes everything from “O Come All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fideles)” (and yes, he does the Latin too) to “Here Comes Santa Claus.”

You can listen to clips here.

UPDATE: It seems like the spoil sports at Amazon have taken the clips down. It was fun while it lasted.
