Details Release Date: Nov 01, 2011; Lead Performance: Justin Bieber; Genre: Holiday; Production: Island Def Jam

The Biebs' gentle set of gentile carols on Under the Mistletoe isn't coal-lump bad; it's more like a dorky sweater from Nana with a 20 in the pocket. Two originals, ''Mistletoe'' and ''Only Thing I Ever Get for Christmas,'' are sleigh-ride-smooth R&B ­jangles, but the classics bring no cheer — worst is the rap-wrapped ''Drummer Boy,'' on which Bieber spits some of the looniest white-boy rhymes off the shores of Lonely Island: ''I'm so tight I might go psycho/Christmas time, so here's a recital.''
