With few notable releases to compete with, the a cappella quintet's 2014 album is poised to become the top-selling holiday set for the second year.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, as the Billboard 200 chart begins to welcome the annual onslaught of Christmas albums to the tally. Leading the charge is Pentatonix's 2014 release, That's Christmas to Me, which vaults 40-19 with 23,000 ­equivalent-album units earned in the week ending Nov. 12 (up 80 percent), according to Nielsen Music. (The set was reissued Oct. 30 with five bonus tracks, which aids its rise.) It's one of 20 Christmas titles on the Nov. 28 tally -- a number that will likely increase in the march toward the Dec. 25 holiday.
