Xcellent Xmas Music!

by AW on 12/3/2004

I had only heard some of Trans-Sib Orch's music and liked what I did hear. I was surprised by the music on these CD's. It's quite an assortment. Rock Opera one minute, classical the next, Jazz in-between. All of it great. The DVD was a musical short story that nearly made me burst into tears (yes, I cry at weddings!) This set is a terrific change from the Bing Crosby and the classics. (not that they are bad) Trans Sib is different and is going to be played all Dec long at my house! Rock and Jazz lovers will love this CD set. Read More

In 2004, Trans-Siberian Orchestra finished their "Christmas trilogy" with the massive -- some would say ponderous -- The Lost Christmas Eve. Wasting none of the holiday season's precious shopping time, the Christmas Trilogy box set landed two weeks after that album, giving the band's loyal fan base a set to give -- some would say inflict -- to their friends. Then again, maybe they'll just want to hold on to the set since there's a DVD with appearances by Jewel and Michael Crawford and the lavishly illustrated booklet includes all the lyrics and background stories. You really should dabble in Trans-Siberian's dramatic, huge world of Christmas music through the eyes of classic rock before laying down the money for the set. If you just need a bit of this 60-piece, the first album is the most inspired, but it's not enough for most who get hooked. Although the next two albums gave diminishing returns, Trans-Siberian producer/mastermind Paul O'Neill kept pouring his heart into the music and always offered some genuine thrills. Great presentation and a packed DVD make up for a lot of note-spinning on the third disc, and what was a wintry night made for besides curling up with a precious, hope-filled story, no matter how cumbersome? ~ David Jeffries
