The story that unfolds during Trans-Siberian Orchestra's third Christmas CD deals with angels visiting New York City, which gives this orchestrated rock group a chance to draw upon a wide variety of modern music. The jaunty "Christmas Nights in Blue" sounds like it was influenced by Louis Jordan and is the coolest moment the orchestra has ever offered, while the driving "Christmas Jam" is Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein" with some sleigh bells. Not that the group was ever "traditional," but the songs here sound less influenced by the old Christmas standards, and they're generally more fun and uplifting. The quiet numbers are delicate and beautiful, and there are a number of them in the album's fourth quarter. The problem with the album is it's nearly choked with too much material, with a great number of the songs existing solely to move the story along. That's when the album gets too emotive, too forced, and too Electric Light Orchestra without Jeff Lynne. Good new is, whittle out the dreck and you've still have plenty left to enjoy. Even though it won't win them any new fans, The Lost Christmas Eve is rumored to be an "end of the trilogy" album. If so, the trilogy ends with a big, theatrical bang, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra fans wouldn't have it any other way.
I have seem TSO in concert 3 times and they are unbelievable. If you haven't seen them you have to put in on your list of things to do especially if it is around Christmas time, they will put you in the Christmas spirit. I have everyone of their albums and listen to them throughout the year.
I recently attended a Trans-Siberian Orchestra on 12/10/06 in las vegas. It was my first time seeing them. It was by far the most incredible show I've ever seen. The band came out later and signed autographs and gave out picks. To listen to the music and not see the show your only getting half the entertainment. This is a must see show.
i have currently been to 3 of the Trans Siberian consterts and they are wild! i am right now in love w/ Angus Clark..the WAY hot gutiar player for them..*sigh* he is soo dreamy! They are the best classical rock you will EVER get! 5 stars EASY! I can't wait for their new c.d
