Beethoven's Last Night

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra's first non-holiday-themed album, Beethoven's Last Night, incorporates some of the composer's most noted pieces with original ones that peer into Beethoven's psyche. Pieces like "What Is Eternal," "What Good This Deafness," and "Last Illusion" update Beethoven's dramatic, portentous style, while "Requiem (the Fifth)" and "Fur Elise" lend themselves surprisingly well to the orchestra's stylized fusion of classical and rock music. Fans of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's other work won't be disappointed by Beethoven's Last Night's theatrical, orchestral song cycle.
I admire the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and I also admire Ludwig van Beethoven. When you put them two together it is... GREAT! If you don't have the Requiem(The Fifth) music video you should get it. Beethoven(the song) great. Or just get the whole album! Bye!
The first non-Christmas Trans-Siberian Orchestra album proved itself to be fantastic. Beethoven's Last Night is Paul O'Neill's interpretation of what may have happened to Beethoven during his last night on Earth. Throughout this story, he is haunted and encouraged by his past, tested by Mephistopheles, and comforted by Fate. As a whole, this is possibly the most well-organized TSO album. For those expecting the usual flashy guitar work will be a bit dissappointed however, as this album is much more focused on the whole rather than the individual. Even so, it does include some of the band's best instrumentals. Wonderful for fans of Progressive Rock, Metal, Classical Music, or just plain rock n roll.
T.S.O Has to be one of the most AMAZING groups out there if you like classical and Rock or even if you don't these guys are great!! If you have a chance to see there show live DO IT!! The ONLY other concert that equaled theres was Pink Floyd...
