If you're anything like me then you hate the day after halloween when every radio station starts playing the same crappy christmas music 24 hours a day. I really hate the renditions of christmas songs where the lead is just some obnoxious pop diva hollering at me set to a slightly jazzy arrangement.
That being said, some of the traditional christmas music that's out there is actually good and the songs themselves are pretty good. I'm just sick of being beaten over the head by them on pop stations. This album is the remedy to all that ails christmas music. The traditional christmas songs that you love have been re-arranged by David Wallimann in a way that rock, progressive, metal, and fusion, fans will really appreciate. The tunes are all in there but their treatment adds some really interesting flavors that a seasoned ear will appreciate.
If you're looking to put on some christmas music for the drive to work around the holidays or to play while the family decorates the christmas tree but you can't bear the thought of the terrible radio malarkey then this is the album for you. Those of us with an ear for creative and interesting music but who still harbor some sentiment for traditional christmas music owe Mr. Wallimann our gratitude.
