4 stars Another Christmas album by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra? I'm not complaning!

As noted before from my review of 'The Christmas Attic', both that album, and this album resieved 4 stars for different reasons. 'The Christmas Attic' for the colaberation of the songs, and this album for the songs themselfs. In this album, each song is just amasing. The songs found on this album are superier to that of their past Christmas albums, and are classics for the Christmas Season.

The highlights of this album are 'The Lost Christmas Eve', the very famouse 'Wizards in Winter' (Made populer by an internet video of a house's light show of christmas lights), 'Christmas Night in Blue', 'Christmas Jam', 'What is Christmas?', 'The Wisdom of Snow', 'Wish Liszt (Toy Shop Madness)', 'Back to a Reason, Pt. 2', 'What Child is This?' and finaly 'Christmas Canon Rock'. All these songs are masterpeases for the christmas season, it's hard not to love and enjoy this album. Normaly, with all these songs, it's hard not giving this a complete masterpeace rating of 5 stars....but there are some draw backs to the album.

The first is that I find this album a bit long. There are 23 songs on the album, and it only needs to have 12 tops. Alot of the other songs on this album seem as though they're filler songs. If they made this a dubble album and split all the songs onto two discs, it would have been much more enjoyable to listen. The songs on here that are good are just amasing, and those songs that arnt feel as though it's just filling time.

None the less, the whole album is enjoyable to listen to, and makes a perfict album to listen to for the christmas time. For those of us that get tiered of hearing the same old christmas songs over and over again, yet still want some christmas songs to get you in the mood for the season, this album is just perfict. It gives us a refreshing and new outlook on the traditional Christmas songs.

This album earns 4 stars from great christmas song. Although unlike the Christmas Attic, the way everything was put together weakens the album. Had it been put together more like the Christmas Attic, it would have easily reseaved 5 stars, but the album falls short from the make up of the great songs.
