4 stars Forget Slade, forget Mariah Carey and forget Cliff Richards. When it comes to Christmas music you can't get any better than Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Brilliant compositions, fantastic musicianship, emotional vocals and some of the most beautiful melodies you'll ever hear. This is just some of the stuff that's in store for you between December 1st and December 25th.

With a good mixture of heavy and melodic songs, revisioned Christmas Carols and choir pieces, and vocal performances by singers of all different kinds of genres, the album remains fresh and exciting from start to finish. The mood and atmosphere it creates is amazing as well, and truly feels like Christmas.

With the exception that maybe one or two songs seem a bit pointless and filler, this is pretty much a masterpiece. However, TSO's biggest strength is also their biggest weakness. The fact that this is Christmas music makes you feel a bit stupid playing it in the middle of the Summer, therefore it only really sounds good at everyone's favourite time of the year.

But when December 25th comes around, light some candles, put on this album and open your presents with your loved ones. It is a truly amazing experience.

Valarius | 4/5 |
