2 stars If you heard Trans-Siberian Orchestra's first album, Christmas Eve and Other Stories, there isn't much point to listening to this album. It is the album I find the least enjoyable of their Christmas Trilogy.

The main problem with this album is that it doesn't have any of their best instrumentals, and that has always been were Trans-Siberian Orchestra shone the strongest (especially on their Christmas albums, where the stories were less interesting). Without these, the album lacks much else to make it truly amazing. Really, it follows the formula of their first album, but with less success.

There's not much to be said about this album. Nothing in it is particularly offensive or outright bad (if you like Christmas music and theatrical music), but nothing stands out. The only song I ever really listen to off of this one is The Three Kings And I (What Really Happened), because I find the whole concept quite amusing.

If you are a fan of their music, this album will still be enjoyable, but otherwise there's really not all that much here.
