4 stars This is an excellent album with its own originality definetly. Just like other TSO albums, you wouldn't think distorted, screaming and leading guitars would go well with the topic of CHRISTMAS. The melodies on this cd are very good especially the instrumentals such as christmas jam and wizards in winter. They do a good job of obtaining the heaviness and power without staining the holiday feeling.

However, there is a reason i give this four stars instead of five. The vocals. I'm not saying Robert evan, Michael Lanning and all the other countless singers they use aren't good singers, just that they're not the best singers for this type of music i think. The tone and style they sing the lyrics in makes them sound very cheap and cheesy. This only goes for a small number of the songs howeve(such as What is Christmas?). Also, some of the songs seem somewhat dark and creepy. Again, thats only for a few songs on the album. Thats cool if you're into that sort of thing. I like it personnally but when i want to listen to christmas music i want to feel happy.

Still, i highly recommend this cd to anybody. It IS that good i think. All the instrumental work is perfect. Beautiful piano, powerful guitar and um.... ok vocals.
