Good music, but to religious for me
on December 18, 2003
For the past couple years I've seen the commercials on TV advertising Christmas music for Trans-Siberian Orchestra. For me, I thought it very reminiscent of Mannheim Steamroller, with its nice jazzy, up-beat tempos. So when I saw two of their albums, "Christmas Eve and Other Stories" and "The Christmas Attic" at my local music store, I didn't hesitate to buy both of them.
If you aren't into Christian music or some of the more religious Christmas carols, you sadly, like me, probably won't like the music. I prefer instrumental Christmas music because I'm not a religious person and although I can do "Silent Night", and others, I prefer not to have to listen to the words. (I must point out that I did like the instrumental pieces) Anyway, The CD is full of music that any fan of Mannheim Steamroller would probably greatly enjoy, with Christmas Carols that have a more religious connotation than I can handle (I think they might be originals as well which was kind-of neat).
