Beautiful instrumental music that comes with the story book and how every song fits in to the story. If you're looking for some different music for Christmas, this is the best bet!

From the enchanting cover art right through to the last notes of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," the last track, Christmas Eve and Other Stories is a rare delight.
In fact, although this is supposed to be a Christmas album, I find I can listen to it year 'round (as I am right now and it's August 31st).
You probably already know this from reading other reviews, but Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is the alter ego of Savatage, a mostly heavy metal/progressive rock band whose albums tend to lean toward the "concept" side of creativity, which is to say they're generally quite a few notches above most music these days...and often contain flashes of brilliance not found anywhere else on the planet.
There's a feeling I get every year around Christmastime, and TSO "director" Paul O'Neill (who produces Savatage's albums) captured it exactly on this CD. As a matter of fact, on TSO's web site, O'Neill writes, "I love writing stories and I've always been staggeringly fascinated with Christmas. It's such a magical time of the year. If you're walking down a New York City street around Christmastime and it starts to snow, the potential for magic can be felt in the air. That's what I tried to capture on this record, while bringing a fresh musical treatment to the holiday."
To capture that "magical" feeling on Christmas Eve and Other Stories, O'Neill took mostly traditional Christmas songs and infused them with electric guitar power and energy to create a majestic, emotional, captivating sound that tends to overwhelm me with emotion or awe (such as on the incredible "A Star To Follow" track or in the dynamic "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24" track, which also appeared on Savatage's Dead Winter Dead CD).

This cd was not what I expected at all - in part I believe that it was not described appropriately. I thought I was getting a dvd so when it arrived I decided my mother should watch it with me; but found out it was only a cd. So...ummmm....she did not like it! I tried to enjoy it but in truth; hated it. Sorry to you all who enjoyed it. Each to his own. $9.99 mistake.

I was disappointed with this cd. I'm a big fan of T-S O. Their instrumental music is so powerful but on this cd there's singing and it detracts from what I like about the group. It's not what I was expecting. I played the cd once and haven't played it since.

Wow, I just can't say enough good things about this CD! It is absolutely fantastic.....and I'm not easy to please. Brings Christmas into this century, without leaving the last one behind. Excellent. Marvelous. Incredible.

This is one of my favorite CD's, and you don't have to listen to it just at Christmas. I especially like the instrumental songs, some of the vocals aren't my favorite, but it's still great!

I really thought that Mannheim Steamroller was fantastic, until I heard TransSiberian Orchestra. A great deal of the music played around the holiday season that I had attributed to MS was actually TSO! I bought all the MS CD's, but could not find the music that prompted me to make the purchase (how embarrassing!).
Now with two holiday CD's, and a new Rock Opera ("Beethoven's Last Night") they cannot be beat! They are even better if you can get a chance to see them; they break into to touring groups, East and West. You never know who might make a guest appearance.
After years of grieving, it took the power of Rock and Orchestra to return my enthusiasm for the holidays. Paul O'Neill, Chris Caffrey, Mark Wood (check out his website for innovative new musical instruments!), thank you, bless you - you gave me something that cannot touched or held, but is as real and true as friendship, love and memories.

Unlike all of the other Christmas artist who try to copy classic Christmas songs the Trans-Siberian Orchestra completely reinvents them. Traditional songs on this CD are out into music unlike any other. The best songs are....wait all of them are good. This is a classic that will be cherished for years. I saw them in concert on December 27, 2003 and was completely blown away by their wonderful performance. Don't be fooled by these bad reviews that say that they are a washed out 80's rocked band. These guys are for real.
