2009 two CD release includes a 68 full color illustrated booklet. Five years since their last release, Trans-Siberian Orchestra return with a double album of all new material. Nightcastle is the Capra- esque story of someone changing their life for the better. Since its first tour in 1999, TSO has been one of the most successful acts in the concert business, consistently rating in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and audience attendance. In that time, TSO's annual tours have become a must-see tradition for rock-centric holiday revelers, attracting a uniquely all-ages audience captivated by their cross-genre blending of metal and progressive rock, classical themes and great storytelling, with unequalled staging and pyrotechnics.

If you're a fan of the band, getting the actual CD is recommended on this one. Comes in a double digi-pack with 68 page booklet, double CD. We've grown accustomed to a full story and detailed booklet from band leader Paul O'Neill and this one does not disappoint.
Band consists of over 25 musicians including Paul O'Neill, Chris Caffery, Alex Skolnick, Al Pitrelli, Johnny Lee Middleton, Jeff Plate, Anna Phoebe, Robert Kinkle. Writing credits are dominiated by O'Neill and Oliva, with contributions by Pitrelli, Caffery, along with Mozart, Chopin, Orff, Beethoven, Grieg and Bach.
The double album includes a mesh of genres with Theatrical type pieces, intense vocal - piano performances, a great acoustic guitar track, and of course, some heavy rockers. The first few tracks set the stage of the story of the 7 year old and her wise grandfather, full story is quite interesting and worth taking a read. Then on track 4, "The Mountain", the Savatage in TSO crawls out with a nod back to the classic "HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING"! Very cool. Other Savatage "moments" include "Mozart and Memories (from Dead Winter Dead album), and "Believe" (first appearing on the "Streets A Rock Opera").
There a number of high energy "classical / Rock- metal" pieces TSO is famous for, including Bach's Toccata - Carpimus Noctem, Grieg's Hall of the Mountain King, Mozart on Mozart and Memories, Beethoven and Chopin on Moonlight and Madness, Orff's famous Carmina Burana, and what I consider the "hit anthem" on this record "NUTROCKER".
For those of you who do not know SAVATAGE - shame on you! Go to [...].
Overall a 9/10.
