  • Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Christmas is a time of celebration, family, and theatrical rock! The Trans-Siberian Orchestra's fifth production, The Lost Christmas Eve, has all the riff-based carols of the band's previous fare, but this year, it seems a little forced. Maybe finding new ways to sing about snow has become trying, or maybe topping the classic Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 is simply too arduous. Their latest offers all the TSO standards: instrumentals, rock-pop scorchers, and soothing originals that fit as comfortably at home as when they're played by an old church organist. Songs like "The Lost Christmas Eve," "What Child Is This?", and "Christmas Cannon Rock" aren't exactly shockers, but they may force your body into an emotional explosion, Meatloaf-style. And isn't that what Christmas is all about?
