Overview

Released to coincide with the classically inclined, Yule-loving, progressive metal powerhouse's 2012 performances of its multi-platinum Last Christmas Eve rock opera, Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night) represents the first new collection of holiday music from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra since 2004. The five-song EP begins appropriately with a pair of instrumentals, "Winter Palace" and the title track, both of which are muscular, meticulous, and steeped in the kind of ornate, wintry melodrama that serves as the group's foundation. The remainder of the EP is relegated to non-instrumental cuts, including the theatrical praise-pop anthem "I Had a Memory," and a pair of stage-ready ballads in the sentimental "Someday" and the uplifting lullaby "Time You Should Be Sleeping."

I should have realized because of the price, this CD is about 15 minutes long. This site gives what is on the CD but apparently not how long for each selection. Because of the price, it can not really be called a rip-off, but it is hardly worth getting up to put it in the player. And, this is Christmas music? I do not see that way. So a double disappointment! I will probably not buy another CD from this orchestra. And I will also buy other selections from a site that gives play time. You can teach an old dog new tricks.
