Artist: Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Title: “The Christmas Trilogy” – Boxed Set
Label: Lava Records
Release Date: 11/2/2004
Genre: Holiday Rock
“The Christmas Trilogy” boxed set by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra was a great idea for the existing fan and those that for whatever reason are still finding themselves curious and unaware of what the group is all about. This set includes all three of the Holiday themed albums that were released as well as their DVD which was initially released around the time of the second album. Doing this made sense as it ties all of the threads together and makes it one cohesive story out of all the albums. It also gives you access to all of this music in one beautiful package. Wrapped in an ornately decorated book the CD’s and DVD sit comfortably and in the center is all of the lyrics for the albums and the stories that each brought to the listener. I enjoyed being able to focus on it as one giant epic as these recordings find regular rotations in my own CD player especially around the Holidays. The book also has several pages of photos which seem to have been taken from the various tour books.
As we have featured individual reviews of the CD’s and DVD already we are leaving musical commentary out of this and instead have provided links to these features for you to read at your leisure. We have also left off listing the tracks to avoid duplication.

This package comes with a very high recommendation level because it was a perfect mix of the music and the packaging. It is also very affordably priced and makes for the perfect Holiday gift.
