3.0 out of 5 stars Redundant, but nice for new fans October 15, 2009
By dliamt
Format:Audio CD
If you're new to Mannheim Steamroller, or just a casual fan who doesn't already own all of their CDs, this is a good "greatest hits" collection to get you up to speed. This two disc set offers a solid sampling of previously released material. It omits some essentials, such as "Deck The Halls" and "Silent Night," but those were already included on their previous Christmas compilation disc, so that's actually a good thing.

Steamroller's sound, for those five people out there who still haven't heard of them, runs the gamut from traditional acoustic to highly synthetic. Personally, I think they're at their best when they stick to the acoustic style. Their classic takes on songs like "We Three Kings," "Still Still Still", "O Holy Night" and "Little Town Of Bethlehem" are absolutely beautiful, perfectly capturing the quieter, poignant side of Christmas. But what Mannheim is probably most famous for are their up-tempo synth-pop versions of Christmas songs. Frankly, I find these tend to be a bit more "hit or miss", and definitely more of an acquired taste (I enjoy most of them, but I know plenty of people who get turned off by the highly synthetic, and admittedly cheesy/outdated, sound.) The good news is, this 2 disc collection shows off all of Mannheim's styles, so while you may not like some tracks, you'll certainly find at least a good number of them that you do like.

My only real complaint with this collection is that it offers absolutely nothing new to entice long-time fans, and ultimately comes off as little more than an easy way for the Steamroller to pad its wallet. I understand that this is meant to be a retrospective, but I had hoped for at least a FEW new tracks. As it is, there's simply no reason to buy this if you already own their older albums.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointment! December 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this after I went to the concert a couple of weeks ago...wish I had looked more carefully. I thought that the 25th Anniversary Collection would be the best of the best but it was a huge let down. None of the great electronica music. None of what they're known best for!

Once again, Great music and we can also sing along during the holiday season. We listened to Christmas music from just after Thanksgiving through early January. These songs make us want to sing along.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in this album. Very few of the songs had the beat/tempo/sound that I expected of a Mannheim Steamroller rendition.

4.0 out of 5 stars great compilation. June 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you don't own the original three Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CDs, buy this great 25th Anniversary compilation with the Christmas Celebration (5 stars for that one) and you'll have most of all the original tracks.

I love Christmas music. It is so peaceful and Mannheim Steamroller knows just the right way to make it sound. I now have it on my Android.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun with a lot of 'new' arrangements and 'old' favorites
It is both nostalgic and new at the same time. A Bach meets the 20th century mix. Fun with a lot of 'new' arrangements and 'old' favorites, kind of meshed togather.
