Biography

To know how Paul O’Neill came up with the idea for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, you have to go back to when he was a teenager. "I was in awe when I first saw The Who do ‘Tommy’ and I said I want to do this, except way, way bigger," O’Neill recalled, a mischievous bit of glee in his voice. Ironically, O’Neill’s grand vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra ... Read more in Amazon's Trans-Siberian Orchestra Store

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 GREAT tracks, 3 Okay October 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First things first, I should say that I'm a long time fan of TSO's Christmas albums. I think they've revolutionized the Holiday genre in a way that has not been done since the 1950's. I love the drama, I love the rock sound, I love the classical music influence, I love everything about it. I am less of a fan, however, of TSO's non-Christmas albums. Beethoven's Last Night and Night Castle (2 CD) were disappointments for me. The good news is that the overall sound of this album is more akin to "Lost Christmas Eve" than "Night Castle" BUT it lacks a traditional holiday sound. On one hand I like that--because cover songs can get tired and boring--however on the other, it makes these tracks a little more difficult to mix into a holiday playlist. "Christmas Canon" or "Christmas Eve-Sarajevo" were classics for their new style but traditional melodies and Christmas-themed lyrics. There isn't a lot that's explicitly related to Christmas here, but at least 2 of the tracks i'm in love with (the others might grow on me) and will no doubt be adding them to my holiday playlist.

Here is what I thought, track by track.

WINTER PALACE - 3.5/5 - An instrumental Sarajevo-esque rock-enthused piano track. Sounds like an intro to one of their concerts and I have no doubt that it will be used as such. It's not personally one of my favorites because it seems to lack that "holiday" sound. Still, it is one of the better tracks on the EP.

DREAMS OF FIREFLIES - 5/5 - THERE IT IS! Same rock-infusion as the previous song, but this is much more holiday sounding to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreams Of Fireflies November 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
After the 2009 release of Night Castle - which was an unwelcome departure from the magical Christmas music TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA is best known for - the group led by producer, composer, and lyricist Paul O'Neill has returned to what they do ever so well with a new batch of soon-to-be holiday favourites. Mainstays Jon Oliva on keyboards, Al Pitrelli and Chris Caffery on guitars, and Roddy Chong on violin, are all firmly in place for this must-have, five-track EP. Dreams Of Fireflies (On A Christmas Night) begins with a pair of instrumentals: `Winter Palace' and the title track. Much like the absolutely brilliant `Wizards In Winter', both new songs are instantly recognizable as TSO, and immediately kindle the festive spirit in young and old alike. `I Had A Memory' features inviting vocalist Erika Jerry echoing "Hallelujah" and urging everyone "to trust like a young child believes." Tim Hockenberry takes the microphone on `Someday', resulting in unavoidable goose-bumps and teary eyes, as he pays the most loving tribute to his parents. Wrapping it all up is Georgia Napolitano singing `Time You Should Be Sleeping', the most classically-tinged - and least seasonal - number of the set. Dreams Of Fireflies is long overdue, as TSO's last soundtrack to the time of year highlighted by decorated trees and candy canes came in 2004 with The Lost Christmas Eve. Clocking in at just less than 15 minutes in length, the EP unfortunately ends all too quickly; but this is definitely a case of quality over quantity. Merry Christmas everyone!

3.0 out of 5 stars More Broadway than Christmas October 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The new TSO EP, "Dreams Of Fireflies (On A Christmas Night)" is not all that Christmas-y, in fact it's much more in line with the Broadway style that they are working on for their "Gutter Ballet" rock opera show. The opening track here, "Winter Palace" is typical TSO and will most certainly be the opening song on their upcoming Christmas tour. It's an instrumental (which they do so very well) and although not all that Christmas sounding, it will play very well on stage.
The title track "Dreams Of Fireflies" is a musical re-write of "Queen Of The Winter Night" from "The Lost Christmas Eve" album. "I Had A Memory" has a gospel feel and almost sounds like it came from "Hair" and "You Should Be Sleeping" is pure Broadway and sounds like a leftover from "The Phantom Of The Opera". This brings us to "Someday", this has been done on stage for the past several tours by Kayla Reeves and she does a great job, on this EP however the song is done by Tim Hockenberry who doesn't do the song justice.
Overall, not the best of TSO Christmas albums, the first album "Christmas Eve And Other Stories" remains the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars More like the earlier TSO Christmas albums October 31, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I was disappointed in Night Castle. There isn't one song in that double album set that I have on my playlist. This album, however, is beautiful. I like the two instrumentals better than the vocals, but in general I think it's a winner. I would recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Free Downloads From Ticket Purchase November 2, 2012
By Murphy
Format:MP3 Music
If anyone bought tickets to TSO's Christmas concerts this year, you will get an email to get these free. There is a download code for each ticket purchased. I tried using mine...FYO - I am using Firefox and these will not download with Firefox. Also, since I use AT&T U-Verse, they give me McAfee free. McAfee won't let these download either. So, if you get the email to get them free and you are using either of these sites, turn them off to get the songs. I briefly listened to the songs and they seem like remakes of previous songs but since they were free, what the heck. I love all their Christmas music anyway!
