Oooh.... a little late for this update. Trans-Siberian Orchestra is most famous for doing what amount to Christmas rock operas. This specific album is famous for "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24" which is essentially a metal "Carol of the Bells." It's cool. I like this album a lot even though I think some of the vocals are a little melodramatic for me. If you like your Christmas music with a little crunch then TSO is definitely for you.

Useless Fact: This album features a few guys from Savatage. Guitarist Al Petrilli also played for Megadeth years ago.
