AllMusic Review by

While most holiday songs are about evoking feelings of cheer and goodwill, only the Trans-Siberian Orchestra imbues the Christmas season with a sense of epicness. On Tales of Winter: Selections from the TSO Rock Operas, the most dazzling of the band's neo-classical, arena rock epics are collected onto one disc. Sure, there are plenty of more traditional holiday albums you could reach for come December, but none of them will be nearly as elaborate and searing as this one, so before you give that "Wonderful Christmastime" single its millionth spin, think of the metalheads in your life this holiday season and give the Trans-Siberian Orchestra a try.
