Overview

Five years in the making, Night Castle is Trans-Siberian Orchestra's most ambitious and adventurous work to date. Founder Paul O'Neill and crew have created 26 songs that run the gamut from hard rock to classical, taking the listener on a journey through different points of history.

Night Castle details the triumphs and follies of man but is ultimately an epic story of transformation and love. The specially priced two-CD set includes a 68-page booklet, featuring the story, lyrics, and color illustrations by Greg Hildebrandt.

"Obviously our fans have been unbelievably patient," O'Neill says. "This was supposed to come out a few years ago. But we were dedicated to making something really special, and the longer it took, the more pressure we felt to give people the best possible piece of art we could." From the Label

An exquisite and graceful combination of musical dramatizations that could only be accomplished via the masterful artisanship of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Each selection stands on its own, as if a work of art. To be viewed at one's own pace, for one to become engaged with the piece and its melodious and intrinsic significance and emotions with which the writer's intended to produce. This newest addition of Trans-Siberian Orchestra is necessary for any follower of these highly talented musicians as well as a great first purchase for anyone who would like to discover a new genre of listening pleasure.

I love TSO's Christmas albums but their best 2 albums in my opinion are this one and Beethoven's Last Night. Great stories, excellent performances and really good original music.

Ordered this after seeing TSO in concert. Even though this is Christmas oriented, I will listen year-round. It is amazing & has even more impact when you read the story it is based on.

I am a great fan of TSO, and Night Castle is right in line with their previous CDs. The mixture of orchestra and rock is so much more than just Christmas music. Even after listening to the CD over and over, I am not ready to take it out of my car CD player.

I would recomend this CD. The instrumentals are great. I like the originality of the songs. A person could listen to this CD all year. It will be a nice addition to any CD collection, young or old.

This CD is inspiring, emotional and passionate! If you close your eyes while listening you can see the characters in the story singing these songs. Looking forward to their next masterpiece!
