The new EP from Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night), heralds the start of Christmas with five divine gems perfect for music aficionados of all ages.
"Winter Palace" opens with shimmering fast piano before mounting into rapturous riffing. It's an elegant, ethereal, and edgy opener as the distortion resounds over the melody. The track stands emblematic of the group's ever-delicate balance between classical orchestration and metallic wizardry. It's one of TSO's most intriguing rockers, and it's bound to cause a bang live. The title track builds furiously into the kind of orchestral propulsion that has made the band a holiday staple. Meanwhile, "I Had a Memory", the acoustic "Someday", and "Time You Should Be Sleeping" emanate a sleepy bliss that's as comforting as a Christmas fire.
Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night) comes to life in timeless fashion as all of TSO's music does. Even at five songs, they keep getting better. This is a must-have for the holidays and all year.
