Its out ... it's here....and it's excellent !!!!!

From Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a Dark Christmas)..... just in time for the holiday, Tarja releases her X-mas disc, and it's a gem.

I have it - I've been playing it -- and her voice is absolutely perfect for this type of music. Some of the songs give chills -- wrap up in your favorite blanket, get your warm drink, and listen to awesome holiday music from Tarja ...... very, very well done ....... if you are a Tarja fan, you will love this.

I actually picked this up the same time as The Dark Element CD, which is so good, I haven't bothered with this one yet.
Will check it out over the weekend.

Played this all weekend in the car, Tarja is back to top form after the very disappointing 2 releases from last year.
This material suits her voice perfectly, slowed right down so she can get every last drop of emotion from her voice.

***Absolutely agree with you ....... slowing down the music really showcases her voice to where it should be....... she sings X-mas music to perfection.

Going to have to disagree a bit on this one. TARJA sounds great (but then, when DOESN'T she?) but the songs ofttimes don't work well. Feliz Navidad and I Want to Wish you a Merry Christmas are WAY to slow and plodding.

Personally, I enjoyed the last two albums..... Not as much as "Shadow Cabinet" (or whatever her second solo album was called!) but still solid. Better than this for sure.

It's in my stack to be listened to still..... Currently have the latest Eclipse, Sons of Apollo, and Lynch Mob in the car...... Soon, very soon....

I'll tell you, I haven't heard a note of this and have no interest at all. I barely tolerate Christmas music and certainly wouldn't voluntarily listen to it. Even Tarja couldn't possibly make the worst Christmas song of all times, Feliz Navidad, appealing to me. Yes I know, Bah Humbug.
