In the spirit of Christmas, here is my recommendation of a record that is not the usual schmaltz:

Trans Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Eve And Other Stories has been my favorite for many years, I have Christmas lights synchronized to several of their songs.

That’s cheating though mate, because that actually is a Christmas album ;).

I understand, still great music and not songs you often hear elsewhere.
Trans Siberian Orchestra is an alternative to the same old Christmas songs over and over, get so tired of hearing them, monotonous to me.
Can I get by with that use of alternative? :)
