I wouldn't have believed that anyone could have written a decent song about christmas time, i loathe the repeated offerings of Wizard and Slade..BUT on hearing Wizards of Winter led me to this masterpiece of 3 albums.
On hearing ONLY the first track of Christmas Attic, my wife exclaimed she'd have paid twice as much for it. The albums are based around seperate Christmas stories, each with their own flavour, each pulling at the heart strings with such verocity. I delight both versions of the Christmas Canon, the childrens choir added a haunting but serene touch, and the 'Rock' female vocal filled by passes the ears and assaults the senses directly.
Very tempted to see them live, check out youtube for concert material.
The bonus DVD was an added reward, with Michael Crawford singing in great form, the story brought a tear to my eye and a lump to my throat.
If you want to feel the passion of Christmas again, to be stirred by your senses, buy this trilogy, sit back and prepare to be swept away by a rollercoaster of emotion.
