    I hate to answer a question with a question but did you listen to the samples?

    It has 25 reviews and 25 of those are 5 Star reviews. I know we can't always go by amazons reviews, but in this case I would have to agree.

    2 of the albums are better than the other two, but all are worth owning, IMHO.

    You have to decide if you like their music, but I always consider it Very Good Christmas music that will entertain everyone from Kids to Grandparents.

    Here are the two I would pick, if I didn't want to buy the set.....

    Those two alone are $20, so for $7 more dollars, you'd get two more albums. Not a bad deal.

    That's the only xmas music I can stand anymore (well, plus the John Denver/Muppets album). Mannheim also have a DVD concert out, but it's not their Christmas show (which I've seen live a couple times, also recommended).

    I believe this is only the 2nd or 3rd Christmas music disc I've ever genuinely enjoyed!

    Mz,

    One word for you...."grooveshark"


    I go there and listen to a complete album before committing to buying. A lot better than the 30 sec clips Amazon offers you for demoing material.

    Ooh, trivia question: Chip Davis, the founder and leader of Mannheim Steamroller, also had a #1 hit in the '70s under a different name. Can you name the song/artist?

    I cannot stand listening to Manheim Steamroller - too cheesy for me. But, I know people love it, so more power to them.

    My current favorite Christmas music (aside from traditional hymns sung by professional choirs and choral ensembles) is the great CD set from Sufjan Stevens. That stuff is amazing to me.
