An album of Christmas sung 'Tarja' is not a scoop because she had already accustomed us to this kind of prowess but the title of the latest album 'From Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a Dark Christmas)' suggests that we are far away from the traditional French 'Petit Papa Noël'. First of all, the different photos are quite dark (this does not detract from the fact that they are real works of art) and then, by watching the first video unveiled on the internet of 'O come, o come Emmanuel', we think that we are far cry from the traditional version (it is a Christian religious song of the 12th century). Indeed, the album is aptly named and the great strength of 'Tarja', is to embark us on dark interpretations of traditional Christmas compositions like the beautiful 'Deck The Hall' completely revisited with its disturbing atmosphere and she manage to give to 'My Beautiful Tree' a mysterious atmosphere. In short, as usual, 'Tarja' upsets habits and takes the opposite of the standard by offering us a novel new album that inevitably can not leave indifferent: the conformist will certainly not like but all those who are open to new musical experiences should join: personally, I am part of these and I take this opportunity to wish you a 'Merry Christmas'...
