AllMusic Review by

Twisted Cabaret, Vol. 1 collects 18 contemporary cabaret-style pop gems that run the gamut from deliciously wicked (Baby Dee's “The Earlie King”) to flat-out nuts (Little White Rabbits Still Bleed Red's “Balloon Animal Suicide [Big Blue Ribbons]”). It’s a novel idea for a mix, and one with a specific audience in mind. Whether it’s the Gypsy-fueled fury of Kokusyoku Sumire's “Gekko Renka” or the classic electronic paranoia of the Residents (“The Dying Oilman”), Twisted Cabaret provides a nice soundtrack for whatever fetish needs tending to.
