5.0 out of 5 stars Twilight of the World 19 Dec 2010
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Not a "musical" person in the accepted sense. People bursting into song for no apparent reason always appears forced and trite. Watching the Saturday afternoon fayre of Annie Get your Gun, My Fair Lady, West Side Story never really made an impression except as a slight relief from Rugby Union on Grandstand.

The only exception is this "Cabaret". adapted from the Berlin stories of Christopher Isherwood. A musical set in the last days of Weimar, the juncture point between the post war liberation and economic depression and brown shirts raising their right arm in unison in a different sublimation of desire.

Cabaret captures the heady days and the musical CD is well worth the excavation as the tunes formed the backbone of Radio 2 soporific trance pronouncements in the 70's/80's. Listening carefully these are songs of suberversion sung in a post Brecht/Weill lament.

Underappreciated because they became too popular and stripped of their power. Played everywhere Money Money lost its bite and became a celebration rather than satire. This was never the songs fault as it tried to puncture inertia.

Now it's time for a reappraisal and to bring it back away from its success and unravel its meaning. Cabaret celebrates the uncoiling Dyonisian experience on the verge of a human catastrophe. This is its power, strength and warning. The songs are easier to digest for Anglo Saxons than the Deutsche of Brecht/Weill Eisner etc. It does provide a entry point into these worlds, the twilight worlds of Lotte Lenya, Marlene Dietrich, Ute Lemper and Dagmar Krause.

Therefore tone down the lights and let the action begin!

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT SOUNDTRACK TO PERFECT MOVIE 16 May 2003
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is absolutely perfect, without one throwaway track. You needn’t even have to have seen the movie to enjoy these marvellous songs, but it certainly helps. I consider the movie and this album the highlight of Liza Minnelli’s career. It starts with Joel Grey’s Wilkommen, after which Sally Bowles is introduced and lets rip with Mein Herr. Two Ladies is risqué and very funny, while Maybe This Time is a sad love song. Money Money is energetic and very funny while Heiraten sounds like a real period piece, a German love song from the 1930s. If You Could See Her Through My Eyes (the love song to a gorilla maiden) is full of irony, while Tomorrow Belongs To Me is as chilling and sinister as it is anthemic. The title track Cabaret needs no comment as it is so familiar, but it does encapsulate the mood of the film very well. Even the two instrumentals, Tiller Girls and Sitting Pretty are memorable and charming. The Cabaret soundtrack is a masterpiece, as is the movie, a true work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liza May Minnelli 17 Mar 2004
By Reno
Format:Audio CD
By all means this happens to be one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard. Liza Minnelli does such a convincing job as the fraülein Sally Bowles, she's energic, forceful and ravingly wonderful. This sound is just great and it's not just Liza it's the whole cast, Joel Grey does a wonderful job and it also earned him an oscar for best supporting actor, he's so great escpecially on "Willkommen" and "If You Could See Her". The last song mentioned is perticulary wonderful, it's such a "tragic" love story with a deeper meaning behind it [for the dumb ones, it's about a german who falls in love with a jew].
Liza Minnelli is outstanding her overall performance is legendary songs such as "Mein Herr [my favourite Liza Minnelli song]", "Maybe This Time" and on the immortal "Cabaret". The movie was one of the best I've ever seen, and the soundtrack is just as ravishing, by all means one of the best Pictures/soundtracks ever created. Hail Liza May Minnelli.
Academy Awards:
1. Best Actress [Liza Minnelli]
2. Best Soundtrack
3. Best Art Direction
4. Best Cinamatography
5. Best Director [Bob Fosse]
6. Best Editing
7. Best Sound
8. Best Supporting Actor [Joel Grey
Can you belivie that 8 Oscars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern masterpiece 14 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
While I have to admit that i prefer older musicals where the people burst out into song for no reason, this soundtrack was the one that launched me into the more modern musical.
All of the songs possess a quality that doesn't make them sound childish, the best of these being 'Maybe This Time' and the title track.
A thoroughly modern musical with a suitable hint of sadness.
