Synopsis

Amazon.com
Bob Rivers is in top form here plying his satire-ridden stocking-stuffer trade, serving up note-per-note knockoffs of everyone from Led Zeppelin and the B52s to Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, and Tchaikovsky, among others. No lazy satirists, Rivers and company deliver not only grand musical copies but clever and witty lyrics that slum on the gutter side only occasionally ("Buttcracker Suite" being the biggest offender). The rest of the time it's good-natured stuff even ol' Scrooge could like. "It's the Most Fattening Time of the Year" apes Johnny Mathis, "Sled Zeppelin" nails the Plant-Page matrix, and the Beatles' rips, "Jesus' Birthday" and "All You Need Is Elves," also highlight the 13 tracks. But the most inspired cuts are a big-band swing version of the Rolling Stones' "Get off My Cloud" (here retitled "Hey You! Get Off My House") and Hendrix's "Purple Haze," knowingly recast as "Holidaze (Scuze Me, I've Got Gifts to Buy)." If that one doesn't grab yer funny bone, it may be time for that humor-marrow transplant. --Martin Keller

CD Reviews

A fun twist on Christmas
06/27/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bob Rivers and hiw crew at KISW have altered the lyrics of many Christmas songs, and turned some other songs into Christmas songs, in a way that combines perspective on life with humor that most of us can associate with. This CD is sure to make you laugh and add a little joy to your day."
Second Only To The First "Twisted Christmas"!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have all of the Bob Rivers' "Twisted Christmas" CDs, and the original "Twisted Christmas" and "More Twisted Christmas" are still the best. Rivers and his gang do hilarious parodies of actual Christmas songs, rather than just making up funny Christmas songs.

Some people might consider Bob Rivers irreverant, but those of us here love him!"
More Twisted Christmas

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Sorry but this was a big disappointment from the first Twisted Christmas CD which I love. I really didn't find the songs funny at all compared to the first one. Probably because the songs on the second CD are not done to holiday music but top popular music like the Beatles and it just doesn't work. Part of the charm is singing the twisted words to the real holiday songs that brings some sanity to the harried season. I loved the first Twisted Christmas and would highly recommend it. This one is not worth the postage to mail it back. 3 stars is over-rated but I feel generous today."
