Taboo & Exile is an album by John Zorn which synthetizes exotica, hardcore punk, classical, jazz, surf and world narration into a new prodigious genre. It is the second album to appear in Zorn's Music Romance Series following Music for Children (1998).
The Allmusic review by Stacia Proefrock awarded the album 3½ stars stating "This is not a piece of classical movements; rather, it is like a film with constantly changing scenes. Before the end of the album, images are evoked of slow, metered tribal ritual, escape on an open road, cabaret, desert and dance. This is one of Zorn's most complex and beautiful pieces, showing that he is still constantly evolving as a composer".
