Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The second album by New York City's Scissor Sisters, Ta-Dah, brings with it a huge weight of expectations. After all, their debut album slowly rode up the charts in 2004 to become that year's biggest selling album. The good news is that, like their debut, Ta-Dah is packed full of witty, grown-up pop music. Their influences remain the same, including a bit of 1970's disco and glam rock, a bit of classic Fleetwood Mac and a bit of early Elton John (who plays piano on the ultra-catchy album opener "I Don't Feel Like Dancing"). Musically, it's easily as much fun as their debut: "Land of a Thousand Words" is an homage to the themes from the James Bond films, "She's My Man" tells the tale of a fabled female New Orleans river pirate, "Ooh" is the funkiest dance song never played at Studio 54 and "Kiss You Off" is a liberating break-up anthem sung by the band's Ana Matronic. Lyrically, though, Ta-Dah is not as full of the unchecked hedonism of their first album, with the vaudevillian "Intermission" proclaiming, "We were born to die." But even if the sentiment isn't particularly cheerful, the music definitely is. With Ta-Dah, the Scissor Sisters manage to be both big and clever, once again producing some of the smartest pop music you can dance to. --Ted Kord

5.0 out of 5 stars How to pull a rabbit from a hat - with flair. 7 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Two years on and the Scissor Sisters continue to dazzle. Reflecting their development, the sequins and feather boas have been replaced with expensive and stylish, silk suits. Maturity, Originality and Professionalism are familiar terms applicable to the Scissor Sisters. In their second album though, they really have moulded their niche. Some fans will miss the raunchy, playful, controversial character of the first album as Ta-Dah focuses more on thoughtful and intelligent lyrics, than on camping things up. That said, 'Kiss You Off' and 'Paul McCartney' are classics in the making, whilst 'Lights' and the first single 'I Don't Feel Like Dancing' will have you swinging round the room in no time. Be warned though, this album follows mainly in the musical trail of 'Mary' and 'It Can't Come Quickly Enough' than 'Filthy-Gorgeous', but it reflects a band who have accepted their new role in shaping 21st Century music in a humble, grateful and responsible manner. Their London concert in Trafalgar Square shows that they plan to use this well-earned respect and fame to breathe life into a tired musical industry, and they succeed spectacularly in giving their audience a well earned trip into the minds of truly talented performers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grows and grows on you!!! 12 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Having been a massive fan of their first album, I couldn't wait for their follow-up.

My initial response to it however, was slight disappointment. Less 'naughty' and raunchy than its predecessor, it was also slightly less immediate and sounded more tame on the first couple of listens.

However, it has since proved its worth. No-one creates hooks like Scissor Sisters do, and there are so many catchy, funky songs that you will find yourself turning up the volume to dance around to many of the songs, 'Paul McCartney', 'Lights' and 'Ooh' being examples (that have not so far been released as singles, but believe me, they will be!).

'Land of a thousand words' and 'The other side' show the more introspective and thoughtful side of the band and have tremendous beauty and are genuinely touching.

Stylistically, there are echoes of Bee Gees, Queen, (even some of the Beatles humorous numbers) and Elton John, and they are obviously a huge reference for Mika's album.

This is a more mature album lyrically too. The songs - while still full of fun, humour and 'naughtiness' - also deal with meaningful love relationships...both the highs and lows.

Their first album was mammothly successful, and it is of course a hard act to follow, but this is not a weak album by any stretch and is stuffed full of hits. Give it a couple of listens and you too will find they have hooked you once again!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great second album that will having you dancing 12 Jan 2007
By pepemia VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I was reluctant to buy the Scissor Sisters second album as I feared it would be like so many second albums - rubbish. But I so glad I was wrong. Its great- every bit as bouncy, disco, camp and soulfull as the first, and I now listen to this more. The first few tracks are amazing and having you bopping away. I especailly love the song " shes my man " which is pure 80's pop disco at its best. While my boyfriend likes " I cant decide" - which is realy unusally but very catchy , like a camp western song.The whole album is catchy and uplifting and just the thing to lift you up. Although the later tracks are not the catchiest after a few listens you will be bopping away to these too. If I feeling fed up I just put this album on and instantily Im happy and in scissor sister land .

4.0 out of 5 stars More classic Scissor Sister dancing tunes 15 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Their 2nd album has a lot to live up to, the trouble with debut albums that are instant hits is that you can't help hoping and praying for more of the same which is also better, well after a few listens this is one is going to be great.

Straight away songs like "She's my Man", "Lights", and "Paul McCartney" are going to be instant Scissor Sister classics and let's not forget "I don't feel like Dancin", they all demand to be played over and over again.

The band feels like it's grown a bit which has allowed it to try a few new ideas, but at the same time retains the funky electronic samples and backing that made the original stand out!

I'm betting this is on the wish list for loads of people, get it as soon as you can!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scissor-tastic!! 1 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
I love this album!! I didn't think they could get any better but they have proved that they are even better than their first album.

This is an album that you can put on and listen to from start to finish without skipping any of the tracks.

It's very disco/pop tongue in cheek fun-ness that you would expect from such a great band. I don't feel like dancing is a great indicator to what you can expect from this album.

Expect to be out of your chair on your feet dancing round whilst listening to this album because the songs are just so great that you won't be able to help but dance to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favourite albums EVER!!! 7 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
there are twelve fantastic songs here that are played over and over again and are always fun to listen to.
Scissor sisters are a fantastic band to listen to and their songs are amazing!!!!
this album i find is a step up from their first album(which i also love)and the music on each track shows a range of artistic style that really shows off their fantastic talent.
I Dont feel like dancin' is already a classic track,i love She's My Man with a fun beat and catchy lyrics,I Cant Decide is also fun and can be heard in the Doctor Who series three finale-The Last Of The Timelords.
Land of a thousand words has to be my favourite song by the band....why wasnt this used for Casino Royale????
love the album
YOU NEED IT IF YOU LOVE MUSIC!!!
