Seldom can there have been an album of such diversity as this one, from New York glam-throwbacks the Scissor Sisters. This can be viewed as both a strength and a weakness, and no doubt the multi-genre approach will confuse some whilst appealing to others. The album kicks off with the funky "Laura", and is followed by the energetic radio-friendly "Take Your Mama". This is classic early era Elton John along the lines of "Take Me To The Pilot", and when Jake Shears launches into the falsetto chorus you could be forgiven for thinking that Elton himself is making an appearance on vocals. Then, just when you think you know where you stand with the album, the Sisters' musical boundaries are completely redefined with the gay-disco-inspired reworking of Pink Floyd's immortal "Comfortably Numb". Your view of this one will probably depend on how highly you regard the original, but even the most die-hard Floyd fans must admit that it's kinda catchy. "Mary" is a classic slow rocker built around a deep swelling piano line, with echoes of Spandeau Ballet thrown in just to further the confusion. "Tits On The Radio" with its wry lyrics and seventies disco setting is guaranteed to make you smile, and "Music Is the Victim" sounds like the Stones fused with a heavy dose of Saturday Night Fever. And just when you thought there was nothing left to give, you are treated to the ambitious "Return To Oz". With disarmingly obscure lyrics and eerie melodies the song builds into a compelling finale, and though you have no idea what they are singing about, somehow it doesn't really matter. Either something for everyone, or an album too diverse for the average music fan. But therein lies the beauty. Crazy, camp, colourful, and well worth adding to your collection.
