Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Since not liking the Scissor Sisters is tantamount to not liking fun, let's just assume that everyone already adores this band and go on from there, OK? The Sisters' hotly anticipated second full-length feel like a streamlined continuation of their debut. It's hard to imagine no one had ever called an album Ta Dah! before, but then these sexy troubadours have no trouble subtly reworking the past to make it almost-new and always joyous. They may have emerged in a brief window when campy pastiche rock seemed like the next big thing, but just as their friends Fischerspooner did with the electroclash "movement," the Scissor Sister possess an elevated enough sense of fun, popcraft, and good enough connections to carry them for years. Hell, the first track on this album, the wonderful confection "Don't Feel Like Dancin," was co-written with Sir Elton John, and it sounds like Abba, Fleetwood Mac and Xanadu all at once. Other tunes might have you thinking of Bowie or the Bee Gees or Prince or Pink Floyd or even the Carpenters, but only as cagily reimagined in a glittery, wonderful, post-Hedwig/ Velvet Goldmine world. --Mike McGonigal

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, darker - and even better than the first one September 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're only familiar with "Take Your Mama" and "Laura" from the Scissor Sisters' first album, some of the tracks on "Ta-Dah" will come as a bit of a surprise. (But buy both anyway.) First, there are the solid ballads - in the vein of "Return to Oz" and "Mary" from their first album, the beautiful "Might Tell You Tonight" and "The Other Side" are placed later in the album, and come as lamenting love songs amidst a wealth of dance-inducing cuts. And the darker, twisted "I Can't Decide," with its bouncy flair (and Jews Harp played by Gina Gershon) is incredibly catchy for a song sung by someone who's trying to decide if they should commit murder or not ("I can't decide/whether you should live or die/Oh, you'll probably go to heaven/Please don't hang your head and cry.") Likewise, Elton John's co-written "Intermission" is equally jaunty and dark ("Happy yesterday to all/We were born to die.")

That's not to say you can't dance your a** off to this album - there are plenty of tracks designed to help you do just that. "Ooh" and "Paul McCartney" - perhaps the most hyper fan letter ever written to a Beatle - are both excellent reminders of why this band has the reputation it does. And the sole song sung by the totally fabulous Ana Matronic, "Kiss You Off," sounds like she's channeling Goldfrapp and Blondie at the same time - and with the driving beat and laid-back vocals, it works. Great lyrics too - "Kiss you off my lips/It's standing room only for a piece of my pigment/So excuse me a minute while I supply demand."

The lead single "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" is - and will be - ubiquitous, and deservedly so. With Elton John both contributing to the songwriting, and playing piano, and Jake Shears' disco falsetto, it's one of those rare songs that you like the more you hear it.

This much anticipated deluxe edition of Ta-Dah, the latest music put out by the Scissor Sisters, is an inevitable sure fire hit for fans of the group everywhere! Yes, yes, I know, they didn't do precisely this sort of thing before, but it works here anyway. Just PLEASE give it a couple of listens and it will be growing on you fast. The deluxe edition includes a bonus disc with six creative tracks in addition to the main disc with the songs put out on the regular version of this album. The quality of the sound is excellent, too.

The album starts off very strong with an infectious, catchy tune entitled "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'." Elton John is on piano! This title is immediately very ironic since this song is so upbeat, beautifully written and joyous that you WILL feel like dancing to it as early as a minute or two after the song starts! The second bonus CD features a re-mix of this song; but the version on the first CD will leave you restless to dance and panting for more.

Other great songs with awesome musical arrangements include "She's My Man;" "I Can't Decide;" "Land Of A Thousand Words" with its' dream-like, almost experimental/psychedelic musical intro; "Kiss You Off" which sounds like a mixture of pop and dance music and "Might Tell You Tonight" which reminded me of both The Bee Gees and some of Paul McCartney's earlier work from the 1970s. The final song, "Everybody Wants The Same Thing," appeals to the universal quest for happiness, doing the right thing for yourself, and sharing love. This song boasts a magnificent musical arrangement that ends the CD on a very strong note.

I think this new second album is really worth the wait. It refines the quality of the Sisters' killer debut recording, and adds more music hall to their repertoire, making "Ta-Dah!!" (love that title, makes me laugh) a different listning experience. It's still a helluva lot of fun, but there is more melancholy here, and darker elements, which shows the fab five-some are not content to merely repeat themselves. Sure, there are familiar sounds all around here, but they are more streamlined. The band exudes musical growth here and many of the songs are growers; many of them don't reward you until the second or third listen. I think this is good, as if songs like these reveal their secrets right away, they will be rendered disposable. Here, these songs are richly LAYERED, with many complexities, both musically (writing and arrangements) and lyrically. Plus, it sounds very fresh, and will be an enticing record in 10 years. I love these kinds of records; they are delightful.

Now, the songs, I have no problem with the sequencing. At first, it seemed a similar order as the debut, with more ballads at the front and disco rock in the second half, but it's not that simple. I think you have to live with the record for a while before you can make any judgements. The first single, "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" is a fun oxymoron of a song, and it resembles Leo Sayer's "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" but not as disposable, mixed with an upbeat 70s Elton tune & a slight Bo Diddley beat. It's a good choice of first single and starts "Ta-Dah!!" off with a bang. All the songs are cool here, and an early fave is the delightful Ana Matronic-led disco rock romp "Kiss You Off", with a slam bang of a chorus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy, driven, danceable music, untainted by "urban" laziness.
It's refreshing to hear organic-sounding dance music, played by actual musicians. The melodies are catchy, and the lyrics are humorous and fun.
