The beginning of the album is pretty good. The album highlights are Baby Come Home, Inevitable, and Let's Have a Kiki. Baby comes home and Inevitable are purely Scissor sisters fashion. Let's have a Kiki, reminds me of Maxi singles from the late 80's. Great beat and pretty funny. Ana does a great job on this song. Some other songs that are great but on a lesser extent are "keep Your Shoes on", "Year of living Dangerously", "Only the Horses", "Shady Love","San Luis Obispo", and "Somewhere" which feels like a Night Work song. The misses are three in a row which really hurts the flow of the album, starting with free-style "Self Control" then very pop radio candy that will not test well with test of time with "best in Me', and then followed by a ballad that comes off flat "Secret Life of letters." This seriously hurt the album in my mind. If they cut those songs and added "F*** Yeah", remix version, after Shady Love and recorded another song or two that was true to their style the album would have been better.
Scissor Sisters almost had a theme going with late 1980s with Let's have a kiki, year of living dangerously, and freestyle-eque "self control". But the other songs are totally not late 80's. The other theme was modern pop. Scissor Sisters tried UK pop with Only the horses, and USA pop with "Shady Love". The songs are both very different, but both popular music, although different, in both of these countries USA & UK. As a results, you get a Magic Hour grab bag. Pretty good album but it's all over the place and there are some songs that should have been cut off of the drawing table or a b-side.
From the first listen, I was hooked. I love the deluxe edition with the extra songs and mixes. The fresh funky sound that the Sisters deliver is exactly right for listening alone, driving, parties, or working.
I'm a middle aged married woman, and I've been a huge fan for years now. This new album will get heavy rotation on my ipod. This music just makes me happy.
If you have the chance to see this band in concert, go! I had the pleasure about 1 1/2 years ago, and they put on a fantastic show.
One thing that comes to mind is that Shady Love was released back in January. It's a great track, and blew me away at the time. Therefore, when you hear it again on the album, it doesn't blow your mind a second time, cause you have played it to death the past few months. For anyone that has not heard Shady Love, you are in for a real treat when Let's Have a Kiki flows into Shady Love. Anyone with a brain and a heart should be on their feet and reaching for the volume control, cranking it up and kicking off your shoes.
Even though their are many styles on this album, it is still a consistent, enjoyable party album of the same caliber as Night Work. The production is crisp, with lots of creative touches that take multiple listenings to truly appreciate.
Put your critical pencil behind your ear and cut loose and enjoy some good music!
