Product Description

The Scissor Sisters keep the party going on their sophomore album, Ta-Dah, a synthesis of three decades worth of Pop that alternately references early Prince, Elton John, the Bee Gees and even such Rock/Funk hybrids as the Rolling Stones' "Miss You." Features the first single "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'," appropriately co-written with Elton John, the funky "Ooh" (think "Controversy-"era Prince), the single-in-waiting "Everybody Wants the Same Thing," Ana Matronic's confidently sung "Kiss You Off" and the unabashedly retro "Paul McCartney." Elsewhere, the band perfects the ballad style previously heard on tracks like "Mary" and "Return to Oz" with "Land of a Thousand Words" and less in-your-face "The Other Side," which finds frontman Jake Shears eschewing his usual falsetto for a more soothing vocal delivery. "I Can't Decide" is jaunty and almost honky tonk-ish, while "Intermission" turns back the clock with a jokey spin on old-time Vaudeville.

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

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.

Ta-Dah speaks to my inner 70s child and part of my 80s. I could waste valuable time (which you should spend buying this) writing endlessly about how great this CD is, but I'll sum it as quickly as possible. Here goes:

THE OVERALL SOUND REMINDS ME OF:

the best of Elton John, Pet Shop Boys, George Michael, Abba, Times Two, a tinge of Go West, "Xanadu" (as Amazon.com so rightly puts it in their review) and even the harmony of the Beach Boys and Carpenters...

WHY YOU'LL LIKE IT SO MUCH:

Because you can dance AND listen! While the incredibly energetic, fun sound of disco is here and welcome, the often horrible lyrics that genre generated is most definitely (and with much relief!) missing.

TA-DAH IS THAT MOST RARE AND TREASURED OF ALBUMS:

the one where every track's either a winner or at least "not bad"!

AND THESE ARE JUST THE HIGHLIGHTS:

Track #1) "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'"--Do you remember the awful movie XANADU with the terrific soundtrack? This song reminds me of ELO and ONJ's collaboration on one of the most underappreciated soundtracks of the early 80s!!

Track #2) "She's My Man"--At the risk of implying Scissor Sisters borrows a lot from their favorite 70s idols, I've got to say this wonderful, quirky song reminds me so much of "Still Standing" by Elton John. (This is a good thing, though!)

Track #3) "I Can't Decide"--A great tongue-in-cheek song that reminds me of the Beatles if they were writing in the 21st century...any other song about killing someone would be totally out of line, but somehow it works here because...well...it's tongue-in-cheek of course!
