Take a chance on me
For some reason it is as if the new Scissor Sisters album Ta-Dah! has been forgotten already. It's weird, I don't think you'll find many people that didn't like the first album with it's weird mix of carbarat, disco, electro and rock, so why hasn't the new album become a succes?
The songs are still in the same vein as the first album, but maybe the act is wearing a bit thin for some people? I admit to being only a fan of the uptempo dancy songs, and I think the slow stuff is dull - why did they choose Land of a thousand words for that all important second single I'll never get. Of course I don't feel like dancing is definetly the best thing on there, but there are other really good tracks as well:

In the attempt to get more people to look back on this album, I'll post my current favorite track I can't decide. If you remember the piano player from the saloons in the old Lucky Luke cartoons this is what you should hear in your head. Cast as a gangster of love Mr. Shears musses over the fact that he apparently is willing to go all the way to make people like him. The ambivalence in this song is really interesting, the sadness that he can't really say no to sex. He knows he should because the sexual leftovers will return to haunt him, but on the other hand he knows himself enough to tell the listener to lock the doors and close the blinds, we are going for a ride.

    I share your appreciation of this song. I was lucky enough to be one of the first people in the world to hear it, when it was played at a secret invite-only gig on Aug 14th 2005.
