Overview

Ta-Dah

New York's flamboyant Scissor Sisters continue to party like it's 1979 on album No. 2, proving their debut was neither a fluke nor a one-hit novelty. Ta-Dah is another fizzy cocktail mixed from equal parts '70s glam and disco, with a spritz of French house music just to keep things fresh. Jake Shears and crew also up the ante this time out. While their hit "Take Your Mamma Out" merely mimicked Elton John at his mid-'70s peak, Ta-Dah actually brings Reg to the festivities -- he co-wrote and plays on "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'," a vamping, Bee Gees-inspired number that is the musical equivalent of a feather boa. But Scissor Sisters sound more like him when he's not around; the bouncy "She's My Man," owes more than a little to "I'm Still Standing," and "Land of a Thousand Words" is a soaring ballad worthy of Captain Fantastic. The other major influence heard here is fellow '70s songsmith Paul Williams, whose soundtracks for Phantom of the Paradise, Bugsy Malone, and The Muppet Movie have left musical fingerprints all over Ta-Dah, most notably the Tin Pan Alley sounds of "I Can't Decide" and "Intermission." Actually, to call the band a flesh-and-blood version of Muppet band Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem wouldn't be that far off, despite obvious lyrical differences. But what Scissor Sisters do best is make you move, and "Ooh," "Paul McCartney," and "I Don't Feel Like Dancin' " are irresistible dance-floor fillers. There may not be anything as show-stopping as the first album's disco-fied cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," but Ta-Dah is a more confident, consistent album that will keep the party raging -- and neighbors complaining -- late into the night.
