iTunes Review

In Scissor Sisters’ world, glitter rains down from clouds and Elton John reigns supreme. But the New York group’s exuberant debut proves there’s substance behind the camp. Their Bee Gees-esque reboot of the Pink Floyd classic “Comfortably Numb” is a mind-melting marvel, while “Take Your Mama” is a barn-stomper about coming out in style. From the lyrical balladry of “Return to Oz” to the raunchy electro-pop of “Filthy/Gorgeous”, Scissor Sisters' music belies the band’s '70s-baby influences.

Beautiful, Crazy and Outrageous

If you took Elton John, David Bowie and Pink Floyd, mixed it all up adding a bit of the Bee Gees, the result would be the Scissor Sisters, debuting with this beautiful, crazy and outrageous self-titled electro-glam. While the more popular numbers like Mary, Take Your Mama and Laura are great songs the Scissor Sisters outstanding moments for me are in the songs Better Luck Next Time, It Can't Come Quickly Enough & Return To Oz. If you have not heard Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd or the cover by the Scissor Sisters I would highly recommend that you listen to these tracks as the originality in manipulating and recreating the song by Scissor Sisters is a breathtaking experience.

Many of these songs are most definately going to raise a smile on your face. 'Take your mama' is an excellent song, and Pink Floyd is (just about) done justice in an alternative way. 'Mary' is an unexpectedly beautiful ballad, that I have to admit, I didn't think would work well for these guys. How wrong I was! However, the champion for me is 'Return to Oz', it has something uplifting about it somehow that the other tracks don't have. Just two issues of concern: 1- how long before the catchy novelty wears off (ie can the success carry off onto another album), and 2- the necessity for the language is....? Oh and by the way, the sound on Track 12 comes on the 30th second, for those of you who were waiting for it.

I Love This Album... WOW...

I absolutely love this album it is outstanding. The songs are just mind blazingly good. This album has a song for everyone. I listen to it every night when I go to sleep because it is so great. I hope their second album is just as good!

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A genre- and gender-defying mix of rock, pop, and dance inspired by burlesque, drag queens, and glam rock, New York's Scissor Sisters made a splash in late 2003/early 2004 with their neon-bright reimagining of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," the B-side to the band's first single, "Electrobix." The song made quite a name for the band, which featured singers Jake Shears and Ana Matronic, keyboardist/bassist Babydaddy, guitarists Del Marquis and Derek G, and drummer Paddy Boom: along with becoming...
