Editors’ Notes

New York's Scissor Sisters burst upon the scene in the mid-00s with a flashy, trendy style that now demands they stay aware of trends in order to best them. Their first two albums -- Scissor Sisters, Ta-Dah -- established them as a commercial juggernaut, while by 2010's Night Work, the competition was nipping at their heels, with plenty of co-opting of the group's outrageous sense of style and sound. However, no one does outrageousness better than this group. With Calvin Harris and Alex Ridha of Boys Noize co-producing, the group keeps the hooks coming and the eras shifting. "Baby Come Home" brings them near Elton John's mid-70s heights, while "Inevitable" delivers on the promise of late-70s Bee Gees. Diplo, Azealia Banks, Pharrell Williams, Stuart Price and Joan as Policewoman throw their support into the mix, while SS's Ana Matronic fires up for the electric "Let's Have A Kiki." "The Secret Life Of Letters" places the group behind the piano for an orchestrated ballad. The Deluxe Version includes the on-target party anthem, "F*** Yeah," the video for "Only the Horses" and two remixes.

Customer Reviews

A little skeptical and blew me away.

When I heard shady love I was a little cautious of what the Scissisters were bringing our direction. After a full listen to the new release, everything makes sense and I think it could be there best one yet with some janky honky tonk to smooth upbeat disco beats. The repeat button will be on for awhile on my iPod.


I love scissor sisters, they never disappoint!!!!!!

Magic Hour

After their last album Night Work, which to me was their best work thusfar, I was looking forward to more of that style. Then, I heard that they were going back to the style of their first album. I was a bit disappointed, but it was fine since I loved their first album as well. When Shady Love came out at the very beginning of this year, I was surprised at the direction that they were going in. It was the same with Only the Horses, which I love. Then I took a listen to the album as a whole. I was surprised to find that there are more slow songs than there are upbeat songs. I understand that the Scissor Sisters chose to collaborate with other artists on this album, but the production seems wrong and almost overpowering. On the other hand, there are some songs that are undeniably Scissor Sisters' material and I'm happy about that. It may take some getting used to and I'm most likely going to love the album before the week is over. For now, however, I'm going to give this a 4. Standout tracks for me: Somewhere, Self Control, Baby Come Home, Inevitable. And if you're feeling good and strange, Let's Have a Kiki.


Formed: 2001 in New York, NY

Genre: Pop

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...
