Scissor Sisters Ta-Dah (Polydoor) Trying their utmost to convince the world that disco is still alive and kicking, Scissor Sister's high-camp follow-up to their wildly successful self-titled debut treads a similar platform-sole trodden path. The influences are still plain to see - they channel as much of the Bee Gees as Leo Sayer, and even some Elton John (who makes a guest appearance on one track) - and the New York-based outfit still owe much to the sweeping production of keyboard/bassist Babydaddy, who brings such dance floor stompers as the opener, I Don't Feel Like Dancin', to life. That standout track shifts the glam into overdrive and the pity is that - try as they might - the band never again reach those dizzy heights. It's not for want of trying, though. And like their debut, Ta-Dah comes infused with enthusiasm for the cause. There's some darker touches to their lyrics this time around, which add an edge to Land of a Thousand Words and The Other Side, but before you begin to worry that the Sisters are getting all serious, they turn their hands to the likes of Ooh and those concerns are hip-bumped to one side. The problem is just how much of a good thing do you really want. Or, rather, how much of their thing. Ta-Dah rates high for novelty value, but it begins to wear decidedly thin after a few listens. Disco was never meant to take you anywhere but out of yourself and onto the dance floor. This time around they struggle to do that.
