  1. Despair is very much with us. It'll blow up before it recedes. And this music is intensely committed to escaping it.
  2. New York's disco–?new wave party people are in freak mode on their third disc Night Work, dropping crass come-ons and slutty entendres like parade confetti (gay, straight, you name it).
  3. The Scissor Sisters' third nightlife-themed album, Night Work, is a return to the glittery, flamboyant pop of the group's 2004 self-titled debut

    Pure perfection. This CD is the pop fix I have been anxiously awaiting for the past 10 years. Lady GaGa aside, the lack of good pop hooks in Pure perfection. This CD is the pop fix I have been anxiously awaiting for the past 10 years. Lady GaGa aside, the lack of good pop hooks in mainstream music is a crime. Night Work delivers the hooks in spades. With tempered beats, synth lines, and Shears' vocals, this album feels like a blend of Bee Gees, Human League, Pet Shop Boys, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, disco-glam, and a dash of rock opera. My only issue with Night Work, is that I cannot seem to stop listening to it. I guess I'm just a hopeless addict. Full Review »
