    A disappointing album, Scissor Sisters show no improvement with their new release. In fact. they have taken a step backwards production wise with an even more retro approach. While their previous album was refreshing, hip, and sexy; they have gone overboard with the 70's feel invading both their song writing and their production. This all leads to an album that sounds like an actual A disappointing album, Scissor Sisters show no improvement with their new release.

This all leads to an album that sounds like an actual album from the 70's. Rather than adding anything new to the genre they sound boring and more of an imitation of the real thing. Expand

    Catchy, but too outdated and plastic to be enjoyable. Listen to the Bee Gees instead.

    Smacks more of a tribute band than the real deal. The singing is so-so and the sound is ripped off from Abba-Gees-Summer-Queen-somethin-somethin.

    They sound joyous even when they're miserable. [Oct 2006, p.96]
  2. Even some of the kickiest stuff has an unexpected emotional punch.
  3. Despite embracing the styles of decades past (specifically, the piano-driven pop of [Elton] John and the Bee Gees' disco-riffic ditties), the Sisters still manage to sound unique.
