Jan 5, 2011Despair is very much with us. It'll blow up before it recedes. And this music is intensely committed to escaping it.
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
By matching their sound so adriotly to the content of their songs, Scissor Sisters makes Night Work an album of real structural sophistication.
Scissor Sisters are record fans from way back, so they structure nearly every element of Night Work to relive the heady days of AOR (aka album-oriented rock).
Jake Shears and Ana Matronic trot out those Bee Gees harmonies again over Moroder-style synth runs and glam guitars, delivering a stirring anthem about how for some disaffected folks, nightclubbing time is business time.
The album is a dizzying, infectious experience in which throbbing, Moroder-influenced beats never slacken and Shears rarely misses a chance to leer at that hunk across the dancefloor.
Night Work is a pastiche of Scissors Sisters' former glories that sees the band desperately sewing together the leftover scraps of their idols in a vain attempt to recapture the pertinence of their debut.

AndyCJul 1, 2010Pure 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.… Expand

Stuart Price and the Sisters are a match made in pop heaven. From start to finish it's a thrilling piece of work. It has pop, rock, dance. euphoria, funk and electronica, the lyrics are clever, funny, cheeky, moving and down-right catchy. It's filled with melody, dance-ability, strong vocals and non-stop likeability. It's modern, yet highly nostalgic, but never feels unoriginal. An epic pop album that deserves to sell a billion copies.… Expand
