Collectibles #11: Scissor Sisters Ta-Dah (2006)

This is the second album from the US rockers, who first came onto the scene with their successful self-titled debut album in 2004, which became the best-selling album in the UK that year.

Since then, they have followed up with an even bigger success, Ta-Dah, which hit the #1 spot as well. They accomplished a double when lead single I Don't Feel Like Dancin' spent four weeks at the summit of the UK Singles chart too.

The track was co-written by Elton John and he played piano on the track too. The track features the falsetto vocals of lead singer Jake Shears, reminiscent of The Bee Gees sound. The uptempo and uplifting tune characterises the Scissor Sisters attitude, that is, not to take life too seriously and just have fun.

This Collector's Edition Double CD Set is pretty neat. It comes in a cardboard case where the art cover is that of a lift lobby. Pull out the tab on the right side and the image reveals the CD booklet hidden behind. The two CDs also slide out on the left and right sides of the box. Also included is a small souvenir poster, which is too small to do any good. The bonus CD contains six tracks, one of which is the Paper Faces Remix of I Don't Feel Like Dancin'.
