    Sadly, this song hasn't grown on me yet; it still sounds like a rather tame remix of a good Scissor Sisters ballad. The video isn't helping its cause very much either. What happened to the guys in a state of semi-undress as seen in the behind-the-scenes photos? Why wasn't there more Ana? etc. I agree that the amazing Invisible Light video (Belle De Jour! Inferno! Amazing.) set the bar incredibly high for the future, though.

    I actually think it's a great video for a lead single to a new 4th album. There's drama, anticipation, hints of the band members in a mysterious "goo" situation, and then the climactic, explosive multi-colored orgasmic release.

    And most importantly it has me so curious about what to expect with the rest of the album! BRING IT ON, Scissters!!

    Awful video. So tedious.

    I hate myself for this but I have made a total 180 on this song. It's awesome. And it took one watch of the admittedly pointless video to feel like that. There must be subliminal messaging in it.

    I love both song and video. I agree with - crap, I can't remember, thank you absolutely useless 'Topic Review' - that it is an excellent new album teaser if not exactly a Big Pop Moment.

    European tour in the fall....I think.

    There coming to Belgium on the 8th of October anyway.

    Too bad i'm moving away in the summer.

    This is old (and maybe already posted) but this live version of 'San Louis Obispo' sounds absolutely melancholically beautiful.

    Also, there's a special version of the album with an extra DVD with a tracklist that goes :


    So, the tweeted underwear pics were probably for the 'Baby Come Home' - video ?

    Also, they released some tourdates a while ago :

    That review is waaay too optimistic, haha "LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO DISLIKE!!" yes love I'm sure. I'm also cautious because he prefers Only The Horses over Shady Love. I'll just wait this one out without getting too excited!
     
  11. Re: Scissor Sisters - Magic Hour (Album + Singles)

    I agree RMX.

    Obviously a song written by Elton John about Kiki Dee?
     
  14. Re: Scissor Sisters - Magic Hour (Album + Singles)

    I've had a listen to the album. Basically there are lots of decent tracks but it can't quite make up its mind whether it wants to be "funky, filthy Scissor Sisters" we recognise from early on or "plodding 'Fire With Fire' anthem Scissor Sisters'. 'Shady Love' and 'Let's Have A Kiki" are the best things on it, but they annoy you as you realise that the whole album could be as frenetically off the wall.

    Ugh. Not available in Belgium.

    Annoyed.

    And work and turn and hun-hun-honey

    I love it, but I think my laptop speakers aren't doing it justice. That beat goes hard!

    OMG I'm loving "Kiki" but it's 6:30am here and I'm dancing around my apartment and getting hyper from it, haha!!
