Desert Island Disc – Disc 4

The ongoing journey through my TopTen must have discs continues:
(Find disc 1, disc 2, disc 3)

Scissor Sisters – Scissor Sisters
Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters
This is probably one of the more recent additions on my list but I think will stand the test of time and still be worth a listen years from now too.
In 2004 the Scissor Sisters burst onto the scene like the 70’s lovechild of Elton John and Cher. They were a refreshing departure from the other chart topping (middle of the road) artists topping the charts at the time.
A blend of disco and glam rock (heavy on the glam) one can’t help but be sucked into the rhythms and beats.  Their breakthrough single a disco infused cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” is the best selling Pink Floyd cover in spite of being thought a sacrilege by diehard Floyd fans. Like other albums on my Top Ten this one also has a variety of sounds, although all the tracks have a 70’s tinge and disco hooks they range from thoughtful slow tracks like “Return to Oz” to twangy mid-tempo on “Take Your Mama” to full on floor-fillers like “Filthy/Gorgeous”. One thing is certain this album is never boring, there is always something fun and new coming up on the next track.
