Scissor Sisters - Magic Hour
There are actually songs on this album that strike very close to home to me and I have a much stronger reaction to them then I do to others. "Baby Come Home" and "Best In Me" need to be on the soundtrack to my life because they are my songs. I've lived them both and I think there are a lot of people out there that have done the same. There seems to be more music on this that has a very personal connection. I think "Only The Horses" is an amazingly romantic song. The thought that you can just get so lost in someone that modern means cannot be used to bring you back. The tone is so somber on the tracks without them trying to force it.
There have been other reviews that don't give them credit for the ballads on this album and want it to be an all out party like other albums have been but I appreciate what they've done because it shows range and depth. It's no secret that I am very biased. They are my favorite band and it's hard for me to find any bad in their work. There are a few tracks that are a bit slower than others and there are a few that may take a little getting used too but all in all they all have a place and you just have to figure out where they belong in your soundtrack.
Get the album because it's worth it. Get the album because they deserve it.
