Scissor Sisters had both hipsters and homemakers cutting a rug with their 2004 self-titled debut (which gave this New York City outfit the biggest-selling album in the U.K. that year). Now they've put their boogie shoes back on for their second CD, Tah-dah, which is as delightful as its title. Don't be fooled by the melancholy sentiment of the disco-fied first single, "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'"; cowritten by Elton John (who also plays keyboards), it's got the kind of irresistible bounce that would shake anybody out of the dumps. Even when they leave the dance floor—on tracks like the atmospheric, Duran Duran-esque "The Other Side" and the dreamily romantic "I Just Might Tell You Tonight"—Scissor Sisters exhibit sharp pop instincts.
