I really like the song "Take Your Mama." I'm thinking of buying the whole album. I've listened to a few clips of songs on iTunes and they are really good! They're very glam rock...

I agree. They're a breath of fresh air. At first, I thought the song, "Take your mama " was by Elton John.

...I wouldn't call them 'glam rock', really. They're more 'dancey' then 'glam'.

I agree.. a lot like Elton, with a bit of early Wham! and some late 80s Prince thrown in too. Very cool video and a fun song.

It seems to be a trend of rip-off artists coming up lately...

First The Darkness rip-off Queen.

now

Scissor Ssister rip-off Elton John.


WHERE HAS ORIGINALITY GONE FOR GOD'S SAKE!?

'Take your Mama' reminds me of Elton's 'Island Girl' a lot.

Although I'd rate the Scissor Sisters slightly above the usual chart fare, I will never, ever, ever, EVER forgive them for their abysmal version of 'Comfortably Numb'. (And don't give me any of that 'Ironic' crap as an excuse).

I like them though (I mean I've only heard two songs) and I'd be interested in the CD. Jake Shears is hot and pity he's gay. :-(

How are Scissor Sisters like Elton John? They sound nothing like him. They sing high, he doesnt. His songs are mainly piano, there's aren't. Elton has got a really low voice.

That's the exact same comment people make to defend The Darkness to say that they sound nothing like Queen.

Take Your Mama Out, rather somewhat reminded me of 'Rock Of The Westies' & 'Blue Moves' (the funkier) era EJ. Very 'imitator' like vocals reminiscent Reg himself. Scissor Sisters opened for EJ this summer I recall on his UK dates.

Haven't heard more than 2 songs from them though. 'Laura' wasn't really impressive to me.

Nice 'valid' arguments there Blackadder, you're the expert.

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm in that post, pma?

If you guys are going to say nothing's original nowadays then tell me, What is original? Arent every rock artist who came out after The Beatles copying them? So some people think Scissors sound like Elton John. I still think they're good.
