"Unfortunately, Ta-Dah! didn't sell quite as much as their debut (even I was disappointed with it - at first), but over time things can grow on you and many of the songs off that album have done just that! It's a good album, and you really should pick it up. Lucky for you, there is a live cd included (all of the songs appeared on Ta-Dah, none of the earlier stuff featured on the dvd). The live performance is filmed in widescreen, using mostly wide lenses to capture everything, which is dazzling and colorful. Fans will like the stage design, with their signature logo prominently lit up.
Songs performed @ the O2 are as follows:
She's My Man. I Can't Decide. T(i)ts On The Radio. Laura. Lights. Skins. Contact High. Take Your Mama. Music Is The Victim. Might Tell You Tonight. The Other Side. Comfortably Numb. Kiss You Off. Paul McCartney. Land Of A Thousand Words. Filthy / Gorgeous. Mary. Return To Oz. I Don't Feel Like Dancin'.
The documentary section opens with some suspense: they're on their way to go on stage and get stuck in an elevator! The rest features an assortment of interviews and segments from the various (mostly European) media appearances promoting the new album. At one point, you get to see how the incredible video for "She's My Man" was filmed. You actually see the fully-lit single take it was shot in, replete with directions being spoken to them the whole time.
There's an intimate 25 minute acoustic set featuring: Lights. Land Of A Thousand Words. I Don't Feel Like Dancin'. She's My Man.
Pretty cool, and quite a contrast from what you're used to hearing.
Four music videos are included, all spectacularly filmed and edited (especially "Land Of A Thousand Words", which plays exactly like a classic James Bond opening credit sequence, and at an ultra-wide aspect ratio of 3:1!!).
You really get your money's worth with this dvd / cd combo and if you're a Sisters fan it's a must-have."

"Excellent on its own merits, but also for comparison and contrast with "We Are Scissor Sisters..." to see how far they have come in terms of popularity in Europe and in terms of the production quality. The unplugged sessions and the addition of the live set of "Transistor" are amazing. Plus, the bonus CD of live tracks from "Ta Dah" makes this a good value. Would have preferred to see more interviews of the lesser known members such as Paddy and Del, but the interviews presented are insightful and entertaining.
Pity they never have quite caught on in the US to the degree they have abroad, but perhaps that works to our benefit; it keeps them at the smaller venues where we can get closer up to the front row."
Hurrah for the Scissor Sisters!

"Latecomer to Scissor Sisters, and this was a great way to enjoy a great collection of their songs. DTS 5.1 sound rocks!! Very happy with the 2 disk package. I'm not usually a fan of recorded live concerts, but this DVD has fantastic sound. If you have any interest in the Sisters, you'll want this in your collection."
