This is the sound of a band truly enjoying themselves in the studio, confident enough in their abilities to freely collaborate with other big names.

As the hot dog is engrained in so much of American culture, the Scissor Sisters are a crucial part of modern-day dance music, skillfully combining panache with vulnerability.

Accepting Magic Hour for what it is - that’s a record light on substance but packed to the rafters with melody - there are plenty of cheap thrills to get jiggy with.

While it is certainly admirable that the Scissor Sisters' creative vision is strong enough that they sound very much like themselves no matter who they work with, they really could have used a strong push from their collaborators this time around.
