Rather than trying to reinvent themselves for their third album, "Night Work" (Universal), the Scissor Sisters seemed bent on reinventing the dance music they loved instead. "Night Work" plays like a DJ set from 1986 - complete with elements of George Michael ("Whole New Way"), Devo ("Running Out") and Frankie Goes to Hollywood ("Invisible Light") - reworked for a more gay-friendly and Euro-loving time. With the single "Fire With Fire," where Jake Shears sounds like Elton John fronting Erasure, and the Madonna-ish "Skin Tight," the Scissor Sisters do their best to bridge generation gaps and built a whole new party vibe.
