Scissor Sisters is the debut studio album by the American pop rock band Scissor Sisters, originally released in February 2004 via Polydor Records.

Formed in 2001, Scissor Sisters include Jake Shears and Ana Matronic as vocalists, Babydaddy as a multi-instrumentalist, Del Marquis as lead guitar/bassist, and Randy Real as the drummer. Often incorporating diverse and innovative styles in their music, but tending towards pop rock, glam rock, nu-disco, and electroclash, Scissor Sisters came to prominence following the release of their Grammy-nominated and chart-topping disco version of the Pink Floyd classic song "Comfortably Numb". 

The album is a gleaming composite of epic, unabashedly pretty '70s songwriting and fancy-pants disco hedonism, reflecting the decadent dance-pop afterglow of all that George Michael wrought.

Side A of the album is an absolute cracker, kicking off with Laura, a really catchy dance number followed by Take Your Mama with it's percussive dance rhythms, which are bound to get you moving off your chair and onto a dance floor. As for Comfortably Numb, who would have thought that this classic Pink Floyd guitar and progressive rock styled song could be turned into something almost completely unrecognisable; that's what a great cover song should do. The Scissor Sisters absolutely make Comfortably Numb their own. Then Mary is like a power ballad with a really strong melody and piano driven arrangement to unwind the listener from the previous three power tracks. The side wraps up with another strong song Lovers In The Backseat. Oh, heaven on an album - not bad for a debut record!

Produced by Jake Shears, Scissor Sisters brought the band universal acclaim. Although the album was not as successful in their native US, peaking at #102 on the Billboard 200, it reached the #1 spot on the UK and Irish albums charts, and was the best-selling album of 2004 in the UK. Since its release it has been certified 9x Platinum in the UK, selling over 2,100,000 copies in that country alone, and 5x Platinum in Ireland, with a total of 3,300,000 copies sold worldwide.

The album won Best International Album at the 2005 BRIT Awards. 

Five singles were released from the album: "Laura", "Comfortably Numb", "Take Your Mama", "Mary", and "Filthy/Gorgeous".

This is a Music On Vinyl Limited Edition release of 1,000 Copies, Individually Numbered on Pink 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with Insert, pressed in Europe.
