"Land of a Thousand Words" was released as the second single from the album, peaking at number 19 in the UK. "She's My Man" was the third single released in early March 2007 and managed to chart at number 29. The next single that was released was "Kiss You Off" on May 28. This was the poorest charting of the singles of Ta-Dah, only being able to reach number 43. This has, so far, been the lowest charting UK single on initial release. "I Can't Decide" charted at number 64 on downloads alone, on the strength of being used in the Doctor Who episode "Last of the Time Lords".
The album entered the Irish Albums Chart at number one on September 21, followed three days later by a number one entry in the UK Albums Chart. In the United States, it debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 42,000 copies. As of May 2010 it has sold 181,000 copies in United States.

NME gave the album a score of six out of ten and said, "Scissor Sisters sound under so much pressure to follow up a monster hit that they're not actually having any fun." Similarly, Paste gave it a score of six out of ten and said that the songs "tend to dull the excitement."Tiny Mix Tapes gave it three-and-a-half out of five stars and said, "So what if Scissor Sisters aren't challenging the conventions of pop music?... [Ta-Dah is] great and will please their fans."musicOMH gave it four out of five stars and said, "There's a darker lyrical side to the album at once incongruous and ingenius when placed in such celebratory music."
However, some reviews varied from mixed to negative. PopMatters gave the album five stars out of ten and said, "Despite its title, Ta-Dah offers few surprises."Now gave it two stars out of five and said, "Somehow, Ta-Dah feels like the Sisters covering themselves, and the glitter and gloss have worn off." In his Consumer Guide, Robert Christgau gave it a "dud" rating (), indicating that it was "a bad record whose details rarely merit further thought."

*The UK Edition of the album has a pregap, consisting of two minutes of silence after "Everybody Wants the Same Thing". Subsequently, what seems to be the sound of an elevator reaching its destination floor is heard as an 8-second interlude at the end of the pregap. "Transistor" then begins.
