Album Review

There's a kind of beautifully perverse brilliance to the Pussycat Dolls. Not only are they a sextet who got their start as neo-burlesque dancers in Los Angeles, but they make no bones about being a gleefully manufactured dance-pop act. Open the booklet for their 2005 debut, PCD, and their artificiality is made clear: the first page reads "All lead and background vocals by Nicole Scherzinger," a former member of Eden's Crush, the failed prefab teen pop group assembled on the WB's pre-American Idol reality music show Popstars. There is no pretense that Kimberly, Carmit, Ashley, Melody, and Jessica are there for anything besides filling out the illusion that this is a real performing musical group and providing some serious eye candy for a group that is all about the visuals. The great thing about PCD is that the producers and songwriters behind the album — and, since this is a big-budget urban dance-pop album in the mid-2000s, there are many credited writers and producers — are eager to play with the Pussycat Dolls' hyper-sexual image, creating a sleek, sexy sound ideal for both nightclubs and strip joints across this great land. And, at least at first, the songs are about how irresistibly sexy the Pussycat Dolls are, starting with the genius hit single "Don't Cha," where Nicole and the rest of the Pussycats strut around, taunting a hapless man with such come-ons as "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me/Don't cha wish your girlfriend was a freak like me." There has never been a sex song quite as knowingly ironic yet undeniably sexy as this, and for a while the album keeps the momentum up, first with will.i.am's "Beep," a rewrite of Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps," except this is funny, not embarrassing, and since Nicole is sexier than the Peas' Fergie, it's also sultrier. Timbaland's "Wait a Minute" is in the same vein and, for a brief moment, it seems like PCD will be that rare thing: a mainstream club/dance album devoted to nothing but dance songs. Then, reality comes crashing in with the fourth song, "Stickwitu," the inevitable romantic slow jam whose sappiness undercuts the joyous carnal celebration of the first three songs. Although the rest of the album has more dance tunes than ballads — and some catchy ones, too, like Beyoncé-styled "I Don't Need a Man" — the album never quite recovers, since the fantasy of a girl group that's only it for the sex, not love, has been ruined. Since that fantasy is the very reason the Pussycat Dolls exist as either a dance troupe or a pop group, it's a bit of a disappointment, but PCD is still worthwhile because there enough good cuts to make it a fun soundtrack to parties or strip clubs, even if there aren't quite enough to make this the camp classic that the beginning of the album suggests it could have been.

Customer Reviews

Awesome Breakout Group

This album is awesome. The dance songs: Don't Cha, Beep and Wait a Minute are all unqiue and catchy, sure to be hits! Buttons is one of the sexiest songs ever! Stickwitu, How Many Times, How Many Lies are awesome slow songs! Hot Stuff (Want You Back) is an awesome example of a great cover as is Tainted Love. Bite the Dust, Right Now and Feelin' Good are all great as well! This album is a true pleasure to listen to! The best songs are Buttons,How Many Times, How Many Lies, Beep and Wait a Minute! Make sure you download them!

When it's good it's good. When it's bad...it's worse.

Songs such as Don't Cha, Wait a Minute, I Don't Need a Man (hehe) and Hot Stuff (Want You Back) will be quickly surpassing the Black Eyed Peas on my Top Ten. Catchy beats and nice lyric's, ah, these tracks would make the CD go so much higher if a bunch of nasties wasn't inbetween. There are a few other good ones in there that I haven't purchased yet, because they didn't jump out and throw me against a wall and demand me to buy them. If they extraced the pointless crap, I'm sure they would've had the limelight for longer.

Awesome new group!

There are some good songs like Don't Cha and Stickwitu. Also Hot stuff (want you back) and tainted love are remakes but they're but than the first version
