“I always wanted to be a superstar”, Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger confesses in “When I Grow Up”, the lead track on the group’s sophomore album, Doll Domination. With the aid of such hit producers as Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Sean Garrett, and Polow Da Don, the Dolls build on the platinum success of their first outing with pumping beats, swirling synth backdrops, and chant-along choruses. There’s plenty of sass served up on these tracks, with “Whatcha Think About That” (featuring Missy Elliott on vocals) and “Whatchmacallit” standing out for their relentless grooves and take-no-mess attitudes. Tracks like “Bottle Pop” (a teasing tune boosted by a Snoop Dogg cameo) and “Out of This Club” (an easy-gliding number guest starring R. Kelly) provide plenty of frothy fun. The real revelations come with the album’s bittersweet slow jams. “I Hate This Part”, “Halo", and “Happily Never After” are acoustic-accented breakup ballads that take the Dolls beyond their usual party mode into something more tender.
Takin' Over The World
Their debut brought us amazing singles, but overall the album itself wasn't THAT strong. Doll Domination however, is a perfect pop album. It's a blend of uptempo R&B/Pop like When I Grow Up, Bottle Pop & Watchamacallit, mixed with mid-tempos like Elevator, Whatcha Think About That (feat. Missy Elliott), Halo and Takin' Over The World, and on top of that there's some beautiful ballads like I Hate This Part (a must have track for anyone who likes pop music), Hush Hush and Happily Never After. If you're too stingy or stupid to buy the whole album then at least get these tracks: In Person (crazy production: probably the best thing Timbaland's ever produced & amazing vocals) Elevator (we finally get to hear a song centred around Melody's vocals and it's so addictive) Magic (BANGER!!) I Hate This Part (bets on this being the UK Xmas #1?)
The Pussycat Dolls are Definatley going to Dominate the World!
This album is brilliant! I Love it, it's so much better then their previous album "PCD", The Pussycat Dolls have improved so much. I must say, the years since the last album they have worked extremely hard and produced a top class album, something for everyone to listen to with R&B Beats, Ballads, and Club bangers, theres nothing on here you will dislike. When I Grow Up is Wicked!, then the electronic "Bottle Pop" with featured Rapper (Snoop Dogg) and produce a excellent dance song. Watcha Think About That with Missy Elliott totaly rules, the Ballad I Hate This Part is a brilliant vocal song with most of the Pussycat Dolls acctually sing on this track, Takin' Over The World is awesome! with a middle eastern flute throughout the song with a Lovley base Rythmn. Out of this Club is good, Who's Gonna Love You (Is acctually) a Previous track Nicole (the lead singer) was going to have on her album "Her Name Is Nicole..." but was never released. Happily Ever After is another good song, Halo has to be one of my favourites on the album! It bloody rocks, the Music production here flows really well, the Chorous "I'm sorry I couldn't wear your Halo....I'm sorry I couldnt be your angel" are beautiful lyrics. In Person is a dancy track, and Elevator is yet another awesome song..Melody's vocals from "0:34 - 0:46" sound amazing, And its A.C.E. how all the Pussycat Dolls have a chance to sing on this album, as the previous album all you could hear was "Nicole", even though there was nothing wrong with that, its just nice to hear other Dolls from the group. Hush Hush is a ballad, Love The Way You Love Me is a good song, Lovin' the gutiar in the background from the start of the song and hearing music from the beach. Watchamacallit, I'm Done, Lights Camera Action and Finally Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps are all good finishing songs. The Dolls have seriously worked hard on this album and blows the previous album "PCD" out of the water. Watch out other girl groups, The Pussycat Dolls are going to Dominate the music scene. iPod Picks, When I Grow Up Bottle Pop Takin' Over The World Magic Halo Elevator Love The Way You Love Me & Lights, Camera, Action 10/10
Not as good.
What did we wait for ... well not much. The sound has a more mature feel. Which with alot of the tracks this means a slower beat. OK, if thats what you you like. There is also a feeling of over production and in some cases under production. After all tracks done I just wanted to get the first cd on and remember them for the group that I liked. I dont think the album is bad. If you do buy this then forget what you know about PCD (When I grow up is the only track I recognise as PCD) and then you will appreciate it more. Listening to it first if you can.
