Album Review

Danity Kane exist in a strange netherworld of pop culture, where you either know everything about the girl group or you know nothing about them. Despite debuting at the top of the Billboard charts with their eponymous 2006 debut, on its way to eventual platinum sales, the group didn't seem to make any impact outside of MTV, the place where their construction was meticulously, endlessly documented on the third season of Making the Band. The popularity of Making the Band 3 pushed Danity Kane into the Top Ten, and the very existence of a Making the Band 5 featuring DK and subsequent MTB winners Day 26 and Donnie J, all making albums at the same time and jockeying for success, no doubt gave hope to Danity Kane and their producers that the group's second album, Welcome to the Dollhouse, might also achieve a high chart placement. All five of the DK girls are conventionally pretty in their voices (not to mention their looks), and were picked for the group because they're pliable. Although they thoroughly disappear into these productions, dense on rhythms but lacking hooks, there are some notable tracks — "2 of You" has slinky rhythms that make up for the nonsensical "you've got me having breakfast in the afternoon" refrain and "Lights Out" has an appealing dose of Minneapolis funk in its keyboard, as does "Key to My Heart," which shimmers slyly. Nevertheless, hearing Welcome to the Dollhouse will be most interesting if you've witnessed the labors on Making the Band.

Stylish Fun

For what it lacks, Danity Kane's sophomore album, "Welcome to the Dollhouse", is a strong and stylish release from the group. Overall, the girls seem more comfortable and grounded here then on their debut. Time and experience has proven to be a valuable asset to the ladies. The album opens with the dynamic "Bad Girl", which is rich with energy, and drips with electronic sensuality. The fast-paced "Damaged" has the girls singing about getting over a past love, and their voices blend magically as they harmonize over the creative beats of producer, Stereotype. When the album is done right, it makes for fun, playful, and often times, silly gestures of ear candy; this is well heard on "Pretty Boy", which is possibly my favorite track of the album. While the album has plenty of club bangers and energetic songs, the slowness of a ballad has not been overlooked. "Poetry" is not the best ballad released from Danity Kane, its lyrics run close to cheesy, but it is still a solid tender ballad for the ladies out there. Danity Kane makes the most of their mid-tempo jams although, with both "Strip Tease" and "Ecstasy" bringing 'on-the-sexy' and keeping the album from falling into dangerous repetitive territory. Obviously this album isn't supposed to be considered a masterpiece of its time, but music with an uplifting vibe such as this is greatly needed. Danity Kane has fought to create an album that, surprisingly, exceeds the level of mediorcrity so many of their peers seem to embrace. With Pop, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Dance elements all found in their music, Danity Kane should have no problem broadening their listening audience with this well-crafted album.

best album of 08

i just heard this Cd and its one of the best albums of 08 so far! the songs are ALL great with great vocals and crazy dance beats, and there are some nice powerful slow songs.this album is very different from there 1st but this one is sooo much better and thats thinkin that there 1st album was amazing and one of the best albums of 06. This album is great with different types of moods,and u should def. buy it,

great material showcases DK talent and range -- buy

It is so great to see how the snippets from the tv shows have become a wonderful set of songs. And their growth from a shellshocked group from when that DJ called them "3", to the talented performers they are today is amazing. And I personally think it is valuable that they all appear to take the lead on different songs, so that they have a breadth of fun songs, which are all still stay consistent to the group. On the downside... I don't know if anyone would notice if Striptease, Is Anybody Listening, Key to My Heart and/or 2 of You were removed from the album... just not eventful songs to me. but I'm just one person. Long story short though -- buy. . .and if you have been following the show -- definitely buy. It will be interesting to see if Day 26 has this much depth of good material on their album. Best songs imo Pretty Boy Lights Out Totally pleasant Damaged Sucka for Love Secret Place Interlude (it's only a minute, but it's a good minute) Anthems Bad Girl Damaged (seriously, how are ya gonna fix it, fix it fix it?) that's just plain catchy Poetry and Ain't Going is like a Day 26 teaser... so that's a win win.
