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.

Danity Kane-Welcome To The Dollhouse

Blowing up off of the tv reality series, Making The Band, their self titled debut album went platinum. Now DK is back, battling with the boys and creating their second album, going for "international pop status" do they make it? Bad Girl: Danja from the start brings you into the mood the girls want, a high tempo dark club feel. As the shrieking squeaky effects mixed with heavy synths and fitting drums, the girls sing on the hook "maybe I'm just a bad girl" with layered vocals. Missy Elliott drops a fitting guest performance, but the track seems a little hollow. No doubt the banging beat and sassy vocals work, but it could have been better, as it seems the production is a little overpowering. 3.5/5 Damaged: Stereotypes bouncy and club ready production is the perfect remedy for the girls single. Its catchiness and club bounce are incredibly addictive. The vocals work well together with each member blending well and creating a solid hit. This is by far their best single so far and should smash clubs. 4.5/5 Pretty Boy: Danja is back again with a squeaky shriek effect, dense drum instrumentation, as the girls get talk about a pretty boy that is intended to be an all out party. Though the hook is quite catchy and sounds good, the verses I have to say are overpowered by the overbusy production. You seem to focus more on the beat than the girls, as they seem to get lost, no matter how good their vocals are. 3/5 Strip Tease: This time Danja brings Timbo styled beat boxing with synth bounce and string arrangements. The singing here is much clearer and it is straight up sexy. Once again though, the production is way too dense and really makes the track busier than it needs to be. It bumps though and their sexy swagger on this is welcomed. 3/5 Sucka For Love: Bryan Michael Cox production is light and bouncy, which is a relief due to the overly dense productions earlier. However the singing here, just really isn't engaging or connecting as it needs to be. The treatment sounds right, it just seems oddly held back, while its enjoyable, the voices seem not at full height. Its a decent track. 3/5 Ecstasy: The Runners produced "Ecstasy" is one of the better tracks. Ross' appearance isn't bad, not necessary but doesn't effect the track positively or negatively. The singing is nicely done here and the verses are beautifully sung, as the spacy feel relates well to the track. 3.5/5 2 Of You: Bryan Michael Cox delivers a clap catchy rhythm and this one definitely works. The groove on this is irresistably catchy and fits DK's persona. Despite the corny "got me havin breakfast in the afternoon", the track is a highlight on the album. The bridge is well done. 4/5 Lights Out: Diddy & Winans come up with a synthy groove that has some funk. It works nicely, with each member bringing their style and personality to the track. This is another solid track, partially written by DK member, Dawn. 3.5/5 Poetry: With so many up tempo tracks, DK slow things down piano midtempo. The track is really where each member shows their skills, expressing deep emotion. It could definitely become a hit, as it seems radio ready. 4/5 Key To My Heart: The synth heavy "Key To My Heart" seems more of an interlude, as the track is extremely short. Its decent but it seems out of place and isn't that memorable. 2.5/5 Is Anybody Listening: Synth grumbles with a midtempo feel, the track is a decent ender. Its likeable and smooth but nothing great. Enjoyable smooth ending that isn't bad. 3/5 Ain't Going: A bouncy club cut that feature all of the groups/individuals of Making The Band 4. Its a decent track but is more for fun than anything else. It was the theme song for the show. 3/5 I know and understand that the girls were going for a club killing pop sound. However, the first half of the tracks that aim for this, feature way too dense productions by Danja. I'm sure fans of the show will love this album and think it is a great album, but the tracks feature more focus on the production than the actual singing. Which is an unfortunate circumstance because the girls are definitely talented. Also, the problem they struggled with on their first album, was finding their right sound and since they have grown (each member show significant growth throughout) it is sad to see minimal vocal contributions on these tracks. That out of the way, lead single "Damaged" is a perfect balance of club production and enough vocals that make the track their best single so far. "Pretty Boy" and "Bad Girl" share that squeaky effect, with the latter being the better of the two. "Strip Tease" is a sexy decent track, "Sucka For Love" falters to being too dull and safe, while "Key To My Heart" is out of place. The main strength of the album is the mid half, "2 Of You" is an excellent catchy clap Bryan Michael Cox beat, "Lights Out" is a funky fun cut, "Poetry" is a smooth and deep emotion sung midtempo and "Is Anybody Listening" is a decent ender. Overall the album is a growth for the girls in their voices, but bogged down by some missteps in production, the album isn't the complete transformation, they may have been looking for. Anybody who watched the Making The Band show cop it, and possibly some club pop fans as well. Solid album, just not quite the extroardinary album, fans may have been looking for. Rating: 7 out of 10
