Doll Domination [Deluxe Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
There's a perfectly good reason why the first single from Doll Domination, the Pussycat Dolls' second album, sports the punch line "When I Grow Up/I Want to Be Famous": despite a million-selling debut, the Pussycats aren't famous yet, a fact borne out by the disastrous non-launch of head Doll Nicole Scherzinger's scrapped solo debut Her Name Is Nicole. Heralded by several sexy magazine covers, the record was set for 2007 but disappeared after four singles failed to turn into hits. Maybe they weren't great songs, maybe the public didn't like them, but it's just as likely that even fans may not have known who she was, as her name was buried in the credits to PCD's...

There's a perfectly good reason why the first single from Doll Domination, the Pussycat Dolls' second album, sports the punch line "When I Grow Up/I Want to Be Famous": despite a million-selling debut, the Pussycats aren't famous yet, a fact borne out by the disastrous non-launch of head Doll Nicole Scherzinger's scrapped solo debut Her Name Is Nicole. Heralded by several sexy magazine covers, the record was set for 2007 but disappeared after four singles failed to turn into hits. Maybe they weren't great songs, maybe the public didn't like them, but it's just as likely that even fans may not have known who she was, as her name was buried in the credits to PCD's debut and despite all that skin she flashed on all those magazines, nobody really could tie that girl to this group. Every single thing about Doll Domination suggests that the powers that be at Interscope and the PCD organization decided that PCD was an insufficient launch pad for solo stardom, so they made the second album into a showcase for Nicole and the other four Dolls, none of whom you could possibly name or pick out in a Maxim lineup. On Doll Domination's cover, each Pussycat straddles her own motorcycle bedecked with the initial of her first name, while on the album each gets to sing lead on at least one track and on the double-disc deluxe version -- which clocks in at over 85 minutes, four minutes longer than Pink Floyd's The Wall -- each Pussycat gets a track credited to herself. Despite the parade of pretty, sculpted, generic R&B voices, there are some good tracks: the ever-reliable Kara DioGuardi helps give the shimmering '80s gloss of "Who's Gonna Love You" some shape and Ne-Yo's "Happily Never After" is a good ballad, and there's a Snoop Dogg cameo and Missy Elliot name-dropping Katy Perry. [A Deluxe Edition was also released.]
New York Times - Jon Pareles
In the 16 songs on this fully packed album, each striving to be a single, the Dolls still flirt and strut most of the time. But now, every so often, they ache.
Billboard
PCD's sophomore set has all the elements (self-assuring themes, sultry lyrics and lots of skin-tight latex) to mimic the victory of its 2005 debut, PCD.

    Clawing Their Way Back To The Top (Again)!

    I will cut to the chase: This album is ORGASMIC! The sound is original and upbeat, the lyrics are deep and sexy, and the vocalists are super HOT! Plus "Doll Domination" includes the anthem of Summer 2008 "When I Grow Up", and hit singles such as "Whatcha Think About That featuring Missy Elliot", and "I Hate This Part". Some other great songs in the album are "Bottle Pop featuring Snoop Dogg", "Whatchamacallit", "Magic", "If I Was A Man", "Space", "In Person", "Takin' Over The World", "Elevator", "Until U Love U" and "Who's Gonna Love You". This album sexy, hip, original, fresh, positive and just plain fun. So buy it if you like to be wild, while looking hot.
