Synopsis

Album Description
"Inside every woman is a Pussycat Doll," says Robin Antin, the creator of the singing-and-dancing ensemble that has risen from underground cool to major-label hot. "It's about female empowerment, about being confident with who you are. It's about singing and dancing in front of a mirror by yourself and having fun."With their debut album released by A&M Records in summer 2005 (led by "Don't Cha," a duet with Busta Rhymes, written and produced by Cee-Lo), the Pussycat Dolls go beyond being extraordinarily beautiful. With tremendous voices, and after working with today's top songwriters and producers, the Pussycat Dolls are ready to stamp their mark on music and on attitudes. "To me, a Pussycat Doll is fearless but also vulnerable," says lead singer Nicole Scherzinger. "We're strong but we like to play too. The line in 'Don't Cha'--'don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me'--is meant to be empowering. The Pussycat Dolls are not about just being hot but also about saying something with real feeling."From Scherzinger, who earlier scored a Top 10 album and single while in girl group Eden's Crush, to Jessica Sutta, the one-time captain of the Miami Heat dance troupe; from Carmit Bachar, the La Vida Loca girl on Ricky Martin's world tour, to Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt, two of the most talented young dancers in Hollywood, and Melody Thornton, a stunning singer chosen from an open audition, these Pussycat Dolls are the new incarnation--more contemporary, more street--of the group whose Sunset Strip performances became the hippest ticket in Hollywood.

From stage to CD

"There's an old song that goes something like "Take ten terrific girls but only nine costumes, and you'll have a burlesque show". This song came to mind when I found out that "The Pussycat Dolls" is a very popular burlesque act, which has been hitting the stages of LA and Vegas, in hot spots like Johnny Depp's Viper Room (gratuitous Johnny Depp plug here), The Roxy and Caesars Palace, since 1993.

Led most of the way by Carmen Electra, the group has attracted many guest performers over the years, including Christina Aguilera (why does this not surprise me?), Pamela Anderson (ditto), Christina Applegate, Fergie, Paris Hilton (she's everywhere), Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, Kelly Osborne, Pink, Britney Spears (!), Gwen Stefani and Charlise Theron, among others.

With that kind of "People Magazine"-caliber celebrity attention, it's only natural that a CD would follow, this one fronted by Nicole Scherzinger, a former member of Eden's Crush, who also contributed to Shaggy's new album.

Hot lead off single "Don't Cha" features Buster Rhymes, and teases the male fans with the catchy chorus "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?" The second track "Beep" features Will.I.Am of The Black Eyed Peas (another contributor to the Shaggy album), and this one would fit comfortably in any BEP album. The Top Three of the album is completed by "Wait a Minute" featuring Timbaland.

Other tracks to note are - well they all kind of sound alike from here on, except for the covers of "Hot Stuff" and "Tainted Love", which, frankly sound like something from a burlesque show.

This album plays shamelessly on the Dolls' popularity on stage, but there are also two bonus tracks of their soundtrack songs "Sway" (Shall We Dance?), and "We Went as Far as We Felt Like Going" (Shark Tale)

A good album, all things considered, and a likely candidate for a Trivial Pursuit Pop Trivia answer in a future edition. Rated 3.5 stars

""PCD" may stand for Pussycat Dolls, but for all I know, it could also stand for Pretty Crappy Drivel. Jeez, how much lower can the music industry stoop? Now, don't get me wrong. I like guilty pleasure pop as much as the next Spice Girls or Justin Timberlake fan, but "PCD" is guilty pleasure pop that's high on guilt and low on pleasure. "Don't Cha" is passable radio-fluff; imagine a filtered-down Destiny's Child with just a fraction of Beyonce's sass. "Stickwitchu" and "Waitaminute" go in one ear and right out the other, and they have the unmitigated gall to ruin "Tainted Love," a old tune Soft Cell made famous back in 1982. Would anyone old enough to remember Soft Cell's version appreciate the Pussycat Dolls' version? Highly unlikely. "PCD" gets the dubious honor for making a great argument in favor of copy-protected CDs. That's because no kind person should rip and burn music this bad for his/her friends."
