  • Summary: The sophomore album for the dance pop group includes guest appearances by Snoop Dogg, R Kelly, Missy Elliot, and Polow da Don.

  1. The Pussycats' debut from 2005 was that kind of disc, and though this follow-up tries darn hard to follow that formula, it comes up just short.
  2. Ms. Scherzinger’s small, flexible voice thrives in the programmed, computer-tuned R&B tracks.
  3. The Dolls' bark is as big as their bite.
  4. With 15 cuts in all, the album sounds like the Dolls just threw everything they had against the charts to see if anything would stick.

    Like most big pop groups, they're great at singles--Rodney Jerkins' 'When I Grow Up' fashionably disses fame-- but fail when it comes to albums. [Dec 2008, p.115]
  6. Digging out this handful of songs from the 16-track proper album-- inflated to as much as 24 tracks with the bonus disc added in--is flat-out exhausting, necessitating trawling through too many dull beats, breathy bleats, a phoned-in Snoop Dogg cameo and Missy Elliot name-dropping Katy Perry.
  7. As it turns out, Scherzinger’s not interesting enough on her own, so she’s padding out her shtick with four glorified backup singers in tow.

    Being a huge fan of the Dolls for many years now and i can honestly say i am not disappointed. Sure it's note revolutionary or even Being a huge fan of the Dolls for many years now and i can honestly say i am not disappointed. Sure it's note revolutionary or even going to leave much of a mark in POP/RnB history, but for what it is, fun, breezy, and overwhelmingly catchy, for me that's all i need to get me through the day. Don't forget they are a whole package aswell, Great singers, Phenomenal dancers and great entertainers. Go PCD!!! Expand

    I really have no idea why critics hate this album and the girls too.

Sure, Nicole sings on almost every track and we don't hear the other girls but it's still a pretty good album with solid tracks and something for everybody. I don't know why critics miss that point. Not a bad album, good, but not great. Expand

I like the first 12 tracks and after that there are about 3 lifeless offerings. That's it! The production is spot on and the songs are quite distinct from each other in style. If your a fan of fun albums and disposable hip hop, then check it out! If your looking for serious hip hop album....keep looking. Expand

    Aside from a few songs, the Pussycat Doll's Domination falls incredibly short. The few songs that garnered public notice and made the Aside from a few songs, the Pussycat Doll's Domination falls incredibly short. The few songs that garnered public notice and made the albuma success are the only pieces on the album that are able to hold their own. In an album full of guest appearance and stylized pop beats, it seems the pussycat dolls are out of steam... yet again. Expand

    How can an album, like this pile of sh*t, have an average of 51?! This album is a shame! First: it's not a Pussycat Dolls' album, How can an album, like this pile of sh*t, have an average of 51?! This album is a shame! First: it's not a Pussycat Dolls' album, it's a Nicole's one. Next: the songs are so KITSCH, bad, ... (The only one who's "so so" is "When I grow Up"). The rest is to burn! Believe me: just don't buy it! Only if you want to kill your ears, the most precious things (with the eyes. To see girls like Nicole dancing on the streets?!) Expand
