Welcome to the Dollhouse review

New club hits from Danity Kane

To the splendid five-piece Danity Kane's fans great pleasure the girls have not made us wait too long and this spring release their sophomore effort Welcome To The Dollhouse. After the release of the eponymous debut album that went platinum the marvelous band working under the careful leadership of Sean Diddy Combs took part in Christina Aguilera's tour as an opening act along with The Pussicat Dolls and now the girls may have a chance to participate in the tour of Janet Jackson herself. Yet all this time the team has not stopped working on the new record. As the girls wanted themselves this time they have recorded more up and mid-tempo songs and there is less room left for soulful R&B tunes on Welcome To The Dollhouse. Due to the faultless production from such renowned professionals as Danjahandz, Bryan-Michael Cox and Mario Winans most of the tracks are ready-made club compositions and destined to become new hits. Naturally everything that became the basis on the debut is all present on the second work as well including the perfect vocal harmonies, beautiful complicated tunes and contagious beats that will leave nobody indifferent.

Welcome To The Dollhouse: frank songs perfect for hot parties

The new record's peculiarity is the prevalence of franker songs perfect for hot parties. The album opens with the title track, a promising introduction Welcome To The Dollhouse featuring P. Diddy, and Missy Elliot joins the girls on a catchy bold song Bad Girl. When Danity Kane was choosing what song would become the album's lead single the fans were offered an online poll the candidates being an emotional composition Damaged and a danceable club song Pretty Boy; the former won but the latter is no less contagious and is definitely one of the record's best tracks. A sensual song Strip Tease and a short teasing Sucka For Love hint that the girls are not that innocent as some might think, but all those hints pale in front of the frankest composition Ecstasy performed with Rick Ross. This impression is a bit softened on nice slow ballads Poetry, Key To My Heart and Is Anybody Listening, but the provoking lyrics and sensual singing on the final number Ain't Going leaves no doubt that the girls have grown up and become bolder and sexier.

Danity Kane is not going to loosen its positions

From the very first days the whole America and half of the world as well have been watching the history of Danity Kane's creation. The relations within the collective cause admiration in many ways because P. Diddy's many year experience and his knowing of the show business laws never lets neither him nor his band make rude mistakes. Yet with all his efforts the evil tongues will not leave Danity Kane in peace. For instance shortly before the girls announced the soon release of their second album somebody gossiped that the band was about to disband for some of the members got interested in other music projects and some allegedly decided to pursue a solo career. As it has turned out however the fans have no reason to worry as at least in the nearest future these beautiful and talented girls will remain a band. Record Welcome To The Dollhouse has fully justified all the expectations concerning the sophomore effort, and although the competition with The Pussicat Dolls still continues it is clear that Danity Kane is surely not going to loosen its positions.
