Doll Domination? I So think not!
Doll Domination - The Pussycat Dolls (2008-2009... and probably for many years to come)
Okay so this album is what got me off my ass to start blogging and doing reviews for Music...no that is not a compliment.
So the album isn't that bad, but the general public would never know that with the amount of times it's been re-released in the past year. When it was first released, there was the original version and the deluxe version which featured a bonus disc with solo songs by each of the dolls for the fans who were sick of Nicole (all of us) singing everything, with her back-up dancers. both of these editions had international variant bonus tracks that altered depending on the country.
Thats where all went down hill, since then they have re-released the album about 4 other times. First they re-released the album with new singles, most notably, their cover of the Oscar winning Jai Ho! from the many award winning, Slumdog Millionaire (good movie :p). then they proceeded with an EP called the "Mini Collection" which was all the new tracks, presumably for all the people who bought the initial releases, or were only interested in the singles, which is what the EP consisted of. Then Doll Domination 2.0 (Pictured above)) was released, which was a hack job cut + paste of the album, trying to cut out some of the dead weight filler and have a better album overall. this hasn't seemed to work as 2.0 was only really released in Australia, and got scrapped everywhere else. Finally and most recently they released 3.0 which is a combination of the original release and ALL the bonus tracks from the different editions (count 6 now).
combined this album has sold under half a million, but I'm not surprised, people are skeptical to buy things because they get rereleased in like 4 months anyways... and i wonder why they think that...
I was gonna continue onto the music, but this is too long a post, so I will post the second bit in a separate post. haha
