Review ·

Danity Kane, an all-female R&B group with sexy interchangeable parts, is a result of Sean Combs's latest experiment in staying relevant, the Making the Band reality show. They're surprisingly capable singers, and the tracks on  their second album, Welcome to the Dollhouse, are pretty effective R&B/pop numbers with a strong roster of producers, such as Danja and the Dream. But ultimately the album is merely a reward for sitting through a season of reality-show high jinks. 

 

The whole concept may signal the birth of the new form of artist development, and in this era of plummeting record sales, Diddy has made a smart move in letting audiences look into the lives of his recording artists.  This does create a sense of artificiality around the whole enterprise, but Danity Kane has what it needs in serving up radio-ready R&B: good singers with a hot look and some of the best beats around.

 

Things stay mostly up-tempo for the duration of the album, with standout cuts such as “Bad Girl” featuring Missy Elliott and the fierce Britney Spears throwaway “Strip Tease” produced by Danja. A variety of sounds are experimented with, from the electro flavor of “Pretty Boy” to the '80s vibe of “Sucka for Love.” The operatic “Poetry” is rather emotional, yet still maintains the energy of the rest of the album.

I love this album! These girls are truly talented. There are so many established artists that are not this good. They all have something to bring to the table and the songs are lots of fun. I don't really skip through anything... except the interludes sometimes.
Overall great album with great tracks and they actually wrote on about 6 of the songs..which makes it all the more personal, something that fans like.

I love this album too! This is the only girl group out there right now and everyone has their favorite. (mines Dawn and Aubrey). Their harmonious sound match perfectly on the CD and acapulco. I hope others see their accomplishments.

They suck, they're arrogant and act like they are so coooool.... They refer to themselves in the 3rd person and make to big a deal of being friends with Diddy. Plus aubrey's make up is unreal and she is hitteous. I hate them.

David

DK sux!

HOT GARBAGE!!! YEA RITE..THIS ALBUM IS HOTTTT

THE HOT GARBAGE COME FROM YOUR BREATH!!!!

This album is HOT! I loved the first album but Dollhouse beats it hands down. Its more of a pop/r&b vibe which makes me love it even more. I downloaded the album the day it was released from iTunes and have been playing since. I seem to always go back to Welcome to the Dollhouse on my playlists esp when I need a lift me up or stressed out. And for those who say DK is arrogant obviously isn't a true fan that has watched them evolve into superstars from day one on MTB3. Their "arrogance" is purely confidence that they are truly talented and ppl need to recognize that! This album is a 10, the ladies are HOT, and haters stop hating or else you wouldn't be hating on this site! No Bitchassness allowed!

DK4eva!

I love DK. I've been a supporter since the beginning. However, I must say that I too am very disappointed with the album. It's not what I was expecting from them. The first album was more catchy for me. I'm not questioning their abilities. They are all VERY talented, great voices, dancers, etc. Hearing them sing on television, I was hoping to purchase an album that reflected those beautiful tones. I hope their next album (or solo ventures) will be more reflective of the talent they truly possess.

I didn't like DK after their first single... but second album they stepped it all the way up... I myself am a singer in a girl group and DK's album definately made us rethink our direction... good job ladies...shake the haterz off

brittany

DK are FIERCE!!! I LOVE both CDs! I remember seeing them LIVE at their guest appearance for their first CD release at Aubergine night club in San Diego in '06. OMG they were and will continue to be an amazing group of women!!! My favorite song on Dollhouse CD is "Strip Tease". HOT, HOT HOT!!!

Danity Kane is a VERY TALENTED group of young women. They can sing, dance, write, etc. I will admit I didn't really like Showstopper but almost every single song on their debut album I loved. Same for this album. It took some getting used to but I love every single song on the new one. I really think it depends on your style. I like many styles of music and I really love this group as well as others. They are also not arrogant. They state the facts. Every single interview they state the facts. They did go platinum. They are real, etc. So they are talented. Love the album. Make sure you buy it and help it go platinum because it truely is great! They sound great on it too! Their voices are more unified but they are definately on point and it definately shows their pipes. So everyone buy the new and old album if you haven't already! You wont be disappointed!!! :D

The Album is great, I like most of the songs. In the other hand Aubrey is very FAKE! and her makeup looks so ugly, too much makeup on her face. What happened to the happy humble Aubrey from the beggining of making the band? I think fame got to her head. LOL
