Doll Domination (Interscope Records)
Pussycat Dolls

The Pussycat Dolls burst onto the music scene a few years ago like a porn-star version of a '50s girl band. They had both the looks and the sound to attract horny young clubbers looking for new poster material after Britney got preggers. Just about everyone is good for a hit; the question is whether PCD has any staying power.

Their follow-up disc, Doll Domination, mines much of the same territory as their first one, which isn't such a bad thing. The star of Domination is not any of the five Dolls, but the beats themselves, which thump and grind their way into your head. Without any distinguishing vocals, the five Dolls come across as ornaments on a tree, top-heavy accoutrements to go with bass-heavy songs.

That doesn't mean, however, that Domination isn't worth a listen. The two opening tracks, "When I Grow Up" and "Bottle Pop" have all the necessary requirements for hits, including a cameo in the second song by Snoop Dogg.

The Dolls slide between kick-ass femininity (the ambitious "Takin' Over the World") and seductive vulnerability ("Love the Way You Love Me"). You could argue that PCD is just musical cotton candy, and you'd probably be right. But at least it's sweet going down.
