Doll Domination (Interscope/Universal)
You can’t help but think that had lead Doll Nicole Scherzinger’s recent solo attempt not totally tanked, we wouldn’t be subjected to another record from the former burlesque troupe. 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.
Domination is a collection of ultra-vapid R&B-laced pop that shows just how little personality the Dolls really have. Between songs about being celebrities – something we can all relate to – and the requisite vague narratives about broken hearts and hitting clubs, the album bores and annoys with performances rife with desperate over-singing. It might be funny if it weren’t so depressingly shitty.
