On their platinum debut, 2005's PCD, the Pussycat Dolls became the guiltiest pleasures any man or woman, straight or gay, could want with hits like "Don't Cha" and "Buttons." After the aborted release of frontwoman Nicole Scherzinger's solo debut—hey, even Beyoncé waited three albums to leave Destiny's Child!—they are back with more music for your pole-dancing delight. The pelvis-gyrating highlight is "When I Grow Up," the hit first single, on which they humorously recall being little Pussycat Dolls and wanting to have "boobies" (sans silicone, we hope).

Clearly, the girlie group has grown since PCD: This is a stronger, more fully formed album with A-list producers like Timbaland (whose "Magic" is wicked) and a better range of material that shows just how flexible they can be—even when it's not about writhing on a chair.
