Product Description

Product Description

Debut solo album by the Pussycat Dolls frontwoman, featuring the hit singles 'Poison' and 'Don't Hold Your Breath.

BBC Review

The twists and turns of Nicole Scherzinger's solo career are proof that, in pop, nothing is predictable. What should have been a seamless transition from her status as lead Pussycat Doll seemed to have foundered before it had even set sail, amidst the wreckage of public indifference and an entirely aborted album. Yet four years later, there she is, sitting pretty at the top of the charts – thanks mostly to, of all things, her role as guest judge on The X Factor reviving interest in her.

The truth is, though, that Scherzinger has always been a sorely underrated artist; her initial failure was due more to having jumped ship too early from a band whose aesthetic was divisively trashy in the first place than because of her own limitations. Technically, she's faultless – but she's also one of the most convincing singers in pop in terms of conveying a song's essence. Throughout her career, her performances have been characterised by an ability to be permanently and ferociously turned up to 11 at all times.

It's these qualities that save Killer Love, an album that – unsurprisingly, given its tortuous gestation – plays it relatively safe sonically, with the overdriven electro pound of RedOne's production dominating proceedings. Imaginative he is not, but it works: along with Lady Gaga, Scherzinger is one of the few pop performers with the requisite power to dominate his beats rather than vice versa. She revels in the challenge: you can virtually hear her rev herself up to match the relentless dancefloor force of the title-track and the magnificently shameless Club Banger Nation.

The Scherzinger persona, too, is finding its feet. She's less girl-next-door and more Jackie Collins anti-heroine: impressive rather than lovable, and with a cold glint in her voice that enables her to play the bad girl with relish on Poison. But she's also sympathetic enough to carry off a succession of dramatic ballads: Everybody and AmenJena find the wind machines turned up to the max and Scherzinger buffeted this way and that amidst the storms of her emotions.

Killer Love is far from the album you sense Scherzinger could still deliver: at times, her personality is all that – barely – carries substandard, unmemorable songs. A duet with Sting is a particularly grim nadir – for its producers, too, the otherwise unimpeachable Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Her finest moments remain the tense, taut crunk of Whatever U Like and the irresistibly kittenish Supervillain, two tracks recorded for her long-scrapped initial attempt at a solo album. But there's enough quality here to pass muster – and Scherzinger finally taking her belated place in the charts up is a thoroughly welcome development.

I bought this album, after loving the lead single "Poison" that was released late last year and hearing "Don't Hold Your Breath" in the charts a few weeks before, not really sure what to expect. Having never been a huge Pussycat Dolls fan I took a risk buying Killer Love - mainly because I loved Nicole on The X Factor and really hoped her music would be as nice as she appeared to be! After thoroughly listening through the album numerous times now I absolutely love it!

The album is made up of touching ballads and powerful pop songs almost at a 50/50 balance - my only criticism is that they're not very well interspersed and it seems to be that the first part of the album is very pop-orientated and then the second is mostly ballads. Despite what people are saying my favourite track has to be "Power's Out" featuring Sting! Their voices blend really well together and the song raises the hairs on my neck! There are a couple of tracks that I'm not a massive fan of but I don't believe they detract much from the album and it still deserves 5 stars.

My highlights of the album are : "Power's Out" the duet with Sting, "AmenJena" a touching ballad which showcases Scherzinger's vocal ability, "You Will Be Loved" a pop/ballad track that carries a great message, "Don't Hold Your Breath" a great track that's so easy to listen to, and "Desperate" which just sounds great!

All in all - definitely worth a buy!

Great album. Exceeded my expectations. Nicole covers quite a range of genres, rock, pop, and very island-ish type sounds. Loving this CD and was extremely pleased that it includes Enrique Iglesias's hit - Heartbeat. :)

I wanted this cd and was waiting for its release date, although after reading some of the reviews here I must confess I was ummming and ahhhing about whether to. However, I love Nicole's voice and have the Pussy Cat Doll albums and I was lucky to have this bought me for my Mother's Day present (although to be fair I did pick it myself)...and I say lucky because I absolutely love it and in my humble opinion every track stands out on its own.

The first time I listened to it I was obviously familiar with Poison, Don't Hold Your Breath & Heartbeat, but the other tracks I had not heard before (apart from the snippets on Amazon of each track which don't really give you a true insight into the track) and to be fair I was not sure what to think, I knew there were some great upbeat tracks which had some great hooks and a few slower tracks but to be honest after the first play there was not a track from the songs I hadn't heard that made me think 'wow'. However, something made me think this is definitely a grower (and in my experience the growers are the cd's that you listen to most of the time from there on in) and I am absolutely happy to say that after the second play and familiarity had stepped in and then the third play, that was it I was hooked. I have had it in my car constantly since Mother's Day and my two young children love it too! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and if we all had the same taste in music it would be a boring old world but in my, as I said, humble opinion this is a FANTASTIC album and I for one can't wait to hear Ms Scherzinger next album!! It has definitely gotten under my skin and I find myself, at the most bizarre times, singing or humming away to one of tracks from the album which is in my head at that time! Thanks Nicole for a great soundtrack to my Mothers Day!!!

In my opinion this is a 4 1/2 star rating, but seeing as Amazon doesn't give me this option, then it is a well deserved 5 star rating.

At first when I heard the album, I thought (as per usual) the first half of the album is good, and veared off towards the end, getting a bit boring etc. However with a few more (or a lot more) listens, I find the album very good, and each song does sound individual and not all the same throughout. *Thumbs up*

The highlights of the album are definitely the singles released, Poison, Heartbeat (with Enrique Iglesias) and Don't Hold My Breath (UK #1). Oustanding songs include the titled track Killer Love, Wet, Casualty and Say Yes. However each song is good and deserve to be on the album. This album is definitely a grower.

It's hard to predict which one should be her next single, but I believe Nicole should release Killer Love, if it was to be another banging tune. If it is a ballad wise possibly, AmenJena, as it really suits her voice. But whether the next singles will chart as high as her previous is another question, as most people buy the album and not the singles after the release of the album. Nevertheless these songs deserve a high, if not a chart topping position.

1.Poison - 8/10 This has never been my favourite track.
2. Killer Love - 10/10 Club tune all the way, could dance to this all night.
3. Don't Hold Your Breath - 10/10 This track has possibly been played over 100 times on my iTunes.
4. Right There - 9/10 Raggae feel, sounds like something Rihanna could do.
5. You Will Be Loved - 7/10 This is a grower.
6. Wet - 10/10 Great tune.
7. Say Yes - 9/10 Maybe because the track is next to Wet, I thought they sounded similar, but both as good as eachother.
