I thought that the Cheetah Girls' new album, TCG is a fun, bouncy pop release. But what stands out is the singing, especially the second half! There are a few numbers that recall '80s pop, though not too derivative or retro. The three JR Rotem produced songs solidify the huge impact he's made on urban music the past 12 months. I've heard about 20 different songs he's done for artists, and the Cheetah Girls' efforts step them up a notch from their early Disney songs. One reason I give the album only 3 stars is that they try a little too hard to sound like Destiny's Child on 2-3 dance numbers. They sound a little bit like DC's hits Survivor or Lose My Breath. And I'm in my 30s and love this effort. They will really expand their audience with this release.
