4.0 out of 5 stars impressive debut April 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't think it's really DC's fault that I don't like this album as much as the other two. I bought their second album, and then their third, before I purchased this one. They have really matured on their later CD's, but this is very good as well. At first, I didn't really like it, but it grew on me quickly. Younger, the girls sound sweeter and less confident, which fits most of the songs on this disc. The tracks that stood out the most to me were as follows:
Second Nature, the opener, is a ballad that's sexy, but not nastily so. The harmony is smooth and very apealing.
With Me Part I is a funky, club-ready tune that could make a dog dance! Also good harmony.
Illusions is my favorite song on the album. The melody is very original, and DC proved they can keep up the perfect harmonizing even on short notes.
Sail On is an excellent remake! I think this song is where Beyonce sounds the most emotional, like she was really in this situation once.
Although most of the other songs aren't as good as the ones mentioned above (Beyonce sounds a bit strange on the ballad "Tell Me"), this is really a commendable debut from what would later become the most popular girl group of the generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Roots of Destiny's Child Aug. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
Now they're all off on solo ventures, but back in the day DC4 ruled the charts with hits like "No No No Part II." Their self-titled debut is probably one of their best CD's... tied with "The Writings on the Wall." It has many Gospel and R&B influences. If you liked "Jumpin Jumpin" from their 2nd album you will like it's cousin the Jermaine Dupri-produced "With Me" parts I and II (just the same with extended raps). There are a lot more shared vocals and young Beyonce sounds great. It sounds a lot more harmonic then the other albums, kind of like old school En Vogue. Wyclef Jean fans will enjoy the remix of "no No No" which was a hit on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts but not so much on the pop charts. If you like PURE R&B and NOT POP CROSSOVERS get their debut. It takes some time getting used to, but it will end up being one of your favorite discs and is surprisingly good music to put on the background when you have guests over. Whenever that happens I always get "this is destiny's child?!" That's right. This is their debut and I/M/O their best CD. Also reccomended: "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill"

5.0 out of 5 stars The Realist Destiny's Child July 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
So let's take a journey back into the back when Destiny's Child were still Sweet Sixteen when they recorded this album. They landed up a deal with Columbia/Sony Music and they recorded their first song "Killing Time" for the "Men In Black" movie in mid 1997. They then went on to release this in February 1998. Man, let me tell it was the R&B/Soul Album of 1998! This album is the perfection of a R&B/Soul CD from start to end, there was not one song to hate! It features Ballads, Mid-Tempo's and Dance/Clubbish tracks. It's also layed out quite nicely in my opiion.
The single "No No No Part 2" featuring Wyclef Jean, is a typical production of the ReFugee Camp. It's dancy, it makes you move, Wyclef does an excellent rap and the girls give off some good vocals. It also features a sample of Barry Whites "Strange Games and Things." The original "No No No Part 1" is all nice and slow and sets you into a Romance Trance of Dance! Absolutely Romantic for a date or just a song to relax yourself on and chill out! "With Me Part I" is a nice So So Def Production with the vocals of JD who keeps the song bumpin. It contains a sample of Master P's "Freak Hoes" Master P, himself, makes an appearance on "With Me Part II" where he gives off a good rap and Destiny's Child is write in the second verse and bridge before Master P's rap.
The ballads on this album range from slow jam ballads to sad ballads to uptempo ballads. The album's first track "Second Nature" has a good feel to start off something a nice slow jam ballad. It sounds like something the Isley Brother's would do as it has a sample of their song "Make Me Say It Again Girl" Really cool! Then there's "Tell Me" a sad ballad with a slight romantic edge. "Killing Time" is quite similar to "Tell Me" very sad and slow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for a debut... March 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
Now I know I am going to get a lot of flack for this, but in my opinion, this album is better, vocally may I stress, than their sophomore disc, The Writing's On the Wall, and most definitely better than Survivor. This is one of those debut albums that you would buy because of the single and then really start feeling it after a year or two.
The harmonies in the slower songs are actually above-par, as proved on the opening track "Second Nature". The vocals here don't sound rushed and overprocessed as on TWOtW, but they are more clear and vocally dynamic. "Tell Me" is a slow grooving song with decent lyrics. "Bridges" has a marvelous bridge (no pun intended) that you would want to replay over and over. "No No No Part 1" gives you complete sensuality with each thump of the beat. "With Me Part 2" sounds like it was done in one try, with its consistent and flowing harmonies. "Killing Time" is a beautiful ballad, another one to listen to repetitively. "Birthday" isn't one of the best songs lyrically, but vocally, with its minor chords and structure, stands out and makes you want to listen to it. "Sail On" is one of the best remakes I have heard in a while, and DC borrow the original formula from the Commodores to make it their own. And "My Time Has Come" is a nice way to end the album.
The midtempo and dance songs leave a little to be desired in some cases. "No No No Part 2" sounds like a sped up version of the original, even though you know it is going to be by the title. Even Wyclef Jean's rap doesn't do anything to make me get into the song vocally. "With Me Part 1" is okay, if you can get over Jermaine Dupri's irritating voice.

I don't see why this cd didn't sell that well. Believe it or not, this is DC's best cd (vocally at least). There harmonies are tight and the music was excellent. Read more

Very good debut. Back in 1997 there was a unknow girl group by the name of Destiny Child who had a lead singer that starved for success and perfection. Read more
