Product Description

Amazon.ca

Not even Dionne Warwick and her mind-reading friends could have predicted that, over the course of two CDs, Destiny's Child would become one of the most successful girl groups on the planet. But successful this Houston trio is, and their sophomore CD shows why. Yes, the lineup changes as often as lead singer Beyoncé's hairstyle, but fun, disposable pop/R&B needn't be rooted in permanence, and DC is mad fun and mad catchy to boot. With the assistance of hitmakers Shek'spere and Kandi Burruss, Destiny's Child trade in effervescent, hip-shaking, finger-wagging, 'you-go-girl, kick-him-to-the-curb' anthems. The Writing's on the Wall is loaded with tracks like "Bills, Bills, Bills," which are suitable both for dancing and as topics on the Ricki Lake Show. The percolating "Bug A Boo" is irresistible, as is the sassy "So Good." To their credit, the girls can slow the pace down, and on the sultry "Temptation" they get to work their considerable chops to nice effect. But as sales and chart figures have shown, Destiny's Child are at their best when they are laying down the law to some trifling man, and/or working their own groove thang. Work it they do on this somewhat formulaic but ultimately irresistible effort. --Amy Linden

Sure,I know,Destiny's Child is annoying and can get on your nerves a lot of times...but this is truly the best album by a girl group since TLC's landmark album "Crazysexycool".DC may have some incessant formula on all their albums,but it obviously works on "Writing's On The Wall".So what if it's got nothing to do with REAL talent,you get so caught up in the catchy-as-crap songs that you forget there is any other girl group out there!Of course,this album's main pro is:catchiness,like I said about 500 times already.These songs are great to dance to,great to sing along with,and are instant pop classics,especially the great ghetto girl anthems,including the dominatrix's anthem "Say My Name(great pop song)",the catchiest song on the album "Bills,Bills,Bills",and the lovable "So Good(I seriously don't know anyone who doesn't love this song)".And the ballads are great contenders for slow jam classics,including the "Let's Wait Awhile" of today,"Sweet Sixteen" and the beautiful A Capella renewed version of "Amazing Grace".And yea,Beyonce hogs almost all the vocals on this album,but at least it's a beautiful voice taking all the spotlight,right?And,apparently,DC picked the right collaborations for this album,especially with Missy Elliot in "Confessions",where Beyonce admits to bunking up with another man,all while singing beautifully,and Shek'spere obviously knows his stuff,since the biggest highlights are produced by him,including the beautifully produced "She Can't Love You".
But,some of the songs do get obnoxious after a while("Bog A Boo" bugs the living crap out of me,"Where'd You Go"),but most of them have lots of longevitity.
The Verdict:A great landmark for R&B girl groups that was needed a long time ago.
Recommended:Yes,almost definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyonce's first Classic April 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Hands down this CD is one of the top 5 greatest R&B CDs of all time (1. AALIYAH-ONE IN A MILLION. 2. TLC- CRAZY SEXY COOL 3. MARY J- WHAT'S THE 411 4. JANET- CONTROL & JANET 5. DC- THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL). TWOTW shows a somewhat grown DC being able to handle a few grown up issues like cheating, deciding if you are ready for sex or not, and trying to find someone to pay your bills. Wether you agree with the subject matter or not, the harmony between Beyonce, Kelly, Latoya and Latavia are unparalled. If these 4 would have stayed together longer, there is no telling what could have happened. Ultimately pride got in the way, and Beyonce really did grow out of the confines of a group. she is much too strong not to be solo. But the ultimate downfall of DC was that no one was willing to tell Bee to get out earlier. Latoya and Latavia still got the shaft.Michelle (a replacement for one of the two) was put in a bad position. DC3 is nothing compared to the original DC. But this CD stands as a mark that classics can be made from a group with one person stealing the shine at all times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sophomore effort Dec 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite R&B albums of all times. Now, I'm not sure exactly HOW much of the writing was actually done by the ladies of DC but how fortunate for them to have been teamed up with the likes of Shekespere, Kandi & Missy - the result is straight "fiyah". Given my personal feeling that their next album "Suvivor" is a drastic drop off in quality both in terms of lyrical content AND the fact that Bee sang lead on every single song, I would suggest that they hire a couple more writers for the next project.
I think that more of the songs could've been released as successful singles but due to the mega success of "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Say My Name" and "Jumpin Jumpin"; hidden gems like "Temptation", "Hey Ladies", & "Confessions" weren't released.
I was truly stunned by how great this disc is - the only song I skip over is "Sweet 16". The most unfortunate part about their situation is that LeToya & LeTavia did not get to appear on the grammies as they rightfully should have given the work they too put into this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MONEY IS RIGHT IN YOUR FRONT DOOR! Oct. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hated and Loved at the same time by the media, Destiny's Child rise to the top was full of scandals, and teary judgements, the three girls that went and go from Destiny's during this amazing period, were just spoiled, how can they leave the most succesful group of the late 90's, The Writing's On the Wall like it or not, was the most well crafted hip-POP album made. Pretty close to be just pop, not that it's a bad thing, but Writing's aimed to a TRL audience more than any BET show. All the singles are well known by everybody who listen to top 40 radio, "Bills, Bills, Bills(stated for a playa that didn't pay), Bug A Boo(song dedicated to stackers), Say My Name(cheating guys), Jumpin Jumpin(Party Joint)" are pure hits that mented to be in that way not any other, the rest of the album tracks were truly gems and surely should have become another top 10 or #1 for them, but still they didn't release another single after Jumpin', the best unreleased songs are "Hey Ladies, So Good, Temptation, Now That She's Gone, She Can't Love You" could have been hits. All the tracks are well produced, impacable lyrics, and magical pop beats that will keep you bumpin' til' you drop, this album is simply amazing!, no wonder The Writing's was on the wall, and stated success for this ladies. Destiny's Became the Supremes of the new millenium.
