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

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of significant change July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before I begin, I gotta say I liked the original DC before they became DC-3. This album put DC on the map as one of the most successful girl groups in history. The Intro sets things off perfectly, which tells you that each song on the cd gives you something informative to go by (with each commandment at the end of each song). So Good has to be my favorite song. It's short, sweet, and to the point. A song for the haters. Bills, Bills, Bills is my second favorite song on the album. The remix is hot too [Maurice Remix] Now That She's Gone is my favorite ballad (I think that this song is the longest song recorded by DC, just to let you know) She Can't Love You is my second favorite ballad. The harmony on that song reminds me of their debut album. This is a must have if you're a true DC fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't get enough of it! June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Classic debut album by the all-girl group Destiny's Child. This 1999 masterpiece featured then members LeToya and LaTavia, who ended up being slackers, showing up in the studio only when they felt like it. As a result, Beyonce KICKED THEM OUT of the group because they weren't pulling their own weight. Anyway, this record is perfect. Anyone who gives this one star is a racist, plain and simple. Go, Beyonce!

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S BEEN FIVE YEARS.... June 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Since this album has come out, and I still listen to it! The music is timeless, and has some of the hottest R&B tracks that you ever would expect to hear from a girl group. Destiny's Child needs to return to their roots, because their "Survivor" stuff is just terrible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grade A CD! May 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
I can say without reservation that "The Writing's On The Wall" is THE best of the three DC albums thus far (I would dare say even better than the solo releases as well). This, of course was before, Michelle Williams as this was Beyonce, Kelly, LaToya and LaTavia that did this one.
My favorite songs off of this are "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Confessions", "Temptations" and "Jumpin' Jumpin'." I think the comparisons to TLC are somewhat valid too. While I think TLC was better, no other girl group has had the impact in R&B/Hip-Hop that DC has had since TLC. Only En Vogue and, before those three groups, Salt N Pepa could make that claim as far as impact and influence.

Format:Audio CD
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 A Truly Original CD April 25 2004
By KD
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Destiny's Child CD I ever bought, and it is probably the most played disc in my CD collection. Whether it's sassy anthems for women, sultry ballads, or anything in between DC can do it, and they can do it well. Although the intro, with the girls attempting to speak in Italian accents, may cause some raised eyebrows, keep listening-no song on this sixteen-track disc is remotely bad! Standouts are the [appealing] "Temptation", the thumping "Bug A Boo", their mega-hit everyone has heard, "Say My Name", and the reflective "Sweet Sixteen". the album ends on a perfect note with an a cappella rendition of "Amazing Grace", with almost Freakily good harmonies. in this outstanding CD, every girl has a chance to shine vocally, not just Beyonce. It's really worth the money.
