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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

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 morePublished on July 12 2004 by Somebodyukno2
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 morePublished on July 1 2004 by SlimD

I've often compared Destiny's Child with TLC in the sense that their debuts were hot and their second CD's were even better! Read morePublished on May 31 2004 by Ervin Griffin
Well, this album was farrrrr from good. The vocals are exceptional, and all the songs aren't bad, but most of them are. Read morePublished on Nov. 28 2003 by DLMIDC
Destiny's Child debut album is really far from being nearly close to the magic & cleverness of the other Destiny's albums. Read morePublished on Nov. 17 2003 by S. Quinto
