Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Not even two lineup changes in less than two years could derail the chart-busting, little-engine-that-could known as Destiny's Child. Building on their groundbreaking hip-pop classics such as "Say My Name," "Bills, Bills, Bills," and "Bug a Boo," the Houston-based trio -- which now consists of breakout star Beyoncé Knowles, her childhood friend Kelly Rowland, and former backup singer Michelle Williams --have kicked their game up another infectious notch with more intricate harmonies, dazzling phrasing, and unpredictable beats on their aptly titled third disc, Survivor. The title track, with its empowering call-and-response chorus "I'm a survivor/I'm not gon' give ...

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Not even two lineup changes in less than two years could derail the chart-busting, little-engine-that-could known as Destiny's Child. Building on their groundbreaking hip-pop classics such as "Say My Name," "Bills, Bills, Bills," and "Bug a Boo," the Houston-based trio -- which now consists of breakout star Beyoncé Knowles, her childhood friend Kelly Rowland, and former backup singer Michelle Williams --have kicked their game up another infectious notch with more intricate harmonies, dazzling phrasing, and unpredictable beats on their aptly titled third disc, Survivor. The title track, with its empowering call-and-response chorus "I'm a survivor/I'm not gon' give up/I'm not gon' stop/I'm gon' work harder", is already a hit, as is the girl-power anthem "Independent Women Pt. I"-- which originally appeared on the Charlie's Angels soundtrack. The real gems here, however, are a triumvirate of up-tempo tracks: the cartoonish remix "Independent Women, Pt. II," which borrows its lyrical phrasing from the opera Carmen; the rock-guitar-accented "Bootylicious," which Beyoncé, who wrote and co-produced the entire disc, penned in tribute to her jinglin' curves "I don't think you're ready for this jelly.../Cause my body's too bootylicious for you baby"; and the forgivably preachy, steel-drum-flavored "Nasty Girl" "These men don't want no hot female/Whose been around the block female/You nasty girl". The disc's slow jams are equally compelling, particularly DC's gorgeous, unplugged remake of the Bee Gees' "Emotion"; the soon-to-be wedding favorite "Brown Eyes"; and the stirring, a cappella "Gospel Medley." Throughout Survivor, Destiny's Child mesmerize listeners with their vocal firepower and alternately amuse and inspire with their neo-feminist lyrics. Ending the disc on a hopeful note, the bass-heavy, syncopated "Outro DC-3 Thank You," they proclaim: "It's forever DC-3." If they continue to challenge themselves and their growing fan club, that may be what fate has in store.

    When I Heard Survivor in the radio i became a big fan this album is just the best RN,B album ever i love all the songs here but my special favorits are. SURVIVOR written&produced by Cory Rooney and Beyoncé Knowles the lead singer in this awesome girlband. Bootylicious co-written by legend Stevie Nicks this is one of my fave RN,B songs ever. Emotions written by The Bee Gees a slowtempo ballad i love this song. The 2 Parts of Independent Women from Charlies Angels produced-Co Written by Cory Rooney both songs are amazing. Brown Eyes a wonderful ballad and tearjerking song from the master of Powerballads Walter Afanasieff(Celine Dion,Mariah Carey)This song is one of my favorit song on the album. My Heart Still Beats a solo song with Beyoncé Knowles a Mariah Carey kind of ballad co-written&Produced by Walter Afanasieff. Happy Face a wonderful RN,B song. Dangerously In Love this song is awesome i love it. All In All a awesome 18 track album. You Won´t be dissapointed with this album it´s heavy on RN,B and with great ballads.

    helping me to become a independent lady

    Well, I think that this cd is there their best yet. and there is better to come. I say this because their vocals and messages behind their songs are outstanding. I think they finally have the final DC3 (destiny¿s Childs) according to their last song on their CD. I also think hat this is their best CD because they way they get their fair share to all sing. I am not hating on the main singer I just think that they all need their own shine time. My favorite song on this CD is independent woman part 2. I say this because the tempo is prefect and sounds better to me than the first one. All in all I can not wait for the next CD to arrive!

    It's All About Kelly!!!!!

    The reason why I'm giving 5 stars is because of Kelly.Just face it the girl can sing and she's not fake.Beyonc'e on the other had she does too many roles,she cracks,and she's over doing it.Kelly gots soul(Church Soul!)she sings with power and her vocals are stronger than Beyonce's.Kelly tore it up on Avant's seperate.She tore it up on Angel off of Down To Earth soundtrack.And she tore it up on T.D.Jakes's Satin Sheets album.Sorry to say Beyonc'e fans but Kelly's got a going on.

    DC latest is worth the BUY!!!

    Destiny's Child latest CD 'Survivor' is worth buying it. Every song on the album is well-written, well-produced and best of all well-sang. It is an astonishing album, one of the year's best by one of the best trios to have come in long while. Beyonce Knowles, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland have proved to be one of the most acclaimed and highly praised R&B artists out there today and I hope they continue the much success they are at today for the years to come.

    Destiny's Child ''Survivor'' - Album of the year!!!!!

    This is the most awesome CD that I have heard in a long time. It's very rare that all of the songs on a CD are great. But Destiny's Child is obviously an exception to the rule. The songs on the CD go from R&B to Pop to Gospel - very versatile. I Loved It!!

    Are you a SURVIVOR?

    Destiny's Child has really done it this time! Their new CD and hit song ''Survivor'' is topping the charts! This CD proves that girls can do anything if they put their minds to it. Plus, how can you go wrong with awesome tunes like that?

    A guy who likes all types of music!!!

    Wow!!! This is one of the best pop CDs ever, and pop isn't really what I like to listen to that much. I liked the ''Sexy Daddy'' song, b/c it has that dance beat to it. ''Bootylicious'' is an awesome song, too!!! I wish they didn't make an ''Independent Women Part 2'' b/c that song I really didn't like that much, but that's O.K...Overall, this is the best Destiny's Child CD ever!!! You guys kick @$$!!!
