The Writing's on the Wall

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Elliott Wilson
One listen to the sophomore album from Destiny's Child, THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL, and it becomes crystal-clear that these four ladies from Houston are big TLC fans. This full-length might as well have been called "Scrubs: The Album," as Le Toya, Beyoncé, Kelly, and La Tavia let loose on the downside of relationships and no-good men. Those enamored with the group's hit single, "Bills, Bills, Bills," will no doubt gravitate to "Bug a Boo" and "Hey Ladies," which also take the opposite sex to task. It isn't until the disc's end that Destiny's Child finally let their guard down, on the impassioned ballad "Stay." Musically richer than their 1998 self-titled debut ...

Musically richer than their 1998 self-titled debut featuring the Wyclef Jean-produced hit "No, No, No, Part II", THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL lets everyone know that Destiny's Child are growing up -- and they're crazy, sexy, and cool.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
With their second album, Writing's on the Wall, Destiny's Child still suffers from slightly uneven songwriting, but it's nevertheless an assured step forward for the girl group. Not only are they maturing as vocalists, they are fortunate to work with such skilled, talented producers as Kevin "Shekspere" Biggs, Rodney Jerkins, Dwayne Wiggins, Chad Elliot, Daryl Simmons, and Missy Elliott, who all give the quartet rich, varied music upon which to work their charm. So, even when the album fails to deliver memorable songs, it always sounds alluring, thanks to the perfect combination of vocalists and producers.

    Four females who can sing

    Destiny's Child is my favorite female group. The Writings on the Wall is the best CD I have listened to in awhile. The CD doesn't have any songs that I dislike. I really enjoy listening to Temptation, So Good, and Sweet Sixteen because the music is mellow sounding. Hey Ladies and Jumpin Jumpin I enjoy listening to when I¿m in the car or in the mood to dance. The variety of songs makes the CD interesting and not boring. I like how they came up with their own Amazing Grace. Their voices make the song sound really different and enjoyable. When I first received the CD as a gift I couldn¿t stop listening to it. I still like the CD even though I played it very much.

    The Divas for the Century

    The members of Destiny's Child are not only beatuiful but they have tons of talent. I love their songs, the way they dress, and their hair styles. I also want to give big props to Mrs. Knowls for the hard work of keeping the girls looking their best. I need to get hooked up with Destiny's Child or signed up with them because I think I would add some extra spark to the group even though they got it down packed. I just want to give them and their crew props for the wonderful job they've done. Much love Jasmine.

    wonderful music - perfect performance

    It's amazing especially when you see the videoclips connecting to this CD like those from ''say my name'', ''jumpin' jumpin''' and although little older video: ''bug a boo''. PERFECT! Keep on going, please, even when now the group has only three members left.

    Destiny's Child Is A Total Hit!!!

    The CD Writings On The Wall Is a Definite Hit! Destiny's child have great voices and the songs are great. It's a perfect match! All of the songs are ideal for anyone between the ages of 10 and 25. I gave it 5 stars because all of the songs should be #1 hits at sometime or another. It's one cd that I never get tired of listening to!

    Some kind of stars

    Destiny's child is a great wonderful group. They can sing any note, do any dance, or sing any song. This group has rythmn, melody, beat, and of course fans. They are being played so many times on the radio, you would think that they owned it. Destiny's Child is just all together GREAT!
