5.0 out of 5 stars The best new thing in music August 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The Writing's on the Wall has thrown Destiny's Child into stardom. Their last CD only sold 800,000 copies but this one has sold more than 5 times that amount and I'm about to tell you why the songs are responsible.
Track #2 (So Good)- Okay song. Not one of my favorites on the album.
Track #3 (Bills,Bills,Bills)- Their first single from this album. Great song. About how the men their with spend all their money and use them to look good, but give nothing in return. Close favorite. In fact, my #2.
Track #4(Confessions)- Possibly the only song where the four ladies did something wrong. About how they cheated on their mates and they're confessing. Good song, but seems like it goes on for a long time.
Track #5 (Bug A Boo)- Great song. About how the men won't leave them alone. Very fresh sound. It's an R&B crossover to pop kinda song. My #3 favorite.
Track #8 (Where'd You Go)- This is a pretty good song. Kinda catchy but don't play it too much. You can get tired of it easily.
Track #9 (Hey Ladies)- Really great song. Love the beat and the vocals. "Hey Ladies" is an upbeat song that can be danced to. Only bad thing is that the chrous seems like it goes on forever.
Track #10 (If You Leave)- One of the best songs on the CD. Features Next and shows off great vocals. Perhaps one of the best duets among groups I've heard in a while. This will most likely be a favorite among many. They should make it a single.
Track #11 (Jumpin)- Great dance song. Has that dance floor techno beat flavor.Currently Jumpin' the charts. This, I have to say is tied for my favorite song with the next track.
Track #12 (Say My Name)- Was a big hit heard on radios and TVs every where.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Writing's on the Wall December 14, 2005
By Amber
Format:Audio CD
Intro: I actually like how they created that. It blended in really well with the mood and contrast of the cd. It told what the whole basis of the cd was about.

So Good: It one of those feel good songs. Think (for those who have Survivor) "Happy Face" in a spiteful, in-your-face type of groove.

Bills, Bills, Bills: Everyone has heard this song at least ONCE. Overall, great beat, lyrics carry out really well, catchy beat.

Confessions: One of the risque songs on the cd. Basically, the girl in the song get her boyfriend back by telling him that if he can play games, she can play games.

Bug-A-Boo: One of the more Pop-oriented, but at the same time has an R&B feel to it. In simple terms, this young lady who's new boyfriend is constantly keeping contact 24-7 (stalking or smothering-whatever you prefer to call it)

Temptation: One of the greatest beats on the song. The beat can mesmorize you before the first verse hits. Nice, jazzy, slow, but sassy. The song is about the temptation a girl has to cheat on her boyfriend.

Now That She's Gone: This song's beat sounds a lot like another song, but I can't really pin-point it exactly. One of my favorites (but I am a slow-song person, so don't totally go on my word if you're into hyper sounds on this one) The beat is nice. Very R&B. This song is about how a man wants to go back and forth between one girl and another girl.

Where'd You Go: The girls' vocals are matched wonderfully. This song is about a girl asking where her boyfriend has been.

Hey Ladies: I'm not even going to beat around the bush on this one. It is just male bashing with a very good beat. That's all.

If You Leave: The beat had to grow on me. As soon as it did, I appreciated it.

By I.B.
Format:Audio CD
This album from destiny's child is just blazing and if you don't want to take my word for it just go out and get it. I never heard the whole of their last cd but I know that this is one of their best. Lyrics and beats especially is just tight. I don't buy to many R+B cds but this one was too Hot not to listen to. The 2 lead singers did producing and writing and you can see it on this cd. The beats..........They will leave you in smoke. I seriously didn't expect this to be that tight. They were really creative on this one with making up the commandments for love like, "Thou shalt not follow temptation", and "Thou shalt not bug" at the beginning of each song. It was phat how they made up there voices in the beginning to sound like "the God father" and calling their fans the Don. My favorite tracks are: Jumpin Jumpin, Confessing, Bills bills bills, and the remix of it, Bugaboo, where did you go, say my name, stay and so good. Thats about the whole cd but that's how good it is. Rodney Jerkins did a good job on the "say my name" track and he finally made a new sound thats different from all the other stuff he did like "The boy is mine"(brandy and monica) and "If you had my love"(Jennifer lopez. Next came in strong on this one too. Everything is tight and you can see they didn't rush it like some artists are doing. If you are looking for a group with tight beats, and vocals then this is for you no doubt. I see sucess in in this groups destiny because they just get tighter and tighter everytime. I can't believe they are only 18....but they r making moves. Get it!
