I am afraid i just had to use a song from their second album to describe this, their third! Although it probably seems impossible to them and their public, Destiny's Child have managed to follow up huge hit "The Writing's On The Wall" with an 'almost as good' record which will fly off the shelves. It holds all that it needs to: upbeat girly anthems, heart wrenching ballad s(always at the end!) and the all too familiar gospel medely, which is part of any DC record. However, it lacks the all round brilliance of "The Writing's. . .", and i just can't put my finger on it. Maybe it is because simply every track on that was perfect, a lovely slice of smooth r'n'b, and because "Survivor" has it's let downs. Parts of it just don't fit! However, it is a brilliant album to listen to, with great ballads and absoulutely loads of songs, buy it, after all i did give it 5 stars!
