5.0 out of 5 stars MODERN MASTERPIECE. 15 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
Fact. Any r'n'b fan should own this album. Why? Because, quite simply, it is the best r'n'b album of the last ten years, and there are four simple reasons for it: Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. So the line-up stood at the time.
The Writing's On The Wall is from the days when Destiny's Child were all-out r'n'b, no dabbling in pop tracks whatsoever, and when the girls were a quartet, minus Michelle Williams.
This is the album which got Destiny's Child the recognition they deserve, and that started them on the path to superstardom.
THE TRACKS:
1) Intro: 5/10: well, it's an intro, not really a song, so how can you rate it highly?!?
2) So Good: 8/10: a light song but with attitude.
3) Bills, Bills, Bills: 10/10: first single from the album, made number one in the USA and top 10 in the UK. fantastic, and original.
4) Confessions (feat. Missy Elliott): 9/10: a stylish song with dark beats, the girls come clean about their secrets...
5) Bugaboo: 10/10: didn't get the recognition it deserved as a single. one of the stand-out tracks on the album. great 'spiky' beats, too.
6) Temptation: 9/10: ultra-slick and super-sexy, slow r'n'b songs are rarely done better.
7) Now That She's Gone: 7/10: A decent enough song, doesn't stand up well to the rest though.
8) Where'd You Go: 8/10: Fabulous, the most pop-orientated song on the album.
9) Hey Ladies: 5/10: The worst song on the album, but not a disaster. Sounds too cluttered and too in your face.
10) If You Leave (feat. Next): 10/10: Classy duet, with Next being more than a match for DC.
11) Jumpin Jumpin: 8/10: based on the quality of the album, this wasn't the best song to choose to be released, but a good r'n'b club anthem.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best album i have ever heard!!!!!! 5 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mini-Disc
When I first put this Cd on I thought that I had put on the wrong CD! The first track is a bit misleading but if you listen to the words then you get what it is on about! But as the CD progresses it gets beter and better . This CD really shows off the girls singing abbility. The CD also has an interesting and intreging twist to it, by naming each song with a 'commandment of relationships' this is something to listen for. All in all I think that this is one of the best albums to come out in a long time and I would easily give it five stars!

WOW! WHAT AN ALBUM. THESE GIRLS HAVE GOT TO BE ONE OF THE BEST R'N B GROUPS OUT THERE. PREVIOUSLY TO ME PURCHASING THIS ALBUM I HAD ONLY HEARD A COUPLE OF SONGS, BUT WAS PLEASENTLY SURPRISED TO FIND OUT THAT THE WHOLE ALBUM WAS FULL OF QUALITY. TRACKS LIKE 'SAY MY NAME' ARE BRILLIANT AND MY PERSONNAL FAVOURITE THE BONUS TRACK, 'GET ON THE BUS'. TAKE CARE YOU TEXAN BEAUTIES, KEEP IT REAL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thou Shall Love This. 25 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
Every Song from Beginning to end is great to amazing this is smooth chilled out R'N'B that feels as fresh in 2011 as it did in 1999 the overall production and feel of this album is so different to anything out there now and really of the time it was released and this is the album that really showcases Beyonce because thus far she has yet to make and album of the standard of The Writing's On The Wall both musically and lyrically it begs the question where the hell did she go wrong.
