Advantages: good album, great music
Disadvantages: some songs are not that great
The destinys child girls have recently struck back with another album following up The Writings On The Wall. This album is called Survivor and I am sure now with the three members this is the final number and members now. Beyonce Knowles, Kelle Rowland, and Michelle Williams all make up this very talented r'n'b trio. They are classy girls with one hell of a superb album it's definitely great, I will take you through track by track to tell you a bit about them.

1.INDEPENDENT WOMEN PART 1-This is the fabulous song the girls did for the film Charlie's Angels, a song which got destiny's child even more famous with the great video and catchy chorus. 'Throw your hands up at me' were what the girls shouted if women were independent. Beyonce wrote this song herself very talented and it's a great song for women. A number 1 hit.
2.SURVIVOR-This was the second song released from the album in 2001, apparently this song was meant for the girls that left the group with lines like "thought i couldnt sell without you sold 9 million" quite bitchy but I suspect it was probably true. This video was good set with the girls on an island and having to live there. This again was another number 1 hit.
3.BOOTYLICIOUS-This song is very catchy and I love it, makes you want to get shaking your hips and dance. This is definitely a disco song and the words are weird though, "I dont think your read for this jelly?" bizarre. This was released in 2001 and was in c
ompetition with Atomic Kitten and lost but still got into the top 3 (no2), still excellent.
4.NASTY GIRL-This is my favourite song on the album it's about a girl that is quite tarty and makes women seem like a low class and destinys child are the ones singing how she should give women dignity andpride. It's a different theme for a song but still great. This song has a sample, as does Bootylicious. It's a great song and some lyrics make you laugh such as "cleavage from here to Mexico". Hopefully a future single.
5.FANCY-I like the introduction to this song but then it turns different. I like this song it's quite good and not the best of the album but bearable to listen to while relaxing.
6.APPLE PIE A LA MODE-I find this song quite weird, it's ok but again not that brilliant, the singing isn't that good in it. It's to me not like destinys child thats why I don't really like it.
7.SEXY DADDY-This song is very irritating the introduction is very annoying. This is one of my worst tracks on the album. It is a very mixed song with a good beat just not very goo singing and music.
8.PERFECT MAN-I LVOE THIS! This is another favourite of mine, it was done for the soundtrack of the film Romeo Must Die and I heard it before and I have loved it since then. It's got an excellent beat, sound and also a nice theme. It's just excellent.
9.INDEPENDENT WOMEN PART 2-This is a terrible second version of independent women and it really shouldn't have been put on the album even if it was just to make it longer.
10.HAPPY FACE-This is a very cheery song and a great beat to dance to and it's a nice song. I like it because it isn't about love or anything just about everything looking bautiful and a happy world, nice to see a change of theme.
11.DANCE WITH ME-This has a nice slow beat to it, great for a slow dance. The singing is nice in this song to and everyt
hing blends in well together. I think this would be a good future single to it's another favourite of mine on the album.
12.MY HEART STILL BEATS-This is a ballad sung beautifully by Beyonce. It's a bit slow for me but still great and a nice melody.
13.EMOTION-This was the last single released from this album, this got to something like no3 in the charts. I personally think they could have released a better single because this is a slow song and nice just not single material. This has a nice beat to it and singing again is realy nice.
14.BROWN EYES-This is a lovely song, a ballad but not a terribly slow one. Beyonce does most singing in this song, her voice fits the music well. I love the chorus it's romantic this song and happy.
15.DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE-This is an ok song, ver r'n'b, great singing, not my favourite song of the album but my friend adores it. The chorus is the best bit really sometimes Beyonce warbles too much and she can be annoying this song is proof of that.
16.THE STORY OF BEAUTY-This is quite a nice upbeat song, I never really listen to it but it's ok. It has good singing in it and is quite good
17.GOSPEL MEDLEY-This is dedicated to Andreta Tillman, this song is ok but quite annoying as I am not into gospel music but it's nice to have it dedicated to someone.
18.OUTRO-This is an outro of words they want to say made in a song. It's clever to do it that way and it's catchy.
