  1. 80
    While it's no surprise that Destiny Fulfilled showcases advanced production values, the songwriting and vocal abilities are just as impressive. [Jan 2005, p.81]
  2. The singers balance resilience with vulnerability, worldly desires with divine aspirations, but the material is simply overblown, puffed up with soap-bubble ideas and endless repetition. [14 Nov 2004]
  3. 60
    It's fun enough, until the interminable breakup theme that drags down the second half. [Dec 2004, p.136]
  4. A surprisingly perfunctory disc that never quite justifies its existence. [22 Nov 2004]
  5. The album winds up sounding too reserved and heavy-handed, which makes it a disappointment not only compared to what the group has done before, but also to what the girls have achieved outside the group.
  6. It's disappointing to find a glut of songs seemingly calibrated to appease the demographics. [Jan 2005, p.126]
  7. Destiny Fulfilled starts off pitifully and only gets worse.

    Another good album from the girls of Destiny's Child, but like their other albums they never really master a solid album full of hits. The singles are the stand-outs as well as one or two other tracks but there are one too many slower songs on this album. Expand

    Not only the title of the album was a signal that the group was coming to an end, but you could also tell from the lack of effort and power displayed in all these songs. Expand
