    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. There are simply too many stodgy slowies. [13 Nov 2004, p.57]
  4. The first word that comes to mind while listening to Destiny Fulfilled is: boring!
  5. The thing is, charisma and human warmth – or at least a plausible facsimile of them – are vital to the success of a ballad. And the bald fact is that Beyoncé and her handmaidens are utterly incapable of faking sentimentality.
  6. Destiny Fulfilled sounds distant and detached, and its pronounced ballad-fancy only occasionally raises a flag for the group dynamic it serves to restore.
  7. Destiny Fulfilled starts off pitifully and only gets worse.

    I think the songs should have been a little bit better. But, because of one bad album that doesn't change me from liking the group

    This is pure pornography pretending to be music which I'm surprised Beyonce had time to make with all her Pepsi and McDonald's This is pure pornography pretending to be music which I'm surprised Beyonce had time to make with all her Pepsi and McDonald's commitments. This will make you emotionally sterile. Expand
