    Survivor delivered some smash hits like the title track and Bootylicious, but once again the rest of the album is just OK. The songs are more upbeat and catchy than those of their first two albums so it's probably their best. Full Review »

    Survivor, Independant Women Pt. 1 and Bootylicious are the undeniable chart stopping hits that make this album. Overall though, this is not the type of album you would want to listen to in it's entirety. I am a fan, but Destiny Fulfilled (2004) despite all the criticism, and The Writing's On The Wall are much more accomplished albums. If only they the producers figured out the bad tracks and made the album more fluid, it could have been one of the best albums ever. But still lots of fun. Full Review »
