  1. 'Survivor' is brimful of staccato Timbaland skew-beats and a heroic disregard for the 'all-important' milkman whistleability factor. It is, quite frankly, nuts.
  2. Clever rhythms, tricky harmonies and diverse musical reference points -- including the opening riff from Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen" -- frequently distract from the lyrical shortcomings.
  3. Destiny's Child vamps, stamps, and oozes its way through a set of sparely arranged showcases for its layered vocal weave...
