Destiny's Child (1998)
The Writing's On The Wall (1999)
Survivor (2001)
Destiny's Fulfilled (2004)

I think their debut album is a really poor album and I have tried re listening to it several times recently but other than a select few tracks including No No No I think its dire and its no wonder it is no longer in print.

I think TWOTW is one of the best if not the best RnB album of all time, I love almost every song on it and my only nitpick is that So Good wasn't a single its such a good song I prefer it to Jumpin' Jumpin' & Bugaboo.

Survivor is also classic but for me has a fair bit of filler on it and I thought the move to a poppier sound was a bit drastic after the very RnB TWOTW.

Destiny's Fulfilled is good but also has a fair bit of filler and I ddn't think Soldier and Girl were very good singles choices at all especially Solider.

Between TWOTW and DF for me. But I think destiny fulfilled pips it because it's doesn't try to be anything but a solid R&B album and i love it. Especially "If" I agree girl wasn't a strong single choice.

TWOTW is a classic album. They certainly peaked with that.

The Writing's on the wall

Their debut is very poor, but Writing's on the wall is just one of those fantastic R&B albums that really reflect how great R&B music was back then. It is a bit of a classic in my opinion and perhaps the best album ever by a girlgroup.

Survivor was a great follow up as well as is their second best. Their fourth and final album was very hit and miss for me though.

It has to be TWOTW, with Survivor second.

TWOTW for me, followed by destiny fulfilled. Survivor was a horrible attempt at a more pop-orientated sound. The production was a complete mess.

The Writing's On The Wall their absolute best album and a classic slice of 90's R&B everything they did after paled into comparison and beyonce herself only did another album that good for me with 4.

TWOTW by FAR - then Destiny Fulfilled, then the debut, then the abysmal Survivor - quite possibly the most disappointing follow-ups to a classic album in music history!! SOOOOO awful bar Independent Women and Bootylicious

The Writing's on the Wall was an amazing album. I feel like they peaked at that. Survivor was ok but I lost interest by Destiny Fulfilled and didn't even get the album.

Same her Survivor was pants full of dull filler and the choice singles much like Beyonce's ensuing solo projects except 4. Maybe she releases a decent album anually every decade
