This was Destiny's Child second album, released in 1999. This album is the epitome of late '90s/early '00s R&B music -- the good and the bad. It obviously sounds super dated now, but there's SO much nostalgia associated with it for so many people that it's a really enjoyable listen every once in a while.
AllMusic gave the album 4/5 stars:
With their second album, Writing's on the Wall, Destiny's Child still suffers from slightly uneven songwriting, but it's nevertheless an assured step forward for the girl group. Not only are they maturing as vocalists, they are fortunate to work with such skilled, talented producers as Kevin "Shekspere" Biggs, Rodney Jerkins, Dwayne Wiggins, Chad Elliot, Daryl Simmons, and Missy Elliott, who all give the quartet rich, varied music upon which to work their charm. So, even when the album fails to deliver memorable songs, it always sounds alluring, thanks to the perfect combination of vocalists and producers.
