DO NOT under any circumstances waste your money on the Destiny's Child album on the basis of the brilliant single.

Far from heralding a great comeback, it is a false dawn.

The rest of the lp is full of the kind of syrupy, mooning over six foot men soulful gloop that you always skipped on Survivor and The Writing's on the Wall. Lurv songs, 'maturity', proper instruments, this is not what I want from DC. Furthermore, I can't see anybody else getting much out of this depressingly 'classic soul'-sounding set.

I can't tell you how disappointed I am.
