The r&b group known as Destiny's Child have created some of the best and most fondly remembered r&b/pop hits of the past 10 years. Now, as they approach a final breakup of the group, the greatest hits collection #1's provides the opportunity to relive the group's abundant instantly catchy and memorable recordings. This set is a must for new Destiny's Child fans and a handy all-in-one-place collection for long-time followers.
All Of the Key Hits
The best aspect of #1's is there is nothing missing here from among the group's best work, and there is very little filler. Those who already own Destiny's Child's 4 proper studio albums will have the bulk of these songs, but weeding out lesser album tracks makes #1's a Destiny's Child album filled simply with the great moments. The group has always been a singles oriented act and the consistent quality of this set compared with the studio albums proves that fact.

Destiny's Child Will Be Missed
Earlier in 2005 Destiny's Child announced that they will go their separate ways by the end of the year. The news was not surprising as the group has always been made up of 3 or 4 not so easy pieces. The massively successful solo career of Beyonce Knowles and desire of Kelly Rowland to create her own work certainly must be contributing factors to the breakup. They will be missed. "Stand Up For Love," one of the new songs on #1's demonstrates just how impressive Destiny's Child can be when given a good song and a strong production environment. They can sing, and they effortlessly project personality.
A Must For New Destiny's Child Fans
#1's is a must for those who don't already own music by Destiny's Child. It is a neat, concise package that contains the key moments in the group's history. For committed fans that already own a siginificant amount of Destiny's Child music, it is more of a borderline purchase. The single disc collection of the hits is handy and 2 new songs make it a bit more attractive as a purchase. This will be one of the top hits collections of the Christmas 2005 season.
