Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny's Child is the first Destiny's Child compilation since 2005's #1s and, unsurprisingly, it covers much of the same ground. Playlist is two songs shorter than the 16-track #1s, and they share 12 songs, including the hits "Survivor," "Soldier," "Lose My Breath," "Say My Name," "Bootylicious," "Bills Bills Bills," and "Girl." The other differences are minor -- not enough to recommend one disc over the other -- and both are excellent overviews of the biggest and best female R&B group of their time. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
