A great album to leave her fans with; 7 great new songs
on November 17, 1999
Celine saved the best for last. Not so much for the 9 previous hits, but for the 7 great new songs that capture the totality of Celine's talent from up tempo music to the big ballads to the soft gentle sounds. If you haven't bought a Dion album before, and wonder if she is more than a loud singer, buy this album. There is more to her than you may have heard. Her rendition of the Roberta Flack tune, First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, is soft and memorable. If Walls Could Talk displays the music magic of Shania Twain's husband, Mutt Lange, and even Shania makes a cameo appearance on background vocals. That's the Way It Is is a toe-tappin' hit. When You Look at Me reunites Horner and Dion and it is unforgetable. The song, the title track from the upcoming Chris Columbus movie Bicentennial Man, and starring Robin Williams, is arguably a better song than My Heart will Go On and looks like another Oscar contender for best song from a movie. Live, from the French play Notre Dame de Paris, has the sound of one of the best broadway songs you've ever heard. And All the Way, the duet with Sinatra, and Celine's 1994 wedding song, is a classic. If you like great singing of great songs, this is the album for you.
