2007 French language album not scheduled for release in the US. This album is a concept project in that all the song lyrics have been written by female writers from France and Quebec. There are many collaborators: Françoise Dorin, Christine Orban, Nina Bouraoui, Marie Laberge, Lise Payette, Denise Bombardier, Nathalie Nechtschein and Janette Bertrand. The themes throughout this album are all related to the 'woman'. Many of Celine's long-time friends and collaborators, including Jean-Jacques Goldman, participated in this project. Although Goldman did not write any of the songs for this album, he supervised the project and arranged the song lyrics. Music composers include Jacques Veneruso, David Gategno, Erick Benzi and Gildas Arzel. 14 tracks including the first single 'et S'il N'en Restait Qu'une (Je Serais Celle-là)', Sony/BMG.

But I love celine's french songs & french musicals so i'm going to do this review track by track.
Et S'Il N'En Restait Qu'Une (Je Serais Celle-Là)
The first track of this album is a very dramantic song that could used for a musical also i saw beautiful video fused with kingdom hearts(my favorite video game for ps2)and another video with a translation that's blocked on youtube cause of region
The Translated verison means this And If There were Only One(I Would Be That one)while my translation said Remained.
first translation is the best one. 10/10 stars
Second track after the first a beautiful song about the ups & downs and beauties of life through of feelings of love
a very meaningful song.10/10 stars
a song that should've been played in clubs if not already.
This is the danceable version of it. note there is an extended version on youtube.translation:Because
Je Cherche l'Ombre
a song about the love celine & her husband had and having to hide thier realationship from the world because of her carrer as a singer & also wanting her freedom as woman/mother to get away from fame & being herself again
it has the feeling of a black & white movie with old style of french music with an accordion bend.
translation:I seek the Shadows.
so is a dark song... 10/10 stars for its beauty & darkness.
Paradise is the english title
this song reminds me of if you asked me to from celine dion in 1992 also is about first love & wanting to find it again in heaven. 8/10 stars for its dark & morbid meaning.
the song starts out with an old recording of maria callas singing Si, Mi Chiamano Mimi from puccini's 1896 opera la boheme
then celine sings about the tragedy of callas's final days in her life & how she(celine)says how her music saved & inspired
her become a singer near the end of the song celine sings with maria callas.I don't really think celine is suited for singing opera & should stick to what she's great at. 5/10 stars for effrot.
Femme Comme Chacune
a song about love bewteen women of the same sex.
translation:Woman As Each 10/10 stars for it's great beat.
Si J'Étais Quelqu'Un
This song reminds of if walls could talk from all the way...a decade in song.
translation:If I Was Somebody 9/10 stars.
Je Ne Suis Pas Celle
this song sounds simalar to J'ai Peur from Roméo & Juliette de la Haine a l'Amour sung by Damien Sargue.
translation:I Am not That 10/10 stars.
Le Temps Qui Compte
a upbeat song about love & how we should make it last
translation:The Time That Counts 10/10 stars for wonderful meaning.
Lettre de George Sand a Alfred De Musset
this starts with celine talking in french then sings reminds of a musical flim first with dialoge then when there's no more words left to say... Sing about it! & its about love so i love this song very poetic & romantic.
another reviewer says its weak & boring but that's what opinions are for.
translation:Letter of George Sand to Alfred De Musset 10/10 stars for it's romanticism.
On S'Est Aimé A Cause
The ballad version of a cause. lyrics by Françoise Dorin & music by Marc Dupré and Jean-François Breau
translation:We loved each other because! Ten stars for both versions.
the last track from this album. A beautiful track it's about her son René-Charles Dion Angélil having some trouble with his mother work in Las Vegas.
p.s:there's only the cd no dvd or a mini-booklet of Dion's photos and her personal notes about each song, a mini-booklet with song lyrics, and four postcards.the dvd includes the making of the album in a recording studio, behind-the-scenes from Et S'Il N'En Restait Qu'Une (Je Serais Celle-Là)music video & photo shoot for the album. So i'm going get that version somewhere esle. Don't be scamed out of your money.
Every song is amazing, my absolute favorite is the instant classic on s'est aimé a cause, other highlights are la diva, the incredibly heartbreaking je ne suis pa celle, the beautiful Si J'etais quelq'un and the gorgeous closer Berçeuse
This is an absolute gorgeous album and it's one of my favorites of all time. I listen to it all the time.
If you love 'The French Album' and 'On Ne Change Pas' ... do purchase this. These three albums alone were worth the wait for her gifts are majestic in French. Thank you Celine for you will never know what your music has done for me. I listen to the voice yet my heart hears the notes...you are an angel and an instrument from above.
A woman fully embraced.
Bravo Celine... A standing ovation!!!
