"Loved Me Back To Life" is Celine Dion's first English-language album in six years. The album will be released in the US on November 5. "Loved Me Back To Life" offered Celine the chance to work with a team of exceptional producers and songwriters including Ne-Yo, Diane Warren, Tricky Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Eg White, Daniel Merriweather, Babyface, Audra Mae Butts, Play Production, Eman, Janis Ian, Danny Mercer, Andrew Goldstein, Shaffer Smith, Jessi Alexander, Tommy Lee James, Corporal, Sauce, Kyle Townsend, Dana Parish, Andrew Hollander, Aaron Pearce, Kuk Harrell, and Walter Afanasieff. The album's single and title track was written by Sham & Motesart and Sia. In addition, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder lend their incredible talents as Dion's duet partners.
Having sold more than 220 million albums around the world, Celine Dion is one of the most immediately recognized, widely respected and successful performers in pop music history. She has been awarded five Grammy Awards, including Record Of The Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "My Heart Will Go On" and Album of the Year and Best Pop Album.
After five consecutive years of sold-out Las Vegas shows, Celine Dion returned to Caesars Palace for her all-new sold-out show "Celine Dion In Las Vegas." Her historic, original show, "A New Day Has Come," was one of the highest grossing concerts in music history, selling more than 3 million tickets in its run and helping make Celine the highest-grossing touring artist in the world from 2000 to 2010. Additional performances of "Celine Dion In Las Vegas" are scheduled later this year and into 2014. The powerful set features Dion's greatest hits, surprising covers and new songs featured on "Loved Me Back To Life."

Note: 2 new tracks ["How do you keep the music playing?", "Lullaby (Goodnight, my angel)"] are featured on the album's European deluxe edition along with a set of 4 collectible cards. The 2 tracks are, also, included on Target's exclusive edition.
My biggest criticism is that one should not talk about being weak and strong so many times on one album. Two different songs refer to the concept that her love/r makes her weak yet strong at the same time, and one of those song repeats the words/phrase several times. My guess is that the same lyricist wrote both, which makes it even less tolerable (but I could be wrong about that and I'm too lazy to look it up). It's just my opinion.
Lastly, I'm a bit confused. On the Celine Dion website, it lists 15 songs on this album, but my CD and my download had only 13. Maybe someone out there has an explanation for this phenomenon.
In this newest album, "Loved Me Back to Life," she allows herself to toy with her voice. In the title track, we experience a delicious new vibrato similar to Sia's, who also penned the song. We also get raw, unpolished notes in "Water and a Flame," a cover of Daniel Merriweather's hit song with Adele, and "Didn't Know Love" that bring more truth to the words found within the song. My favorite Celine moments come when she whispers in ballads and we get some major whisper moments which I die for.
We also get some covers on this album: Janis Ian's "At Seventeen," Billy Joel's "Lulluby" (both of which she covers in her Vegas spectacle `Celine'), "Overjoyed," in which she duets with Stevie Wonder, and the aforementioned "Water and a Flame."
Not shying away from the uptempo pop songs, Celine shows that she shouldn't be underestimated in the current pop world as she can give the majority of today's pop startlets a run for their money with groovy tracks like "Save Your Soul" and "Somebody Loves Somebody."
All in all, this newest work by pop superstar Celine Dion proves that she has solidified her spot in pop culture. She is in a place in her career where she can afford to have artistic liberty with new projects, and no matter how out-of-left-field her song selections may be, they fit perfectly within her repertoire, further proving that the woman can do no wrong with the voice she has.
