This has the best song which Celine has ever sung
Doubters who expect little from Celine Dion but turgid ballads will be surprised by her return to recording after several years. On A New Day Has Come, the big production numbers most associated with the Canadian superstar's name ("My Heart Will Go On," "Because You Loved Me") are evoked by the two versions of "I Surrender" and somewhat lifeless covers of "At Last" and "Nature Boy." At the same time, though, Dion shows her willingness to stretch on the classic-house homage "Sorry for Love" and the unavoidably catchy "Right in Front of You" and "Ten Days." The album's unexpected, often low-key production allows Dion to emote in a straightforward way that gracefully skirts the chest thumping of past days, and the relative subtlety works in her favor. Still, New Day will hardly prove a shocker for her many fans. Crowning the conservative Dion a forward-thinking diva seems a bit premature, but this agreeable record opens the door to such a possibility. --Rickey Wright

The title track "A New Day Has Come" is definitely one of my faves, and although I really don't normally like many Radio Re-Mixes, I think this one is really well done, and does not take away from the song as most do, In fact I think it adds to the song giving it a punchy feel that just works oh so well. I find myself listing to the track over and over. Don't get me wrong both the orig and the Re-Mix are equally good, I just prefer the Re-Mix.
"I'm alive" and "Right In Front Of You" are 2 other tracks I really like. Celine's voice on these tracks sounds amazing. It really does make one feel alive.
The sound on this CD is top notch with an open airy quality that is never harsh or fatiguing. The vocal recording is excellent, truly transparent showcasing the true power of her voice. This CD really has nice punch and definition, bass is never muddy. The mix is crystal clear, I wish all CD's sounded this good.
Overall a great addition to anyones CD collection.
1. This disc contains one of Celine's greatest hits, A New Day Has Come, in two great arrangements. This song tells us about a heart who had almost lost hope and who found its strength again. This is one we all can relate to.
2. A diverse mix of dance-able pop songs including "Right In Front of You" and "Sorry for Love" and powerful slow songs such as "I Surrender" and "Prayer" and as a bonus, fantastic renditions of the classics "At Last" and "Nature Boy", and you've got something for everyone. You won't be disappointed.
3. There are a generous sixteen tracks on the disc, which means you won't get tired of this album very quickly.
4. If you buy it used, like I did, then you're only paying approx. $5 including shipping. So what are you waiting for? Trust me - if you are anything like a fan of Celine's you need this album.
I'll give you my favorite tracks just in case:
1.A New Day Has Come- of course
2.Right In Front of You- wonderfully light and airy
3.I Surrender- Celine's best performance of the album
4.Prayer- fantastic songwriting
5.Goodbye's (The Saddest Word)- a heartbreaking song about her mother
Celine doesn't seem to be giving the 110% vocal excellence that her listerners have come to love from her previous work - but alas, she is an aging artist. I still regard her as one of my all-time favorite vocalists.
I'd recommend this album only to hardcore Celine fans. Her latest rates slightly better than previous albums, in my book.
