Quite a few of my reviews use the word `camp' and this - Dear Reader - might have given you an idea about my artistic proclivities and aesthetic leanings.

I'd remained largely indifferent to Celine Dion until I heard this track; despite her seemingly easy fit into what one might call my `cultural bent' I found her too clinical, too hygienic, too clean to be of any interest. Her take, however on `River Deep Mountain High' (a cultural text already moist with campy allusions) caught me unawares. If I tell you I came across it by chance, having listened to a CD I bought for my Mother, the situation just about becomes unbearably giddy does it not?

Recorded, by the sound of it, in an echoey cavern just east of Hades, Celine emotes like a woman possessed. Her producer seemingly provokes an apparently insane keyboard player to deliver synth stabs at a rate even Divine would have baulked at and paradoxically a guitarist to deliver a performance so inert even an earthed plug would have seemed festive with energy. Elsewhere glistening muscle men pound bongos remorselessly in fear of never seeing their vests returned and backing vocalists sign a pact with Satan in order to reach Celine's - by now - stratospheric vocal delivery. Yes, it's a bit over the top this.

Play this - particularly alone and after a few pints - and I guarantee that even the most determinedly heterosexual alpha jock, will be swinging an imaginary tambourine and singing into his deodorant can after the first chorus. Its like an alchemist finally bottled the essence of Larry Grayson and turned it into sound.

Euphoric.
