S'il Suffisait D'aimer, in my opinion, is a phenomenal French album ever by Céline Dion. I believe many of the British and American fans of her English hits like Because You Loved Me, To Love You More and I'm Your Angel will learn to like her singing French, too! Here's why:
Ever since Jean Jacques Goldman worked with Céline in the album D'eux, Céline's french albums have markedly received greater recognition in countries like France and Canada (Quebec). In this album, one would probably find French songs never before sung like this.
All 12 songs are so fabulous and poetic, truly they are gems! Songs like Zora Sourit, On Ne Change Pas, Sur Le Même Bateau are songs describing metaphorically issues in life and yet filled with some suspense. Songs like Papillon, En Attendant Ses Pas and S'il Suffisait D'aimer simply make you cry because Céline uses are softer touch on those. If you are looking for something of a higher tempo, this CD has Dans Un Autre Monde, Terre and L'abandon to suit your individual's taste.
I especially like L'abandon. Even though I cannot understand a lot of French, but I enjoy this CD every bit.
