Celine Dion .... The world's most versatile singer!,
By A Customer
This review is from: A New Day Has Come (Audio CD)
Celine's new album is proof of how versatile this singer is. She can sing any type of song and has the vocal capabilities to do this. There is a song on this album to suit every musical taste.
The one thing lacking throughout the album is at least one David Foster production. David Foster has brought out the best of Celine's magnificent voice in the past - helping to bring out the true emotion of a lyric. Songs like 'The Colour of my Love','God Bless America' and 'Live (For The One I Love)' are true masterpieces.
This is a very good album. In my opinion, the most commercial (radio-friendly) album that Celine has recorded. However, for the die-hard fan - it is a shift from her adult contemporary roots. There is also a slight lack of emotion (prevailent in previous albums) throughout this album - especially in the ballads.
'Prayer' is the best ballad on the album. Celine's voice is awesome and she also portrays Corey Hart's lyrics so so well. "Can we touch the soul of heaven... can we unite a sacred lesson... Brilliant track!
'Rain,Tax (It's Inevitable)' - Celine's voice is excellent on this track - she is able to adapt her voice to give the track a real funky R&B feel. Excellent!!
'Ten Days' is also good and very different for Celine. Again, shows how versatile this singer is.
All in all, it's a very good album - a lot of variety and a definite album for any music lover.
Let's hope that Celine's next album will be more adult contemporary - with David Foster - that's why we die hard fans like Celine Dion. There's plenty of other singers to provide the world with pop music - Madonna, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Cher......!!!
Overall..... this album is definitely a lot better than Celine's last album Let's Talk About Love. Vocally, this album is 110% fantastic right throughout the entire album, whereas LTAL was not.
A New Day has definitely come for Celine...!!
