Top critical review
Good album if you like her vocals a lot.

Hmm tough this one. I thought I would like it much more. The theme from Titanic is about the only tune I like at the moment. The rest are OK in their own way but I realised I am not a fan of Celine as a vocalist.
My Heart Will go On is sung Gently. Basically the rest of the album has many songs that are sung with hard vocals. Right from Think Twice it all starts getting gets forced 'rrrr' sounding. The second verse of Think Twice is painful. (Strange because I used to love it.)
I can cope with the CD as background music, on low volume, say while browsing. However then it is really only a musical tune bouncing along. Often the vocals way overpower the music so I have to reduce volume. I can't really hear the instruments but I can hear her belting in my headphones.
A New Day has Come, and Taking Chances are fairly tempered too, so good tunes.
At Amazon price though, it's hard to say that I don't like it. I just hadn't noticed her as a little more than occasionally unpleasantly belting before.
3.5/5 stars really, but not rounded up to four stars as that would make it look too hot.
