A New Day Has Comeby Celine Dion
A New Day Has Come marks Celine Dion's return to recording after a lengthy maternity leave, and charts the pop diva's growth as an artist and as a woman. Although Dion's songs have always been about the power of love (she wasn't mincing words when she titled her 1997 blockbuster Let's Talk About Love), maternal rather than romantic sentiment fuels her fire this time out. As she gushes on the uplifting title song (penned by '80s one-hit-wonder Aldo Nova), "Where there was weakness I've found my strength/All in the eyes of a boy." And Dion's lovefest with motherhood doesn't end there. On the heartfelt, country-tinged "Goodbye's (The Saddest Word)," the chanteuse muses, "There is no other love like a mother's love for her child," and on the anthemic, gospel choir-accented ballad "Prayer" -- which recalls Faith Hill's equally poignant "There Will Come a Day" -- she describes children as "the light" and "truth of spirit in flight." Along with newfound maternal instincts, the new songs reveal a more spiritual and edgier Dion. The songbird with glass-shattering chops sounds a bit like Sheryl Crow on the bluesy, honky-tonk rocker "Ten Days," but the lyrics still reach skyward: "Ten days I've seen the rain/Comin' down on a sunny day/But all I've got to do is pray and pray." Dion, however, hasn't stopped singing about romance altogether, and the soaring ballad "Have You Ever Been in Love," as well as her solid renditions of Nat King Cole's "Nature Boy" and Etta James's "At Last" should satisfy her lovelorn fans. It's obvious that for Celine Dion, A New Day Has Come.

a bit of lack of perfection in this new album although there were some surprising new Celion Dion style. Overall, I will rate it as an OK album. still like her first few albums the most!
Definitely Celine's best English album yet! Her style is more defined and refreshing. It is SO great to see Celine dominating the music world again and her title track ''A New Day Has Come'' is the perfect ''comeback'' ballad! Best of luck to Celine!!
In her other albums she was looking for love, she was heartbroken and melancholy. Now she's found a reason to live and it is beautifully represented on this album. Celine is the best at what she does.
I gave the album a 5 star review, so as not to kill the grading curve. Most people only take the time to write reviews if they like the material. Sure, the occasional person will give an album a zero rating if they hate the artist, but this usually happens only when someone that has an axe to grind writes the review and is not objective. I just wanted to sound off about people writing reviews of things they haven't heard!!!! How do you know you won't hate the next album????!!! Sure you probably like her last albums, but how do you know that this album won't be the ''Celine Dion perfoms the Beer Barrel Polka and other classic Polka hits''? Please reserve judgment until you actually hear the material!!!! Thank you, I will gently get off my soap box.
If you enjoy listening to music on your home or office computer, DO NOT buy this otherwise excellent CD.

i have always been a big fan of celine dion and nver had a single day without thinking of her. the release of this latest album just means so much not only to me but also to the rest of the world who loved her eversince she rose as a star.i have always looked up to her as a model, a role model and as my inspiration. she just means so much to me and i want the whole world to know that i spend my everday life with her. her voice just keeps ringing in my ears. i really dont care what other people say, it doesnt matter to me what they have to say because for me, she's just completely perfect...i wish i'd be able to see her in person one day, and hear her voice.
This CD is REALLY GOOD!!! I love it!! I think I have listened to it about 30 times!! My favorite songs are "I Surrender", "A New Day has Come", "The Greatest Reward", and more!! If you like Celine you'll love this CD!!! It's just wonderful!! She has an amazing beautiful voice!
I have to admit, I was hesitant in purchasing this cd after hearing the title track a New Day Has Come many times on the radio. This cd is a must. Her voice is incredible. I have never heard her sound better. This album certainly has an edge. You must hear the song "I Surrender"! Wow! What a song. No one could sing it better. Listeners will be surprised. This is truely her best album. I can't wait for more. So many wonderful tracks. This album has depth! A must!!!!!
The first time I heard Celine, in 1991. I could not stop listening to the cd. her voice was so fresh. Like nothing you had ever heard before. Eleven years later it still seems like that first time. I enjoyed this CD allot. Her voice still sounds brilliant. You never get tired of hearing it. My only complaint is small. A couple of the songs I could of did without. The song ''At Last,'' a A little to bluesy for my taste. And ''Nature Boy,'' A little to Old School for me. That kind of diversity I can do without. But hey that's only a couple of songs. The rest is pure Celine Magic.
Celine is back and better than ever! i am so glad that she came back after having some time off. I love all the songs on this album. They are wonderful. Celine is the best singer ever! I am a big fan of hers. I recommed this album to anyone who is a fan of Celine's. i promise you won't be disspointed.5 stars for a wonderful album. Keep up the great work. She's back!
I think celine dion rocks. She is so awesome and she has a powerful heart tugging voice
Just too cool! She is wonderful with this album. Best album in years,Celine's voice and lyrics are at their best. The songs of being a mommy hit home with alot of us American mom!Thank you Celine! Couldn't have done it any better.
I bought the album and all I can say is - WOW! Simply incredible. She left the game at the top and came back just as strong. Songs show her maturity as a person and her happiness as a mother and wife. She is in a wonderful state in her life and is taking us along for the ride. Her voice soars as always but with added depth and inspiration. GO OUT AND GET THIS ALBUM!
I do like Celine Dion, but I found most of her other albums to be a little boring, with only a few songs worth listening to. But I've listened to her new album, and it's a lot better than the others. I think it's definitely worth the hype that she's getting. She's back, and she's better than ever.
OUt of all the Celine Dion songs that I've heard this Celine album is the best out of all of them put together.
I also haven't heard Celine Dion's new album, and have to therefore base my opinion on her previous work...In doing so, I fully expect another over-dramatic, emotionally absent, over-produced, underwritten, ode to Celine from the new album...About as genuine as Britney, and nowhere near as talented an actress, Celine appears to repel talent on every level....
I´ve written a review about this album but i´m going to do more. Celine is the greatest female artist today her voice is so powerful that she will take your breath away listen to I Surrender WOW what a song and that voice of hers. Prayer is also powerful and is about the children in the world and was written for the tribut to heroes of the september 11th 2001 so was the album version A New Day Has Come listen closely and you will hear it. My special fave songs on this awesome comeback album are each and every song and that just shows us that miss dion rocks this planet.
This is Celine at her heartfelt best. Seeing the tears in her eyes in the video ''A New Day Has Come'' brought me to the realisation that it's time to move on in life. Her ability to touch mine and peoples emotions inspires me greatly. What a beautiful ballard, this song/album will help ease that pain. Celine Dion is heavenly, add it to your collection today.
I was so happy with this album.Great songs from the heart.she came back strong.
Celine Dion had now come to the point of her career when it¿s time to try new sounds and music. For some it¿s a shock! For some a surprise. The first time you hear the tracks there are some that are going to put themselves in your head whether you want them to or not. `Ten Days¿, `At Last¿, `Have You Ever Been In Love¿ and `Sorry For Love¿ are these `super hits¿. The single `A New Day Has Come¿ is a nice introduction to the album with the same name. So if Dion is ready enough to conquer the dance floor this summer she¿s going to release `Sorry For Love¿ with its bumping disco sound. And later with a true summer ballad, there¿s only one: ¿Have You Ever Been In Love¿ with its breath-taking way it¿s a true hit for a first-class soundtrack and a qualified candidate for the Oscar¿s® of ¿03. Also `I Surrender¿ could be one of the radio hits this summer. So now its up to Celine which one of these hits she¿s going to pop out after `A New Day Has Come¿
We recently saw her in person doing her new lead song. I never realized her voice was so beautiful. Absolutely fantastic.Unbeliavable stage presence . this will be the first album I've ever bought of hers.wonderful to hear
I have been a fan of Celine's for many years, she has made me smile, cry and want to dance and sing along. On her new album i found a new ''softer'' Celine on many of the songs.Its as if she no longer as anything to prove! Yea she still uses her 5 octives to full advantage on ''I surrender'', , ''Have you ever been in love'' and a few others but in general her vocals show a restraint and maturity.I love this album...the same Celine with a nice twist....listen to ''Rain,Tax(I'ts inevitable), and 'Im Alive'' , ''Ten Days 'and see for youself. Thank you Celine , you were missed!!!!!
I am sooooooo happy that Celine Dion is finally back!!!!! She is the greatest singer ever!!!! I LOVE her singing!! I sing to her music all the time. This new cd that just came out is great like all of her others are too. I give all of her cd's a 5 star and more even!!!Celine's music brings me up when I'm down. Whenever I hear her songs or sing to her music it helps soo much. She is such a great role model for me. If I ever make up my mind and decide to become a singer like I want to,I would like to become the type of singer that she is!!!!! I Love your singing Celine don't ever stop!!!
I agree with the last reviewer's opinion that we can't really judge this album until we hear it for oursleves. It may very well be ''Celine sings Polka'', or some other such nonsense, as he suggests. Truth be told, though- this Diva's track record speaks for itself! If this album is anything like her last dozen or so (recordings in both English AND French, I might add!) then it's sure to be an instant hit, if only for the fact that people have been waiting for it for so long and are sure to buy it like crazy! I must say that I too am glad to see Celine back so soon, and I don't think that her short absence from the business is going to have any negative impact on her career. I'm sure that both her fans and the various charts will attest to this. Anyway, welcome back, Diva!
