Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
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."

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
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.
Entertainment Weekly - Ken Tucker
"Having taken time off to give birth to her first child, Dion is back to celebrate the joys of motherhood, and you won't catch me knocking that. Indeed, grappling with something other than her own emotions and her perennial theme, recovering from heartbreak...has been good for her music."

    A New CelineA New Day.

    I Love Celine she is so amazing and her multioctaves voice shines through the whole album. This album shows new music from Celine like Rain´Tax, Ten Days,And spanishflours songs like Superlove and Aun Existe Amor with powerful ballads like I Surrender were Celine hits her amazing #F Note. After 2 years of hiatus a new babyboy Rene Charles Celine delivers her fans a celebration of her baby and an album about her new life that is the title of the album A New Day Has Come the song is beautiful and Celine sings on her low register vocals. The album version is also a radio edit that reached to the number#1 on the billboard top 200 and stayed there for 18 weeks it´s one of Celine´s biggest songs ever. Other songs are the number#1 single I´m Alive it´s my favorit and a great opening on this amazing album, Right In Front Of You a Steve Morales popsong,Have You Ever Been In Love a heartbreaking ballad it´s wonderful and is also on her One Heart Album. Prayer another breathtaking ballad about all the children in the world. This album is one of Celine´s best studioalbum she has ever made and has sold to date 15 million copies worldwide. Celine´s 7 octaves voice shines and she sings more natural than ever before she didn´t sing with her vocalteqniques but she sang with emotion and love and that makes her a true diva a true performer she is one of a kind and no one can outsing her. Producers Celine teams up with here are such heavies. Walter Afanasieff(Mariah Carey) on A New Day Has Come,A New Day Radioedit,Prayer and Nature Boy,Ric Wake(Anastacia) on i´m Alive A New Day Radio edit,When The Wrong One Loves you Right,Guy Roche(Christina Aguilera) on At Last,Superlove,Simon Franglen(David Foster´s session player) On I Surrender,Anders Bag&Arnthor(jennifer Lopez,Jessica Simpson) on Sorry For Love and Peer Astrom&Anders Bag on Have You Ever Been In Love and others. This album is a musthave.

    It's the best!

    Really didn't have any of her music before, but got hooked on the "Drove all night" song from commercials. The rest of the album is surprisingly great. Really recommend it.

    A New Day Has Come

    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.

    Celine´s comeback album is just awesome all the 17 songs sounds great she is my favorit singer and i recommend this album to all Celine fans and non fans there is songs for everyone on this beautiful album Celine still has powerful voice.The only wrong thing with this album is that Celine doesn´t sing with passion as on her previews albums but she sounds wonderful though my fave songs on this album are I´m Alive,A New Day Has Come,Prayer,Goodbye´s The Saddest Word,I Surrender,At Last,Sorry For Love,When The Wrong One Loves You Right,The Album Version and Nature Boy.Celine´s longtime producer Walter Afanasieff collaborates with her on 4 songs The Album Versions,Prayer and Nature Boy so is Ric Wake,Guy Roche among others.I Recommend this album it´s great.

    So So, not as great as those in the past

    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!

    She's Back!!!

    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!!!!!

    Incredible...One for any hopeless romantic!

    I am without doubt emotionally inspired by this unique album. Fresh from her maternity break, Celine has produced songs on this album that inspire the hopeless romantic in us all. I found "Right in Front of You" very addictive at first, but in particular, "Prayer" is the one I repeat over and over... This album is truly one for every home.

    Absolutely amazing: she gets better every time

    Hooray! Celine's back - and what a comeback she's made!!! Her album is absolutely amazing! My favourite tracks are: 1) Right in front of you 2) Alive 3) A New Day Has Come & 4) Goodbye's the saddest word. I fell in love with this album after playing it over and over - it is obvious that the joys of motherhood are present in her singing.

    Absolutely Beautiful

    This CD is beautiful. It's not very often that I find a CD where I like every single song. With the exception of 'Rain,Tax (It's Inevitable), which I did not care for, every other song is worth listening to over and over again. 'I'm Alive' and 'Tens Days' have a snappy beat and sound great. Wait until you hear the first notes of 'Have You Ever Been In Love'! Whew... its really good. 'Sorry For Love' and 'The Greatest Reward' are my favorites. I can't understand why these don't get air time on the radio. They will send chills down your spine. I can't wait for her to get set up in Las Vegas. Then I can experience her voice in person. This CD is worth every penny and then some!
