    Bland, boring pace too many ballads!!!!!

    As much as I like If You Asked Me To, Beauty and the Beast and the funky Love Can Move Mountains, the rest of Celine Dion's 1992 album fails to match to those quality songs. The pace of the album is surprisingly BORING and DULL! After Love Can Move Mountains is 5 straight ballads back to back. Celine's got a great voice, but a majority of the ballads come off as light, airy, and bland. Walter Afanasieff and David Foster and a few other producers have the music so overly slick it's scary. And the Diane Warren written songs come off as sappy as your typical Hallmark card commercial. To me, Celine got better on her later albums Colour of Our Love, Falling Into You and Let's Talk About Love, albums that had greater material and musical depth. Most of this '92 album doesn't hold up today like her songs from '93, '96 or '97. Or her superior 1990 US debut. So I would pass on this album if you want to hear her earlier songs.

    Celine at her Best

    I have several of her CDs and of them all this is my very favorite. It will touch you emotionally and her voice is just beautiful. I usually have a few favorite songs on a CD but this one is ALL good.

    Celine at her best

    To me this album is the best she has ever done. She is very romantic with it. If you have not heard this album and you are a fan of hers I strongly suggest that you hear it. A beautiful piece of work!!!

    The Beauty Of Celine

    Celine´s second album is amazing when i wrote about this album 2 years ago i ment every word but i wan´t to review about the album again and better now because when this album was released in march 30th 1992 on her 24 birthday she were at her best and this album made her the biggest selling (female)international star in music history and today Celine´s albums has sold to date 180 millions copies worldwide. Michael Jackson has sold 220 millions so Celine is in second place of album sales. My favorit songs are all the songs they are powerful and beautiful and my special fave is Beauty and The Beast with Peabo Bryson and Nothing Broken but My Heart. Producers. Walter Afanasieff(Mariah Carey)Ric Wake,Guy Roche and Humberto Catica. Celine´s 7-8 octave voice shines trough this amazing album.
