Overview

Something of a protégé of Celine Dion (he's managed by her husband and manager, René Angélil, and made his commercial breakthrough with a 2000 duet with Dion, "Sous le Vent"), Quebecois adult contemporary singer Garou (born Pierre Garand) has until now stuck to the French-language market. Piece of My Soul is his first English-language album, and it follows a similar formula to Dion's push into the Anglophone market a little over a decade before, featuring songs by Dion's core stable of songwriters (including 1980s one-hit wonder Aldo Nova, who co-wrote the title track and "Coming Home") as well as tracks by bigger names. Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas wrote the first single, the pop
ocker "Stand Up" (not a cover of the Ludacris single of the same name, which would have been as much a hoot as Dion's ill-advised take on AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long"), and the dramatic ballad "First Day of My Life" (already a 2006 hit for ex-Spice Girl Melanie C) was written by Enrique Iglesias. The pleasant songs and glossy radio-ready arrangements here seem quite calculated toward the American adult contemporary market.
