At times, the production is too slick, at other times Dion's vocals are a ...

At times, the production is too slick, at other times Dion's vocals are a little mannered, but overall, These Are Special Times is very effective, because the songs are good and she's committed to the material. Any fan of Dion, or of '90s adult contemporary pop in general, should find this very enjoyable. [The import edition adds a version of "My Heart Will Go On" without lead vocals]
