Falling Into You – Celine Dion

Canadian thrush Celine Dion is primarily a singles artist, which is a good thing, because the soaring, epic style she brings to nearly all of her material is thrilling in four-minute bursts, but nearly overwhelming at album length. Falling into You is Dion’s finest attempt to temper that approach–mixing low-key love songs and dance pop between showstoppers such as “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” and the Up Close and Personal movie theme, “Because You Loved Me.” Dion’s take on Tina Turner’s Phil Spector experiment “River Deep, Mountain High” is game, but there’s little doubt which singer hails from the Great White North and which one is from Nutbush, Tennessee.
