The Colour Of My Love – Celine Dion

“The Power of Love” was Celine Dion’s first chart-topping song in America, but it was a career-defining moment in more ways than one. It established her as a dependable hitmaker and also fixed the pattern of her biggest successes to come–songs that begin with delicate melodies and spare instrumentation and build into big, powerful productions over which Dion’s incomparable vocals hit stratospheric heights. Dion attempts other directions on The Colour of My Love, such as the light dance-pop of “Misled” and “Everybody’s Talkin’ My Baby Down,” but they don’t ring as true as her duet with Clive Griffin in “When I Fall in Love” (from the film Sleepless in Seattle) and the title track.
