The three new songs are amazing; it's a shame they won't do much, because the current generation wants generic, auto-tuned trash.

Having a listen through it now. It's not too bad but many of the songs sound like recycled music from 5 years ago, in general it's just too long with not much that stands out. Almost every song i can draw clear similarities to other songs from 2012-17.

 

To summarise, i've always considered Celine more of a performer (and a bloody good one at that) rather than an artist and this album confirms to me that my thoughts remain accurate.

Interesting take. interesting1

I have yet to listen to it. I’m going out this morning to buy the CD to add to my collection and will listen to it later. I would agree that she was never an artist. The songs she has been doing since Taking Chances have been all about the performance factor, either in Vegas or on Tour.

Ok aretha1

I’ve had a chance to listen to the whole 20 tracks just now, and let me say, I was so bored eve1

The lead singles were as good as it gets, ‚ÄúImperfections‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúLying Down‚ÄĚ are classic C√©line. The rest of the album played it rather safe. After 6 years, she has decided to stick to the same formula that worked 2007-2013. ¬†

 

She also needs someone strong on her team - it really shows with Rene gone that she needs someone to edit her. Not all 20 songs needed to be heard. ‚ÄúSay Yes‚Ä̬†is horrible and ‚ÄúFor The Lover I Lost‚ÄĚ lacks emotional connection by Celine to even be considered. ‚ÄúBaby‚Ä̬†was terrible, too.

 

I did like ‚ÄúThe Chase‚ÄĚ, a country-style vocal arrangement saved it. Also, ‚ÄúThe Hard Way‚ÄĚ - a good album ending.¬†

I just listened to the album today in full.

The album is definitely classic Celine, and I didn't hear anything I hadn't heard before from her.

There were a couple of tracks I did like though: "Falling in Love Again", "Lying Down", "Courage", "The Chase", "Baby", "Look At Us Now" , "Perfect Goodbye" were some standouts for me, but the rest seemed to blend together. 

I'm sure the live performances are incredible, but I wasn't blown away by this album.
