ACTUALLY THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE DVD AAND A GREAT ONE AT THAT
It's clear from the live performances on All the Way... A Decade of Song & Video that Celine Dion's audiences adore her. And what's not to adore? She's beautiful, talented, and--corny as it sounds--seems really nice. This 90-minute compilation features 12 videos and five live songs illustrating the French-Canadian singer's transformation from a perky teen to a sophisticated international star. In the early '90s, Dion sang boppy tunes such as "Mislead" and "Love Can Move Mountains." The mid-decade Dion (decidedly sexier) is represented by "Because You Loved Me," "The Power of Love," and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now." Her soaring voice is powerful and poignant, reminding us why Titanic's "My Heart Will Go On" became such a huge hit. The compilation is ballad-heavy, but her last video of the decade, "That's the Way It Is," marks a welcome return to her earlier, sassier manner. -- THE COMPLETE LIST IS AS FOLLOWS 1. Program start 2. The Power of Love 3. If You Asked Me To 4. Misled 5. Beauty and the Beast (duet with Terry Bradford) (taken from the Falling Into You concert in Memphis, Tennessee) 6. Because You Loved Me (Theme from Up Close and Personal) (taken from the Falling Into You concert in Memphis, Tennessee) 7. It's All Coming Back to Me Now (single version) 8. Love Can Move Mountains 9. To Love You More (featuring Taro Hakase) (taken from the Falling Into You concert in Memphis, Tennessee) 10. My Heart Will Go On (Love Theme from Titanic) 11. I'm Your Angel (duet with R. Kelly) 12. That's the Way It Is 13. If Walls Could Talk 14. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (taken from the All the Way... A Decade of Song 1999 CBS-TV special) 15. All the Way (duet with Frank Sinatra) (taken from the All the Way... A Decade of Song 1999 CBS-TV special) 16. Then You Look at Me 17. I Want You to Need Me 18. Live for the One I Love 19. Bonus video: It's All Coming Back to Me Now (stereo mix - long version)
She's top on my list of vocal performers. Those who like Celine Dion will enjoy this collection! Celine Dion's videos are touching, and her chameleonic style has followed her down the well travelled road of success. The duet "To love you more" is and will always be my fave. Celine sings this song with her famous on-key wailing, showing her lung power and talent. You can watch it again and again and agian and you'll never get bored. Also I have to mention here that the DVD qality is superb. 9/10 FOR LACK OF ANY GOOD EXTRA FEATURES
